Street Trash

I last saw this flick about a decade ago while managing that crappy video store, and the only thing I really remember was that it was super gory and has a scene where some derelicts played a comical game of football with some poor bum's severed penis. It was just released on DVD in a remastered 2-disc special edition, so I picked it up for shits and giggles. It has no plot to speak of and basically follows a small group of homeless winos who live in a large junkyard and harass people and such. Also a local liquor store owner discovers a box of 20 year old booze in his basement and decides to sell it to the bums, but he doesn't know that it melts you from the inside out if you drink it. There's plenty of cool gross out moments, nothing too gory since whenever some poor schlub bites it they bleed every color other than red. Two really nasty bits involve a fat dude exploding violently and one guy taking a burst nitrous tank to the face. It does feature some subversive humor, social commentary and off-the-wall humor (the aforementioned cockball scene), but most of the time it's pretty uneventful and slow moving. Good to watch if you're drunk. LOL!

Oh ya... Bryan Singer worked as a grip on this flick.
