Title: Street Trash
Post by: on September 20, 1999, 01:56:30 PM
     At last!  Street Trash gets some recognition for the piece of crap that it is!!  While watching this film my friends and I chanted "DRINK THE VIPER!  DRINK THE VIPER!!"  The Viper Deaths are the only redeeming qualities to this film; I think that the fat guy exploding is the best, followed by the guy melting into the crapper.

I absolutely hate this film.  The writer, Roy Frumkes (he's also businessman who explodes) and the guy who plays Ed both taught at my college.  The guy who plays Ed (his real name is Gary Cooper, no kidding) is one of the most vile people I have ever met.

Street Trash is one of the greatest exploitation films of all time, one of the last great films of the 80's before the horror genre degenerated completely into endless Friday the 13th sequels and suchlike.  No-One has mentioned the song over the final credits though! Oh jesus! In one of the most surreal moments in sleaze cinema history the mafia don guy sings over the final credits as he melts away, and the lyrics to the song are just hilarious!  this film mixes gore, slapstick and horror in a way that predates Peter Jackson in every way!  The director went on to do the cinematography for the Doors movie (note the continuous use of steadicam in that movie AND this as a link between the two).  The Australian video release is the most complete with a close up shot during the catsration scene which isnt present in either the (deleted) US release or the (recently rereleased in a butchered form) UK release.  Street Trash.  Yes!

This movie rocks. My friend who hated it said "Man,it's like the guy who wrote this didn't know what he wanted. What it's like being a bum,being a crazed Vietnam vet,a cop who pukes on people,or a drink that melts you into goo. So he put all four in it at once." He then goes on to say how that sucks,but you know how much it doesn't. Dong keepaway scene is priceless,and even the cut Blockbuster version at least shows the game. If you're a big WWF fan,you might recognize the fat bald junkyard owner as Bastion Booger, who wore some sort of dirty gauze strap outfit I think the chick from 5th Element wore...but only cleaner,and less fat and bald. Good to see that even obscure pro wrestlers can find work in movies like Street Trash. No need to worry,Macho Man! Oooooh yeah-yah!

Uh, pretty boring film, don't ya think ? I mean, between the melting scenes and the cut-penis chase, there's really nothing to enjoy, is it ? Bad acting, boring situations, boring direction, Street Trash it is !

This movie actually contains one of the most horrifying and tasteless things I've ever seen: the gang rape of the drunk woman by all the bums in the junkyard.  That completely turned me off to any fine points this movie might have had.  Delete that segment, have Fred and his brother strike it rich, and then move the "big fight" between Bronson and the cop to the end, then have the cop win,shove Bronson into a car crusher, and turn it on.  Bronson's squishing, spewing corpse would be the perfect climax to this film.  Those modifications would have made this into a great little movie.

As entertainment, Street Trash succeeds only mildly.  In between the obvious and exagerreated characters melting, and of course, THAT penis decapitation scene, the acting, direction and pretty much everything without gore nearby it is downright boring.  I am well aware that most people in the UK haven't seen it, as I suspect a lot of people everywhere else on the planet haven't either.  The UK version (amazingly) is not that badly cut.  Neither is the US one.  But, i have a suggestion:  Why don't we do our own cut and slice all the bad bits out?  What, essentially, we would end up with is about 15 minutes of gore, humour and penis throwing all in one go.  

Street Trash is the porno equivalent of the splatter genre; we don't want a story... we don't care about the direction, acting or the dialogue, hell, we don't even care about the characters.  We only want to see the characters f**king.  Or, in Street Trash's case, we only want to see the characters f**king die.

The Drex.

Stuff a movie full of the most offensive ideas you can think of and what do you get?  STREET TRASH.  I saw this at a downtown dive of a theater (the prostitutes used the balconey for their business transactions, yech) and was pretty impressed overall.   A real New York movie, and not one for the faint hearted.  I laugh and squirm each time I see it.  Anybody out there know if the end title song is available on tape or CD?  

It should also be noted that Mr. Mob-turned-Blob plays a restaurant owner/manager in the mobster classic Goodfellas.

Without a doubt, Street Trash had the best dialogue I'd ever heard. Yes, I like the eFfects, the characters, locations, etc. But where Frumke really triumphed was in the dialogue. Bronson's ramblings are the funniest but I thought all the lines were pretty entertaining. Frumke also did the opening scene for Doctor Butcher, MD.

Congratulation for your good taste.

I saw this movies many years ago, and I wil remember it for the rest of my life.  This is something you can't forget, just like the crash of Challenger, or the election of W. Bush.  

