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.

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
[Clark's attempt to escape ends with him staring down the barrel of Strike's shotgun
You try that again and you'll look like a tea strainer.
A hostage is no good dead. I must be worth something, if they're going through all that much fuss topside.
Then you know who to root for, right mister fucking Clark? Cause if we make it, so do you.
For its original UK cinema release the BBFC cut 11 secs of Strike bloodily bashing a Disinfestor's face with a shotgun butt, an exploding chest during the scene with the primed hostages, and shots of a tramp on fire. The cuts were restored for the 2003 Vipco DVD. See more
