power slide
13 June 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

It's strange that Steve Lustgarten, the director, his flick Power Slide isn't available on IMDb. So I had to do it this way. Sure, Power Slide is out on VHS but Belgium used to have a label called EmporiumMovies that were known to bring out hard to get flicks on DVD as a VHS rip. That's easy to spot because you can see the typical VHS faults.

As soon as they came out whit their label the sooner they vanished from earth and no those DVD's are only to find by collectors at flea markets. Was it worth the search? Yes and no. Yes, because there's was action going on and no because it didn't deliver anything new and looked like those old exploitation flicks.

The story itself was rather simple. When Kyle Lockwood returns after years to his home town he soon learns that the local mob has the town in hands like a vice grip. When he learns that one of his friends vanished he's sure he's being killed, but cops are corrupt too so it's up to Kyle to do some research.

It do has a few shoot outs but nothing is shown on-camera. It's a bit tame on the red stuff but somehow I kept watching due the story itself. Only for the buffs of old school drive-in flicks with old school cars from the seventies.
