Holy Rollers
Church of Skatan
1997, 30 minutes
Current Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Holy Rollers is a 25 minute skateboarding sermon from the crusaders of the Church of Skatan, circa 1997. The video features mostly raw footage of pros, ams, and some friends riding street, with anything from stairs and rails to flat land as well as some mini-ramp. The music consists of family favorites such as the Wu Tang Clan and Public Enemy, as well as positive contributions from Metallica, Motorhead and AC/DC.

I watched Holy Rollers expecting very little but was pleasantly surprised. The combination of good music, quality skating and crappy filming gives the video a homemade feel. Fortunately, the focus is on the skating, with the little guys killing it. Silvey is smooth and Baptiste is four feet of switch-stance power. I also really like Joey Pulsifer's part, featuring his smooth style, good tricks, and shuvits that really pop. The nice thing is that every time I felt the video getting repetitious, they threw in a mini-ramp trick or two to grab my attention. Clever! The montages aren't too bad either. One even has Rick McCrank killing some bowls with huge flip tricks. Overall, the video is one solid effort.
