Death Race 2. In the not too distant future, the United States economy is in decline and violent crime is spiralling out of control. In an attempt to regain power over the growing criminal population, a vast network of for-profit, private prisons has opened up. But rather than solving society’s problems they have created a lawless subculture run by gangs, killers and sociopaths.
On his arrival at Terminal Island Prison, convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas (Goss) finds himself thrown into the spotlight as a ruthlessly ambitious television personality, September Jones (Lauren Cohen; Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj, Supernatural), launches the ultimate reality show, Death Race, with him as her star driver. The brutal prison yard demolition derby pits the already violent and uncontrollable prisoners against each other in heavily reinforced and seriously dangerous armed vehicles. The prize is freedom; but will anyone survive to enjoy it?!
With the stakes so high the prisoners will do anything they can to win, and as a series of death-defying races take their toll on Lucas, his transformation into notorious Death Race driver, Frankenstein, begins. As the brutality of the race increases, Lucas is left so horribly disfigured by the violence he begins to wear a terrifying iron mask to hide his scars and a legend is born.
