"Death Race 2000" (1975) and "The Witch Who Came From the Sea" (1976) at Gary's

     Hey everyone I'll be showing 2 70's drive-in classics written by Robert Thom.

     First is "Death Race 2000" directed by Paul Bartel and starring David Carridine and Sylvester Stallone.  In the fascist America of the year 2000 the most popular TV program is Death Race!   Five drivers enter this transcontinental race and they gain points for each person they hit and kill along the way.  David Carridine is Frankenstein the bionic racer with a monster car with fangs.  His chief opponent is Sylvester Stalone as Machine Gun Joe Viterbo, who looks like he just stepped out of a 30's gangster picture.

     "The Witch Who Came From the Sea" stars Millie Perkins and Lonny Chapman.  Perkins is Molly a deeply disturbed young woman who dates several men and kills them in shocking and graphic fashion.  This film raises above most exploitation movies due to the great performances and literate scripting.

 

     Feel free to bring a dring or a snack to share.  We'll order some pizzas between the films.  Hope to see you there!

    Hey guys, sorry to have to miss this one. My refrigerator died, and appliance shopping took longer than I expected!

    Unfortunately I am going to be otherwise engaged now... Although I would have loved to be there... I'm rather shy and I am using this to overcome

    It looks like it should take about 20 min to get there, so I shouldn't be too late. Thanks.
