B-movie veteran Alex Rocco’s very first film and one of Russ Meyer’s first features. Essentially a pre-cursor to Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill! the plot here revolves around three bad-ass bikers and their escapades. And these three are very naughty boys, ya dig? Surprisingly entertaining, the photography is also real nice, shot out towards Blythe by the looks of it. It tells it’s story in a nice quick-paced manner- 75 minutes and we’re out. Now if you want to read a real review check ’em out below, this one is sure to please B-movie lovers of all ages. Pinewoods Rating System – 2 & 1/2 Pinewoods plus an extra 1/4 Pinewood for the rattlesnake bite scene where Alex forces his female companion to suck out the venom…The Horror!!
Last month I brought you a review of a not-very-good modern biker movie called Exit Speed (2008). This month I bring you a review of a “classic” (meaning it’s in B & W) from the guy who wrote and directed Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! called MotorPsycho! (1965).
Not that I subscribe to cliché, but to find a Russ Meyer film primarily starring men feels like a glaring anomaly-1965’s Motor Psycho, starring a trio of leather-clad hoods who taunt, assault, and murder a few locals during a desert road trip before wandering into war veteran philosophy, is an interesting footnote in Meyer’s filmography, especially in comparison to the cult classic, Faster, Pussycat!
The Sheer Horror!!
