From Producer Quentin Tarantino and Writer/Director Larry Bishop comes this lean, mean mayhem machine - fully loaded with bikers, babes, and booze. Michael Madsen, Eric Balfour and legendary "Easy Rider" Dennis Hopper are part of a wild motorcycle gang bent on avenging the death of one of their own. With Vinnie Jones as the crazed arrow-wielding rival gang leader, "Hell Ride" is a savagely enjoyable good-time where the women are hot, the bikes are even hotter, and the action never stops.
