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 a vast auto wrecking yard. Fred is burnt-out by the forces that destroyed his family life, whereas Kevin, having missed much of their childhood trauma, yearns to get back into society and lead a normal life. The most lethal threat to the boys is the case of Tenafly Viper in Ed?s liquor store window. Ed found the cheapo wine behind a wall in his basement. The stuff?s forty years old, and it?s gone real bad. Anyone who drinks it melts within seconds? and it?s only a dollar a bottle!!
The bums are lining up for their deaths like moths at a flame, and Fred standing right there amongst them. STREET TRASH is the subversive cult classic horror-comedy that rode the last wave of super-gore in the late ?80s before the curtain fell on such outrageous material and we entered an era of safe, ?R? rated horror flicks and endless, unoriginal remakes.
