Ludicrous biker movie is worth the hard find.
6 February 1999 | by emmSee all my reviews

Unbelievable! It's way too good to be true why my local Video Update store carried this VERY RARE biker flick on the shelves. Those who storm through mail-order B-movie companies will recognize this as THE BLACK ANGELS. If you get a chance to rent anything tonight, be sure to look for the out-of-print title BLACK BIKERS FROM HELL. It's the same movie only issued under a name change. That being said, I must tell you that it's the WORST biker flick I've watched in history, and one of my all-time worst movies in the history of motion pictures. The early 70s is THE fad-filled era for terribly horrendous drive-in films that lasted only a single run. Forget PLAN 9! This is just bad as it can really be!

Best described here as plainly plotless and pointless, it carries a title not fully pertaining to the fictional Black Angels. Please notice the laughably corny dialogue spoken, but listen for this crazy weird line: "This time, I'm gonna kill your Frenchy you filthy no good egg-sucking finger-licking snot-picking scuzzy-faced rut!" (say it REAL FAST!). Aside from the new trend of racial (but still campy) violence it presented, nobody wins all throughout the show. For those having faith in excessively bad cinematic taste, I greatly urge some of you to give THE BLACK ANGELS a shot! Then, you and your buddies will soon be convinced why PLAN 9 doesn't reign as "The Worst Movie Ever Made"!
