Your New Wednesday Dose
Of Not-So Classic Cinema


Break out the popcorn! The Isotope is proud to announce that for the upcoming weeks we will be bringing our guerrilla cinema to you each Wednesday, beaming a weekly dose of hand picked cult pictures to your home, office, lap or desktop. We've been sifting through the dregs and detritus of the public domain and rounded up some favorites from days gone by for our on-going on-line flick fest for your viewing pleasure. Expect to see great swinging tunes, atomic mutants out for blood, juvenile delinquents on a rampage, eye searing terror, and plenty of that low-rent kitsch you're been hungering for!

This week, we present to you, humble viewers, the finest in classic hotrod cars, bad boys from the other side of the tracks, sexy blondes in tight shirts, insipidly catchy songs, goofy teen idol good looks, and the world's biggest cell phone...

The Choppers (1961)

Hot rods, hot rock, and hot hair are the jewels in the juvenile delinquency crown of this 1961 drive-in exploitation flick. Featuring the debut of sixteen year-old Arch Hall Jr. as Cruiser, the spoiled rich kid with a taste for crime and his band of troubled teens who call themselves cool names like Torch, Flip, and Snoop, and specialize in stripping cars in record time. This is the movie that made you mom weak in the knees and your daddy worried about the crowd you run with.




Featuring the some exceptional less-than-hit songs from the awesome Arch Hall Jr, including non-classics like "Konga Joe" and "Monkey In A Hatband." Arch Hall Jr's other screen credits include Wild Guitar, The Sadist and the ever-popular Eegah!
