Hellcats is a showcase for all-out biker debauchery...and it delivers! Seriously, if you like extended scenes of outlaw bikers and their chicks getting drunk and stoned, dancing, and being violent and gross, this is your film! There's a biker chick named Candy Cave...very subtle!
The Hellcats are a drug-dealing biker gang who work for the mob moving drugs from Mexico to the USA. The plot, so to speak, involves a Vietnam veteran and a hippie chick who infiltrate a biker gang to avenge the killing of the veteran's cop brother. The chick is the dead brother's fiancée.
While in a biker bar (where else?) the vet convinces them that he's a real biker, so the gang lets him join...just in time to participate in a long freak out session. For the next ten minutes, it's nothing but drunken debauchery as the Hellcats drink beer, dance and spray beer on each other, dance some more and laugh at a gang member flipping out on bad acid.
Beer soaks every frame of this sequence, while the camera is jerked in and out in that good old-fashioned 60's "freak out" style. Amidst the mayhem, the vet starts making out with his brother's fiancée.
The soundtrack is terrific and bizarre! Sometimes it's cool rat pack jazz, other times it invokes menacing drama. But the coolest is the 60s fuzz-bubblegum-pop-rock music by two groups; Davy Jones and the Dolphins who perform "Hellcats, "Mass Confusion," and "I Can't Take A Chance" and Somebody's Children who perform "I'm Up" and "Marionettes."
