"As the cars roar into Pennsylvania, the cradle of liberty, it seems apparent that our citizens are staying off the streets, which may make scoring particularly difficult, even with this year's rule changes. To recap those revisions: women are still worth 10 points more than men in all age brackets, but teenagers now rack up 40 points, and toddlers under 12 now rate a big 70 points. The big score:... read more

This movie is in the category of being so bad that it's great. It was made in 1975 and stars a young David Carradine. The setting is a dystopian future society where the American fascination for cars gets taken to a ridiculous extreme. We also see Charlton Heston and Sylvester Stallone. (I was going to say when they were young and in-experienced but did they age any better? HaHa.

Made in 1975, Paul Bartel's vision of a dystopia America (or what has become of it) in 2000 is not off the mark. In fact, this is one of the many films which showed - or shows - America's obsession with forms of entertainment that are unorthodox and unusual, usually violent. True, America still doesn't have floating cities and people who are brave enough to compete in "death races", pretty much ev... read more

In the not-so-distant future lies a new national sport - the Death Race, a nationwide road rally in which the winner is not determined by who finishes first, but by who scores the most points along the way by running over hapless pedestrians.

Death Race 2000

“If Rollerball is the intellectual vision of “blood sport as opiate for the masses,” then Death Race 2000 is the loopy grindhouse inversion of it. Not directed by Roger Corman but shepherded by him, Death Race 2000 is a vision of American life at its most nihilistic. Whatever political framework we once had has long since fallen away, given rise to a Mr. President that presides from overseas, and provided an outlet for the collective sense of anger in a yearly drag race that encourages random acts of violence.   Not just encourages but rewards them with a system that places various values on human life. Eventually the curtain drops, and the death race is revealed as an elaborate political machinery with its poster boy driver a blank vessel that’s been inhabited by various performer” read more

RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (51 movies items)

"It’s a miracle that society didn’t disintegrate instantly upon the release of producer Roger Corman and director Paul Bartel’s cheapozoid, gearhead cult classic. In the future (see title), the national pastime is a car race where the drivers are given extra points for all the innocent people they kill. (Folks in wheelchairs = 100 points.) David Carradine plays the longtime champion Frankenstein, while a pre-Rocky Sylvester Stallone is his psychotic runner-up. The All-American imagery, coex"

The future kind of sucks. (381 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: America is in ruins, and things couldn't be worse. However, there is gladiator styled car races, in which the goal is to run over, as many people as humanely possible. Year it takes place: 2000"

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" "In the year 2000, hit and run driving is no longer a felony, it's the national sport!" Though it came out in the same year as that other cult dystopian bloodsport flick, Rollerball, Death Race 200 is generally considered the better film; however, it was lambasted by critics on its release as needlessly violent and speckled with gratuitous nudity. But what more do you really need from a cult film than blood, sex, and Roger Corman? The film's impact has been lasting; this is the ultimate ultra-"
