Take the Insane Clown Posse and former ECW wrestler Ravenm (also of WCW, WWE, RoH, TNA…) and put them in an Asylum mockbuster of the upcoming Death Race remake directed by the guy who did the blood-soaked Cemetery Gates and the seriously wacko Demons at the Door and what do you get? From the looks of the trailer for Death Racers: one seriously gonzo splatterfest.
“In this grim vision of the future where brutality is a virtue and mercy will cost you your life, contestants participate in a cross-country death race where killing is how you win the game.”
Kind of depressing that The Asylum’s knock-off of the remake of Death Race 2000 seems to have more in common with the plot to Death Race 2000 than Paul WS Anderson’s upcoming remake.
Death Racers was meant to be released to DVD the same week Death Race hit big screens; that all got mucked up when Death Race had its release date bumped up a month. Death Racers blazes its bloody trail to DVD shelves on September 23rd.
The Asylum has made available the first artwork and a rather NSFW trailer for Roy Knyrim’s I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-Troma Death Racers. Make of it what you will. One thing I can say; I have a hard time believing Death Racers will suffer from the boring, nothing’s happening, problems that have plagued past Asylum releases.
And for those looking for an even heartier laugh, The Asylum has announced two more mockbusters coming this fall and I swear on a stack of bibles I’m not making these titles up: Sunday School Musical and The Day the Earth Stopped. They really need to get out of the mockbuster business and just start doing straight-up parodies.
