'Street Trash' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Wed Apr 3, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The cult classic horror comedy will be having a messy meltdown on Blu-ray in June. 

In an early announcement to retailers, Synapse Films is bringing 'Street Trash' to Blu-ray. The tentative release date is set for June 11.

In the sleazy, foreboding world of winos, derelicts and drifters in lower Manhattan, two young runaways – eighteen-year-old Fred (Mike Lackey) and his younger brother, Kevin (Mark Sferrazza) – live in a tire hut in the back of an auto wrecking yard. Life is hard, but the most lethal threat to the boys is the mysterious case of “Tenafly Viper” wine in Ed’s liquor store window. The stuff is forty years old… and it’s gone bad. REAL bad! Anyone who drinks it melts in seconds, and it’s only a dollar a bottle!

The suggested list price for the Blu-ray has yet to be revealed, but the disc will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Two Audio Commentaries Featuring Producer Roy Frumkes and Director James Muro; The Meltdown Memoirs – Feature Length Documentary on the History and Making of 'Street Trash'; The Original 'Street Trash' 16mm Short Film That Inspired the Movie; The Original 'Street Trash' Promotional Teaser; Original Theatrical Trailer; Jane Arakawa Video Interview and Deleted Scenes; and the option to Create Your Own Bottle of "Tenafly Viper" Wine with the Enclosed Label Sticker.
