“Pit Stop” is an amazing film about street punks racing against each other. Richard Davalos and Sid Haig race against each other, as Jack Hill shot real car crashes on a real figure-8 track. In real life, Sid Haig didn’t know how to drive a car. That being said, you couldn’t tell it onscreen. But, I don’t think that would’ve even mattered.

Ellen Burstyn also shows up under a different credit. But, it’s not like she gets a ton to do here. This is a movie that belongs to racing action, minus the melodramatic trappings of recent Fast movies. What I appreciated was the Blu gives Roger Corman a chance to talk about the movie. Somehow, I’d never heard his thoughts before.

The Blu-Ray comes with a new 1080p transfer and PCM 1.0 mono track. There is a new audio commentary, featurettes and original trailer. I haven’t seen the Code Red release to compare it, but I’d have a hard time imaging it beats this Arrow USA release. Hopefully, Arrow gets to tackle every other Jack Hill movie not on Blu-Ray. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.

Release Date: OUT NOW!
