This cult classic B-movie was shot throughout the streets of Greenpoint and Williamsburg, Brooklyn in the 80’s. How fitting that a Williamsburg movie theater, Nitehawk Cinema would show it on the big screen for their midnight movie this weekend.
Here’s a description of the film from the Nitehawk Cinema website:
“Not a revenge movie per se but a true delight nonetheless. Shot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn back in the 80s this cult classic has aged like a fine wine. Speaking of wine when a liquor store owner finds a case of “Viper” in his cellar, he decides to sell it to the local hobos at one dollar a bottle, unaware of its true properties. The drinks causes its consumers to melt, very messily. Two homeless lads find themselves up against the effects of the toxic brew, as well as going head to head with “Bronson” a Vietnam vet with sociopathic tendencies, and the owner of the junkyard they live in.”
Nitehawk Cinema also did something pretty fuckin’ awesome on their blog, taking stills from the movie, finding the location and photographing what it looks like today. We posted a couple of those shots below.
