Schlock-Wire: Shout Factory Unleashes A Double Feature Of DIRTY MARY, CRAZY LARRY And RACE WITH THE DEVIL In April

Two of the all-time great car-chase epics of the 1970’s are about to race back onto DVD thanks to the good folks at Shout! Factory.  Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry is being paired with Race With The Devil on a Peter Fonda-centric two-for-one disc that will be hitting the stores in April.  The first film is a great “antiheroes versus the cops” flick starring Peter Fonda, Susan George and Vic Morrow while the second pairs Fonda with Warren oates as it crossbreeds the car-chase flick with 1970’s-style Satanic horror to create a very distinctive hybrid.  Read on for all asphalt-scorching details…

April 12 – Dirty Mary Crazy Larry/Race With The Devil

Larry (Peter Fonda) is a former NASCAR racer looking to score some quick cash. Mary (Susan George) is a sexy groupie aching to take a fast ride. Together with mechanic Deke (Adam Roarke), they pull off a cold-blooded supermarket heist and hit the highway in Dirty Mary Crazy Larry. Now there is a maniacal lawman (Vic Morrow) on their trail, an entire police force in pursuit and hundreds of miles of roadblocks between their ’69 Charger and freedom. Buckle up for the action classic that blows the doors off all other car chase films as it speeds toward one of the most jaw-dropping finales in movie history. Directed by John Hough (The Legend Of Hell House, The Incubus).

For old friends Roger (Fonda) and Frank (Warren Oates) and their wives (Lara Parker, Loretta Swit), it was supposed to be “the best damn vacation they ever had.” But their RV road trip takes a deadly detour at a secluded campsite when they accidentally witness a satanic sacrifice in Race With The Devil. Now horror hits the highway as the couples are pursued by satanic cultists through some of the most intense car chases and into one of the greatest twist endings in drive-in movie history. Directed by Jack Starrett (The Losers, Cleopatra Jones), who was also an actor and played the memorable role of the vicious Deputy Galt in First Blood.
