“Nothing prepares you for the film’s simple brutality and off-the-cuff style.” - TimeOut
THE SHATTERING TRUE STORY OF THE HELL’S ANGELS OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA! THE VIOLENCE… THE HATE… THE WAY-OUT PARTIES… EXACTLY AS IT HAPPENS!
At first, gas station attendant Poet (Jack Nicholson!) is glad when the gang “Hell’s Angels” finally accepts him. But he’s shocked when he learns how brutal they are – not even murder is a taboo to them. He gets himself in trouble when the leader’s girlfriend falls in love with him, setting the stage for a lawless blowout that’ll shake the highways into dust.
This primordial biker masterwork not only stars Nicholson, but was helmed by the incomparable Richard Rush (THE STUNT MAN; FREEBIE AND THE BEAN) and features a veritable who’s who of the era’s greatest stuntmen, from Hal Needham to wildman Chuck Bail to Austin’s own beloved Gary Kent!
