Veteran AIP genre star Larry Bishop (son of famed Rat Packer Joey Bishop
) directs and stars in this gritty revenge tale concerning a biker gang that rallies to avenge the violent murder of a fellow gang member. An homage to such classic biker films as Chrome and Hot Leather
and Angel Unchained
, Hell Ride
was conceived when director Bishop was invited to Quentin Tarantino
's home to view a print of The Savage Seven
. Upon realizing that there hadn't been a true biker film in years, the pair quickly contacted Bob Weinstein
and conspired to produce a lean and mean two-wheeled revenge flick that would more than make up for lost time.
