Easy Rider: The Ride Back

Easy Rider: The Ride Back is an actual film, a sequel and prequel (because we needed BOTH, apparently) that totally doesn’t wizz all over the memory of the original. Okay, it probably does, and with no style. But it exists, so we at least have to give it the courtesy of making fun of it!

The plot (ganked from IMDB)
In this revisionist drama, the film delves into the family lineage of Wyatt Williams, the character made famous by Peter Fonda in the original Easy Rider Movie. Centering around the Williams family, and their internal family struggles throughout the eras of the 40′s to present day, as they struggle to connect with one another through the only way they know how. Their love of motorcycles and the freedom of the ride.

Director Dustin Rikert has directed such awesome films as Death Hunter: Werewolves vs. Vampires and Alien Invasion Arizona (films even Foywonder hated!)

You can tell how much Peter Fonda was for this by his non-appearance in the credits. Granted, you probably know why he shouldn’t be in it if you have seen the original. But he’s not even playing his dad/son/whatever random relative. If you want to see the trailer, it is up here. As for me, I’ll stick to films about Japanese girls with alien parasites up their butt, because they’re made with more care.
