MELTING MOVIES #2

Ah, I knew I had this lying around the house somewhere...



The tag-line below the title reads: "It melts".

And on the back it says: "The Ultimate Melt Movie!" and "If you've never seen a Melt Movie before, then be prepared!"

Tune!

'it's...THE FINAL MELTDOWN!!!
du du du duuuuu...'

how cool would it be if, in addition to all that, Melt Banana provided the soundtrack for this??

50.000 two-second noise/screechfest snippets in one neatly packaged, subscriber-only, real horrorshow bloodsmeared, chicken-shaped CD-box!!

(-with overpraising, pretentious-cum-'intellectual' liner notes by boyd rice or tarantino some similarly annoying tosser)
- fanboy galore!!
< drowns in pool of own blood >
< comes gargling back to the surface with giant rubber chicken raised aloft, then melts >

rrraaahhhhhhhhhhh....

Yep, sign me up for the six-DVD box-set. I Loooooove Melt_Banana...

Did I ever post the interview I did with them? Can't remember...

Apparently, Lloyd Kaufmann of Troma really hates "Street Trash", probably because it out-Tromas Troma, so maybe he should do the sleeve-notes!

'Til then, my children, praise the Lord and pass me that bottle of Viper...

I should have guessed that someone of your obvious good taste and refinement would have a soft spot for Street Trash. That film is one of my all time favourites. I remember stumbling across it in the video section of my local off-licence in Kingston-upon-Thames back in the eighties and being immediately seduced by the cover. Upon taking it home, I just couldn't believe that it hadn't been banned when relatively innocuous films like The Evil Dead had been. There's was supposed to be a special edition coming out on DVD, but I don't thnk that it ever happened which is a shame because it's really dificult to get your hands on these days.

Hahaha...ditto: John...why am I not surprised you're a fan too! :-)

When Chris and I were on honeymoon in Canada a few years back, we wound up in Toronto, (by coincidence) just missing the FantAsia film fest. by a coupla days. It was an astonishing bill...a week of the best Martial Arts, Asian, Horror, Heroic Bloodshed, Exploitation films, etc with world premieres of stuff that went on to be recognised as classics.

One of the nights they had a special (rare) cinema screening of "Street Trash" with an intro/talk/Q&A session with director Jim Muro. How cool would that have been to have seen that on the big screen on yr honeymoon?! If I'd know FantAsia had been on, I woulda got married a week earlier!

But, yeah, like you said: an absolute classic. I'm still looking for a DVD copy to replace my battered old VHS...lemme know, people, if you spot one out there on the web...
