STARRING:
Des Roberts, John King III, Linda Jackson, James Whitworth
DIRECTED BY:
Laurence Merrick
GENRE:
Drama
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.
