Storyline

In New Hampshire, a legend is buried. GG Allin, the most outrageous singer in rock'n roll history. He was known for defecating on stage, fighting and having sex with the audience. He died a mythological death from a heroin overdose in 1993, aged 37. Directed by the award-winning director Sami Saif, THE ALLINS is a loving and entertaining look at the family of the departed rock singer. Twenty years on from his all too premature passing in 1993, we meet GG's mother Arleta and brother Merle, each of whom in their own personal way has tried to come to terms with GG's death. Arleta tackles her grief by having her son's gravestone removed from the cemetery in New Hampshire. She is tired of watching his fans pay tribute to GG by vandalizing his grave. That is not the son she wants to remember. She wants to remember GG, the man - a loving son and brother. Brother Merle, on the other hand, keeps himself and the myth about the world's most destructive rock'n roll musician going by selling ...

The Real GG
21 December 2018 | by petersmovieposters-36377See all my reviews

I'm assuming if you're looking at this film you know who G.G. Allin is, if not, suffice to say he's possibly one of the most, shall we say, notorious, rockers of the '80s and 90s. Here, we're given a far more intimate look at G.G. than was seen in Hated, spending quality time with his brother and mother which gives us a better understanding of just what made the Mr. Allin tick.

Focusing more on the man than the music, although there's plenty of performance footage (including prime scatological bits), I came away feeling like I understand what was really going on in those turbulent years prior to his untimely death. From rock icon to posthumous marketing machine G.G. will live with the immortals, which I suppose just might have made him happy.

You might need to know some history of the Allin experience to fully make this movie work but if you do, it's well worth watching.
