KVRX presents WEIRD WEDNESDAY!

THE LOSERS
DECEMBER 6 MIDNIGHT, FREE, DIR. JACK STARRETT, 1970, 35MM, 95 MIN, R

What's even more violent and brutal than an American biker gang high on cheap gas, cheaper grass and truckstop pharmaceuticals, burning a trail of rubber and mayhem along the highways and byways of America? How about an American biker gang in Vietnam with a license to kill and specially outfitted lethal war hogs? That's the hook here and I'm happy to report it's as good as it sounds. This movie is like a 30 gallon drum full of concentrated violence set on fire and rolling downhill right at you! It makes FULL METAL JACKET look like "My Little Pony". The great William Smith plays Link, the cold-blooded leader of the ex-G.I. biker gang The Devil's Advocates. They have been recalled into service to retrieve a P.O.W. being held across the Cambodian border, outside the reach of the Army. So Link and his wild bunch of cycle psychos hit the road on their armored choppers with mounted cannons and machine guns. People get hurt. People die. People explode. Director Jack Starrett (THE DION BROTHERS, RACE WITH THE DEVIL) really knows how to bring the violence. With Adam Roarke, Paul Koslo and Vic Diaz. Unforgettable theme song by Stu Phillips. (Lars)

The Alamo Drafthouse Downtown is located at 4th and Colorado. See you there.
