The DVD cover calls it an "unrated & uncut" version, but the gore isn't hardcore. There are a few torture scenes, a good bit of knife play, and bikers munching on sexy naked women. There are a few really funny moments thrown in such as the "Apple Pie" biker, especially on the part of Brandon Jay McLaren as Dirk. The downside is that there are plot holes, weak explanations, and story lines introduced only to be abandoned for most of the movie. I also wasn't a big fan of the open ending, which leaves the audience with too many questions.
It was directed by Penelope Buitenhuis, who has a great deal of experience shooting for television, so overall the movie is shot well. Since the movie was filmed in Canada, most of the cast are Canadian actors with mostly television experience. As a longtime fan of Miguel Ferrer (Protected Witness Eduardo Ruiz in "Traffic"), I thought that he wasn't used to his full potential in this film.
If you're a horror fan, Hard Ride to Hell is worth a rental. While not a film that I would have bought a movie theater ticket to see, it's still a bit better than most Redbox horror flicks. Watch it once before you decide to buy the DVD.
The film was enjoyable and I found myself thinking ahead to a sequel coming down the pike maybe for 2012 or something. There is still a lot more story here to explore. However the dialogue could have been a little deeper and fluid with the story. As some characters pulled of noticeable plausibility others seemed to almost phone it in just waiting for a payday.
This film is a good one to see and if biker exploitation horror is a thing your into definitely pick it up. It has everything you may like. I don’t normally go for biker horror stuff but I am not hetero so that pretty much should solve that. This film I liked a lot. It had psycho bikers, satanic worship, mythology, gore, action and possession. So yeah definitely a film for the collection.
