  • Batman & Ginger Meet The Cycle Misfits! by 1

    This has to be the worst, and I mean worst biker movie ever made! And that's saying a lot because the line of stinkers is long and smelly!

    Now at least we know what happened to Ginger after she was rescued from Gilligan's Island! A frightened looking Tina Louise(she was probably afraid someone would see this mess!)is a stranded motorist who is tormented by the most repulsive motorcycle gang in film history. But, don't worry fans! Batman, I mean Adam West as a hick-town doctor comes to the rescue! Pow! Crush! Boom! Holy Toledo Batman!

    The only good points of this "bomb" are some cute women, some laughable fight scenes, and the still "sexy" Tina Louise!

  • A Pretty Bad Movie Overall by 3

    This movie essentially begins with a small group of bikers known as the Hell Riders being evicted from a larger motorcycle gang and being forced to fend for themselves. It's at this time that they come upon an attractive lady from Las Vegas named "Claire Delaney" (Tina Louise) who just happens to have car trouble on a deserted stretch of road. Although they beat her, she manages to escape to a nearby town where she manages to find a sympathetic doctor named "Dave" (Adam West). However, the sheriff in this town has no interest in upholding justice and refuses to become involved. This decision eventually results in tragic consequences when the motorcycle gang rides in. Now what initially drew my interest in this movie was the fact that it featured both Tina Louise and Adam West. Unfortunately, although they both performed adequately enough, the extremely poor script and the lumbering direction provided by James Bryan resulted in a pretty bad movie overall. Accordingly, I rate this movie as below average.

    What else can you say about this movie,except that it's plain awful.Tina Louise and Adam West are the reasons why to see this,but,that's it,but their talents are wasted in this junk.I think that they used a double in some of Adam's scenes,like when he's running because you can't see his face.If Adam was embarrassed in being in Zombie Nightmare,just think what he must've felt about appearing in this??? If it was before or after,I'm not sure,but,still,Zombie Nightmare is a classic(check out the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version first and last)compared to this.The gang is very annoying and over-acting by some of the actors.A rip-off of The Wild One starring Marlon Brando,of course.Tina looks stunning though.I hope her and Adam got a good paycheck!! Pass!

  • Hell is Right! by 1

    How sad to see the beautiful and talented Tina Louise reduced to making this horrible excuse for a film. Tina still looked fit and attractive, but for some reason seems truly frightened. I can understand her fear; fearing that this 3rd rate stinker would somehow be released to the general public. Also, I'm a fan of the likable Adam West. Again, as with Tina, Adam looks good and in great shape for a man his age. His acting here is passable, but the script is so bad, that it's difficult to even listen to the dialog.

    The movie is a rip-off of the classic Brando biker flick, The Wild Ones; out-law biker gang is out-of-control in a small hick-town. The bikers here look like a motley group and I sure wouldn't want them to date my sister. The acting is stiff and wooden, and the story-plot is as old as sand. Hellriders is hell to watch!

  • The absolute pits! by 1

    This has got to be one of the worst movies ever made. Even for a biker movie, it's rock bottom. The minimal plot involves a gang of bikers taking over a small town (how original!) and the townspeople's attempts to fight them off. Why don't they call for outside help? Who knows? The fight scenes are obviously fake. Adam West and Tina Louise are in it but both have little to do and both look ashamed to be there (understandably) This movie belongs in the trash heap!
