The millionaire’s crooked lawyer hires thugs to kill the heirs so he will inherit everything. Also at the mansion is a mischievous ghost girl (with an invisible bikini), some dopey bikers, and a busload of teenage surfers who just want to have a good time.

Miami Connection

Miami Connection – 1987 – United States

Miami Connection was masterminded by writer/producer/director/actor/martial artist Y. K. Kim. Shown only in Florida, Miami Connection was a commercial failure, bankrupting its creator. It remained unheard of until its 2012 re-release by Drafthouse Films (the video distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema theater chain in Texas). With its charming mixture of insanity and sincerity, Miami Connection seems poised for cult status.

Moonfire

Moonfire – 1970 – United States

I saw Moonfire on the CFS Releasing DVD The Convoy Collection, also containing Trucker’s Woman (1975) and Concrete Cowboys (1979). All three flicks are mistitled on the DVD box. What do you expect from a collection that exclaims “Don’t muck around with these two-fisted mother truckers!”?

The Hellcats – 1968 – United States

I dig biker flicks. Outcast dudes/dames and open road freedom enthrall me. Herschell Gordon Lewis’ She-Devils on Wheels (1968) is a favorite, along with High Desert (1993)—so obscure it isn’t on IMDB. It’s a rather miraculous feat that The Hellcats takes this lively subject and saps out all its life.

Nightmare Weekend

Nightmare Weekend – 1986 – United States/England/France

Nightmare Weekend is a haphazard mash-up of cyber-science, mutants, bikers, and T&A. As a French/English/American co-production with 2 writers and 3 producers, its sordid production history is undoubtedly interesting. Unless they are using pseudonyms (highly possibly), much of the cast and crew never made another flick (excepting Andrea Thompson of NYPD Blue). That’s probably for the best.

Trip with the Teacher

Trip with the Teacher – 1975 – United States

Despite a bikers-rape-coeds plot, Trip with the Teacher transcends sleaziness with touches of gritty intensity. Similar to The Sadist (1963) in tone and content (although not such a masterpiece), Trip with Teacher bends clichés and injects emotion into its exploitative premise—a suspenseful, gripping flick regardless of lowest-common-denominator mindset.

She-Devils on Wheels

She-Devils on Wheels – 1968 – United States

It’s impossible not to compare She-Devils on Wheels with Herschell Gordon Lewis’s juvenile delinquent flick, Just for the Hell of It. Shot in the same year, She-Devils features the same actors and themes. While Just for the Hell of It is more interesting, with better style and shocks, but She-Devils is still intriguingly raw, strange, and funny.
