Andrew T.’s Late Late Late Show – Death Race 2000

In honor of this weekend’s Indy 500, I offer this drive-in favorite produced by Roger Corman.

It’s the year 2000 and Death Race is the nation’s favorite pastime.  It’s a cross country race, a la Cannonball Run, except the racers can score points by hitting pedestrians.  Rules and scoring are explained around the six minute mark.

Watch for Grasshopper himself, David Carradine and a very young Sylvester Stallone.

Enjoy this clip and stick around for geriatrics day at the old folks home at the end.  It’s all pretty silly.

  1. Great movie with a nice touch of political satire. The recent "remake" misses the comedic touches entirely.

  2. Fantastic! I haven't seen this before, but Dave has, all he had to do was hear the announcer and he knew right away. Apparantly he's see it. I feel out of the loop! I'm going to have to do something about that.
