Race with the Devil Reviews
Race with the Devil was filmed on location in San Antonio, Castroville, Bandera and Leakey, Texas. Director Jack Starrett later claimed he hired actual Satanists to serve as cult-member extras, though he probably stated this for publicity purposes. Starrett directed the similar B-movie action film A Small Town in Texas the following year

The film was released theatrically in the United States by 20th Century Fox in June 1975. It earned North American rentals of $5.8 million.
The film was released on DVD by Anchor Bay Entertainment in 2005. This version is currently out of print.
On April 12, 2011 the film was released on DVD through Shout! Factory, packaged as a double feature with another Peter Fonda film, Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry. As of June 4, 2013, this Peter Fonda double feature set is available on Blu-ray.
A remake was planned in 2005, written by Drew McWeeny and Scott Swan, with Chris Moore (of Project Greenlight fame) to serve as director.Kevin Smith has said that Race With the Devil is a strong influence on his 2011 film Red State.
The film was also the basis for the Tamil language film Kazhugu (Eagle) which was released in 1981, and Drive Angry, starring Nicolas Cage, in 2011.
This was the second of three films Fonda and Oates would star in together (The Hired Hand was their first and 92 in the Shade was their third). The film was a hybrid of the horror, action and car chase genres. Wes Bishop scripted the film with Lee Frost. The two had previously teamed up in 1972 for the camp classic The Thing With Two Heads.
