ROLLER JUNKIES: REVIEW
Written by VHS
“Roller Junkies” puts a magnifying glass on Hollywood’s poser culture. It follows the story of 2 rival roller-skate gangs who aren’t really gangs at all. Their activities consist of selling bootleg movies, laying by the pool, and talking shit about each other. The characters are a hilarious mix of random personalities. My favorite being Krypto Kim whose skills consist of nails and nunchucks. Krypto is the leader of the Animals, a gang from Riverside who have pushed into the Neon’s territory forcing then to move into Hollywood. It is here that The Neon’s meet Alison, a starry-eyed newcomer to the city. She is quickly scooped up by gang to even the odds and take back their Venice Beach territory.
The movie cracks me up every time I watch it and is one of my favorite films in Jared Masters’ vast catalog of modern grindhouse.
