Storyline

A biker gang visits a monastery where they encounter black-robed monks engaged in worshipping Satan. When the monks try to persuade one of the female bikers, Helen, to become a satanic sacrifice the bikers smash up the monastery and leave. The monks have the last laugh, though, as Helen, as a result of the satanic rituals, is now possessed and at night changes into a werewolf, with dire results for the biker gang.

Trivia

MUTCD (Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices) 1971: Most of the roads traveled by the bikers in the film still have the pre-1971 MUTCD standards (white center lines). However, you will see the odd road that has been repainted in the yellow center line scheme and looks very fresh and half complete. The film was made when the MUTCD 1971 standards had just been released with most painting done between 1972 and 1974. See more »

Goofs

Annoyingly devoid of werewolves on any type of wheels
19 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have wanted to see this movie for YEARS, considering it has one of the greatest titles ever. What I was hoping for was bikers riding along in full wolfman makeup, like the poster suggests. What I got was hippies galavanting across a desert and two(I think its two, it might be just one) members of the crew change into wolf form within the last 2-3 minutes of the movie. I can't say that I think it's art, unless you can watch 'Manos, the Hands of Fate" and think that's art...attempted art, I suppose. To be clear, this movie is NOT as bad as Manos, as very few movies ever made are awful to that degree. Still, the title made me think I would enjoy this movie enthusiastically as it implies the kind of shlocky camp I find amusing and I came away incredibly disappointed...and bored.
