Street Trash has topped the special-edition want list of many a horror/cult fan for years. Thankfully, Synapse Films has stepped up to the plate and created an excellent two-disc set that is likely to dazzle the film's fans. First up is a fantastic high-definition transfer of the film; it is letterboxed with anamorphic enhancement and captures the film's look with dazzling clarity and color. In terms of audio, fans are treated to the original Dolby 2.0 mono soundtrack and a new 5.1 stereo remix. Both sound great, but the 5.1 mix really shows off the intricacies of the film's unique sound design. Also included on the first disc are a theatrical trailer and two audio commentary tracks, one by writer/producer Roy Frumkes and the other by director Jim Muro. These tracks compliment each other nicely, with Frumkes giving a broad-based view of the production and how the script evolved while Muro breaks down the film from a technical perspective. The second disc is devoted entirely to extras, the centerpiece being a new, two-hour-plus documentary on Street Trash, entitled "The Meltdown Memoirs." It's an excellent piece that was orchestrated and narrated by Frumkes, and it covers the film's history in exhaustive detail, bringing back many of the cast members and key crew people to offer an array of fascinating, often hilarious anecdotes. Also included on disc two is the original 16 mm student-film version of Street Trash by Muro that inspired the feature and a short promotional trailer used to promote the film. The second disc is capped with an annotated behind-the-scenes image gallery. All in all, this is an impressive, comprehensive special edition that offers the ultimate tribute to Street Trash's bizarre appeal.

    Synopsis


    Street Trash
    This shocker will most likely appeal to fans of pitch-black beyond-bad-taste comedy. Others may find it highly offensive and gory as it chronicles the fate of homeless Brooklyn winos when they get into some tainted wine and begin melting into slimy puddles of human goo. The wine, called "Tenafly Viper," is being sold by the owner of a liquor store who found it lying around in his basement and sells it to the bums for a buck. It is later revealed that the wine was deliberately spiked by the government. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

      I remember the first time I saw , Street Trash, I could not stop laughing. This is one of those midnight movies that has grindhouse cinema all over it. The gore and special effects are so funny from the melting into the toilet til the classic ending when the junkyard villian gets his top part of body blown apart by a torpedo missile object . His finale , one last cheap look up a chicks dress is histerical. The one last thought and morale of the movie is never drink cheap outdated booze. It just kills. Get this movie if you like your horror super gory and funny.

      This is a different kind of horror movie in which people that drink this tainted wine start to disintegrate and explode. I know many people don't like this kind of a movie but I saw it as a refreshing new change in a horror movie and good special effects even though I can't say that the acting was great. You might get a kick out of it if you like this type of movie.

      Fun movie that is very colorful and the colors pop, the clarity of the Blu ray is awesome and spot on! The sticker to turn any bottle into the Tenafly is pretty small, so that was a disappointment but I didn't buy the movie for that.

      Really over-the-top '80s gorefest that maybe even has a little bit to say about the plight of the homeless and downtrodden? Don't worry, the message doesn't get in the way of the mayhem. Fun if you have a strong stomach.
