Beyond the Valley of the Dolls Russ Meyer's racy, colourful tale about an uninhibited all-girl rock group is not a sequel to its predecessor, "Valley of the Dolls," despite its title. Filled with some of the most bizarre characters and situations ever seen on film, it spans nearly every film genre – comedy, musical, horror, murder, sex and melodrama. When three female rock 'n' rollers travel to Hollywood to claim an inheritance, they meet up with a kinky music promoter who turns them on to a whole new scene. At first, all seems very exciting and the naïve trio becomes submerged in his dangerous tinseltown underworld – before they discover his true motives.
