Death Race 2000 DVD (Roger Corman Cult Classics) (NTSC Region 1)

Death Race 2000 DVD (Roger Corman Cult Classics) (NTSC Region 1)
More delightfully sick humor from Bartel (EATING RAOUL). In a boorish future, the government sponsors a popular, but bloody, cross-country race in which points are scored by mowing down pedestrians--with bonus points for the elderly! Five teams, each comprised of a male and female, compete using cars equipped with deadly weapons. Frankenstein,the mysterious returning champion, has become America's hero, but this time he has a passenger from the underground resistance. A legendary cult film.
