This was a weird one. The story follows a bratty teen biker gang who spend most of their time ramping motorcycles off tiny hills and pulling shitty pranks out in public. Turns out the biker gang’s leader’s mom practices some weird “frog” black magic shit, and he overhears her telling the butler the secret to immortality, which turns out to be pretty simple. Kill yourself. The catch is just before you commit suicide you have to be thinking “I really really really really want to live.” Pretty much the whole gang kill themselves in a myriad of lame ways and come back to life, and then a bunch of other shit happens…which mostly result in a lot of closeup shots of bullfrogs.
I went into this expecting some campy 70s zombie-biker goodness ala “Werewolves on Wheels”, which this movie is not. This movie is part psychedelic motorcycle porn, part hippie musical, part slowly paced gothic British drama, with a touch of a frog fetish.
Noteworthy tidbit: It’s possible this film was the inspiration for the Ghost Rider comic character. The comparisons are obvious and this film predates the comic by a year, AND during the hippie musical scene the dude singing refers to Tom the leader of the biker gang as “Ghost rider”! Purty sweet.
Also, the director of this film committed suicide shorty after its completion. He thought this shit was REAL.
