The Legendary Racing Drama From The Director Of CRASH, THE FLY And SCANNERS – Now Fully Restored For The First Time Ever In America!
In between his horror hits RABID and THE BROOD, award-winning director David Cronenberg immersed himself in the gritty world of top-fuel dragsters to make what he considers to be one of the most important movies of his entire career. Genre icons William Smith (RED DAWN, MANIAC COP), John Saxon (ENTER THE DRAGON, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) and drive-in goddess Claudia Jennings (in her final role before her tragic death) star in this surprising story of a corporate-sponsored racing team and the explosive obsessions that speed them through lives of fast cars, fast cash and FAST COMPANY.
Due to a mysterious distribution snafu, FAST COMPANY was barely released in America and has remained virtually unseen anywhere in the world. Blue Underground is now proud to present this action-packed drama newly transferred in high-definition under the personal supervision of cinematographer Mark Irwin (VIDEODROME, THE DEAD ZONE), remastered in room-rattling 6.1 DTS-ES and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround EX, packed with nitro-burning Extras, including all-new featurettes and an exclusive audio commentary by David Cronenberg.
