The Satan's Sadists, a bikergang led by psychopath Anchor (Russ
Tamblyn) roam the countryside, raping & occasionally killing everyone
who crosses their way ... but then they come across Lew's (Kent Taylor),
& while they manage to kill Lew & most of his costumers, they have
to find out that one costumer, hitchhiker & Vietnam veteran Johnny
(Gary Kent) might actually be able to outsmart them ... first he kills
those who were supposed to guard him, then takes of with waitress Tracy
(Jackie Taylor) in her Dune Buggy, & when that thing breaks down, the
2 of them head for some rocky formations, which make it impossible for
motorbikes to follow ...
However, the Sadists have soon picked up
Johnny's & Tracy's trail & are slowly closing in on them ... until
Anchor lays his eyes on 3 lovely campers (Yvonne Stewart, Randee Lynn
Jensen, Cheryl Anne) he takes captive, & has drugged, raped &
killed, much to the dismay of his girlfriend Gina (Regnia Carrol), who
then immediately commits suicide.
Meanwhile Johnny picks the Satan's
Sadists who are pursuing him one by one & kills them off, until of all
the gang only Anchor is left ... who in the showdown even manages to shoot
& injure Johnny ... but ultimately is killed by a knife Johnny
carefully throws so it is only stopped eventually by Anchor's neck ...
Adamson was never a man of subtleties (why do I always mention this when
I'm reviewing an Adamson movie ?) & Satan's Sadists is probably
the movie that best proves this claim, a combination of sex &
violence that uses it's slim story/genre formula merely as a vehicle to
... well, show sex & violence. The film is remarkably free of any kind
of redeeming value, let alone cinematic of narrative finesse- but let's
face it, in its bluntness it's a very honest piece of cinema ...
let's just hope none of the Hollywood airheads ever have the idea of remaking
this one into a 150 million $-exrtravaganza.
