Werewolves On Wheels (1971)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal

Werewolves On Wheels (1971) As much as I am a fan of werewolves, I stand by my belief that "Werewolves on Wheels" would've been better WITHOUT the werewolves... That's a strange statement to make considering I usually want lycanthropes to appear in every single film I have ever seen, if only for a moment. Every bad movie just needs a werewolf, but this film works just fine as a 'bikersploitation' that decides to tack on five minutes, total, of werewolf material set in some of the worse lighting imaginable. All that really did was take a decent film about motorcyclists and devil worshippers and leave me disappointed in it's complete misuse of man-wolf beasts...

The movie follows a biker gang called the Devil's Advocates who are burning up the desert road, causing all sorts of ruckus among the local shop owners and expressing their motorcycle brotherhood through constant roughhousing and drinking. They end up stopping near a tower where they are approached by a large mass of hooded figures offering up wine and cylindrical bread which causes them to pass out. One of their biker babes joins in a ritual involving naked table-dancing, blood ink, and snakes until the rest of the gang wakes up and busts up the ceremony. Then, like nothing happened, they continue their easy-ridin', but not all is well when they begin getting killed off in pairs by an obvious werewolf(s).

Up until the wolves make their appearance, "Werewolves on Wheels" has a prime 'biker flick' routine going on. Steve Oliver is pretty awesome as well as Gene Shane as the misunderstood shaman who seems to be the only one put off by the satanic vibes. Like I said, in the end when they start turning into werewolves, the 'camp' factor is through the roof, but not in a good way due to the horrible lighting. Still, without werewolves I'm almost certain the film would NOT have had such an awesome title... You could do worse than WOW so I'd have to go with: moderately recommended...
