Film Flashback: Werewolves on Wheels
Time to take a trip back in time to the days of classic horror. Today film flashback will please both werewolf fans and grindhouse fans. Werewolves on Wheels is an old-school exploitation film full of werewolves, motorcycles and horror. Check out the details below.
“The Devil’s Advocates – an outlaw gang of Harley-riding hellions led by Adam (Stephen Oliver of “Motor Psycho” and “Peyton Place” fame) and his ol’ lady Helen (D.J. Anderson) – troll the dusty highways of the American Southwest in search of the next great kick, whether it be sex, drugs, or violence. After dispatching a pair of rednecks unfriendly to their lifestyle, the Advocates run roughshod over a gas station before taking to the road again, where they encounter a cloistered sect of Satanic monks led by high priest One (Severn Darden). A mass-drugging, a ritual sacrifice, a topless snake-dance, and a scene-clearing fistfight ensue, but it’s too late: the spell has been cast, and two shall become… Werewolves on Wheels!
Equal parts road movie biker pic and black magic monster flick, this cross-genre film marked the directorial debut of Michel Levesque, art designer on the Russ Myers films “Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-vixens” and “Up!” Also starring Billy Gray (TV’s “Father Knows Best”) and pop singer Barry McGuire, “Werewolves on Wheels” defies classification. Is it art? Is it exploitation? The answer is a resounding yes.”
