"Sowing Wild Oates"
5 stars

Warren Oates and Peter Fonda are great in one of those great 1970's movies they just do not make anymore.

Oates and Fonda are the male halves of two couples taking an RV from San Antonio to Aspen. Along the way, they witness a Satanic ritual that quickly ends in a murder. The rest of the film consists of the two couples trying to make it to Amarillo as the coven pursues them and tries to kill them.

This is such an action packed film, and without CGI effects! The 1970's were wonderful for big car crash flicks, and this is a good one. The cast is good, but Jack Starrett's direction keeps both the suspense and the action on equal plains, and he accomplishes it. The last half hour of the film is an incredible set piece involving the RV, a tow truck, a pickup, and a delivery truck, making many of today's action films pale by comparison.

If you happen upon this somewhere, definitely take it out and have a look. You will be pleasantly surprised.
