GG Allin and the Murder Junkies

MVDVisual, 2007

Do I REALLY need to get into this one? Very well: This is a reissue of the documentary on legendary scum rocker GG Allin. All those stories you heard about him shitting on the stage, and his public nudity, and his habit of slicing his own flesh to bloody shreds, and all manner of anti-social behavior? Yeah, it’s all caught on tape here. With that as a warning (this is GRAPHIC AS HELL), this does provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of Allin, right up to his death from an overdose (you even get some footage of his coffin being carried to his grave). I wouldn’t personally purchase this, since it’s a curiosity you will probably view only a few times and then get bored/jaded, but it is something I could see a lot of punk fans wanting to watch at least once. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you if you have a sensitive stomach.
