Road Games (Richard Franklin, 1981)

ONE GAME KILLS TIME – THE OTHER KILLS PEOPLE!

AV_Inferno_DVD_.inddStacey Keach is Pat Quid, an eccentric trucker who plays games to keep his sanity on long hauls through the desolate Outback.  With his pet dingo keeping him company, Quid creates imaginary lives for the people he sees on the road – families, hitchhikers, cyclists.  A mysterious green van picking up young female hitchhikers arouses the trucker’s suspicions, leading Quid to the conclusion that its driver may be a maniac killer butchering women across Australia.  A free-spirited hitchhiker (Jamie Lee Curtis) joins Quid in his game of detective, but when the killer raises their stakes, the game becomes personal and fun turns to fear.

Director Richard Franklin packs plenty of wry humor and Hitchcockian suspense into this psychological shocker that was nominated for four Australian Film Institute Awards and remains one of the most surprising thrillers of the 1980s.

“This movie f*****g kicks ass!” – Quentin Tarantino

Fast! Fierce! Fantastic! Nothing can stop … The Man From Hong Kong.  From maverick action film director Brian Trenchard-Smith comes this spy-flick spoof starring kung fu extraordinaire Jimmy Wang Yu!  Super cop Fang Sing Leng is an ass-kicking, bed-hopping Hong Kong James Bond with an axe to grind.  He arrives in Sydney with a mission: To bring down a mob boss (George Lazenby), woo some ladies and show the Aussies how they make a man in Hong Kong!  No wonder it smashed box office records around the globe!  Bursting with foot-to-the-floor, hi-octane car carnage and equally spectacular martial arts mayhem, The Man From Hong Kong (a.k.a The Dragon Files) is a pure, unadulterated 1970s thrill-ride from the first kick to the last crash.  This Aussie classic is finally available in North America, and not a moment too soon!
