Arlo & Esme 42 E. 1st street (between 1st & 2nd ave)

Werewolves on Wheels (1971)

“We know how we’ll die, we’re gonna crash and burn, baby”

A biker gang, The Devil’s Advocates, is off on a routine, hell raising romp when Taro suggests they visit a Satanic monastery, after an ominous reading of one of the girl friend’s (Helen) taro cards.

“We’re gonna see the devil, snort a ‘lil coke with the devil, drop a ‘lil LSD with the devil, we’re gonna talk with the devil”

On arriving, a bunch of robed monks give them bread and wine, and when the gang passes out on their front lawn, they sacrifice a cat, and nab Helen for a ritual.

“Heavy, someone’s controlling the vibes”

Luckily the gang wakes in time to rescue poor Helen, and they split the scene. Unfortunately for them, it seems the cult’s ritual has left the mark of Satan on the gang, and Helen isn’t quite the same. Makeout sessions turn to bikers becoming werewolves and killing other members. Movie (named for his voice impressions) gets it bad, and Taro leaves the gang because of the bad vibes.

“one foot in heaven and the other in hell. One eye on the bible, one eye on the gin”

All in all this film should be cheap, low budget fun, but The cinematography and original soundtrack make it great. The opening scenes reminds you of easy rider, and the score is by Don Gere, and is my new obsession. Nowhere can I track down an LP, or even barely a mention of him or the songs, other than that everyone who sees the film loves it as much as I do. Below is the opening scene from the film with his music and part of a song.

Enjoy
