Horror filmmaker Eric Red (The Hitcher) killed a couple of people in a West Los Angeles demolition-derby car wreck accident in May 2000. I don’t know what the moral is, but this is one of the weird- est Hollywood-filmmaker-dodges-the-legal-consequences stories I’ve ever read. Written (and very thoroughly reported) by Paul Cullum, it’s in this week’s L.A. Weekly and is called “Death Race 2000.”
