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…”

When head Godzilla guru, producer Tomoyuki Tanaka, took one look at Yoshimitsu Banno’s finished film he declared the first time kaiju director would never work for Toho again, decrying he had ruined the franchise. That’s being a little harsh, as I find Godzilla vs the Smog Monster to be a trippy, surreal mess of awesome — you will believe a monster can fly, folks. But! The lack of the “Save the Earth” American International dub on Sony’s otherwise fantastic DVD is a crime, and that’s why I will never, ever part with my old VHS copy. Also of note, I did not know that actor Kenpachiro Satsuma, who played Hedorah, the Smog Monster, had to have an emergency appendectomy during the production — while still strapped into the rubber suit! Wow. As for our sequel to Count Yorga, despite the fact that the villain died in the last installment, with no explanation for his resurrection, and the fact that it’s basically the exact same movie as the first, the brass at AIP were bound and determined to groom Robert Quarry as a replacement for Vincent Price as their reigning King of Horror. And, well, we all know how that turned out, don’t we?
