Todd Phillips’ (Old School, Starsky & Hutch, The Hangover) debut film is a documentary about the notorious punk musician G.G. Allin. Allin, who died during post-production from a heroin overdose, was famous for his excessive and confrontational manner especially during his shows where he’d perform naked, defecate onstage, yell obscenity, and get physically assaultive/assaulted. You know, all the good stuff. Hated: GG Allin and the Murder Junkies includes interviews with Allin, band members, fans and haters. It goes through his childhood, includes amazing footage of his legendary shows, insane party moments alongside quieter moments, and scenes from his funeral.
