Man Eaters! – Val, MotorGrrl
Shot in 2 weeks for $50,000 and using a cast of mostly real life biker chicks, this 60’s cult moto flick turns the classic rolls of bikers and their mammas on it’s head.
In the opening scene, Karen heads out one day in a demure little outfit and hops in her car waving bye to momma. As soon as the first corner is turned however, she ducks into a garage and re-emerges a moment later in a miniskirt, adorably appliquéd kitty cat gang vest and riding a pink 1968 Honda CB 450 K1.
While the ‘Man Eaters’ theme song plays and titles roll, she tears off down the road. Meeting another gang chick on the way, they head to the Man Eaters club house.
Queenie and all the chicks are at the there, preparing for a ‘stud ride’ (a Sadie Hawkin’s style race, if you will). They have ‘half a dozen horny hog riders’ waiting for the gals to race. The idea is the winner gets first choice of plaything for that night’s festivities.
Karen wins the race and and the orgy ensues. Honey Pot, the gang’s newest member, riding a 1959 Honda Super Cub CA 100, isn’t allowed to partake as she hasn’t been properly initiated yet. Karen and Bill head out together and they other get down.
The next morning, the gang has a sit down about Karen. They’re not keen on her being hooked on Bill (she picks him every chance she gets). They threaten to kick her out if she doesn’t stop monogamizing. For good measure, they beat him up, tie him to a bike, and drag him down the road, shredding him to hamburger.
Sex, guts, blood…and all men are mothers!
The next night Honey Pot is finally accepted into the fold and in a blood sister’s right, they swear her in. She get’s all the stud action she’d been missing out on, and the other gals go galavanting in town, where of course they clash with the local authorities.
Run ins with cops, and a rival all male gang of hot rodders begin to escalate. Karen’s old bow Ted tries to get her to quit the life, and inter gang quarrels arise…When the rivalry with Joe Boy’s hot rod gang turn extra nasty there are a slew of gangland shenanigans including a spectacularly bad decapitation, and the roughing up of Honey Pot.
But, as with all rivalry’s sooner of later there’s a slip up. Queenie leaves a necklace behind, at the scene of the shenanigans. The cops get wise and off to jail they go. And with that, the credits roll.
Ah well. It was a good run, Man Eaters!
