Black Angels

The same year that producer-director LAURENCE MERRICK made the oddball vampire film Guess What Happened to Count Dracula, he also unleashed Black Angels, a loopy yet cynical biker flick about a white motorcycle gang vs. a black motorcycle gang that’s jam packed with absurdities, semi-authenticities, and even some ass-kickin’ action. (The film also opens with a chase...Read More


Its engine roars with a deafening thunder. The sleek, dark profile cuts through the night like a sword through flesh. Devoid of human emotion, it kills to live. It has torn into our dimension from the Hell of another world. An alien being with a mission to destroy the one person on earth that prevents its immortality. There is no place to hide - when the MURDERCYCLE...Read More

It's A Revolution Mother

Savages From Hell

Bikers, beach parties, body painting, death by dune buggy, interracial lust, and a good old-fashioned catfight all gleefully collide in Savages from Hell, the manic followup to Shanty Tramp from producer K.

Teenage Mother

Before he became known for distributing such drive-­in epics as I Drink Your Blood, I Eat Your Skin, and I Spit on Your Grave, JERRY GROSS directed two fascinating little quickies - Girl on A Chain Gang (’65) and Teenage Mother (’67) - that are textbook examples of classic old-school exploitation. In fact. shot­-on-Long-Island Teenage Mother seems to take its inspir...Read More

The Girls from Thunder Strip

Simply put, it's male bikers vs. female bootleggers. And if that ain’t a perfect example of drive-in-style High Concept, nothing is! With a cast that reads like a Who’s Who of Sixties exploitation.

The Hippie Revolt

The Rebel Set

"Are you beat?" asks coffee-shop impresario Mr. T. "Oh, sure, man," his sleazy friend Sid replies."Cool, way out, and long gone, dad!"

Sidney - played by instantly-recognizable...Read More

The Psychedelic Priest

Originally titled Electric Shades of Grey (the on-screen title of SWV's pristine print), The Psychedelic Priest is a real rarity from the tail end of the hippie movement.

Hippies! Incest! High-School Hookers! Drug parties! lesbians! Free-love! Suicide! And. .. well, psychiatry.

The Beatniks

Beatniks? What beatniks? Two-bit punks, a closet rock-&-roll star, and an out-of-his-mind psycho: yes. Beatniks: no. Though The Beatniks was probably a last-minute title change to replace a less exploitable moniker, it didn’t make much of a difference to the audiences of 1960. After all, to a world emerging from the Eisenhower era, bohemian artists and beat-generati...Read More
