DAMNATION ALLEY is a guilty pleasure. I love the crappy FX work at the beginning with the giant scorpions menacing the hero on the motor cycle.
As a kid I thought that was awesome.
And what's with the bunks in the barracks being located right next to the kerosine tanks or whatever they were that caused the installation to blow up in the beginning?
The scriptwriter needed to blow up the base and couldn't think of a remotely realistic way to do it?
My memories of the beginning of the movie still don't mess with the FMC version. Alas my efforts to find information on alternate versions of haven't been very fruitful. I'm starting to think my memories are either faulty or I dreamed up a entirely better intro.
Does anyone know if there was an extended version of this that played slightly differently?
