DEATH RACE 2000
1975, New World Pictures, 80 min, USA, Dir: Paul Bartel

In the year 2000, hit-and-run driving is no longer a felony - it's the national sport! In a dystopian future, economic collapse has pushed America into martial law; to keep the people pacified, the government has created the Transcontinental Road Race. Pro-wrestling-style drivers (David Carradine, Mary Woronov and a pre-ROCKY Sylvester Stallone among them) resort to any violence necessary to cross the finish line first, racking up bonus points for killing pedestrians. But resistance fighters hope to use the race to their own ends in Paul Bartel’s satirical cult favorite.


THE WITCH WHO CAME FROM THE SEA
1976, AGFA, 86 min, United States, Dir: Matt Cimber

Famed for his work on 1980s cult sensation “GLOW: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling,” director Matt Cimber tells the psychedelic horror tale of Molly (Millie Perkins), who is haunted by childhood trauma and abuse. With her reality distorted, Molly looks for answers by seducing and murdering men - but the blood she sheds gives her little comfort and instead drives her deeper into personal darkness.
