1970s cool: ‘Race with the Devil’

I’m thinking that the vehicular mayhem in “Mad Max: Fury Road” will top that in “Race with the Devil,” but I’m gonna just leave this here to encourage you to check out the latter film if you get a chance.

Directed by Jack Starrett, the 1975 thriller stars Peter Fonda, Warren Oates, Loretta Swit and the gorgeous Lara Parker as friends on an RV trip who stumble upon a Satanic ritual and human sacrifice in the middle of Texas.

Then the chase is on.

The leads are great and the wonderful character actor R.G. Armstrong plays the sheriff who won’t believe their story.

It’s a classic.
