Hordes Of Road Warriors Swarm Across Texas
2020 Texas Gladiators
Media Home Entertainment (1983)
I was recently reminded of this direct-to-video classic by Cinemassacre's Rental Reviews: Episode 100 in which James Rolfe discussed the crazy VHS tape cover art. It's an Italian science fiction film that imagines the year 2020 as a post-apocalyptic wasteland. One reviewer on IMDB described it as an attempted takeover of Texas by "rouge gangs of bikers, green mutants and one brown UPS delivery truck full of Neo Nazis". If you take out that bit about the green mutants, it actually wouldn't be too shocking of a headline here in the real 2020.
This is by no means a good movie, but it's so cheesy that it's enjoyable nonetheless. It's available to watch on YouTube. I strongly doubt that uploader, Pedro Cinemaxunga holds the copyright to the film, but it's been streaming on his channel for over two years, so I doubt it's going to be taken down any time soon (photo credit: Birth Movies Death).
