‘Death Race 2050’ Goes Full ‘Idiocracy’ in This Gory Exclusive Clip

Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 arrives on Blu-ray combo pack, DVD and Digital HD January 17, 2017, from Universal Pictures Home chntertainment.

A reboot of the cult classic Death Race 2000, the Universal 1440 Entertainment original production straps viewers into the driver’s seat of the ultimate auto showdown, a blood-splattered no-holds-barred virtual-reality show that gleefully pits hardened road warriors against each other — and their audience.

This re-remake is nothing like the Paul W.S. Anderson film, but more like Mike Judge’s Idiocracy, only featuring goofy characters, bizarre action and tons of CGI. This is definitely a new spin on the franchise…

Legendary filmmaking icon, Roger Corman, is back with his most outrageous film yet in this sensational, action-packed and darkly humorous reboot of the original Death Race 2000! It’s the year 2050 and America is controlled by an all-powerful corporate government ruled by The Chairman (Malcolm McDowell). The masses have been brainwashed with violent virtual-reality entertainment. The event of the year is the Death Race, in which a motley crew of violent drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for shamelessly running people over and driving each other off the road. The reigning champion and fan favorite, Frankenstein (Manu Bennett), who’s half-man half-machine, wants to take the crown, but his rebel spy co-pilot threatens his legacy.

Produced by Roger Corman, the king of cult classics, Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 stars Manu Bennett (The Hobbit) as Frankenstein and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) as the Chairman. The cast also features Burt Grinstead (“NCIS”), Marci Miller (Viper), Folake Olowofoyeku (The Beaver), Anessa Ramsey (Footloose), Yancy Butler (Hard Target) and Charlie Farrell (Cantar).

The film is directed by G.J. Echternkamp from a script by Matt Yamashita (Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda) and G.J. Echternkamp, and produced by Roger Corman (Death Race 2000) and Luis Llosa (Anaconda).

Bonus features reveal how filmmakers transformed the deadliest competition on wheels into a hair-raising, savagely funny game of life or death.

      It is awful, I gave up after about 20 min.

    I had thought this was supposed to be the fourth in the Stathom series. Kinda glad to see it is much more like the original movie. The “wink, wink, nudge, nudge” comedy seems to be trying too hard. But, I will check this out as soon as I can.

  • The commentator’s coat is my new everything. Plus, “Mood Whiz”?

    It’s so awful until it’s amusing, so many parody of today’s direction of America…scary yet amusing.

    The problem is this show may end up predicting the future…..if we are not careful.
