Trivia

The film came about because Flesh Gordon (1974) had been confiscated in a police bust. Walter R. Cichy, associate producer of "Flesh Gordon", needed money in the meantime because of the delay of the film, so he enlisted its star Jason Williams to make an R-rated gritty action film. See more »

Hippy exploitation film provides unintentional laughs.
5 March 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A drug deal goes disastrously wrong for two long hairs when they run into cops at a roadblock. They kill the pigs and go on an orgy of kidnap and killing. Particular highlights include the theft of an ice cream truck complete with its camp, whining driver and a hippy hangout in the desert peopled with stoned hippy chicks and a pretentious hippy drug dealer. This is a film obviously inspired by the likes of 'Easy River' and 'Electra Glide in Blue', but it has a very amateur improvised feel to it, especially the dialogue which is a real hoot of late sixties cliches. The names of the cast and crew are the same which gives it all a 'lets do the movie right here' feeling. Howard Ziehm was one of the producers and Rick Baker did the gory gunshot make up.
