From Amazon.co.uk

Sure, Street Trash has a convoluted, ridiculous plot, but it also features bums who melt into rainbow sludge upon drinking a fermented relative of Thunderbird, Tenafly Viper. In this '80s B-movie akin to The Toxic Avenger or C.H.U.D., Fred (Mike Lackey) is the main homeless guy who distributes Viper he's lifted from the local liquor store. Once he discovers the alcohol's lethal potential, he wields it as a weapon, eventually fighting head criminal, Bronson, a psycho-killer Vietnam vet who carries a human femur bone handle knife. Side plots, such as one involving a begrudging policeman who seeks to clean up the Street Trash community housed in a junkyard, or the one featuring Wendy, the hot girl who guards runaways from the junkyard's fat, mean owner, are beside the point. Watch Street Trash for its infamous penis scene, in which a member is chopped off and tossed around in a game of keep away, or watch the film to see a man melt down into a blue pile as he's flushed down a toilet bowl. Street Trash's gore isn't so disturbing as it is comic, as are the bums' New Romantic costumes similar to Dexy's Midnight Runners in the video for their '80s hit, "Come On Eileen." Applaud Street Trash for its gaudy, horrendous splendor. Notably, this re-release contains the original Super-8 short of the film, featuring even more homemade special effects and low-grade humor.--Trinie Dalton

Street trash was without a doubt one of the finer movie highlights of my childhood. It was full of bad language and some multi-colour melting special effects when some of the characters in the film melt after drinking a deadly bottle of Viper a mysterious drink found behind a wall in an off license!

I thought this movie was an 80's classic and it made me remember the first time I watched it with my Brother and my Gran, happy days. This film has got it all, melting hobos, crazy Vietnam Veteran, the catch a penis game, and violence galore.

I have waited a long time to own this awesome film, but I never imagined that when the day came for it to be re-released, it would be given this sort of treatment! As with other recent Arrow releases, you get a nifty white box, a flip-cover (new art and original cover), a poster and an interview booklet.

The film is pretty much in the mid-80s Troma vein, though I rate it higher than any Troma film as the comedy is less spoof and the gore and acting is more accomplished. There are real characters in this film; notably the vietnam-vet king of the junkyard and the hard as nails detective assigned to the melting-tramps case and it is performances like these which really push the film into classic status.

Madness all round; the story concerns a batch of mysterious and highly toxic liquor being discovered in the basement of an off-licence which the owner decides to sell for $1 a bottle. Of course, this appeals to the local down-and-out community, resulting in a spate of gruesome deaths. This is just the foundation for the real plot (I say plot, but you know...) to be built upon, one which involves goodies, baddies and sleazeballs trying to operate alongside each other. Of course, it is all in the worst possible taste and I heartily recommend this specific version to anyone that enjoys this particular sub-genre.

This is probably one of the top 10 splatter movies of the 80's as there is so many cool blood and gore effects and crazy oozing splatter moments to satisfy any fan of this horror genre, this movie is a little more unusual in that there's not much of a storyline, its basically about a couple of homeless brothers that live in an auto wrecking yard, life is hard as they try to survive each day stealing to eat and drink and fighting and murdering among fellow homeless etc, and if things were not bad enough a local off-licence owner finds a really old batch of wine hidden behind a panel in the basement of the shop called viper, its very old and very bad, so bad anyone that drinks it becomes a melting blob of gore! It has a good sense of humour too and is a very stand alone and original 80's movie that's really worth adding to the collection for sure, you cant knock it for cult classic bloody gory splatter practical effects they are top notch all the way, amusing cast, good soundtrack, for a low budget movie at the time its a gem by todays standards!!

Blu-ray looks fantastic in HD (Synapse films import)
Tons of great special features including a 2hr documentary, 2 commentaries, original short film, deleted scenes, trailers and more!!
Region Free ABC, 102-mins, 1987.
Comes with a free bonus Viper wine bottle sticker.

When a liquor store owner finds a case of "Viper" in his cellar, he decides to sell it to the local hobos at one dollar a bottle, unaware of its true properties.

The drinks causes its consumers to melt, very messily.

Two homeless lads find themselves up against the effects of the toxic brew, as well as going head to head with Bronson, a Vietnam vet with sociopath tendencies, and the owner of the junkyard they live in....

The thing is with this film is that although it's got a huge cult following, and does feature some really cool money shots, some of the sub-plots are just a little too bizarre to make any sense in a film like this.

Take the Duran sub-plot. Was it really necessary to have him sing a song at the end? I mean it's funny, but his character really didn't need such an extended role, and it ruined the flow of the film.

I know it's cheaply made, but some of the acting is hideous, and the inclusion of Bronsons Vietnam dreams look too cheap.

Other than that, it's a fun film, effects are amazing, especially the first melt scene, and Bronsons death. It's funny, with some inventive scenes, and it's really a shame that a lot of the cast and crew only did this.

Worth catching if you can.

For what it is, Street Trash is five stars all the way. Exploitation fans will get ALL their money's worth here. Grisly slimy deaths, strange characters, necrophilia, comedy, even a flying genital. Street Trash comes right from the streets of grimy dirty sleazy New York City in the 80s, and happily will invade your DVD machine with joy.

The movie is about drunks and homeless people who stumble on a new cheap drink for a buck. Only there's a catch.... Once you sip the drink you melt away in a painstaking kind of way. As a subplot we have a man who thinks he car lot is Vietnam, and a cop beating up anyone who gets in his way in search of a missing woman.

It's bizarre at times disgusting at times hilarious, but Street Trash entertains big time. The doc included on disc 2 is incredible. We're talking 2 hours worth of interviews. One of the best docs Arrow has ever put together.

A great film from yesteryear.
