THE PLOT THUS FAR
Mother has just got out of prison and wants to get revenge on the biker gang that put him there. He teams up with his old gang “The Angels” and they head to the desert to get even. Soon, Mother’s obsession begins to take it’s toll on his relationship with his girlfriend, Marlene, and the respect his gang has for him quickly dwindles until he is left alone in the desert to fend for himself.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Jennifer Gan was really hot, but the film is terrible. Plus, it’s another misframed release that has me doubting where Shout Factory is getting these transfers. While some sites have made the case that they are VHS sourced, I can’ t exclusively bet the house on it. However, there is visible distortion and print damage throughout the show. Some might say that adds to the aesthetic appeal.
Much is made of the crew’s big motorcycle rally from LA to Vegas. However, nothing fucking happens. It’s a biker revenge flick and there’s only about two minutes of payoff in the whole movie. I know that Corman didn’t take a credit on the flick, but he should’ve put his foot down. When you break the rules of B-movie action, you pay with a film that’s not smart enough for the high-brow and still too boring for the low-brow.
The DVD comes with no special features. The Dolby 2.0 mono track is historically accurate. The transfer leaves a lot to be desired, but it’s not a deal breaker. That being said, I would eventually like to see all of these Corman productions from the 70s make it to Blu-Ray. I’m just not holding my breath. It’s a purchase only for the superfans.
