S19:E3 - Death Race 2020 No. 1 (1995)

Frankenstein Unchained

Nov 1, 2021

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée rev their engines for the first issue of Death Race 2020! A sequel to Roger Corman's 1975 schlockfest, Death Race follows the continuing adventures of President Frankenstein as he attempts to rid society of the hyperviolence we love so, so well. Turns out taking away our right to run down strangers in our cars for fun and profit offends basically every part of the soul of America, forcing the race underground. There, a colorful cast of loveable psychopaths do a great job of showcasing why all those moms in the 90s were trying to shut down the comic book industry in the first place. Will Frankenstein hold strong to his pacifist principles, or give into his barely-repressed bloodlust? Well, he is an American president, so maybe adjust your expectations accordingly.