I'll let you notice that the french title for this movie is "Corps  a vidange", that means something like: trash or garbage body.

This film is pretty lame overall. It's hard to tell which character in the weak script you should feel for, THEY'RE ALL SUCH a***oleS! Especially to eachother. Thye are all rotten, filthy, conniving pricks. Anyways it seems the only good qualities are the gore, and even that isn't done worth a s**t, (like using paint for melting flesh-ever heard of latex?). I once knew a guy who traded the cult classic CARNIVAL OF SOULS with me for Street Trash. Man did he get ripped off! If all you B-Carnisours wanna check out some gore films that are done well check out MANIAC-a sicko phsycho classic with FX done by the man TOM SAVINI, and any other film done by him rule: DAWN OF THE DEAD, DAY OF THE DEAD, DEATH DREAM.
other well done gore films: Friday the 13th 1 & 2, BURNING MOON (German), THE Street Fighter (Japan-a personnal fave).

Whew, what a stinker. Morally repugnant without the guts (or the imagination) to really try to be revolting. When I say that you can see every penny of the budget right up there on the screen, it's definitely NOT a compliment. The cop beating up the guy then puking on him was the only good thing about this movie. "The first 'melt' movie" eh? Yes, and the last, talk about your one-trick pony. I'll go with the 15-minute edit idea, that's the only way this could hold my attention and even then I wouldn't cross the street to watch it again. Give me 'Nekromantik' any day.

My friends and I have always sought out and loved really crappy/out there/ unusual movies, and Street Trash certainly didn't disapoint. We rented it out in about 1989 and just could not believe what we were watching.  One friend of mine actually bought a copy from HMV not long after for only 4.99.  I wish I had.  It's been too long since I saw this pile of crap.  But what a piece of crap!
Video shops just haven't been the same since the late eighties/early nineties - how many gems can you unearth at Blockbuster or anywhere else these days?
Small video shops with extensive back catalogues are very rare now - in Manchester, England at least.
Find this crap and love it - peace

This movie in another over the top flick with little plot and gore galore!  Hilarious moments make up this film from the toliet scene to the penis keep away game to the fat dude exploding, and so on.  How can people bad mouth this film is beyond me...

Typical .. the negaitive comments are so american it is repulsive.

Street trash has 1. Great costumes 2. Great locations 3. Apart from the Viper all of it could be true. 4. Great scripts.

However the thing that makes all these people who didn't like it say that is because the recording quailty is terrible ! - it could have been done with a VHS ! it is one of my favorite movies of all times an di had to travel 300 kilometers to find an ex rental copy. Best buy of my life.

I have watched this movie 100 + time and every time i find somthing new and the old jokes just get funnier ! - Bronsons ramblings ect.

Who remembers this.

What ? you think i got it easy !
I see how you could think that but i'll tell ya and then you'll know and you know what ? Your on your own pal !!

I saw this along time ago and no1 I know has ever heard of it. Its so hard tryin to tell them how funny it is,I give the film no justice. I remember the wanger bit,but the part which gets me is when that cop is gettin hassled and tells a women in responce. "How do I know you aint got a dick" GENIUS!!! oh yeah as for the puke.......

Not much to say about this movie except if you like Bums drinking an age old booze, then screaming as their insides
start to melt their outside, and then exploding in 360 degree's every way.
When I bought it I was just looking for an different kind of
gorefest, and believe me I found it. I bought this in a barin bin at a off the beaten path store in Ohio. It must
have been back in 1989. I think I paid $ 5.99 for it. And I
rather enjoyed it!. I just was going through my movies today
and decided to watch it again, I haven't watch it in years.
And it still has something different to it than some gore
movies today. I don't know what yet but, when I figure it out I will write back.

P.S. If that wasn't the worst of it, I actually found the
poster for it. It was last year in a video store that was
going out of business in a town about 25 miles away.He had
over 300 posters that he have for free that's right free.
He had them in a store room that he forgot about. Sound familar?

Lots of special effects but crap actors. This movie is watchable, but without the "penis-cut-off" this film is a piece of crap. So don't waste your time, or your money.

Post by: Jay on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
I saw this movie once. Then I rented it again so all my friends could see how bad it was. In the words of my friend: THIS IS THE WORST MOVIE I'VE EVER SEEN!!! Only the "Howling" serie was worser than this pure garbage...seriously. If you're going for this movie, make sure to have a lot ad I mean...A LOT of money to spend on coffee. I won't say more because I know I will say things that are not tolerated if I do.

