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. Written by Jonah Falcon <jonahnynla@mindspring.com>

User Reviews

Great Italian low-budget fun.
15 February 2005 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Ten years after "1990:The Bronx Warriors" life is still a pure hell for the Bronx warrior street gangs.A sinister Manhattan Corporation with plans for the region sends in death squads named 'The Disinfestors' to eliminate the remaining inhabitants,and only the man called Trash can stop them.Mark Gregory is back as Trash in this cult follow-up to "1990:The Bronx Warriors".This is surely very fast-paced and violent flick with tons of action.Of all the early 80's post apocalypse movies,"Escape from the Bronx" looks like it has one of the higher budgets,mostly spent on spectacular flame-thrower effects and effective explosions.The acting is terrible,although it's always nice to see Lucio Fulci's regular Paolo Malco in the small role.The soundtrack by Francesco De Masi of "The New York Ripper" fame is also quite good.Check it out.6 out of 10.
