Underrated horror actioner!
21 November 2000 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

You don't hear too much about Race With The Devil, too bad because this is a great film. Now "classic film" great, but great as in extremely entertaining and fun.

Peter Fonda and Warren Oates (excellent jobs) are best pals who take their wives on a vacation in their massive motorhome. They stumble upon a devil-worship session in a remote area they parked in, and witness a human sacrafice. From then on in, the devil worshippers/witches chase down the two couples to kill them.

As the couples go on the run, it becomes more apparent that they are in the middle of what seems to be a massive conspiracy where everyone seemingly has a connection to the devil worshippers. Fonda's wife has some good creepy scenes especially as she realizes there's definitely something not right with the people they encounter.

If all that weren't enough, the film explodes into a series of fantastic car chases and crashes as the devil worshippers try to stop the couples with vehicular muscle. Among the chase highlights are a head-on collision, a pickup flying off the road into the river, and one car forced off the road that seemingly does a hundred flips.

The ending is a surprise, and only when you see it for the first tme do you realize it was probably inevitable. All in all an excellent fun flick!
