worth it
14 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While sparse and not as visually appealing as 'party monster', the 2003 motion picture with macauley culkin and seth green, this documentary has a shocking realness to it. it is also know as 'party monster - the shockumentary' on DVD, but I believe that it is only sold on region 1 dvds. it offers up an honest and heart breaking look at the rise and fall of the new york club kids, and michael alig himself. it is full of Michael Alig interview footage, and interviews with his mother and many of the club kids, including but not limited to Keoki and James St. James, Micahel's best friend who wrote 'disco bloodbath', the book that inspired the 2003 movie.
