Speedtrap: Tagline: "Crazy for Speed and Driving for Revenge!" - Action packed car crash porn for fans of Gone in 60 Seconds, Cannonball, The Junkman, etc. Joe Don Baker stars as a private dick called in to help local cops catch an unstoppable car thief nicknamed "The Road Runner". He also butts heads with a local mafia crime boss (Robert Loggia). The film is filled with car chases, crashes and insane stunts. There's even one stunt (see below) that used the 'Bullet Time' effect 22 years before The Matrix! Go figure. Plus the supporting cast is filled with genre favorites like Roberta Collins, Richard Jaeckel and Timothy Carey. Perfect 70's Drive-In style entertainment.
Car Crash: Tagline: "Not Even the Mob Can Stop Them..." - The bare bones plot of Car Crash is just an excuse for Antonio Margheriti to fill 90+ minutes of screen time with car stunts, car crashes, cars vs trucks, cars jumping trains (see below), cars vs helicopters, etc. You get some good-natured buddy stuff between Joey Travolta and Italian beef Vittorio Mezzogiorno as two lovable gear-crunching demolition derby drivers. On their way to a big payday demo derby they get mixed up with the mob, a sexy girl and a kooky millionaire (John Steiner). Put your brain on cruise control and enjoy the 80's fashions, music and cheesy (Italian-style) action.
