ABOUT THE FILM

A competition at a roller rink is the setting for this 1970s time capsule with an amazing pop culture pedigree: Co-written by regular John Carpenter collaborator and THE LAST STARFIGHTER director Nick Castle, the movie stars Scott Baio, Patrick Swayze in his first big role (as evil womanizing skater Ace), Ron “Horseshack” Palillo from WELCOME BACK KOTTER, Flip Wilson, the Unknown Comic and doomed Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten. And did we forget to mention Billy Barty and THE BRADY BUNCH beauty Maureen McCormick? Wall-to-wall roller skating and disco-era kitsch make this a must-see cult classic.
