New to LA, naive and loveable Allison (McKenna Alvizo) manages to track down her stoner dad (James F Gregory), and she falls in with the notorious skater gang the Neons - even though she can't skate - that "control the beach" by selling cheap 3D glasses. Though "gang" might be a big word as apart from Allison the Neons have only two other members, leader Sno Flake (Jayda Raymond) and knife thrower Lucky (Rylee Singer). And they're soon threatened to be driven off the beach by rival gang Animals - leader Krypto Kim (Elizabeth Rath), slingshot expert Venus (Jiullean Cooper-Watson) and bad luck Jinxie (Aly Rae Santos-Tanner) - who sell their 3D glasses even cheaper. This leads to many altercations, ambushes and the like, until the two gangs decide to bury the hatchet, and they're having a big party to seal the deal - which is cut short when Allison collapses and dies. And now it's up to Detective Shmoe (Art Roberts) to determine whether it was murder - or just an allergic reaction to peanuts ...

Dawna Lee Heising plays Allison's estranged mother.

 

Made like a semi-(pseudo-)documentary, including interview segments and the like, Roller Junkies comes across as a fun parody of 1970s girl gang flicks, and it certainly hits the retro-tone pretty perfectly via camerawork and colour scale while never pretending to be a period picture. But it is also very enjoyable for audiences not at all into yesteryear's cinema as it does tell an engaging story, avoids an over-reliance on its "source material", and even reducing things to a very small scale works for the movie in a pretty hilarious way. So in all, good fun for sure!
