notorious ending, pure sleazefest, 22 March 2012
Author: trashgang from Midian

You know, those exploitation and drive-in flicks from the early seventies. Well, this is sure one that fits on top. As so many bikers are involved but this goes one step further. It contains a lot of nudity and a lot of sex scenes.

There isn't that much to tell about this flick, it was the first flick by Carl Monson here stated as Carlos Monsoya and it really has some bad filming. Shaky camera's not intended and wrong use of temperature. All the actors in it did appear only once in the film industry except Dennis Troy who went further to appear a few times in M.A.S.H. The way this flick was filmed especially the first sex scene was I guess done under the use of LSD, it's filmed with a kaleidoscopic effect and the voices are overdubbed. Once the two bikers go for a rape in a house you will have a sex scene that will take forever with some psychedelic music over it. So story wise there is nothing to tell, it's all about the nudity here in this flick. The two bikers are walking around naked a few times and yes you do see their balls but it never becomes pornographic. The editing is something weird to with flashbacks and flash forwards of raping girls. Weird weird weird. It's available on a DVD somewhere but I've got the very obscure Dutch VHS in perfect condition on the VML label. It's not for everybody but people who dig exploitation and sleaze than I would recommend it. And if I say Harry Novak was involved then you know what you will get.

But the most important reason to see it is the end, talking about a big joke...
