Movie Notice: Hot Rods to Hell

Posted By on Sat, May 31, 2008 at 3:05 PM

On Monday night at 8, the Loft cinema will be showing Hot Rods to Hell, starring an aging but powerful Dana Andrews (Tobacco Road, Ox Bow Incident) as a family man whose bad back is emasculating him: He has to let his wife drive the car! Then, things get even worse when crazy hot-rodders nearly force Andrews and family off the road. Revenge would be sweet, but is he man enough to get it? This film is a classic of '60s b-movie/roadhouse cinema, the kind of thing that Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino can't quite capture in their high-budget homages. But the best part is the electric psych/blues band, featuring Mickey Rooney Jr. on guitar. I know trash cinema isn't everyone's bag, but this one is special, like getting hugged by a one-armed surfer girl on a California beach at the sunset of youth.
