Film synopsis

Get ready for a killer ride in these cult 70s exploitation classics from legendary B-movie producer Roger Corman! Death Race 2000 – This cult sci-fi road movie deals with ultra-violent sport in a futuristic society, with road race drivers scoring points by running down pedestrians! David Carradine (Kill Bill), the demonic national champion driver clad in black leather, and the thug-like Sylvester Stallone (Rocky), are arch-enemy road warriors who cause unimaginable carnage on the streets of America. (The hit 2008 remake, Death Race, was produced by Roger Corman and Tom Cruise and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson – Mortal Kombat). Death Sport – Following the wicked sci-fi satire of Death Race, Corman concocted another futuristic drive-in action picture, this time about gladiators on motorcycles in the year 3000. Rock-N-Roll High School director Alan Arkush recasts David Carradine as a rebel warrior alongside B-movie vixen and Playboy Playmate Claudia Jennings, and the resulting mix of barbarian and biker butchery is a must for exploitation junkies.
