hysteria: the def leppard story
director: ?
In what is quite possibly the only biographical film in which the actors are less attractive than their respective real-life counterparts (with the exception of Anthony Michael Hall as Mutt Lange), VHI continues its transformation into a Rock and Roll Lifetime Network complete with endless Album Title-Colon-The Musical Artist Story films. Merideth Baxter Birney's absence notwithstanding, Hysteria is a fun, trashy re-enactment and would garner a C+ for the goosebump-inducing "Studio Magick" moments of the Pyromania sessions alone if they didn't rush us through the more critical moments of the story - namely reducing Steve Clarke's death to a stop-motion end credits blurb.
