Ah, it's always great to discover a forgotten gem like this for the first time. Staring Peter Fonda and Warren Oates, the story involves them and their wives going on a cross-country vacation in their new RV. They decide to spend their first night parked in a secluded section of woods and just before going to bed, they witness a brutal, satanic ritual off in the distance. When they are spotted, the chase of their lives begins. Simply put, Race with the Devil was an entertaining flick. The ritual was suitable creepy (I loved the shot of the fire being started, as well as the flaming tree later on) and the chase scenes were tense, exciting, and action-packed (great stunt work). The "can't-trust-anyone" theme really helped to develop the foreboding atmosphere, all leading up to a chilling finale. I recommend checking the movie out before the remake hits screens in 2008 you won't regret it! By the way, Race with the Devil was clearly an influence on From Dusk Till Dawn.
