Werewolves on Wheels (1971)
Tagline: This Gang Thought It Was Tough… ’til it found a new type of hell…The Bride of Satan!
November 19, 1971
Pretty decent horror exploitation film about a group of bikers who are werewolves. If you’re looking for a fun, but very flawed low-budget flick to watch, then give this one a viewing. If you love these types of low-grade films, then this is for you. The film does lack in the plot department, and most of the time, it’s pretty dull, and the acting and directing aren’t that great either. However, the idea behind the film is pretty neat and fun, and there is enough here to make it worth seeing it once. There’s twisted, supernatural elements that’s apparent throughout the film and it overcomes it flaws just enough for you to enjoy it. The film is sleazy, cheesy and tongue in cheek, and has enough things going for the exploitation film fan. However for the common horror fan, this one may be hard to watch as there’s really not that much substance to its plot and effective, standout performances. Werewolves on Wheels is decent, but never great. This is one of those obscured low-budget gems that really defined exploitation films for what they are. Fun, unfocused and ultimately forgettable, this really could have been a stand out film, but in the end, it leaves a lot to be desired out of the plot. If you come across this title, give it a watch if you have nothing else better to do. This is a decent picture that has an interesting premise, but never does take off. Fun, but leaves you wanting more out of a film.
