Bikers tangle with the spirits of the dead in this genre mash-up from the writing and directing team the Butcher Brothers. Cody (Cory Knuaf) and Q (Bret Roberts) are a pair of outlaw bikers who are looking to lay low and have a few laughs after a deal with some drug runners takes a turn for the worse. Cody’s mother will be celebrating her birthday soon, so he and Q hop on their hogs and head to Oakland for the festivities. The party turns out to be a major biker bash, with riders from far and wide represented, but when things start winding down, the evening takes a serious turn for the worse. A guest turns up dead, Cody’s former girlfriend undergoes a terrible transformation and there’s no way to call for help. As Cody and Q try to make sense of it all, the party is visited by the spirits of a deceased biker club from the 1950′s, who are restless and looking to settle some scores.
I probably couldn’t give a review on this movie, even if I tried, but I’ll try to anyways, for those who want to see it or know more about it. Let me first start out by saying this movie was a complete waste of time to watch. There are no words to really describe how horrible I thought this film was. From the ads I saw and the trailer I watched, I was expecting this movie to be something like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but it was no where close to anything in that direction.
First of all, there wasn’t enough explanation about the storyline. I refuse to try to sit through this movie again, just to figure if there was even a real plot. The Violent Kind group wasn’t explained in full detail or enough to even understand exactly what they were, and they left me thinking they were Satan’s helpers or something of that nature. Even the ending didn’t make any sense to me. Most movies usually explain the storyline somewhere in the movie, but this one didn’t even do that.
I think the only thing that really kept this movie going were the actors and actresses. Even the gang or group “The Violent Kind” kept me entertained. If the acting sucked as bad as the storyline, I think I would have turned off the movie, really. Still though, it won’t be enough to even give this movie 2 stars. It’s lucky I gave it the 1-Star rating I did.
If you haven’t seen this movie, do yourself a favor and stay away from it. Unless, you enjoy movies without a storyline, and enjoy a mixture of Satanic/Sci-Fi/Slasher type movies, then you might like this film. That’s probably all I can say about this movie.
To make you understand how much I didn’t like this movie, I’ll just say it took a third thought about writing the review on it. I wasn’t even going to waste my time. I figured people have probably seen this movie advertised, like I did, and I would do everyone a favor and warn them about it, before wasting your time and money on it.
