This “revved up and explicit” (Variety) biker bonanza from AIP is about bad-to-the-bone chopper chicks hellbent on destruction.
When her rodeo star boyfriend Jeff (Ross Hagen) dumps her to marry a local wallflower, badass biker babe Shayne (Diane McBain) – leader of the motorcycle gang known as the “Mini-Skirt Mob” – decides that she won’t give up without a fight and instigates a sadistic reign of terror against her ex-lover and his new bride, straight-laced Connie (Sherry Jackson).
Shayne enlists the help of her gang – which includes her younger sister, Edie (Patty McCormack) – who all wear the shortest of miniskirts, have drop-dead gorgeous bodies and wear hair-sprayed hairdos and go-go boots. Their boyfriends, led by the not-very-bright Lon (Jeremy Slate), drink copious amounts of beer and belch a lot.
Jeff and Connie are about to begin their honeymoon in their trailer alongside a riverbank when they are descended upon by the bikers. One thing leads to another, and an ostensibly friendly harassment of the newlyweds becomes a deadly combat directed by Shayne.
There is plenty of rambunctious vitality and crude humour but the film never stoops for the cheap thrill. It’s sharply-paced, well-photographed, and the whole production has a great sense of freedom.
