TNT 101: Outlaw Force (1988) w Special Guest Mark Richardson
Outlaw Force is a gem of a shit-kicker starring, produced, directed, and with original music by the inimitable DAVID HEAVENER. If you are not familiar with the man’s work this will be a real treat for you. The story is pretty formulaic… robbery, rape, murder, kidnapping and REVENGE!! But it’s all about the journey, not the destination as our hero plows through baddies like a denim tornado.
Billy Ray Dalton (played by DH) is a stuntman who sings both kinds of music, country and western. He’s a family man, real salt-of-the-earth, and he don’t take kindly to small town punks messing with his buddy who runs the local gas station. When a pair of dichotomous detectives (one of them is Frank Stallone) isn’t getting any leads on the crooks who make it personal with Billy Ray, he is forced to take matters into his own hands.
The dialogue and fights are solid gold in this movie. DH’s curly weird David Koresh hair is dope. His weird little daughter also makes you wonder to whom he must have owed a favor when he cast her …. There’s laughs galore, both intentional and unintentional in this straight to video classic.
SPECIAL PRESHOW FESTIVITIES will feature a Q&A with Mark Richardson, who played “Kooky” in the film. He has an impressive b-movie resume (Vice Academy 1-6, RollerGator, etc.) and has worked art department in countless honest to goodness really good movies. He will be our guest of honor for this very special screening.
