Critic Reviews for Hot Rods to Hell
A mixture of "Beach Blanket Bingo," "Last House on the Left," and "Leave it to Beaver"...
Consistently amusing in its unintentional campiness.
Audience Reviews for Hot Rods to Hell
This movie has a good cast, and some really intense and exciting scenes, especially towards the end. I think it could be better, though, the story could have been stronger, maybe if we knew more about the hot rodding teenagers? Overall, I enjoyed it, though, I liked Andrews.
2 stars (out of 5) for being such a bad film but 5 stars for the entertainment value. Bad acting, crazy dialogue. Like, wow.
I'm not the same guy.
A family in Boston suffers a horrific accident when the father is in a car crash and suffers major spinal and back injuries. He'll never be able to work as he knows it again. A friend of the family convinces him to buy a hotel in the west to make a living. On the way to the town and once they arrive they are plagued by young kids with hot rod cars trying to drive them off the road. The kids don't like change and they don't like the family. Can the family survive the crazed teenagers?
"You think every girl's the same?"
"No. Their names are different."
John Brahm, director of episodes of The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Outer Limits, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and Waterfront, delivers Hot Rods to Hell. The storyline for this movie is interesting and entertaining. The characters are solid but the end is a bit disappointing. The cast delivers better than average performances and includes Dana Andrews, Jeanne Crain, Mimsy Farmer, Jeffrey Byron, and Mickey Rooney Jr.
"You'd do better looking at the road."
"Thanks, buddy, but we've already seen it."
This movie was accidentally recorded off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) instead of the intended horror picture. My daughter (Kiyomi) and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie due to the great car chases, crashes, and games of chicken. This was far from a perfect grindhouse movie, but it was an entertaining classic grindhouse horror/car chase film. This is worth seeing once if you're a fan of the grindhouse genre.
"Fortunately, the spine wasn't severally damaged."
