MOTOR PSYCHO (1965)
This is basically Russ Meyer's version of a biker film made before there really were any biker films. It's also a rape-revenge tale and there's a crazy gun-wielding veteran running amuck and, of course, there's boobs. It's sorta the flipside of Meyer's FASTER PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! with the gang of rape-happy malcontents being male this time out. This is one of my favorite of Meyer's films and unlike most of his stuff it's mostly played pretty straight except for this one hilariously over-the-top bit where star Alex Rocco screams at the top of his lungs about sucking out the venom from his snake-bite. One of the other stars of this, the super-hot Haji, recently passed away so if you're looking for some quality Haji action, as well as some toplessness (which is something you don't even get in PUSSYCAT) then this is the movie for you.
