Favorite biker movies
« on: March 16, 2011, 06:59:55 PM »
I know this topic may not be appropriate for the category it's in but, I'm going for it. I recently watched, The Wild Angels (1966) for the hundredth time and would like to know, what are some of your guys favorite biker movies?

Born Losers (the first movie to feature Billy Jack)
Easy Rider (of course, so iconic)

Easy Rider & The Wild Angels are a given!  I've got to admit, I really dig 60's-70-s exploitation biker flicks - some of my favorites are Hells Angels On Wheels, Angels Die Hard, Werewolves On Wheels, The Savage Seven and Born Losers.  Man, there's quite a few others that come to mind - The Glory Stompers, Angel Unchained, The Losers and how could I forget The Wild One (from 1953!)!

These seem to go better with the vice (or vices) of your choice ;D.

Does "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" count as a biker movie? :P "Yes Janet, life is pretty cheap to their kind!"

Yeah!  C.C. & Company - I have that on an old VHS tape.  William Smith is awesome in it and Sid Haig is hilarious!  I might have to have him sign my tape at Maskfest/Horrorhound.

How about Psychomania? British bikers coming back from the dead. A weird, fun movie but I don't think a single one of those guys would last a second against Big Bill Smith!

Haven't seen many, of course Easy Rider is the main one.

I remember seeing UP's Werewolves on Wheels t shirt in a pic and had to immediately googled the movie. Ended up on my NetFlix soon after. Wassup UP!

I bet he'd love to see fans remembering his earlier stuff!
