STARRING: David Carradine, Simone Griffeth, Sylvester Stallone, Mary Woronov, Roberta Collins, Martin Kove

1975, 78 Minutes , Directed by: Paul Bartel

Paul Bartel's 1975 cheap-o satire about a futuristic international sport--an anything-goes car race where drivers score points for hitting pedestrians--stars David Carradine as a hero behind the wheel and Sylvester Stallone as his nemesis.

Roger Corman quickie about a cross continental race in which the aim is to kill off not only your opponents but as many pedestrians as possible. (You get extra points for easy targets such as babies and pensioners.) Black humour stuff in case you haven't caught on yet.

Some gratuitous fake violence with lots of ketchup, some terribly campy leather outfits, outrageous cars, yucky ‘Seventies hair styles, porn movie music make for one of my favourite bad movies of all times. Don't miss it.

Interesting to note that this was Sylvester Stallone's movie debut and he plays a surprisingly large role in the thing. Popular myth has it that he only got a few T-Shirts for starring in the thing, but that was the way Roger Corman made movies!


Sci-Fi Movie Page Pick: One of my favourite bad movies of all time - bad outfits, music, acting, hairstyles and a wickedly twisted screenplay makes for an excellent bad movie.
