The salacious story of Limelight has already been made into a feature film — 2003's Party Monster, starring Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green — but now the infamous club gets the documentary treatment. Limelight, in theaters Friday, tracks the career of Peter Gatien, owner of the titular establishment as well as most of the other hot spots that made up the eighties-nineties New York City club scene. It also features an interview with Michael Alig, the former club kid who murdered another Limelight employee, Angel Melendez, and dismembered the body before dumping it into the Hudson. In this exclusive clip, Alig speaks about the murder investigation, his time at Rikers Island, and doing heroin in the back of a cop car. See for yourself below.
