The script was only 45 pages long and it was never meant to be a feature film. The director lost his day job the week shooting began (and by extension the main source of finance for the shoot). He was later evicted and moved back in with his Mom, where some pick up shots were completed. The producer injured himself and had major back surgery a few weeks after shooting began - eliminating both the producer and the only other source of funding for the shoot. The first murder scene was shot three times in two different locations, and they still forgot to shoot the whole scene. A 10 minute green screen sequence was shot after the film was first signed to a distributor to try and make it feature length... but was never completed because nobody knew how to do that really. The film cost less to make than it would cost to buy a second hand car, but this is mainly due to the fact that nobody who worked on it was paid. The film premiered in Melbourne in November 2013 on two sold out screens. MURDERDROME has been released in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, the USA and Canada and has been screened too many times to count by many different derby clubs around the world. At the US premiere in Louisiana some of the Northshore Roller Derby came dressed as characters from the film. MURDERDROME's first review called MURDERDROME "An instant cult classic". MURDERDROME is StrongMan Pictures Entertainment's second feature film, although their first feature, From Parts Unknown : Fight Like A Girl, was only premiered in Melbourne this year. See more »
I purchased this DVD from Amazon without knowing what it was, but the synopsis seemed like it could be a good movie, and the DVD cover made it look all the more interesting.
However, I managed to get about 20-30 minutes into "MurderDrome" before I had to give up out of sheer boredom and having lost all interest in the movie. There was nothing to keep me interested in watching more, as it was basically just about watching women driving around on roller-skates, and throwing awkward dialogue around.
I had initially expected a bit more compelling storyline and a somewhat more captivating movie, but I found my interest fast dwindling away. And I can honestly say that I do not plan to make a second trip to the movie in the hopes of watching it to the end.
I am sure that there is an audience for this type of movie out there, I just wasn't in the particular target audience. If you enjoy a roller-skating movie about feisty girls, then "MurderDrome" might just be what you are looking for. Otherwise, give this movie a wide berth.
