A lazy-ass liquor store owner (M. D'Jango Krunch) finds a crate of liquor bottles of unknown origin in his basement and decides to sell it to the local bums for a buck each to make some easy money. What he doesn't know (and I doubt he'd care) is that the content makes its consumers melt ...

Fred (Mick Lackey) is a bum with a heart of gold (but not always the highest morals) who is one of the first to buy (and steal) a few bottles of the toxic liquor, but he's never able to hold onto a bottle long enough to actually try it. Eventually, people start to die on the scrap yard he and his kid brother (Mark Sferrazza) live in ...

Even apart from that, it doesn't take Fred long to get in trouble after he nails the moll of a mobster (Tony Darrow), and she's later gangraped and killed by the other inhabitants of the scrap yard. But he also challenges the authority of Bronson (Vic Noto), a sociopathic and quite violent Vietnam veteran who claims leadership of the scrap yard, and makes his way on both the black list of the scrap yard owner and a cop (Bill Cephil) who investigates the death of the mobster's moll ...

Eventually, and with lots of shoot-outs, fistfights and quite a bit of the human-melting liquor, all of Fred's problems evaporate though - and violently so ...

 

Street Trash, though nowadays regarded a cult item by many, is by no means a brilliant film: Basically it's a bit too weak, unmotivated and convoluted on a story level, the characters are either flat or outright caricatures, and much of the humour is too blunt to actually be funny. But at the same time aesthetically it's a wonderful portrait of the underbelly of New York City, the crudeness of the violent bits is actually quite endearing, and however blunt the humour might be, it does come across after a few beers (or substances with comparable effects).

In a few words, no, not a masterpiece by any standards, but a fun nostalgic party flick at least.
