Overview

Death Race 2000

Finally, a version of Death Race 2000 that's worth adding into any DVD collection. Long available in separate cheap versions that offered little of interest to the film's cult fan base, this new edition sports an anamorphic 1.78:1 widescreen picture and a bevy of extras that provide fine detail into the low-budget 1975 production that continues to entertain and delight fans to this day. Bonus materials include a ten-minute making-of as well as a full-length audio commentary with producer Roger Corman and actress Mary Woronov that are filled with fun facts and insight into the stripped-down production. The original theatrical trailer is also included in this release from Buena Vista Home Entertainment, whose Disney ties make for a curious match to the brutally satirical picture, but who can complain after the time put into this beefed-up edition? Far superior in transfer quality from previous releases, this is the disc to get for anyone who craves a little Frankenstein and Machine Gun Joe Viterbo action every once in a while.

Ever hear someone say while driving their car, that the old lady crossing the street up ahead is atleast 500 points and then someone begs to differ saying she is only worth 200. Well behold, its origin. The movie was made in the 70's, so the 70's style can be felt. It is an overall amusing flick. You should at the very least be able to say you have seen this movie.
