(2006/VCI) NTSC, English, Color, 1974, Code 0, Dolby Digital Einer der besten Bikerfilme, kam 1976 ins Kino und avancierte kurz danach zum Kultfilm. Videokopien wurden begehrte Sammlerstücke. Zum 30jährigen erstmals auf DVD in der Director's Cut Version mit restauriertem Bild und Ton plus Bonusmaterial ! Northville Cemetery Massacre...it takes time and something special for a film to become an international motorcycle cult favorite. Built in Detroit by independent filmmakers in the early 1970s, the film stars Detroit's Scorpions Motorcycle Club. They wore colors and rode Harleys. Tough, stand-up, action-driven, these bikers were riding the dream. They valued freedom of the road. They held strong and paid the ultimate price.

Made by independent filmmakers in the 1970s, this classic biker movie concerns a group of Hell's Angels, portrayed by the Detroit Scorpions riding through Missourri. After the assault and rape of a young girl by a crooked cop, they are blamed and hunted down with disasterous consequences.
It puts a surprising new angle on the mythology of the biker gang.
For any fans, this is a must. At 80 minutes long, it is worth watching.

I would recomend this film to any fans of the genre and exploitation films in general. The plot is uncluttered and the characters engaging. If you are reading this review you have probably seen other biker films from the 70s and so you know what to expect. If not, this is as good a starting point as any.

A good solid dependable biker film, with a few good twists and turns along the way. A large portion of the bikers you see on screen are a real life biker gang called the scorpions, which adds an interesting element of authenticity for afficionados of such things.

Recomended. Enjoy!!

My family's property is in this movie! 24 April 2011
By Kelly L. Norman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I love this film, partly for its campiness, partly for the fact that it's about my hometown of Northville, Michigan. Well, a very bizarre version of my hometown. Very low budget, and a bit heavy on the "generation gap" references, but not too bad of a story involving misunderstood bikers, corrupt law enforcement officials, and vengeance. The opening scene is tense but ends in hilarity; there are a couple rather brutal scenes, and there's even a few homages, including a "Patton" speech in front of a flag hanging in a garage.

If you are a fan of campy horror films, or just b-movies in general, this is a cult classic. Pick it up sometime.

Freedom: R.I.P. 16 July 2013
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com

Billed as "The Ultimate Biker Flick," "Northville Cemetery Massacre" fails to quite live up to that hype, but don't let that discourage you; it is one of the more interesting independent biker films of the 1970s. Filmed around Detroit and starring members of Detroit's Scorpions Motorcycle Club, the film has an interesting realism relative to all things motorcycle, but unsurprisingly falls down in the acting and production values departments.

The film opens strongly with a scene in which you suspect the bikers are going to brutalize a stranded elderly couple, but actually end up changing their tire and helping them, thereby establishing them as strong protagonists. If they are the protagonists, it's almost a given that the cops will be the antagonists, and in that assumption you'd be correct. After an unsavory interaction with the evil sheriff in a barn and a trip through a car wash on their bikes (the bikers really did appear to be having fun in their roles) the lines are drawn. While the final conflict does in fact occur in the Northville cemetery, there's an especially good earlier scene in an outdoor theater (which made me for a while think more accurate titles might have been "Northville Drive-In Assassin" or even "Northville Bathroom Triage.")

The compelling action is interspersed with long vistas of Harley-intensive cross-country travel which bog down the pace somewhat. There are also interesting comedic moments in the film (note the house with the periscope in a monk statue which segues nicely to a "Patton"-esque soliloquy in front of a US flag; I will also note that skunk pelts make unusually stylish chapeaus.) The discussion about how you can't rent hand grenades was especially entertaining to me. The film reaches the cemetery eventually for the big setup for the good versus evil duel, and the biggest production expense (helicopter rental) makes its onscreen debut; it turns out that there is a wily biker plot to ensnare the evil cops, which is surprisingly effective though it leads to an intentionally ambiguous ending.

The film is very low budget and has a real dearth of genuine acting talent, but what the bikers lack in thespian qualities, they make up for in realism in their roles. A highlight of the film is the excellent musical score from Michael Nesmith, which works very effectively with the material. As an artifact of the 1970s, this is an interesting project and I am glad I saw it. Don't expect a slick film with big name actors, but for historians of the genre or people who just want a bit of low budget biker action, this is an entertaining journey back in time.
