PLOT:

A drug deal is foiled, when the cops show up. They agree to meet in a few days out in the desert and complete the deal. The Angels head for the meeting place. On the way they meet up with the Dragons and are invited to come party with some hippies in an old ghost town. The General, leader of the Dragons (Charles Dierkop) is a psychotic dwarf and his henchman Axe (Gary Littlejohn) isn't to stable either. One of the hippie girls is murdered and the Dragons decide that one of the Angels, LongJohn (Scott Glenn) did it, It gets even weirder from there.

 

MY RATING.........."WATCHABLE"


COMMENT:

Not a bad film. Cool bikes and music. The actors ride like they learned the day before shooting started, but that's most of these films. This was Scott Glenn's and Gary Busey's first film.
