4.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Car Chase Film and a Once-Familiar Horror, 20 May 2013

This review is from: Dirty Mary Crazy Larry & Race With the Devil [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Dirty Mary Crazy Larry now has cult status among fans of the once very popular car chase movie scene. The characters played by Peter Fonda and Susan George are not likeable and the film jumps through all the usual hoops (on the run after a robbery, carrying out impossible repairs in a barn, escaping less-than-competent police, etc.) It shouldn't amount to much but somehow it's become the chase film by which others are measured.

When it finished doing the circuits of local flea-pit cinemas, Race With the Devil used to be screened every few months on late night UK TV (or possibly it just seemed that way). Peter Fonda, Warren Oates, Loretta Swit and Lara Parker holidaying in a land-cruiser with some dirt-bikes strapped to the back witness a Satanic ritual and find themselves made the quarry of a high-speed, adrenalin-fueled chase.

Either of these films from a thankfully pre-CGI age would be a must-buy for action-and-speed fans. Together, they're unmissable.
