Movie Info

Claudia Jennings stars as Karen Walker, a woman who sets her sights for roller derby success. Released a few months after Raquel Welch's Kansas City Bomber, Unholy Rollers gives the Welch film a run for its money, despite its exploitation budget, by adding nudity and lesbianism. After being sexually harassed by her loutish boss at the factory, Karen walks out of her job and tries out for the roller derby. She quickly wins a spot on the team and rises to the top, intent on ignoring the violence and grandstanding and concentrating on winning games. Although her teammates dislike her, Karen becomes a hit with the roller derby fans. But soon, her desire for victory becomes an obsession and she ends up losing not only her cool but also most of her clothes.

Audience Reviews for Unholy Rollers

Claudia Jennings is a real cutie in this one, playing a feisty factory worker who joins a roller derby squad and becomes something of a fan favorite, in spite of what success does to her personal relationships and how her teammates relate to her. Fun breezy look at a sport that I had never really given much thought. Give it a look if you have the chance.
