How "Death Race 2000" hasn't made it onto HDTGM is beyond me. Set in a dystopian future, the most popular form of entertainment is the death race, a cross country race that also serves as government sanctioned population control. As the racers drive, they score points by killing pedestrians along the way. Each pair of racers have a specially modified car that fits their particular theme (two Nazis in a "buzzbomb" carmann ghia, a cowgirl/cowboy in a bull-shaped car with horns, etc). All the while, comically gory deaths ensue. In one scene, staff at a retirement home wheel their patients into the street for what Frankenstein (a part man part machine driver played by David Carradine) refers to a "euthanasia day." His hot headed rival, Machine Gun Joe Viturbo (played by Sly Stallone), makes it his mission to destroy him, and most of his own fans. The movie is produced by Roger Corman, who also produced 414 other horribly corny movies like "Big Bad Mama" and "Slumber Party Massacre." The full movie is currently available for free on YouTube. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie, even if not for the show.
This movie is insane from top to bottom and I think it would be great for the podcast to watch it .A fun fact about this movie is that it is first horror film series in history whose films were directed exclusively by women. IMDb Description: A high school student's slumber party turns terrifying as an escaped mental patient with a drill decides to crash the party. *you can also watch the full movie for free on YouTube*
Let me start by saying that this movie is insane. Beverly DeAngelo is released from jail and becomes the nanny for two precious children who's parents are dubbed "the worst ever." She then gets the idea that she could sell the kids to make a quick buck. Let's just say there's a dead monkey, an obsessive compulsive yuppy couple, and Beverly DeAngelo learns a lesson. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111525/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3igi6r2Go-0 Just wanted to add an apology: I posted this in the main section instead of posting here, and I apologize for not posting a recommendation in a spot that says, very boldly, BAD MOVIE RECOMMENDATIONS.
