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. Written by

This is quite a decent movie to spend some time with. It has action, suspense, craziness, violence and great bike stunts. Although this is supposedly a B movie, as a whole it looks professionally done. The cast is also very realistic in their portrayal of their characters. The result is we get a true-to-life kind of movie. In the show, Bill Smith plays an actor who's trying to make his own movie, with a low budget and him in the main role. And then he encounters the difficulties and obstacles in making such a production. Ray Girardin (whose comments you'd find here as well) plays a guy who gives Bill a hard time. I understand some of the elements of the show is a reflection of the real life situation in making this movie i.e. the problems they had when filming, just as Ray mentioned in his post. However the currently available version (a DVD was released in 2007) is an edited one, thus some elements of the show (I would presume some profanities and violence) have been taken out, from the looks of it. Otherwise, this is one to catch given the chance, and is reminiscent of a good 70's movie. If you like that era or am nostalgic to it, this is even an extra reason to watch.
