Directed by Jack Starrett from a screenplay by Wes Bishop and Lee Frost, Race with the devil has the following synopsis:
It’s a hair-raising thrill as two men and their women run for their lives in a desperate attempt to escape a murderous group of Satanists. It begins when Roger and Frank witness a human sacrifice in which a young girl is killed. Suddenly, they are spotted and become the next targets. In the end, they are surrounded by the forces of evil and their only chance is one last run on the deadliest stretch of road in the land. With dangerous rattlesnakes, chasing pickup trucks and demonic witches at every bend in the road – Race with the devil is a roller coaster ride through hell.
The film stars Peter Fonda, Warren Oates, Loretta Swit, Lara Parker and RG Armstrong. With appearances from some people you might recognize The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.
