Death Race Beyond Anarchy movie cars drivers Frankenstein Ford Mustang

Frankenstein

Hoping to secure his eighth consecutive death race win and remain ruler of The Sprawl, Frankenstein (Velislav Pavlov) returns in his spiked Ford Mustang.

The director Death Race: Beyond Anarchy, Don Michael Paul, wanted the personalities of the drivers to be memorable and unique, and to make sure that each car matched the characteristics of its operator. Needless to say, all the drivers are just as aggressive, flamboyant, and unhinged as their vehicular counterparts.

If you’re interested in learning how the filmmakers and crewmen modified these custom cars, the DVD/Blu-Ray release of Death Race: Beyond Anarchy includes a behind-the-scene featurette titled “On the Streets of Death Race: Beyond Anarchy.” It provides a glimpse into how the mechanics crew stripped the production models of their seats, dashboard, liners, and floorboards to   prepare the cars for extreme stunts.

Death Race: Beyond Anarchy arrives on Blu-Ray, DVD, digital download, and on-demand Tuesday, October 2.
