Race With The Devil (1975)

Fear 0/5
Gore 0/5
Entertainment 2/5
Creepiness 1/5
PG Rating 5/5

Uninspired 70's flick that cashed in on just about everything the 70's had to offer: dirtbikes, RVs, butterfly collars, car chases, kickin' ass, paranoia and, of course, Satanic cults.

Two manly dudes and their submissive, pansy-ass wives take off on their dream vacation which consists of driving an RV from Texas to do some skiing. They camp out one night and witness a Satanic cult murder (sacrifice) a young and very naked (presumably) virgin around their raging fire. Oddly, the boobs and stuff are all blurred out, but this wasn't on network TV or anything...oh yeah, PG.

The folks hightail it outta there and are chased across Texas by the cult members. There's zero blood, zero scares and a whole lotta car chasin' and motorcycle ridin'. And the two guys are tough as nails while the woman (literally) make dinner in the kitchen of the RV and refuse to drive (that's men's work). Weird.

If you're looking for a kick ass Satan movie - this isn't it. If you're looking for a horror movie - this isn't it. If you're looking for Peter Fonda looking a LOT like Jarvis Cocker - ok, you found it.

I've placed two of the same trailers below. If you start one just after the other, it's really groovy. Just like the 70's.
