Recommended Posts

Almost 50 years old and I never saw the movie! Watching it today it was a WOW moment! The movies covers a wide spectrum from the absurd to
the ridiculous. A classic.

There is also a 2019 TV series, that does the story justice. IMHO the movie leaves too much of the story on the cutting room floor.

Book 9/10, Movie 6/10, TV series 9/10

If I remember, there wasn't any secrecy, a bunch of religious freaks, decided that their view of god, was more important than someone's life. Widely reported at the time.

As it is with most religions.

Outlaw Chronicles: Hells Angels 

The Hells Angels are one of, if not the most notorious motorcycle club in history. In this series a former Hells Angels member will reveal the club's secrets. Everything will be told about initiation rites and murder for hire.

Stars:

George Christie, Jay Dobyns, Ronald Puckett

Interesting but the editing was poor. A 45 min episode should have been 20 min as they were constantly repeating themselves.

** 1/2
