In Vietnam, aspiring actor Johnny Taylor is given a prize film script after saving the life of a Hollywood screenwriter. On his return, Johnny has trouble finding a studio that will let him play the lead until he saves producer Vance Patton's daughter Diane from a cycle-gang attack. The grateful father sends him to agent Mori Thompson, but Thompson wants the script for gang leader Deek Stacy. Deek and his agent feed Johnny LSD and drag him away to the dungeon during the producer's Halloween party. Melody Patterson (married at the time to James MacArthur) plays April Wilde.

Hard to take seriously, but somewhat entertaining
25 May 2009 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

Some Nazi bikers attack a girl (Lori Martin) on a beach. She's rescued by a local "war hero" (who looks way too clean-cut to have served in Vietnam). It turns out the girl's father is a producer, and the war hero just happens to have written a script. However, while the slimy father (who is married, but is rutting around with his Asian gardener's teenage daughter)is excited about the script, he's less happy about casting the young vet in the lead role, and he's REALLY unhappy about the romance burgeoning between they young couple and goes to great lengths to sabotage it.

As biker movies go this is pretty lame (perhaps partly because the gang seems to consist of at most half a dozen bikers). There is a cool scene where the vet and the daughter go to a swinging psychedelic costume party, which the bikers plot to disrupt by spiking the punch with LSD, hardly necessary though as this whole scene is already like a bad acid trip. The acting is uniformly terrible (you know you're in trouble when Melody "F Troop" Patterson gives one of the better performances). William Windom is OK as the father, but Murray McLeod is severely miscast as the "war hero", and the father's "Asian" concubine is played by a brunette caucasian girl(fortunately, she never talks). Lori Martin, who had played Gregory Peck's nubile and menaced teenage daughter in "Cape Fear" (a role later assayed by Juliette Lewis) nicely fills out a bikini and naturally looks even more "juicy" (as Robert Mitchum's character said of her in that film) at 20 than she did at 14. Unfortunately, her acting had not risen much above the level of godawful during that time.

There is a ridiculous conceit at the end involving a "dangerous" malfunctioning cable car that goes a whole twenty feet down to the beach from the producer's house. Between this, the pathetic motorcycle gang, and generally dire acting performances, it is REALLY hard to take this movie at all seriously, but it is somewhat entertaining nevertheless.
