Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Larry (Peter Fonda) is a former NASCAR racer looking to score some quick cash. Mary (Susan George) is a sexy groupie aching to take a fast ride. Together with mechanic Deke (Adam Roarke), they pull off a cold-blooded supermarket heist and hit the highway in Dirty Mary Crazy Larry. Now there is a maniacal lawman (Vic Morrow) on their trail, an entire police force in pursuit and hundreds of miles of roadblocks between their 69 Charger and freedom. Buckle up for the action classic that blows the doors off all other car chase films as it speeds toward one of the most jaw-dropping finales in movie history. Directed by John Hough (The Legend Of Hell House, The Incubus).
For old friends Roger (Fonda) and Frank (Warren Oates) and their wives (Lara Parker, Loretta Swit), it was supposed to be the best damn vacation they ever had. But their RV road trip takes a deadly detour at a secluded campsite when they accidentally witness a satanic sacrifice in Race With The Devil. Now horror hits the highway as the couples are pursued by satanic cultists through some of the most intense car chases and into one of the greatest twist endings in drive-in movie history. Directed by Jack Starrett (The Losers, Cleopatra Jones), who was also an actor and played the memorable role of the vicious Deputy Galt in First Blood.

Race With The Devil is a very different, yet also incredibly cool movie. You gotta be a fan of seventies/eighties films to really "get" and enjoy these films, now I myself am sixteen, which should just go to show you dont have to be an old timer to enjoy these flicks. I really dug RWTD, it was fun, exciting, and actually WAS kinda scary, I'm a pretty big Warren Oats fan, especially after I saw Two-Lane Blacktop a couple years ago, and Peter Fonda is just wonderful. Especially as a second billed film, it was great. And the special feature documentary on RWTD is pretty cool, it's got Fonda in it talking about the production and what not. Anyway, if you dig old-school car films and horror films, check this one out, and for TEN dollars you really cant go wrong, a real treat, rich and exciting, like biting into a candy bar at the drive in, you'll feel like a kid again. :)
The special features look to be carried over from past transfers and the sound is nothing to write home about...but to get these two Peter Fonda classics in one package for around ten bucks, it's a steal!
Shout! is doing pretty good work on their releases and this is another good one! Can't wait to get the Ron Howard double featureThe Ron Howard Action Pack (Eat My Dust! / Grand Theft Auto) [Roger Corman's Cult Classics]

Here it is two years later and Shout finally releases these on blu ray! And the blu ray is cheaper than the DVD I purchased a few years ago. And the blu rays blow away the DVDs. As much as I love Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry I am glad I double dipped. If you have the chance, grab this on blu ray. The format keeps proving to me that it is MUCH better than standard DVD (no matter how old the movie).
RACE WITH THE DEVIL starts out well enough and then quickly turns into a homicidal, paranoia-fueled, nightmare ride! It's one of those films where you find yourself yelling at the characters to NOT do this or DO that because, unlike them, you've seen this kind of situation before in other films and know they're headed for trouble but you want to see them make it through safely. Surprisingly, this movie actually gets better as it rolls along. The stunt work is ambitious, amazingly intense and very well-done for a low budget drive-in film. Good performances all around in this one. The ending was the only really "bad" part of the movie, for me. Still, even with the downer (yet somehow still sort of vaguely open-ended) finale, I enjoyed this film. It was an engrossing road trip from, to, and thru Hell.
This Blu-ray is well-presented and a really good bargain. The print transfers look quite good for both movies and the video & audio are strong & solid, with crisp colors, sharp focus and clear sound. Extras include trailers for both, plus each film has a newly-shot Making Of mini feature going into detail about the films. A nice touch that sadly isn't done enough on older, obscure films like these. I liked them both. 3 stars for DIRTY MARY, CRAZY LARRY and 5 stars for RACE WITH THE DEVIL... so I split the difference and gave this double feature Blu-ray 4 stars.

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry was OK. I couldn't get through Race with the Devil. I never knew Susan George was British. The accent slipped a couple times.Published 2 months ago by Super Seven
