Repressed Cinema returns with a rare 16mm print of this 1975 cult classic!

In the late 1970s, the United States collapsed, resulting in massive civil unrest and economic collapse. The government restructured into a totalitarian regime under martial law. To pacify the population, the government has organized the Transcontinental Death Race, where a group of drivers are driving across the country in their high-powered cars, infamous for lots of violence, gore, and innocent pedestrians struck for bonus points. Based on a short story by Ib Melchior, director Paul Bartel's vision is a mix of satire, horror, and science fiction. The film features stand out performances from David Carradine, Sylvester Stallone, Mary Waronov, and "Cobra Kai" Martin Kove. Do not miss this opportunity to see this black comedy classic on the big screen. Special 16mm trailer reel before the feature.

Underground Comics for sale in the lobby, as usual.
