Sid Vicious

Final 24: His Final Hours DVD

Review by Gary Hill

No matter what you think of The Sex Pistols, punk rock or Sid Vicious, this is a fascinating, if morbid, tale. Vicious began his final 24 hours in jail, charged with murder. His mother bought him the heroin on which he had overdosed. The murder he’d been charged with was his girlfriend’s. He’d been through hell in the last month or so of his life. It has all the makings of a novel, yet it was true life. This series has a bit of a “can’t stop staring at the accident” element to it. This is one of the most interesting of the series, though. It’s a fascinating view of the punk rock scene and Sid Vicious. The story is a tragedy.
