Most Asylum movies are awful, but there is something compulsively watchable about them. Even for The Asylum though Death Racers was just a piece of rubbish. Visually, Death Racers was so slapdash that it not only gave me a headache but also made me dizzy. The colour scheme is nauseating, the editing is so choppy to the point that it's incoherent and the special effects look as though they only cost less than £5 to make. The soundtrack is annoyingly repetitive not just in the use of it but also the composition, and overall considering that I've never liked the style I just found it grating to listen to. Death Racers is appallingly written, I have not heard such atrocious dialogue in a long while, even for Steve the Hammer, while the story consists of predictable plotting, rushed pacing and very clumsily choreographed action sequences and you don't learn anything or care about the characters. The acting is also dire. Overall, a really awful film with no redeeming qualities even for The Asylum. 1/10 Bethany Cox
