  • movie Description
  • Pump Up the Volume is a cult favorite filled with teenage angst and an outspoken rebel leading a revolution. Mark Hunter (Christian Slater) is the quintessential bad boy who just needs a mic and a radio show to speak his mind. Filled with anger and humor, Mark tries to let the student body and fellow teenagers know about the atrocities of his world. His pirate radio show is a small blip of aggression until a fellow student commits suicide, even after Mark - Hard Harry, as he prefers - tries to talk it out. Another student, Nora Diniro (Samantha Davis) searches Mark out wanting to know who the mysterious rebel is. The radio show booms with popularity and soon becomes the voice of teen reason for the school, as student after student acts out by harming themselves. The rebellion begins to spiral out of control, as well as sexually-obsessed Mark. Even the FCC comes calling when the injuries start to stack up. Can Mark and Nora get their word out before they're forced to turn off the dial?moreless
