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.

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.
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
