1990: The Bronx Warriors
Series: Wyrd War Presents!
Wyrd War roars back to the big screen with a rare
Enzo Castellari's post-apocalyptic masterpiece 1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS
(1982). Starring Fred Williamson, George Eastman, Vic Morrow, members of
the Lower East Side chapter of the Hells Angels and the mysterious
Marco Di Gregorio, who boasts one of the most uncannily erect postures
ever witnessed on film, the true star of this distinctly Italian
dystopian future might be the real life urban wasteland of pre-Giuliani
New York City. Shot on location in Rome and the Bronx at the height of
"white flight," landlord abandonment, widespread arson, crime and
crippling poverty, Castellari's highly stylized mash-up of THE WARRIORS
and ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK offers a sleazy glimpse into an America we may
never see again. Come for the random five minute jazz drum solo on the
banks of the East River...stay for the cabaret inspired tap dancing gang
and The Hammer's tiger skin rug!
