Death Racers

Death Racers
2008, USA
dir. Roy Knyrim
cast: Violent J, Shaggy 2 Dope, Scott Levy

In 2033, following civil unrest, one million US citizens are imprisoned in a sealed off city that functions as a prison for the whole country, known as the Red Zone. When The Reaper, the ruler of the Red Zone, gets his hands on some sarin gas, the local governor arranges a Death Race, to use criminals to kill off the Reaper.

An Asylum mock-buster designed to cash in on the remake of Death Race, while also stealing liberally from Escape From New York, this is pretty hard going. Insane Clown Posse play themselves, and the horror of two grown men in clown make up, condemned to act like backward 14 year olds for the rest of their lives in order to scrape a living soon overshadows the film, especially as it's basically a bunch of people driving round an industrial estate, committing killings in shitty CGI. To make it even more unwatchable, the soundtrack is largely composed of ICP tracks.If I told you the best thing about this film is one of the teams is called Vaginamite, that'll give you an idea how woeful it is. One of the worst films I've ever seen, and there's been some stiff competition for that accolade, I can tell you.
