Join FilmBar and local podcast Cult Film in Review as they host a screening of one of the most irreverent, comical, and unapologetically tasteless films of the 1980s, Street Trash!
Like many melt movies of the 80s, Street Trash basks in a slimy mixture of offensive humor and outright absurdity. The film aimed to follow a genre of films that include Troma’s the Toxic Avenger and the works of Frank Henenlotter and bring it new gut-busting, grotesque heights.
Street Trash was written by Diary of the Dead’s Roy Frumkes who would later admit, “I wrote it to democratically offend every group on the planet…” And offend he did — right into the ranks of cult film history!
The film follows two homeless brothers who are terrorized daily by a deranged Vietnam vet named Bronson who has declared himself the King of the Junkyard. Meanwhile, members of the local homeless population are being turned into steaming puddles of goo by a 60-year-old cheap wine called Tenafly Viper.
After the film, stay for a live show from Cody Everett, Kyle Smith, Chris Wilembrecht, and Mike Sallustio of Cult Film in Review as they discuss this crass cult classic. Audience interaction is encouraged!
