Editorial Reviews

The Devil’s Advocates - an outlaw gang of Harley-riding hellions led by Adam (Stephen Oliver of "Motor Psycho" and "Peyton Place" fame) and his ol’ lady Helen (D.J. Anderson) - troll the dusty highways of the American Southwest in search of the next great kick, whether it be sex, drugs, or violence. After dispatching a pair of rednecks unfriendly to their lifestyle, the Advocates run roughshod over a gas station before taking to the road again, where they encounter a cloistered sect of Satanic monks led by high priest One (Severn Darden). A mass-drugging, a ritual sacrifice, a topless snake-dance, and a scene-clearing fistfight ensue, but it’s too late: the spell has been cast, and two shall become… Werewolves on Wheels!

Equal parts road movie biker pic and black magic monster flick, this cross-genre film marked the directorial debut of Michel Levesque, art designer on the Russ Myers films "Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-vixens" and "Up!" Also starring Billy Gray (TV's "Father Knows Best") and pop singer Barry McGuire, "Werewolves on Wheels" defies classification. Is it art? Is it exploitation? The answer is a resounding yes.

Did you ever see those old commercials for Reese's Buttercups? The ones where one person's got a bar of chocolate, another person just happens to be standing around with a jar of peanut butter, and some thing happens causing the two edible products get mixed together? Afterwards the two individuals accuse each other of ruining their respective foodstuffs, that is until they taste the combination and discover `two great tastes taste great together'. Well, that's not really the case here with Werewolves on Wheels (1971), as someone tried to mix two genres (biker films and horror films) together, the result being something that tastes kinda icky, cinematically speaking. Co-written and directed (his debut) by Michel Levesque, who would later find his true calling as art director on films like Supervixens (1975), Cannonball! (1976), and Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (1979), the film features Stephen Oliver, who would later go on to portray the muscled heavy Dugan Hicks in the films The Van (1977) and Malibu Beach (1978), both of which I've had an opportunity to see, for better or worse. Also appearing is Severn Darden (Vanishing Point, The Hired Hand), D.J. Anderson (Dream No Evil), Duece Berry, Billy Gray (The Navy vs. the Night Monsters), inventor of the F-1 guitar pick, and Barry McGuire, former member of The New Christy Minstrels and artist behind the 1960s protest song "Eve of Destruction".

After nearly four minutes of opening credits set against, what else, a group of bikers toolin' down the road, the movie begins proper as said bikers, known as the Devils Advocates (according to their colors), led by Adam (Oliver), chase down a hapless pair of men in an old pick up truck (the driver had a near miss with one of the bikers).

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not as much fun as I expected September 1, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie sounded like it would be a lot of off-beat fun and just my style -- a bizarre blend of the horror and biker movie genres. But unfortunately I ended up kind of disappointed with the overall result.

The movie starts out promisingly enough. We find a typical motorcycle gang of the era cruisin' down the highway to the sound of a great original soundtrack (reminds me of The Band or Grateful Dead). After raising some hell at a gas station, they carouse their way to the vicinity of an isolated and mysterious cult's temple. The cult has in mind using one of the bikers' babes for some kind of strange ritual. This provides us with the coolest scene in the movie, as said mesmerized babe proceeds to give us an eyeful of her nudie snake dance, once again to the sound of the movie's fabulous soundtrack which really adds to this scene. Naturally the bikers bust in just in the nick of time to rescue her, but not before being cursed by the cultists.

Up to this point, I was quite enjoying the movie. But from here on, the movie seems to rapidly go downhill. The gang decides to head out to the desert to "get their heads together". This is when mysterious attacks of some kind of "wild animal" begin picking off members of the gang, one by one. But the pace of the movie at this point really slows right down and becomes quite tedious. It just seems to drag on and on till the inevitable ending.

And worst of all, I found this DVD's cover art quite misleading. I would like to warn you that there is actually only ONE werewolf ever seen riding a motorcycle in the entire movie, NOT a whole gang as the cover would seem to suggest.

I was entertained by this movie in spite of the flaws that come with 70's grindhouse B Movies.

I like werewolf pictures as well as biker flicks, so this movie interested me greatlt; I wasnt disappointed. Movies of this genre can sometimes be guilty of false advertising. For example the movie Hell's Belles, which was not, as the title would suggest, a biker chick movie, or Chain Gang Women, which was not a women in prison flick. Here though, you get just what the title suggests and more; Werewolf bikers and a big dose of 70's satanism.

Yeah there are the ever present moments which either make you wince or scratch your head, but overall, this was an entertaining flick. The music is great, the cinematography is suprisingly good (lots of creative and interesting shots here), and the main character seems to be acting naturally (in other words; his natural real-life personality seems to be very present). I've seen a blue-million 70's grindhouse flicks and this is one of the better ones you can find. You may not be scared while viewing this, but you will probably laugh a lot.

The presentation is great; widescreen and taken from a good print. If youve seen a lot of this kind of thing, and have had your fair share of cheap/shoddy transfers (usually from a beat up VHS) be assured that this is a superior product in a market full of rip-offs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inside and Out December 3, 2005
Format:DVD
I was an extra in this movie in 1971. I was one of the hooded monks. It was really a lot of fun. Scene I was in was filmed across from Bela legosi's old mansion in Glendale, California. I did some of the fight scenes (inside the mansion/castle) with Barry McQuire. This movie is a B-Movie, a Biker/Horror Movie. I saw it years ago on VHS. I'll buy the DVD version as soon as it's released. Nostalgic stuff of the early 70s and in "LA" too. Thirdeyenine.
