Also known as Hell's Angels Unchained, Angel Unchained was directed by Lee Madden, written by Jeffrey Alan Fiskin, and produced by American International Pictures. Filming locations included Phoenix, Arizona, and real-life bikers were recruited for the film. Angel Unchained marked the film debut of T. Max Graham, who played Magician.
The film had its United States premiere in August 1970, before being theatrically released nationwide on September 2, 1970. Up till at least December 1971, there were still screenings of Angel Unchained in Gadsden, Alabama. A soundtrack recording was released in 1970 on American International records featuring music composed and sung by Randy Sparks.
A reviewer of The Nevada Daily Mail considered the film to be an unsuccessful attempt to combine elements of both The Wild Angels and Easy Rider. Although offering that the film was not quite meaningful, he found it to be a "fair motorcycle picture".
