Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Race with the Devil doesn't quite measure up to Mad Max or even Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry as a drama, but with its thrills, mystery and legitimate scares, this film is an unquestionable good time."
‑ J.C. Mašek III, PopMatters
"Pretty bad Satanist thriller"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Joins the likes of "Rosemary's Baby" and "Duel" as a nightmare that simply will not end."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It was just goofy fun--probably the reason it caught on as a cult classic favorite."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
