Storyline

A soldier comes back from the war and goes undercover to avenge the death of his cop brother. His link to the murder is the fiancée of his brother, who wants vengeance too, and knows he was an infiltrated cop with a drug-dealing biker gang, the Hellcats, who are employed by the mob to move the drugs from Mexico to the USA. The two would-be avengers infiltrate the Hellcats, the girl is abducted, and now it's the retired soldier against all the bad guys. Written by Ken Oyler

THE HOLY GRAIL OF '60S B-BIKER MOVIES!!!
9 February 2003 | by (Northwest, USA) – See all my reviews

Hellcats is a campy classic from 1967 featuring Ross Hagen as an undercover narc who (with his murdered brother's fiancee) infiltrates a '60s hippie-biker gang to find out who killed him. So bad it's good!! The film really has a '60s feel to it, and it's worth it for you '60s afficionados to get your hands on the uninterrupted (i.e. not the Mystery Science Theater 3000) version.

The acting is bad, but the hippie/biker parties are classic. This does have an authenticity to it, as actual hippies are used, "cubes" and "Mary Jane" is frequently mentioned, and hot hippy chicks make it with the bikers in massive orgies (albeit PG rated ones). This film laid the groundwork for Easy Rider and the hundreds of similar films to follow. "Davy Jones and the Dolphins" make a brave attempt at a psychedelic soundtrack, though THIS Davy Jones sings out of tune. The rest of the soundtrack is some over the top cartoon drama music (i.e. Batman and Crazy Cat and Minute Mouse themes).

But the Hellcats show at the end they really are the good guys, which really makes it a satisfying ending. I give it a 10 as a classic B '60s film.
