...We just cut up our girlfriend with a chainsaw. Does that sound "fine"?

I'm slammin' down yet another Enzo G. Castellari (Inglorious Bastards, Great White) directed feature. Why? Cause he's guaranteed to deliver the finest quality Italian trash cinema known to man.
Right next to Bruno Mattei and Antonio Margheriti, of course.

In a post-apocalyptic New York City, a policeman infiltrates the Bronx, which has become a battleground for several murderous street gangs. My homeboy, Fred Williamson, is in the pic along with Vic Morrow. Two classic actors in my humble opinion. Vic was the actor that died in a helicopter accident on the set of Twilight Zone: The Movie. Which happened right after he shot this flick. If John Carpenter's Escape From New York and Walter Hill's The Warriors fucked and had a baby that baby would be The Bronx Warriors. The dialogue is horrendous, the lead character's name is Trash and the cheesy 80's hair-dos make this flick a winner.
Top all this off with a good amount of gore added to the action sequences...what more can I say. Nothing. Here's the original theatrical trailer.

There was a really good transfer released on DVD of this recently.

I love the tagline: "A Heavy Metal Journey Into An Urban Hell Where Everything Was Done Wrong!" & the sequel's titles like "Escape From The Bronx" & "Escape 2000".

One of the best parts is right in the beginning where the leader shoots down a helicopter with a HANDgun!

Seriously one of Castellari's best.

The template is generated by freakin' Tommy P.
The best in exploitation cinema from kung-fu to horror to afrocentric. 70's style. Ya' stupid muthafucka!
