Get off the Glittering Gulch and head east for a walkabout of ol’ WillyB…
When the owner of a liquor store starts selling 60 year old bad/cheap wine to the local hobos, they literally start melting to death. An overzealous cop tries to get to the bottom of all these strange deaths while also dealing with a deranged Vietnam vet. Street Trash is the kind of ridiculous, gross-out midnight fair you can enjoy regardless of where you live, but the film holds a special place in our hearts here at Nitehawk because much of it was filmed right up the road in Greenpoint in mid-1980’s, capturing the neighborhood before the wave of cultural and economic changes swept through the neighborhood, taking much of Street Trash’s trash with it.
