A vicious corporation tries to kill and starve the last remaining habitants of the Bronx in order to build their own high-rise developments. A lone long-haired, hot-tempered warrior, Trash, is his only obstacle. Trash, a psychopathic bomb-maker and his equally psychopathic preschool son and an annoying activist help him out by kidnapping "the President" (of the corporation), a Richard Dreyfuss look-alike. Henry Silva plays another psychopath, this one on the side of the corporations. A favorite movie of Mystery Science Theater 3000 series.

Did You Know?
When the two Disinfestors are about to flame Trash's mum look to the right of the screen and you will see a crew member visible for about 3 seconds (only visible on the widescreen British Vipco 2004 DVD release). See more
[about the kidnapping plan
Hey wait a minute, wait a minute, what's in it for me?
That's simple. If they want their president back, they have to put things back the way the were.
The Bronx will be back in the hands of the gangs, which means you'll go back to being the number one man for all the big robberies. Instead of hiding out down here, scratching your balls.
Hah! I like scratching my balls.
The British version released by Entertainment In Video is missing a few scenes due to censorship, most notably some of the "hostages rigged with bombs" sequence (originally a hostage deliberately ran at a Disinfestor so the bomb goes off in his face) and Strike hitting a Disinfestor in the helmet visor with his shotgun butt causing his face to turn to red mush. The American Media entertainment NTSC video version is HEAVILY edited and missing some segments that completely change the plot of the film. In this version Vice President survives by simply driving out of the Bronx. Toblerone, Blonde Female Rebel and Big Little Man don't die and the scene where Trash takes on 3 disinfestors armed only with a crash helmet is gone. See more
