If you've seen STREET TRASH, you know that it contains some of the goriest nonsense the 80s ever produced. If you haven't been exposed to it yet, you'll get your chance to witness its filth in high-def this summer when it comes to Blu-ray via Synapse Films. And you'll want to hold off on eating beforehand.
Given a new High-Definition transfer from the original camera negative, STREET TRASH will melt your eyeballs on June 11th.
In the sleazy, foreboding world of winos, derelicts and drifters in lower Manhattan, two young runaways—eighteen-year-old Fred (Mike Lackey) and his younger brother, Kevin (Mark Sferrazza)—live in a tire hut in the back of an auto wrecking yard. Life is hard, but the most lethal threat to the boys is the mysterious case of Tenafly Viper wine in Ed’s liquor store window. The stuff is forty years old… and it’s gone bad. REAL bad! Anyone who drinks it melts in seconds—and it’s only a dollar a bottle!
