Bury Me an Angel (1972)
Directed by: Barbara Peeters
Writer/director Barbara Peters was one of the few female filmmakers who specialized in entertainingly trashy low budget drive-in exploitation fare in the 70s and early 80s. Peters often worked for Roger Corman's B-flick studio New World Pictures. She made her feature debut as co-writer and co-director of the soft-core lesbian outing "The Dark Side of Tomorrow." Barbara followed this movie with the gritty distaff biker item "Bury Me an Angel," the amusingly silly comedy "Summer School Teachers," and the enjoyably inane "Starhops." Peters achieved her greatest notoriety with the wonderfully nasty horror creature feature winner "Humanoids from the Deep."
Tautly directed biker film, told from the woman’s point of view. The heroine sets out on the road to avenge her brother’s murder, toting a shotgun and meaning business.
You can complain all you want about low budget production values, but BURY ME AN ANGEL is a lot better than most biker pictures of the age, telling a "revenge-on-the-go" story that satisfies. Best of all, it defines both revenge and attitude at the same time! This is as solid as it gets with writing a feminist statement into an exploitation movie that doesn't require a single damsel going under a lot of painful distress. Many drive-in movies have copied off this tiring idea numerous times before (like the women-in-prison idea), so this movie was obviously going into a new direction. The key word is revenge, and it defines exactly what this movie is about, not withstanding the pressure of most filmmakers who still haven't learned how to make good exploitation. (IMDB Jason C.
