Trivia

Original director Nicholas Niciphor, a.k.a. Henry Suso, was a USC film student who had made some excellent shorts. He had been in an agent's office pitching himself in order to get representation, when the agent called Roger Corman. As it turns out, Corman and others at New World had seen and enjoyed Niciphor's shorts and Niciphor subsequently got hired to do a re-write for and direct "Deathsport". See more »

This is fun for cheapie!!!!
11 October 2002 | by (Alaska, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the ultimate "get your freinds togeter and yell at movie"!! Agreed the effects are cheap, the acting bad, and the "jet" motorcycles. But it's endering in it's ineptness, defiately worth a rental.
