Death Race 2000

death_race_2000_poster_02Death Race 2000 is one of those films that still holds up almost 35 years later. It was silly and wondrously preposterous in 1975 and still is today. As a child, this NerdBastard couldn’t get enough Death Race 2000 when it came on television on Saturday afternoons, minus the for television edited bits of nudity and adult stuff. Much later in life, watching the uncut version that starred David Carradine as Frankenstein and Sylvester Stallone as Machine Gun Joe, the movie still had that otherworldly quality of trashy cinema that has captivated this lifelong nerd. The 2008 remake set in a prison was fun, but didn’t even come close to the originals impact. Those that followed were best soon forgotten.
