1990: The Bronx Warriors

Series: Wyrd War Presents!

Wyrd War roars back to the big screen with a rare 35mm presentation of 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!
