2011 release. Overqualified Krautisch kommune kountry and mock-rock rituals for a cinematic cycledelic monster cocktail. Lychanthropic Z-Movie soundtrack by Don Gere (Curt Boettcher/Kid Dynamite/Don & Stevie), welding motorik redneck funk with broken Eastern promises. Imagine marrying Amon Düül 1 to Sandy Bull in a phony black mass with Skip Spence and The Godz as bridesmaids. B-movie junkies, gather round and prepare yourselves for what could only be described as a cinematic speedball. Take a combined hit of two of the most potent strains of toxic cinema, dress it up in ritualistic robes and make it dance to the beat of a stoned, motorik, country commune soundtrack. Like an exploito double bill where both films merge into a single feature, this directorial debut by an ex-Roger Corman protégé and future Russ Meyer art director (another heady cocktail) is the product of one writing duo's fleeting time in the driving seat as the moviedrome marathon approached its dwindling finish line. Werewolves on Wheels emerged in 1971 in a climate where the B-movie genre of the previous two decades began to make way for the early glimpses of imported slasher films and video nasties. American projection booths were frantically casting the net for surefire domestic, cheaply-made hits, desperately looking for new ideas to milk their legacy of all-American biker flicks and teenage monster-movies, which led to film companies taking gambles on new screenplays from young writers and directors born out the free-wheel generation.
