Werewolves on Wheels (1971)

Doesn't Get My Motor Running

Biker gang The Devil's Advocate ride along one dusty road after another causing trouble where ever they go with their exploits looking for the next moment of excitement. After a days riding they crash down at a monastery full of monks. But these monks are the satanic variety and whilst all the bikers are asleep they lure one of their women to be part of their satanic ritual which angers the leader Adam (Stephen Oliver). But after leaving the bikers start to drop off one by one as they become aware that something changed during their stay with the monks.

Upfront I will say that "Werewolves on Wheels" was never likely to rank highly with me as I have never been a huge fan of 70s biker/ exploitation movies. Their low budget nature has simply been a big turn off and they always end up being a let down as they have a good title but that is it. And that is what you get with "Werewolves on Wheels", a good title, a couple of decent songs but not a lot else especially werewolves which makes it a real disappointment.

With that in your mind you might ask well what else is there and to be honest there isn't much. There is weak action as are bikers cause trouble but more often than not it is heavily edited so you never really see it and there are some equally weak moments of nudity including a dull topless ritual dance. The trouble is that none of this makes it stand out from other biker/ exploitation movies. In fact about the only thing which stands out is some of camera work as it takes in the landscapes is much better than you would expect.

What this all boils down to is that "Werewolves on Wheels" is an under whelming 70s biker/ exploitation movie which despite the memorable title is in fact pretty forgettable. Maybe for those who watched it back in the early 70s it might hold some charm but those experiencing these movies now for the first time over 40 years later will find it dull.
