San Francisco Subcultures, 1999: Sex, Death & Eyeliner

When I started going to San Francisco goth clubs in January of 1999, I heard tell of a film crew — “The same people who made The Prophecy!” — who were shooting a documentary about the local scene. (The Los Angeles goth scene too, but what-EVER.) Some of my best friends were interviewed, but I kept my distance from the cameras.

The resulting movie Sex, Death & Eyeliner didn't receive any significant distribution beyond a few festival screenings and a brief release on VHS in the early 2000s, though in classic Jazz Singer / Xanadu fashion, the soundtrack was fairly successful.
