sex drugs and rock and roll..
15 March 2005 | by whiskeysippin1See all my reviews

I have heard about this movie for a long time but was never able to get a copy of it. A friend of mine in the DVD duplicating business was able to get hold of a copy and we had a party to look it over.

First this is a time capsule,great seventies feel about it. Its a bit rough here and there and its obviously not a huge budget but it does get hooks into you.

The music is great, John English's "shotgun" is a mean piece of music and that "red green and yellow" thing does rattle around the old brain box for days.Basically its a rock and roll road movie and the music is good, even if the acting is a bit patchy here and there.There is plenty of gore,blood and action just when its needed to make you jump.

It starts a trifle slow,and obviously has some padding in the form of a series of hot cars at a car show, but by the time the action starts around 10 minutes in its a mover. I like this picture and would have rated it higher if it had a bit more "polish" but nevertheless its a picture you don't mind seeing over.We screened it twice and lots of interesting things seem to pop out the second time that we just skipped over the first time. I had a few "looseners" by the time the second screening was on and its a much better movie seen like that.

The movie has never been seen on TV apparently because it was the cause of the Fathers Day Massacre in Australia, or at least thats the industry rumor according to my friend.

Showtime DVD in Perth Western Australia are rumored to be closing a deal to release the picture.Thats where my friend got the copy to look at,its an industry copy for distributors to look at When the Fathers day massacre occurred the co star John Wilson was there with his girlfriend. Apparently according to the news reports she was the first person shot dead. Pretty weird coincidences here The last scene of the movie is a massacre involving the Commenchero bikers. Maybe it was the cause of the massacre because these were the same bikers involved in the actual real life massacre. Maybe the bikers just wanted to bring cinema to real life.

Its a movie I would recommend to see. Its almost impossible to get a copy and there are widespread rumors about it all through local biker clubs but if you read the net about the Fathers Day Massacre and then see this movie I can certainly see a connection.
