As this thief is discovered in his attempt, he hides the tape inside a prototype car, but unfortunately there is someone else interested in this vehicle.

Dodge Daytona Turbo!
Great film that takes me back to the ’80s in a good way.
I agree with the positive reviews already posted and fondly remember “Black Moon Rising” projected on the giant screen at the Virgina Theater in Champaign, IL. The car chase scenes are tremendous and they don’t trash the Dodge Daytona Turbo. I was driving the same car at the time and it has always been my favorite vehicle.
Considering the participation of John Carpenter and Roger Corman it really is a “good little film” as everyone seem to call it. New World released several of these small gems in the ’80s. “The Philadelphia Experiment” and “Eddie and the Cruisers” come to mind. Small budgets, great stories and terrific acting in films that actually improve with age.
Any film with Tommy Lee Jones is worth a look and Linda Hamilton is always a looker. Check it out.
Entertaining action – plus!
