Man, those character descriptions are hoot and a half … After the surprising financial success of their first hell-razin’ outlaw biker flick, Roger Corman immediately followed up The Wild Angels with another sordid tale of motorized hooligans. Based loosely on a Monterey, California, incident back in 1965, where several members of the Hell’s Angels were accused, arrested, and later acquitted on several rape charges, Devil’s Angels came to the same conclusion for the fictionalized Skulls club — but then deviates rather radically on the biker’s reaction to being railroaded by local law-enforcement. Needless to say, the locals didn’t “Stay out of their way…”

I believe I was born with a defective gene that explains away my preference for the Tottenham stomp  of the Dave Clark Five over the Mersey beat of the Beatles. Perhaps this same mental defect explains my complete and total indifference to Rosemary’s Baby. Now, now. I don’t hate the movie. It has merit. It just, I don’t know, never really clicked for me. (My lifelong aversion to Mia Farrow probably isn’t helping matters, here, either. The old Beelzefudds were a hoot, though.) That’s me shrugging right now.
