Trivia

The scene where the first motorcyclist is seen crashing off the bridge was shot on the M3 motorway, then under construction. The bridge and some roadway leading up to it were the only bits completed in 1972; the motorway itself was finished in 1974. See more »

Goofs

The amount of times the same vehicles were used, even after being involved in accidents. Example: when the bikers are trying to kill themselves, one rides through the side of a furniture van. Later on, the riders go past traffic and the same van is there undamaged. See more »

The coolest movie I have ever seen--no exaggeration!
22 December 2004 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I really don't want to say this is my favorite movie, but it sure is tempting. I know full well how cheesy and ridiculous it is... but it's also the most rockin', stylish, all-out groovy flick I have ever seen!

I have no idea why this is classified as a horror movie. As far as I can tell, it's meant to be a comedy. A very, very black comedy. The movie's brilliance is that it takes extremely touchy subjects and turns them into lighthearted jokes. The basic message, as far as I can tell, is that there is nothing wrong with mass suicide, anarchism, or devil worship... in fact, it can even be fun! Now, can they really be SERIOUS about this? I think not. The entire movie is a joke, and a very funny one.

With scenes such as a a biker jumping to his death after telling a cop "I'll be right down!", a biker blasting out of his grave on his motorcycle, a biker coming back from the dead in the morgue and calmly walking out like he just woke up from a nap, etc., all accompanied by some seriously sweet rock music, this is about as cool as it gets. I defy anyone to come up with a more entertaining movie than this.
