Paul Bartel POPS THE CLUTCH and brings the world the gory sci-fi satire DEATH RACE 2000 in 1975, a box office smash that remains a popular (and influential) exploitation film and a jewel in Roger Corman’s New World Pictures catalogue. On this episode of BARTEL ME SOMETHING GOOD we look at how the film came to be, the difficulties in filming (including David Carradine nearly being replaced by Lee Majors!), and the enduring legacy of the film. FRANKENSTEIN SCORES!
