FAST COMPANY (fireball) (1978 CANADA) D/W: DAVID CRONENBERG W/P: COURTNEY SMITH W: PHIL SAVATH/ALAN TREEN P: MICHAEL LEBOWITZ/PETER O`BRIAN
Made between RABID and THE BROOD, here`s a Cronenberg drag-racing flick. William Smith is the ageing dragster champion who`s pit crew and colleagues are sponsored by oil company Fast Co. John Saxon is at his bad guy best as the conniving company representative who doesn`t care about racing or the racers, causes trouble and even conspires murder. It`s not typical Cronenberg for the fans, but i really enjoyed this and it has a surprising revenge ending. With Don Francks and Nicholas Campbell. Might make a good double-bill with Jack Hill`s PIT STOP.
