Fango got the first details on the specs for Synapse Films’ two-DVD set of the cult gorefest STREET TRASH, along with the cover art. Arriving September 26, the package will include an anamorphic 1.78:1 transfer from the original camera negative with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and original 2.0 mono audio tracks, plus the following extras:
• Two audio commentaries featuring producer Roy Frumkes and director James Muro
• The Meltdown Memoirs, an all-new two-hour documentary on the history and making of STREET TRASH
• Muro’s original 16mm short version of STREET TRASH
• The long-lost, never-before-seen STREET TRASH promotional teaser
• Behind-the-scenes still gallery
• Original theatrical trailer
The documentary is further described thusly: “Over four years in production, Roy Frumkes’ The Meltdown Memoirs is more than a ‘making of’ documentary; rather, it is an intensely personal, expansive impression of the STREET TRASH years, and what preceded and followed them. Bolstered by a haunting score, dozens of interviews with cast, crew and other genre figures and rare footage detailing the cult classic’s evolution, this is a uniquely eccentric, sometimes shocking experience from the creator of DOCUMENT OF THE DEAD. Features an interview with director Bryan Singer [SUPERMAN RETURNS and X-MEN, and a PA on STREET TRASH], an appearance by the New York ‘subway vigilante’ Bernard Goetz and—almost—the entire cast of STREET TRASH!”
Fango got a sneak peek at Meltdown Memoirs and can attest that is indeed one of the most revelatory and surprising documentaries on the world of independent horror filmmaking ever produced. Retail price for the set will be $29.95.
