THE FAKERS MORPHED INTO HELL'S BLOODY DEVILS

years: 1967 original and 1969 recut cast: John Gabriel, Robert Dix, Scott Brady rating: ***
Although meriting one of the greatest opening credit sequences after a two minute trailer that seems separate but is actually part of the film that has a complete list of credits on its own, this misleading but gloriously fun mess isn't a biker movie but a low-budget spy thriller.

"Is this a spy or biker movie?"
A handsome agent meanders from one situation to another seeking out neo-Nazis, bedding down babes and being chased by lethal goons, and the biker aspect is connected by a sexy woman who, after talking on various pay phones after each spy sequence, will then converse with, and give orders to, four bikers: part of the titular gang (led by Robert Dix) shown sporadically roaring down the highway. And on the spy side are various scenes with Broderick Crawford, Scott Brady, John Carradine, and the James Bond character played by a fittingly-suave cool-cat, John Gabriel.

If you center solely on the original movie, THE FAKERS, from which the biker stuff was pasted on after this film was abandoned and retitled HELL'S BLOODY DEVILS, it can be an entertaining, and often involving, exploitation fluff that only director Al Adamson could provide. But if you want to see a biker movie meant only as a biker movie, check out Adamson's cult classic SATAN'S SADISTS starring HELL'S BLOODY alumni Gary Kent, Robert Dix and Scott Brady.
