STREET TRASH (1987)
… In the sleazy, foreboding world of winos, derelicts and drifters in pre-gentrified Brooklyn, two young runaways live in a tire hut in the back of a vast auto wrecking yard. The most lethal threat to the boys is the case of Tenafly Viper in Ed’s liquor store window. 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!!
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.
This special 35mm presentation will be preceded by a super-rare screening of the completely unavailable SWIRLEE (2000), featuring the nightmarish misadventures of Mr. Softee, the man with an ice cream cone head, starring David Caruso.
DVD and Poster giveaways! Roy Frumkes & Rocco Simonelli in person for Q&A!
