Death Race 2000 (David Carradine Birthday Celebration)
Our annual commemoration of the life and work of one of our favorite actors and friends!
Get set for Death Race 2000, a lethal coast-to-coast, no-holds-barred orgy of fast cars and flattened bodies in mankind’s greatest sporting event ever. Drivers David Carradine, Sylvester Stallone, Roberta Collins, Martin Kove and cult movie icon Mary Woronov are putting the pedal to the metal, on the run to outmaneuver one another in Paul Bartel’s biting satire on America’s thirst for violence, as pitch black as it is blood red, beautifully shot by Tak Fujimoto (fresh off Malick’s Badlands), fine-tuned to optimum performance by ace editor Tina Hirsch, and gloriously well-deserved of its infamous Ebert zero-star review denouncing the film for being in “poor taste, unnecessarily gratuitous in both nudity and violence.” In our words, a classic!
“Death Race 2000 is as Corman as his B-grade action pics come, with cars flying through the frame, blood spilling behind them, and overnight pit-stops for some sex” – Matthew Sorrento, Film Threat
