Editorial Reviews

Frank (Warren Oates) and Roger (Peter Fonda) take off for Colorado with their wives in a recreational vehicle, looking forward to some skiing and dirt biking. While camping en route, they witness a satanic ritual sacrifice, but the local sheriff finds no evidence to support their claims and urges them to continue on their vacation. On the way, however, they find themselves fleeing repeated attacks from cult members.

Take a moment and think about the worst vacation you ever had...I've had a few doozys, but I think the absolute worst involved a time when I was in Florida and I got an ear infection for a few days and my activities were confined to laying on my side and administering liquid antibiotics into my ear via a medicine dropper. My point is everyone has had at least one vacation that didn't turn out as expected, but I think few could top the nightmare encountered by the two couples in the film Race with the Devil (1975), when they inadvertently incurred the wraith of a backwoods cult of Satanic devil worshippers. Co-written by Wes Bishop (Chain Gang Women, The Thing with Two Heads) and Lee Frost (Policewomen, Dixie Dynamite), the film was directed by Jack Starrett, who also appearing in a number of films, but many may remember him from is role as the purposely stereotypical western curmudgeon Gabby Johnson from Mel Brooks 1974 film Blazing Saddles. Starring in Race with the Devil is Warren `Quaker' Oates (Dillinger, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia) along with Peter `One Toke Over the Line' Fonda, who, by the way, is set to appear in the new Ghost Rider film as the character of Mephisto. Also appearing is Loretta `Hot Lips' Swit ("M*A*S*H", Freebie and the Bean), Lara Parker ("Dark Shadows"), R.G. Armstrong (Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, White Lightning), along with co-writer Bishop (he plays the character of Deputy Dave), and director Starrett, in his seminal role as `Gas Station Attendant'.

It seems two married couples, Frank (Oates) and Alice (Swit) Stewart and Roger (Fonda) and Kelly (Parker) March are finally taking a vacation, after five, long years building up a now successful motorcycle dealership.

There's always been something disarming about the presence of Peter Fonda in a picture. Perhaps it's his 'nice guy' presence and you'd be right to assume that his starring in a horror movie would work against it. Not so in this case. Together with Oates and their stage wives, Fonda's presence is a good way of making of the terror strike home. The two couples are all-American high-end middle class types and they love living life to the fullest extent. And so they make a china shop ready for the horror bull to enter. The movie isn't as slow-moving as it may seem by the clock, it's just that there is a great deal of momentum being pent up in the early portions. When the scares actually do start, they are powerful and genuinely chilling. Let it be known that Satanist-bashing horror pictures were fairly common in the first half of the Seventies and here we find a whole string of Texan communities hard at it. The film is just the right length and its delivery is augmented tremendously by the dark conclusion. Despite the content, this film is watchable at all levels. I saw it when I was 10 years old and found it delightfully chilling. The direction is top rate and first class performances are extracted from Fonda and Oates. Truly an overlooked classic from a particularly adventurous era of fright cinema.

What makes this movie so scary is that the people who are the monsters are the most ordinary people you could think of; gas station attendants, RV park retirees, Country Western bands and a local sheriff or two...and the premise is deceptively simple: two couples go on vacation in an RV big enough to house a family of twelve (only slight exaggeration) and on the FIRST night Warren Oates and Peter Fonda (after making the first mistake of turning off the main road and going off on their own into unknown territory in a well-intentioned effort to avoid crowds...) witness a Satanic Cult sacrifing a young girl...and Loretta Swit unwittingly becomes the catalyst for their unwanted attention by yelling at her husband to come in...then the story takes off in a hurry. And all the time there really are monsters everywhere you look...the same sort of every day plausible situation anyone could conceivably find themselves in; a Satanic version of Deliverance...another seemingly innocent situation that started out to be a simple canoe ride downriver turned into the nightmare from Hell.

What is so disturbing here is that no matter where they go or how far or how innocent the people they encounter along the way seem, all are against them and the ending is really terrifying and a genuine shocker. You don't get to relax for one single second; it is a fast nightmare ride, with pieces of the RV flying off, the women screaming and the men yelling and all sorts of nasty surprises along the way, culminating in the aforementioned, even more disturbing, climax. Well worth the price, great entertainment.

It is not often that I watch, let alone review a movie of this genre but this one in particular left an indelible impression on me as a child. Like several of the previous reviewers, I first
saw this film at a drive-in in the summer of 1976 with my dad and brother. It was not uncommon then to see a movie circulating in the drive-in theatres a full year after its release. The VCR and VHS were still several years away.
Roger (Peter Fonda) and Frank (Warren Oates) are owners of a custom motorcycle business on vacation with their wives to Aspen, Colorado, traveling in a luxurious new RV with all the
amenities imaginable in 1975. (The color TV, the stereo, microwave oven...goahlly!). On their first night camping out in a remote area, they witness a human sacrifice in the distance as
part of a satanic ritual taking place across the river. All hell breaks loose when the two are discovered and a vicious pursuit of the foursome ensues escalating into several attacks and car chases. Throughout the film, the motorhome is damaged and falls apart piece by piece as a metaphor for the group's shattered sense of security, diminishing sanity and a dream vacation which has turned into a run for their lives!
The movie's shock value for me was diminished only as a result of my vivid memories of several scenes and due neither to the passage of time nor maturity when I finally saw it for the first time in over two decades. It was still as chilling today as it was when I first saw it a quarter of a century ago!
Don't let the critics' maligning criticism dissuade you from watching this flick. (Hey, how many of us buy a book because it's on Oprah's list anyway?
