In the early 90s, Michael Alig rose to prominence as a club promoter and founding member of the Club Kids, before being arrested for the vicious murder of Angel Melendez while high on ketamine.
His story was brought to the big screen twice by directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, first in 1998’s “Party Monster: The Shockumentary” and again in 2003’s “Party Monster,” starring Macaulay Culkin. This is Based on a True Crime.
Based on a True Crime is a podcast where Chelsea’s love of true crime and David’s love of horror movies intersect. Each week we will be discussing murders and/or mysteries, along with the pop culture they have spawned.
