America’s Original Crash Test Dummies
An email recently arrived from our favorite Boston scribe, Darren Garnick, who is the also a producer of an about-to-be-released movie “Hell Drivers: America’s Original Crash Test Dummies”. [www.helldriversmovie.com].
Darren usually runneth-over with info, and his latest didn’t disappoint.
Hell Drivers is about guys who drive halfway across the country for the chance to drive a flaming garbage truck off a dirt ramp into a mound of junk cars. About motorcycle jumpers who have bounced back from brain-injuring crashes to soar fearlessly above county fair crowds. Most have no health insurance, no life insurance and don’t get Hannah Montana money to go on tour.
Whether you work in a cubicle or an auto body shop, you’ll be inspired by guys who get off their butts and follow their dreams — even when all logic tells them to give it up for something “safe.”
Hell Drivers premieres on June 13 at the New Jersey International Film Festival (details here: http://helldriversmovie.wordpress.com/2008/05/27/world-premiere/ ) and then moves on to screenings in Philadelphia (late June), the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Iowa (early August) and Orlando (late August). Final scheduling details are being worked out on those other locations and will be updated soon at www.helldriversmovie.com. Rest assured, we are also working on some New England screenings over the next few months.

At last, a movie for the whole family!
Darren adds this note for the athletically-inclined:
P.S. Anyone interested in sprinting up the Rocky steps after our Philadelphia screening is welcome to join me and director Peter Koziell!
A movie about guys who drive fast, jump over cars and crash into stuff–maybe with flames?!?!
A chick flick, it’s not.
