Storyline

New York City. 1987. A new group of individuals arrives to fill the artistic power vacuum created by Andy Warhol's untimely death and the demise of his "Factory", in the form of The Club Kids. They would reign supreme over The City's nightlife through an era of decadence, debauchery and creative heights, which culminated with the death of one of them as well as the party itself. Their undisputed leader was Michael Alig, who came to New York with dreams of working in the fashion industry, only to find himself at the head of a nightlife movement which went far beyond anyone's expectations, reaching outrageous proportions. It ultimately imploded catastrophically with Michael going to prison for the murder and dismemberment of fellow Club Kid and drug dealer Angel Melendez. This coincided with the death of the NYC Super-Club era. Written by Ramon Fernandez

Great movie documentary about Michael Alig. If you were in NY at that time, watch it to remember, and if you were not, like me, it will take you there and you will you wish to be there...You for sure will not get bored while watching it. All those interviews, with the everyone who loved him or hate him, or both; those old images from NYC. Simply fascinating, how the movie can take you to that weird church where everyone partied like if there was no tomorrow. No doubt you have to watch it, and you will love it. If you like to party, crime documentaries, or just if you want to learn a bit about an interesting character like Michael Alig...You know where to go Great Job. I love it!
