Assisted by Anton LaVey (high priest of the Church of Satan), Bobby Beausoleil (of the Manson family) and Mick Jagger (who wrote the music), Kenneth Anger makes a psychedelic manifesto on the coming of the anti-christ, as a precursor to his “Lucifer Rising”.
Motor gang “The Devil's Advocates” burns rubber as its members hit the tarmac looking for kicks. When they cross paths with a satanic sect, the night is filled with alcohol, drugs and fistfights. But the next day their hangover turns to horror when they morph into... werewolves on wheels!
A hymn to paganism and the new satanism of Aleister Crowley. The music by Bobby Beausoleil carries this psychedelic work by Kenneth Anger to a near-mystical conscience, reaching far beyond the sensory horizon of the sixties generation.
Murder, drugs, rape! Set to groovy sixties’ tunes, bikers are on a manhunt lead by a psychotic Russ Tamblyn (Dr. Jakobi of Twin Peaks), his manic eyes hidden behind red sunglasses. A filthy and immoral B-film in which Al Adamson buries the love generation under several feet of desert sand!
