Kathryn Bigelow made her feature film debut as a director with this stylish homage to the 1954 classic "The Wild One."
Trouble ensues when a motorcycle gang stops in a small southern town while heading to the races at Daytona. Leading the gang is the tough, unemotional Vance, who becomes attracted to Telena, a pretty young local girl.
The bikers also include Debbie, a blonde who proves to be just as tough as the guys in the gang.
Bigelow and co-director Monty Montgomery concentrate more on character and mood than plot, and have included a lot of rockabilly music throughout the film.
A group of reckless bikers, on their way to the Florida cycle races, stop for lunch in a small town diner. There they wreak general havoc, and as night falls, the local townspeople make plans for revenge.
Additional cast: Tina L'Hotsky (Debbie), Lawrence Matarese (La Ville), Daniel Rosen (Ricky) and Philip Mont Kimbrough (Hurley).
Released theatrically in the USA on January 20, 1984.
Produced by Pioneer Films; distributed outside the USA by Mainline.
