Of the RDS films I've seen, this, along with The Thrill Killers, is my favourite.
It just has great 60s B-movie flair and seems to me, anyway, super original.
You can tell Steckler just wanted to make a film SO bad and did this, which was apparently made for $20. That's a real inspiration.
This little gem is also quite atmospheric, especially in the opening scene, and the soundtrack fucking kicks ass.
I also love the rendition of the motorcyle and bitch cab idea, where the hero stands in the bitch cab and points to their destination...who's the bitch now. That aspect definelty made for great laughs.
As Steckler says in the intro, this is a real good film for aspiring film makers.
This is one peculiar sucker. Even if you're not enjoying the film you have to keep watching simply because it's an odd cookie. But why you wouldn't be enjoying it is beyond me. It's pretty fast paced, allowing the plot to get ahead of itself and letting you catch up and it keeps chugging, but you won't be bored. It's low on violence and gore but it's high on fun (god that's corny) as it's simply enjoyable to watch the biker gang be hooligans along with the simple but effective score, that's one of the coolest I've heard. It definitely has that 70s British B-Movie feel, which isn't bad at all, as long as you're into that. It needs a better name though, but this one is kind of cheesily attractive. Anyway, it's a classic B biker with a supernatural plot, so I'd really like to know what's not to like.
I've got to admit: I'm not a huge anime fan. In fact for the most part I find it a bit boring. What attracted me to this film was the story- old man get put in a life support machine and it goes crazy and he become a robot ravaging the city. Plus it was done by the same dude as Akira and I love that movie to no end.
The actual movie is actually pretty cool and funny. I would suggest watching it if you want to see something different.
It had slow pacing, much like the Hammer films and other horror flick from the UK, which lead me to believe that it's a thing about british cinema.
Besides that it was interesting enough, and out-there enough to be enjoyed.
It's quite a kooky horror tale.
