MAD FOXES (1981)
Being a big fan of the Mexican biker flick INTREPIDOS PUNKS I had to check out this Eurotrash biker flick that looked very similar from it's trailer and luckily it was. We trade out the Lucha-Libre masks for Nazi armbands but we get a similar gang of evil bikers looking to cause trouble, My personal favorite amongst these fine fellows is a big George Eastman-looking guy named Stiletto(Eric Falk) who gets down with the raping and some balls-ass naked kung fu moves. This film has everything a sleazy grindhouse-loving fan could want in an exploitation flick. The dubbing is absurd(giving people weird lisps like Daffy Duck), the violence is insane involving everything from grenades in toilets to castration to deep-throating hedge-clippers. Mothers and fathers are gunned down, kung fu massacres occur and somehow the police never show up to spoil anyones fun. The one strange thing about this is how totally unlikeable the "good-guy" character is in this. I mean the guy seems like a spoiled rich-kid who basically starts off the rollercoaster of revenge by murdering one of the bikers with his snazzy sportscar so I'm not sure how much we are supposed to sympathize with him. It does all end with one of my favorite types of endings, which combines nihilism and explosions, so I highly recommend checking this one out.
