Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The horror-video boom of the 1980s unleashed many a gruesome spectacle on fans during that time, but few were as wild or relentless as Street Trash. It's definitely not a film for the sensitive; the plot and the characters are equally grimy, there's an accent on bizarre, gory spectacle, and the film has a seriously dark sense of humor topics like rape, castration, and necrophilia are played for laughs. That said, anyone with a taste for cinema's wild side might enjoy Street Trash because it delivers the trashy goods and does so with a surprisingly artful touch. Roy Frumkes' script offers a surprisingly complex ensemble narrative that is packed with raunchy, endlessly quotable dialogue. Better yet, director Jim Muro frames the action with a dazzling eye for color and motion; he and cinematographer David Sperling make brilliant use of the steadycam to give the film a kinetic visual pulse. Street Trash is also unusually well-acted for a low-budget indie-horror effort. Everybody gives solid, charismatic performances, but the true scene-stealers are Troma film vet R.L. Ryan as a sleazy auto-junkyard owner and Tony Darrow and James Lorinz as a mobster/doorman duo whose bickering is laugh-out-loud funny. The final hook is the special effects; the "wino meltdown" scenes are some of the most colorful and inventive gore spectacles ever captured on film. In short, Street Trash is not for all tastes, but it will reward the brave viewer with an unforgettable walk on horror's wild side.
