Hilariously Bad Cheese
31 July 2005 | by (North Hollyweird) – See all my reviews

I've seen most of the films in the classic "biker film" genre, lasting from about 1966 to 1974. And this, my friends, is probably the most over-the-top crazy one ever put forward.

Badfilm legend David L. Hewitt, director of such trash as THE WIZARD OF MARS, THE GIRLS FROM THUNDER STRIP, and THE MIGHTY GORGA pulls out all the stops on this one, combining Neo-Nazi bikers, hippies, Jesus, and B-movie fave Anthony (nee Fred) Eisley. Hilarious! Goofy! Ridiculous!

Eisley's girlfriend is killed by a cycle-riding gang of neo-Nazis during a bank robbery. He vows to bring them down by infiltrating the gang as one of their fellow Nazis, biding his time until he can take them out.

My favorite bit is when Eisley goes undercover to apply to join the Nazi bikers, he goes to their headquarters, which seems to be a low budget Nazified Playboy Mansion! Bikini Madchens with phony German accents sashay around the pool as Nazis with phony German accents plot and scheme how they can gain control of the local Hippie culture (and improve their phony German accents).

Why the Hippies would allow themselves to come under the thrall of a bunch of violent thuggish Neo-Nazis , when they follow a guy dressed like Jesus, remains a mystery. I guess the Nazis believed that the Hippies were all unthinking sheep that were easily manipulated. I probably shouldn't give it too much thought. Analysis is bad idea for a movie like this.

Another great moment is when Eisley drops by the local psychedelic Head Shop to get "the skinny" from the owner, his very own Huggy Bear. LOONEY! I'm giving this movie a 5 for its preposterous entertainment value. As inept as it is, it's worth watching for the laugh value.

This was available on DVD for a period of time, but I think it's currently out of print. See if you can get your hands on a DVD copy of this demented celluloid wafer, BadFilm fans. Apparently, this film was made around 1968 or 1969, and sat on the shelf until 1981, when it was released on VHS home video! Wonder what people made of it back then. It's a shame this baby never saw time on drive-in screens; that would have been very appropriate.

UPDATE 2/24/2007: Spotted The Tormentors this week as a $1 DVD release in a cardboard sleeve at Fry's Electronics. Grab it before it vanishes again!
