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:
Crew or equipment visible: Crew visible when the gang first gets to the Satanic temple. The leader of the gang sees a Satanic cross and starts his monologue as he's heading toward it with the group. An individual is clearly seen in the high grass to the right of the screen.See more »

Bikers, satanists, werewolves, a little trippy, hey it's 1971!, 17 June 2005
Author: FieCrier from Upstate New York

A biker gang, The Devil's Advocates, is driving desert roads, perhaps a little lost. At a resting spot, some hooded monks serve them wine and bread, and they pass out. The monks have some sort of satanic ritual with the girlfriend of the gang's leader, who they call the bride of Satan. She winds up dancing on a table nude, when the bikers come to, grabbing her, and beating up the monks.

They hit the road again, but something's wrong. Whenever they stop, some of their members die, apparently killed by wild beasts.

At one point, the movie almost seems like a parody of a classic Universal monster movie, when a wolfman is riding on a motorcycle (!) being chased by bikers on their motorcycles who are wielding torches. What, no pitchforks?

I saw this on an old videotape, full-frame. If it was shot in widescreen, I'm sure it looks better that way, what with the desert locations. Still, the visuals are pretty nice at times, as when the bikers disappear in a cloud of smoke and the camera quickly pulls back from a truck. There's also a neat old gas station, with old-fashioned glass-topped pumps that actually need to be *pumped* with a lever.

The instrumental guitar songs on the soundtrack are enjoyable. A real fuzzed-out rock sound.

To the extent that it's not all that good, hey at least it's not that long either. The ending is weird, but maybe it's supposed to be a little trippy, man!
