(4/25/17) Frankenstein Created Bikers is Everything You Could Ask For In An Exploitation Film [The Film Philospher]
Thank the grindhouse gods! The Impalers are back from the dead and badder than ever, in writer/director James Bickert‘s new film “Frankenstein Created Bikers”. The horror genre has seen more than its fair share of throwback homages to the days of drive-in, exploitation flicks, over the last few years, but few if any have done it as well as Bickert. He delighted horror hounds with “Dear God No!”, back in 2011, and he returns in even finer form for the sequel. READ MORE
(4/21/17) FRANKENSTEIN CREATED BIKERS (2016) (BLU-RAY/DVD REVIEW) [Zombies Don’t Run]
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 one 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.

(4/15/17) Frankenstein Created Bikers Review [Comingsoon.net] Indie 35mm exploitation epic Frankenstein Created Bikers is a blood-spattered, transgressive shock opera
Atlanta-based filmmaker James Bickert made a splash some years back with a scrappy, obsessive and joyously-perverted 16mm bikersploitation romp called Dear God No!, a film filled with rape, murder and fetishized imagery that was less one of those dreaded “throwback” indie movies and more just an explosion of Bickert’s love of gutter trash blown out all over the screen like a freaky art installation.
While Dear God No! was a fun stunt, a neato one-shot expansion of its creator’s persona, the last thing anyone expected was a sequel and yet that’s exactly what Bickert has given us in Frankenstein Created Bikers. Getting his mitts on acres of unwanted 35mm film stock, Bickert and his colleagues/cronies at his fledgling collective Big World Pictures went the route of Bikersploitation pioneers American International Pictures (AIP) and came up with a title (a nod to both the Roger Vadim film And God Created Woman and the Hammer quote Frankenstein Created Woman) and a killer poster. When there was enough social media interest, Bickert launched a crowd-funding campaign and successfully cobbled together the modest (for a 35mm project) budget and pushed the picture into production. And we’re glad he did.
Frankenstein Created Bikers is demented and epic and even more depraved than its predecessor; a bacchanalia of bouncing bare breasts, bushy beards, stylized smut-speak, spilled blood and body fluids and so many nods to trash cinema’s past that I’m surprised Bickert didn’t get whiplash. Maybe he did. Taking place not that far after the fiery climax of Dear God No!, the film sees the macho and murderous outlaw biker crew The Impalers back in action, even though they were, y’know, dead when we last saw them. The mad doctor from the first film has brought them back from the grave and, a la Herbert West, has hooked their rotting bodies on reagent, their addiction keeping them at the mercy of the sick scientist who himself is also addicted to the drug. The Human Centipede II‘s Laurence Harvey plays a Peter Lorre-esque sidekick who gets off on petty tortures like dumping buckets of thumb tacks into the basement prison where poor, endlessly-screaming Ellie Church and other captive women are kept, themselves tools in the good bad Doc’s mad schemes to bring his undead, decapitated daughter (Madeline Brumby) back to full feminine form. If you’re a filmmaker reading this and have ever wanted to helm a remake of The Brain That Wouldn’t Die, stop dreaming right now. Bickert beat you to it. READ MORE
