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's 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.

A delicious explosion of bad taste, 80's style. If you like "The Stuff" or some of John Carpenter's early movies, you'll like this. Ridiculous, asinine, and sublime.
