Unholy Rollers is another gander into the rough, tough world of the femme roller derby, a folo-up to Metro’s Kansas City Bomber on same subject. Same type of violence and near-mayhem highlight this story of the rise and fall of a skating star.

While script by Howard R. Cohen concentrates more on the violence of the track than straight story-line, there’s sufficient propelling narrative to keep audience amply rewarded.

Yarn focuses on Claudia Jennings, who leaves her factory job to win a place on a roller team and almost immediately become its star through her departure from the routinely-planned phony action of opponents on the track and plays for real.

Jennings does yeoman service with role which necessitates her taking plenty of lumps.
