I didn't know what to expect from UNHOLY ROLLERS, but with the words "unholy" and "rollers" in the title I was hoping for some sort of Satanic rollerskating action...that didn't happen, but it would have been cool! Has there ever been a movie about a successful roller derby team that owes it's prosperity to Satan? If not, there should be. Anyway, UNHOLY ROLLERS is your standard Roger Corman-produced 70's movie: low budget, quick pace, female nudity, light on story, heavy on cheap thrills, mediocre acting. That's really about it. I honestly just kinda sat there watching the whole thing in a trance. The story is unimportant and Claudia's character goes through life with zero concern for the consequences of her actions. Example: after being attacked by some lesbians who strip off her clothes on a bar room pool table, she leaves with a dude on a motorcycle. She finds a gun in his bag and immediately starts firing it off at random signs and people on the street. This is just a normal event in her life!
Overall, it's a mildly entertaining film, but nothing worth going out of your way to see. On the positive side, there was a quick glimpse of Princess (MUDHONEY) Livingston in a crowd scene and a brief appearance by Kathleen Freeman as Claudia's mom. Also a young Martin Scorsese was the Supervising Editor. How strange is that?
Holy fook...it's Princess Livingston from MUDHONEY!
