Stars: Betty Connell, Nancy Lee Noble, Christie Wagner
Description: An all-female motorcycle gang, called ‘The Maneaters’ hold motorcycle races, as well as terrorize the residents of a small Florida town, and clash off against an all-male rival gang of hot-riders.
It’s a classic! I love it! Betty Connell is Queen, leader of the Man-Eaters, a female biker gang with a lust for violence and sex! Sounds good, doesn’t it?
This was my first H.G. Lewis movie I had ever seen and to tell you the truth, it’s not as controversial as it sounds. There’s scenes leading up to sex that doesn’t happen, the violence is mediocre compared to what Lewis did in “Gruesome Twosome”, “Blood Feast”, and “The Wizard of Gore”! There’s a great decapitation scene, mutilation by chain, a beaten girl with a bloody nosering with a note attached, and a fight between the Man-Eaters and a male biker gang that results in bloody chain whipping and lots of gutpunches! Great stuff! The dialogue is priceless (“Man-Eaters is right! Half our dues are spent cleaning the sheets around here!”; “We treat men like pieces of meat. It’s about as romantic as buying a hunk of bologna.”) and would sound great as sound effects on your computer! The music is either lifted from “Gruesome Twosome” or original stuff that would make a great soundtrack CD! So go check out “She-Devils On Wheels”, it’s a whole lot of fun!
