Race with the Devil doesn't quite measure up to Mad Max or even Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry as a drama, but with its thrills, mystery and legitimate scares, this film is an unquestionable good time.

Full Review… | June 22, 2013

Joins the likes of "Rosemary's Baby" and "Duel" as a nightmare that simply will not end.

It was just goofy fun--probably the reason it caught on as a cult classic favorite.

Audience Reviews for Race with the Devil

The ridiculousness of this movie made it great.

Curtis Lilly

Super Reviewer


Not quite the insane road rage flick I was expecting to see, but still entertaining.

Tim Salmons

This movie just feels inconsequential. It is mentally tiring to try and come up with anything to say about this movie other than there's a few cool shots, it's a very standard 'went down the wrong road story', and I think it has got some tense moments, but overall it's nothing impressive. Some dirtbikes, devil-worshippers, dog-killers, and dirty cops collide in a big "car fight" at the conclusion, and several other times during the movie. So there's cool stuff, but it just doesn't come together to make a significant piece.
