"Cataclysmically gross cult comedy."
5 stars

This very gross, mean-spirited and ugly horror-comedy has much to recommend it.

If you get prickly over politically incorrect depictions of the homeless, though, youd better skip it. The plot, such as it is, concerns a lethal, mysterious wine called Viper that melts the Brooklyn bums who drink it.

Characters include a psychotic Vietnam vet (Vic Noto) who rules a junkyard, his scuzzy kept woman (Nicole Potter), two relatively sympathetic young runaways (Mike Lackey and Mark Sferrazza), a repulsive necrophiliac (R.L. Ryan), the funny Mutt-and-Jeff team of Tony Darrow (later in GoodFellas) as a Mafioso and James Lorinz (Frankenhooker) as a doorman, and a brutal cop (Bill Chepil) who beats up a punk and vomits on said punks head.

Most of the cast gets melted in elaborate, truly disgusting special-effects sequences. Young director Jim Muro only twenty when he started filming this has the courage of whatever unclassifiable convictions he has.

Classic line: I cant kiss your prick! Its dribbling down the stairs!
