Savages from Hell (1968)

* (out of 4)

If you're looking for high art then this here certainly isn't that. A small town in Florida comes under attack when a vicious motorcycle gang moves in. The leader of the gang catches his woman flirting with another man and this here sets off a chain of events full of violence and mayhem.

SAVAGES FROM HELL comes from director Joseph P. Mawra who made a number of exploitation pictures including the OLGA series. This film here is beyond awful and it really deserves a BOMB rating but what makes the picture somewhat entertaining is how bad it actually is. This is a film that's thankfully "so bad it's good" or at least entertaining. The film appears to have had a budget less than a thousand bucks as the technical quality of this picture is ultra cheap even for a biker flick from the drive-in era.

As I said, there's really nothing good to be found here. The editing and direction are pretty darn awful but I guess the director was just trying to get anything on the screen. The "savages from hell" are far from that. This here is basically a cross between THE WILD ONE and a number of other exploitation pictures of the era but it doesn't do anything right. Even worse is the fact that the "savages from hell" are rather tame and nothing too shocking happens here.

Biker pictures from the drive-in era have a small cult following today and those fans will certainly want to check this out just to see how cheap and how bad it actually is.
