Arrow Video has announced the latest addition to its roster of Jack Hill movies with the stock car racing melodrama, Pit Stop. Following the release of blaxploitation classic Foxy Brown and the truly one-of-a-kind Spider Baby, Pit Stop has been treated to an all-new restoration (overseen by technical supervisor James White, previously responsible for Arrow Video’s acclaimed Blu-rays of Zombie Flesh Eaters, Time Bandits, and The Fury) that hopes to bring fresh interest to one of Hill’s lesser-known but arguably greatest works.
Complementing this Blu-ray edition are a host of all-new extras, including an audio commentary with Hill, interviews with Hill, Haig and producer Roger Corman, and a demonstration of the extensive restoration work by James White. The accompanying collector’s booklet includes new essays by US critic Glenn Kenny and the musicologist Gray Newell, who relates the history of forgotten Seattle psych band The Daily Flash and their soundtrack to Pit Stop.
