Storyline

Hollywood action film star Rafe Stoker has sunk $130,000 of his own money into his own production, but can't find legitimate financing to complete the film. His mob-connected investor demands an exorbitant amount of collateral and a guarantee that Rafe hand over a commercially acceptable film in 4 weeks, then hires a gang of psycho bikers to sabotage the picture to ensure he collects Stoker's collateral. As if a cranky local cop and bad weather didn't slow production enough, Crazy Harvey decides to take Rafe out of the picture after Rafe shows him up once too often.

not bad biker flick
19 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Hollywood man in a censored version from mill creeks box set called suspense classics,i really wish i saw it uncensored because i hate movies that are chopped up,even for the language.anyway I'm a big fan of William Smith,since he played falconetti on the TV mini series rich man poor man a year before Hollywood man.well Mr Smith is making this biker flick but his studio boss wont front him the money to finish it,so he turns to a mobster for the money to finish it.but the mobsters use his house and property as collateral.and some psycho biker and his pals keep messing up his shoot so he has to go over budget.cult movie queen Mary Woronov plays Mr Smiths girlfriend and b movie Roger Corman regular:Don Stroud as his stuntman.there's plenty of action and violence even in this censored version.but i would'nt call this one of William Smiths best.but ill give it 6 out of 10.hopefully someone will release an uncut version.
