Hell Drivers - Preview & competition
Preview by Jack Foley
HELL Drivers is a tremendous hard-boiled action thriller from Zulu director Cy Endfield, from his and John Kruse’s BAFTA nominated screenplay.
It features memorable performances from both Stanley Baker (Zulu) and Patrick McGoohan (The Prisoner) as rival drivers for a ruthless road-haulage company. An outstanding cast includes Herbert Lom (Spartacus), Peggy Cummins (Gun Crazy), William Hartnell (Doctor Who), Sid James (Carry On, Bless This House), Gordon Jackson (The Professionals) and Wilfrid Lawso (Pygmalion), with early appearances from Sean Connery (James Bond) and David McCallum (The Man from U.N.C.L.E, NCIS).
When ex-con Tom Yately signs up as a driver for Hawlett’s, he uncovers shady dealings between the manager and the viciously ambitious head driver – the drivers are paid per trip, with a bonus system encouraging them to drive at reckless speeds and take dangerous risks.
The stakes are raised when a fatal accident claims the life of Tom’s only workplace ally, and he vows to take revenge.
A gritty classic, Hell Drivers is featured here in a stunning new High Definition transfer from the original film elements, in its original aspect ratio. The film is released on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday, March 20, 2017.
