The Cycle Savages was perhaps one of the worst of the biker flicks I've yet seen
26 June 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Oh, boy! This was quite an awful motorcycle gang flick I just watched on YouTube. It was also the second that featured a performance by the recently deceased Casey Kasem-of which The Glory Stompers was the first-and he was also a co-executive producer here with Mike Curb. They previously were associate producers on TGS. Casey played the pimp brother of Bruce Dern's Keeg-a cycle gang leader capable of great anger. It was a hoot seeing Kasem on the phone while entertaining some bikini-clad ladies at the pool! Unfortunately, that was his only appearance. The rest of the movie has sketch artist Chris Robinson being harassed by Dern and his gang until Robinson gets wounded and taken care of by Melody "Wrangler Jane" Patterson-who is one of Dern's female workers. The main thrust of the plot concerns Dern's attempts to make sure Robinson never draws pictures of them again-so he won't show them to the cops-by making sure his hands are crippled. But, really, there's just senseless brutality most of the time, or at the very least, some babbling dialogue about doing such. Oh, yes, there's also a couple of interesting female players playing types like Maray Ayres playing the tough woman who loves Dern despite his treatment of her and Karen Ciral as a big, brassy blonde who gets gang raped by the gang. (Dig the drilling noise that plays during that scene!) Ms. Patterson herself does have a nice nude scene whether posing for Chris or sleeping with him. Other than those scenes, I felt The Cycle Savages was a waste of time for me. Good thing Dern would go on to better things...
