LEGEND OF THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN:
It is essential to note that the filmmakers: Scott Shaw and Donald G. Jackson, in no way endorse the version of the film, LEGEND OF THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN.
LEGEND OF THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN is a film made up of footage taken from THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN and RETURN OF THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN, reedited and released, breaking all contracts with the filmmakers, and ultimately destroying their creative vision for these two films. Plus, there was some bad narration added to this version of the film.

RE-RETURN OF THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN
This is a RARE, Never-Released, Re-Mastered, Screener Copy of a film titled, RETURN OF THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN. This is not, however, the Director's Cut or the version of the film RETURN OF THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN created by the filmmakers: Donald G. Jackson and Scott Shaw. Thus, it has been Re-Tilted, RE-RETURN OF THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN. This version of the film was created under the supervision of the Executive Producer. It is predominately made up of edited footage taken, re-cut, and placed in a different sequence from the Director's Cuts of the films: THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN and RETURN OF THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN. This edit makes the film much more mainstream and less chaotic from the Director's Cut and it is interesting to view another production team’s interpretation of the footage.

ROLLERBLADE SEVEN: THE UNSSEN SCENES
During the 1991 creation of The Roller Blade Seven and its sequel, Return of the Roller Blade Seven, the filmmakers: Donald G. Jackson and Scott Shaw shot over twenty-four hours of 16mm footage. Much of that footage was never used for the final edits of these two feature films.
Narrated by Scott Shaw, this film explores the unused footage and takes the viewer behind the scenes of these Cult Film Classics.
BOOKS ON OR ABOUT THE ROLLER BLADE SEVEN:
Over the years there has been a lot of speculation about the characters, the true meaning of scenes and of dialogue, and the creative process used in the creation of The Roller Blade Seven.

There is a great discourse on The Roller Blade Seven and an interview with Scott Shaw on Zen Filmmaking in a book by Michael Adams, Showgirls, Teen Wolves, and Astro Zombies: A Film Critic's Year-Long Quest to Find the Worst Movie Ever Made.
There is a interesting extended review in the book, Destroy All Movies!!! The Complete Guide to Punks on Film. Though the reviewer focused on Legend of the Roller Blade Seven and confused the charter played by Don Stroud with that of Joe Estevez, it is amusing.
The Psychotronic Video Guide To Film also has an extended review of The Roller Blade Seven. Though this author somewhat confuses the title and the release history, it too is humorous.
Over the past decade or so a few bands have been using footage from The Roller Blade Seven for their music videos. Very Cool !
From Iceland, you can hear the great music of Schuyler Fiskur Piltur for their song Trap, set to footage from RB7.
And, from Australia, you can hear some vintage electronica and watch some tweaked RB7 footage in The Roller Blade Seven Remix by VJzoo; Music by Chrism + Fenris.
