I waited for a long time to see the sequel to Dear God No, Frankenstein Created Bikers. I feel that next to Astron 6’s Father’s Day and Drew Bolduc/Dan Nelson’s The Taint, that James Bickert’s Dear God No was on of the very best indie horror films to come along in about a decade. So to say that Frankenstein Created Bikers had some big shoes to fill is a bit of an understatement. Now having seen it for myself, I’m happy to report that those shoes are more or less filled. Frankenstein Created Bikers brings on more of a plot this time around. The gang has been brought back by the same doctor they tortured before. He’s supplying them with some stuff to keep them going in exchange for them hunting down bigfoot. His daughter played by Madeline Brumby is being kept alive as well in a way that pays full on tribute to the classic The Brain that Wouldn’t Die. The doc is aided by Klaus, a shady character played by Laurence R. Harvey. The bikers are in and out of sorta feeling remorseful for what they had done before (some members more so than others) but they are being hunted by a relative to a couple of the gang’s members played by Tristan Risk and her gang of bikers and strange hitmen. Also, as an added bonus we have a kidnaped and always naked Ellie Church around as well. Basically, if you are looking for a modern day exploitation classic you instantly get that with Frankenstein Created Bikers. There’s never a dull moment, there’s always something hilarious going on, and it always stays true to its genre with violence for the sake of violence more times than not. I don’t know about you guys but that is just the type of violence I like in my movies.
While we have a lot of remember and like about the film, I have to say that Jett Bryant in the role of “Jett” steals the show. He’s killing people, making moves on the ladies, and dropping cool quotable lines from start to finish in this one. If there was one thing I could say I kinda wanted in this movie that we don’t get is a little bit more Bigfoot but when we do get the creature it comes with some fun and bloody moments with it. All in all, as far as Frankenstein Created Bikers go as we sit right here in the month of April 2017, this is by far the best movie of the year I’ve seen. Hands down, it isn’t even close. As for the Blu-ray release, this is the one you’ll be wanting to own as it comes with Dear God No in the extras if you select the Drive-in Special Feature. I already had Dear God No! on Blu-ray but it is awesome to have both films on the same disc (a 50gb Blu-ray) and have it on a pressed disc. While I won’t spoil what you see, I will say it pays to play around a bit in the extras, especially in the language selection area of the disc. Shot on Super 35mm films, Frankenstein Created Bikers looks amazing. There is a look you get from film that you just can’t get with a digital camera and it fits the mood and vibe this one is giving off. The movie is full of dark humor, blood, boobs, and foul language.
