Hell Riders is part of the Vinegar Syndrome Archive collection, celebrating forgotten cinematic oddities from the video store era. This collection was inspired by our own video store, The Archive in Bridgeport, CT.
The 'Hell Riders' are the most vicious members of a southern California biker gang; so extreme in their activities that they've been pushed out of their gang and are now on their own, roaming the countryside on the lookout for people to terrorize. After attacking a stranded woman, who manages to escape to a nearby town, the Hell Riders decide to pursue her, eventually ending up in the town as well and begin violently taking out anyone who has the misfortune of ending up in their bloodthirsty path.
A spectacularly trashy and weird 80s biker film from the exploitation dream team of James Bryan (Don't Go in the Woods, Executioner Part 2) and Renee Harmon (Frozen Scream, Escape From the Insane Asylum), HELL RIDERS is loaded to the gills with jaw dropping, head scratching, and mind numbing thrills. Featuring Adam West (Batman) and Tina Louise (Gilligan's Island) and co-produced by exploitation legend Lee Frost (A Climax of Blue Power), Vinegar Syndrome Archive proudly presents the world disc debut of HELL RIDERS, newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative.
