Great Double Bill,
This review is from: Dirty Mary Crazy Larry & Race With the Devil [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
"Dirty Mary Crazy Larry" - Using a 440 Magnum Dodge Charger as the main getaway vehicle, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry is one of the best cult car chase movies out there. No CGI or messing with the camera speed in this film. What you see is what you get. I loved this film when I saw it in the 70s, Speed, Location, Cool Cars and what an superb Ending! English director John Hough has succeeded in making one of the all time great muscle car chase films. James W. Gavin the helicopter pilot was absolutely brilliant, one particular scene is breathtaking, it has been copied and varied many times since. In all, it's aged well and easily stands alongside all other films in this genre. It should be released as a Region 2 DVD, it would make a mint.
Bonus : "Ride The Wild Side" - making of.. provides some great insights into the making of the film.
"Race with the Devil" - Another cult Road/Horror film with a terrific ending. This time the pursued are in a 40ft RV, an unusual vehicle for a chase. However the film is taught and suspenseful throughout. (I don't want to give too much away!)
Both films are worthy on their own, to get them together a bonus.
