Street Trash

1987 / 91m - USA
Comedy, Horror
Street Trash poster

Cult on delivery. If you don't have a decent budget, nor the access to proper talent, you can always try to be as zany and grotesque as possible and sell your film as cult. At its best, Street Trash is quite daft and funny, but those moments are quite rare, what lies in between isn't nearly as good.

There isn't much in the way of a plot. The film follows several men living on a trash site. The leader is a true tyrant and rules the place with an iron fist. Meanwhile, a nasty drink is spreading among the homeless drunks. Take one sip and you melt away completely. In this crazy world, Fred and his little brother try to survive.

The gore is nice and pretty much every character is outrageous and over-the-top. That leads to some very funny scenes, but those are mostly at the start and end of the film. In between there are rather long lulls where nothing interesting happens. Cult fans are sure to have a lot of fun with this, I just wish it was a bit better made.
