The brutal biker is outclassed by the sophisticated savagery in this urban abattoir
A masterpiece of early 70's Euro rip-off madness. It's got Sue Lyon wearing too much greasy make-up and the always underwhelming Chris Mitchum...excited, I am. This is great nonsense of the highest order, if your taste in movies stretches to the more mondo end of the bracket, Jess Franco, bad Italian biker movies, Umberto Lenzi etc you're gonna dig this. Sleeper style futuristic art direction, gay looking hoodlums in shiny red helmets, and Sue Lyons killing hardbodied young men for no explicable reason, aside from the director wanting her to...Genius. This film also contains two superb faux adverts which are hysterical, one for an msg free blue drink, called Blue Drink the other extolling the virtues of masculine leopard spot sex pants. Two heavy handed references to Sue Lyon's previous role as Lolita, why????? because the director wanted to, good enough for me. Plot - some Italian producers saw Clockwork Orange and thought they could do the same, they couldn't...but it's bonza all the same. I picked it up at a market for a £1 and aside from 'Tuxedo Warrior' it is thus far my greatest find. The cover itself is as camp as fairy dust...if you ever are lucky enough to come in contact with this slice of mondo-trasho check it out.
