"You think every girl's the same?"
"No. Their names are different."
John Brahm, director of episodes of The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Outer Limits, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and Waterfront, delivers Hot Rods to Hell. The storyline for this movie is interesting and entertaining. The characters are solid but the end is a bit disappointing. The cast delivers better than average performances and includes Dana Andrews, Jeanne Crain, Mimsy Farmer, Jeffrey Byron, and Mickey Rooney Jr.
"You'd do better looking at the road."
"Thanks, buddy, but we've already seen it."
This movie was accidentally recorded off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) instead of the intended horror picture. My daughter (Kiyomi) and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie due to the great car chases, crashes, and games of chicken. This was far from a perfect grindhouse movie, but it was an entertaining classic grindhouse horror/car chase film. This is worth seeing once if you're a fan of the grindhouse genre.
"Fortunately, the spine wasn't severally damaged."
that poor dad and his back problems.
