"It's a fireball jungle we're living in"

The Cuban-born Joseph Prieto (aka Joseph Mawra) could be the single most under-rated person in the history of exploitation films. He not only directed SHANTY TRAMP and SAVAGES FROM HELL, he is also responsible for all four OLGA movies and the dykesploitation film CHAINED GIRLS.

This extraordinary, action-packed car-racing wonder is his very best.

The whole film revolves around a big race and the urges of the evil, snickering Cateye Meares (Alan Mixon) who'll do anything to win it. OK, pretty standard plot. What really makes the film is it's countless exploitation elements. Within 94 minutes you get a screeching car elimination, a cat fight, references to LSD and, in the best scene, a totally bent comedy-filler set in a bar with toilet-seat bar stools and urinal beer-taps!

A great, great film that stands beyond any other car-racing film ever made. See it to believe it.
