Lovedolls Superstar: Fully Realized’s recent DVD release is a great opportunity for trashy cult film fans to sink their teeth into something truly stinky. Ironically, this sequel to Desperate Teenage Lovedolls is a cult film about an Los Angeles-based rock band’s cult who show their admiration for The Lovedolls by offing their enemies in really disgusting ways. For instance, an amusing run-in with hallucinogenics makes Lovedolls mullet-wearing fan Carl Celery carry out an assassination of competing rocker Brews Springstien. The great character names don’t end their, allow me to introduce Lovedolls’ bass player Kitty Carryall, guitarist Alexandria “Cheetah” Axethrasher, and drummer Patch Christ, formerly Patch Kelley. Collectively, they assemble the trashiest group of rock goddesses ever portrayed on film.
The movie might be lacking in a budget and a comprehensible narrative, but it certainly doesn’t lack in fake blood and crude behavior. With music by bands such as Sonic Youth and Dead Kennedys, Lovedolls Superstar may add itself to the highest ranks of trashy cult rock pictures. Personally, the movie is too tasteless to render a DVD purchase for myself; however, I did get a good chuckle out of the general Lovedolls experience, and would recommend it to anyone deserved of senseless laughter.
The DVD itself is fairly well-designed with audio commentary by David Markey (director) and many others, deleted scenes, and a bonus featurette. It’s good buy if you’re looking into perking up your collection of obscure films, but if you’re looking for a well-made film, don’t even consider Lovedolls Superstar.
