Saturday Night at the Movies 9/7/13!

Who cares what picture we see?

R.G. Armstrong probably would, if you asked politely. So this will be the pick:

I got taken to this movie at the drive-in by my parents when it was new - and I liked it as a wee lad. I saw it again on television a decade or so later, and again really enjoyed it. I haven't seen it since - but I have two different DVD editions - a standalone, and paired with another Peter Fonda car picture - Dirty Mary Crazy Larry. This movie mixes action and car stunts with suspense and some horror elements - and makes a rollicking cool flick. It's a solid cast, and they're directed by biker movie actor Jack Starrett a few years before played Galt and demanded they shave Rambo...dry...in First Blood.

Speaking of two editions - the poster came in two editions too. The one up top emphasized the horror side of things - but they did another version:

This one emphasizes the action. Both represent the movie fairly well, and both are cool.

In any case, the movie is in the video vault on those two DVDs, which means I should be able to have one spinning in the machine in moments - if you wanted to come hang out and watch it with me - even tonight!

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. This movie is so awesome, it deserves a lot more attention than it gets. I love it.

    For Texas Chainsaw Massacre fans, there are easter egg cameos by Paul Partain, the band Arkey Blue, and the chainsaw salesman from TCM2.

  2. Never seen it before. Only scene from it that I know very well, is the one where they burn the witch, which appears in "The 'Burbs", a movie I've seen more than twenty times in my life :)