Post by: Morgan Hoyle-Combs on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
This is most the plotless, grotesque, and stupidest movie. It had only a few scenes of melting people from drinking viper, I mean, if the liquor was the whole plot of the movie, they should've included more of what it was really about (not that I enjoyed it). But if you don't want to see people melting into toilets, having their penis severed and tossed around, having heads blown off by gas tanks...DON'T SEE THIS MOVIE!!!

Post by: Thom on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
I've seen this movie. And I'll have to agree with Morgan, it is very stupid. It might probably be bassed on Akira Kurosawa's 'Yojimbo' and 'Dodes'ka-den'.

My friends and i just happened to stumble upon this gem at our video store and rented without exactly knowing what it was all about.  This is by far one of my favorite b movies right now.  if your a fan of any troma movie or want to see some really wacky colorful melty gore  SEE THIS MOVIE!  Its also filled with tons of quotable quotes and terms, my favorite being "f**k you! give me a bottle of booze, heres my dollar, suck my dick!". just classic.  and a great name-calling term, "scum bastard".  just great!

When this movie was released as a VHS, my brother told me not to rent it, because it was way too awful to see. I love gore (and so does he usually), so just being told that, I rushed to rent it. Oof. Braindead crap indeed. Low budget pile of nonsense, with awful, awful actors. Made me feel I could start making movies, couldn't be worst than that.

A great B movie! Has some of the best gore I've ever seen, the fat guy exploding and the guy melting all over the street are my favorite deaths, besides the C02 tank decapitation. That was cool. I also got a laugh out of it (the keepaway d*ck scene in particular). Highly reccomended.

Y'know, if I hadn't have stumbled across this review I might have completely eradicated this celluloid turd of a film from my memory.  But it was not to be.  And like the visual allure of a disgusting train-wreck, I had no choice but to read on and relive possibly the worst movie ever.  I rented this suck job movie at a blockbuster in Florida in 1991 and thankfully haven't seen it anywhere since.  Its not that its mean spirited and hateful, its just, well, f**king disturbing on a unique level.  It manages to not have one stinking redeeming quality.  From melting jagoffs to homeless gangbangs and cock "keep away," I really don't know where to start on how ill this thing is.  I'm not even sure Troma would claim this tea-bagger.  Its like sitting through 90 minutes of Bumfights, but with no plot and somehow even worse acting.  Whoever invented this thing oughtta get Hoof and Mouth disease or some other God awful ailment.  Nuff said.

I saw this movie at my friend's. I thought the idea of melting from drinking Viper was a great idea. My favorite part was when Burt was confronted at the store. Over a good movie to watch if your bored or like bums melting.

STREET TRASH kills the competition, I read somewhere the director was only 20 y.o.  Most people that age cant even appreciate a movie this good.  Sure, the plot doesn't even matter, with the mob dudes and the door boy feeling tacked on, but this s**t is hilario0us.  The bums are the real stars anyway.  Wizzy especially is one of the weirdst funniest motherf**kers ever in cinema.

This movie is awesomely bad! Just bought the edition that has a two hour street trash memoirs second disc. I highly reccomend it. I actually love how this movie is all over the place. Besides the fact that the movie is hilarious, I was sucked into the world of the homeless, it was like looking at the world through their eyes! Awesome review!

I saw this movie when I was 12 years old.  The rape scene nearly horrified me into a coma.
I mostly remember the movie being boring and I would fast forward to the gore and dick tossing scene.
I JUST watched the movie's DVD release and I still feel the same.  However, the documentary footage is better than the actual movie.  ABSOLUTELY FASCINATING.  I can't believe that they made a movie for $500,000 and get most of the cast to work for free.  PLUS, the $500,000 was all funded by investors!

Me and my friends were laughing our asses off while watching this film.. That was an evening well spent! The scene with the homeless guy stealing things in the shop is priceless. As is the  'chopped-off-jimmy-hot-potato' scene. These scenes alone more than make up for the dull moments in the film. I'm smiling again typing this while I remember it all. Ahhh, great memories...

This movie is incredible, tasteless, immoral, unbelievable... In fact I'd like to ask those describing it as "boring" which planet they live on? Presumably one where it's normal to see people melting, screwing, vomiting or playing catch with a severed penis?
They don't make them like this any more. Provided you have a strong stomach, it's a very, very funny film. It is the essence of bad movie- terrible script, dire acting and beautifully nasty special effects. As I type this my girl friend is tutting at my sn****rs, even though we watched this film days ago.
To all those bored of sanitised, clean, tedious, shrink-wrapped tv and cinema I say watch this film! Just don't invite your parents. Unless you were raised by rabid maniacs, drunk on budget booze.
Now where was I? Shxt! I only have $1 left- still, the liquor store is open...
