Werewolves on Wheels


1971       Severn Darden

Grab hold of your seats, horror film fans! In spite of all the silver bullets pumped into them on the silver screen, the werewolves are back. Hollywood's top monster (unless you're one of those Sister Mary's who's frightened by the likes of Frankenstein's monster and vampires) not only kills again, but even rides a motorcycle in a hair-raising thriller-chiller aptly titled, Werewolves on Wheels

The Fanfare Corporation release stars Stephen Oliver and Severn Darden, and has a plot revolving around an encounter between a gang of motorcycle toughs and their "old ladies," and a strange Satanic cult, resulting in two of the gang being transformed into lycanthropes - werewolves to us laymen. The gang keeps losing one or two members a night while roaming the California desert, until one of the chopper-riders, who's hung up on the occult, tunes in to what's happening and forces the werewolves among them to show their true fangs.

The idea of having one motorcycle gang plus one Satanic cult equal Werewolves on Wheels realistically represents one

more successful attempt by fright filmmakers to sell popcorn; to lovers of cinema horror fare it's another opportunity to see one of the more popular and enduring screen monsters in action.

The werewolf, in fact, first became a favorite of moviegoers in 1935, in "Werewolf of London." But the legendary figure capable of turning into a wolf, willingly or unwillingly by the light of the moon, really hit his stride in the Forties, with a series of films that began with "The Wolf Man," played by Lon Chaney, Jr., "House of Frankenstein" and "Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman." Two others, "The Curse of the Werewolf" and "Face of the Screaming Werewolf" were of early Sixties vintage. For those who liked their horror mixed with humor, there was "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein," made in 1948 and featuring the Wolf Man.

Werewolf films of recent time which made drive-in owners chuckle with glee were "I Was a Teenage Werewolf" (why not?) and "Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory" (subtitled "The Ghoul in School").

Which brings us up to the latest offering, Werewolves on Wheels which really is a ridiculous idea . . everyone knows that werewolves don't ride motorcycles, let alone choppers.

But maybe The Fanfare Corporation has something there. Last heard, the film company was planning to produce a sequel entitled, "I Married a Teenage Werewolf Who Rode a Chopper."
