Desperate Teenage Lovedolls (1984)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Slam Punk

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

One of the cheapest films of the 80s, this fearless rock 'n' roll flick was actually shot on Super 8! In it, an all-girl punk band finds sudden success and succumbs to the perils therein. It's a truly amazing artifact with great music, some of it by Los Angeles punk/pop group Redd Kross. Director Dave Markey also made a 1986 sequel, Lovedolls Superstar, and went on to direct 1991: The Year Punk Broke, featuring Nirvana and Sonic Youth.
