Black Bikers from Hell (1970)

Des Roberts, John King III, Linda Jackson, James Whitworth
Laurence Merrick
Hell breaks loose when an African American biker gang known as "The Black Angels" is tricked into believing a white gang is planning a war. Written and directed by Laurence Merrick, who would earn an Oscar nomination for his 1973 documentary Manson, Black Bikers From Hell is a slice of cheapo, early 1970s drive-in heaven. Filmed on an exceedingly low budget, using actors best described as amateurish, the movie serves as a bridge between the last days of the biker genre and the soon to be flourishing Blaxploitation era.
