Four 17 year old girls (Danielle Stavin, Lauren Taler, Skylar Ripp, D'Lannie Brown) form a punk band, Adore Us, mostly out of frustration over having no dates for their high school dance, and against all odds impress small fry manager Mopking (Dave Knapp), who manages to make them a social media sensation via cleverly enough shot videos that mask the girls' shortcomings as musicians and songwriters.

Soon the girls are enough of a sensation to attract the attention of manager Sicily Mane, who operates on a much bigger scale than Mopking, who sees the girls' potential, and who virtually snatches them from him. The girls can't believe their luck and totally fail to see Sicily has her own agenda. Then though the band's lead singer Aspen (D'Lannie Brown) dies in a freak accident, and Sicily has her replaced by her girlfriend Jezabelle (Layla Zova) a bit too quickly. The other girls don't like it, but Sicily makes promise after promise after promise ... until she goes one step too far when she tries to sell the girls to a record producer (Dawna Lee Heising), and the producer can't believe she tries to sell her her talent-free girlfriend Jezabelle yet again with another set-up. She throws Sicily out and even accuses her of murdering Aspen ... and before long, the girls of Adore us (apart from Jezabelle) think so too, because there is some evidence that Aspen got drugged and murdered. And then Aspen comes back from the dead as a ghost to scare everyone shitless - and settle the account with Sicily - but things aren't always as simple and straight forward as they appear to be ...

 

Deadly Punkettes is a fun film that seems to tell a simple story, yet manages to remain totally unpredictable through its whole running time, shifting from the basic story about a young girl band's rise to success to murder mystery and ghost story and back while treating everything with just the right amount of irony, a fittingly innocent note of sexiness, and a few really creepy scenes in justz the right spots. Add to that a competent ensemble cast, a musical score that carries the sentiment of the film rather beautifully, and a directotial effort that's laid back enough to fit the requirements of the story but also atmospheric and tense enough should the situation require it, and you end up with a very enjoyable movie!
