Composer Jeff Simmons was a member of the L.A. freak band Easy Chair in the late sixties. His work on this movie came soon after the band broke up, and the band's drummer performed on the soundtrack. See more »
Okay, yeah, I'm kind of a sucker for the biker film genre and this certainly ranks nowhere the tops in the category (that would have to go to "Hell's Belles" or "Chrome and Hot Leather"). But there are plenty of others that are MUCH worse ("Satan's Sadists" leaps to mind, which really only has its title going for it). This one gets at least an extra half point for Jennifer Gan's lace-up leather pants alone, plus another half point for the fact that the guy who plays the protagonist, Mother, recently played George Bush (!) in the TV movie "The Day They Shot the President". The soundtrack is pretty cool too - nothing on, say, "Zabriskie Point", but for a Roger Corman production, not bad at all. A lot of the cinematography is pretty inventive too, for example the Vegas footage, with its still montages and big close-ups of all the (now mostly gone) bright neon signage. This is a pretty rare film on video, but if you can track it down and you're a fan of the genre (like me), it's definitely worth a rental.
