Though he now directs prestige television programs, Muro will likely never top his first and only feature, Street Trash, a surreal shocker set largely in a New York garbage dump. It’s every bit as cocksure in style and tone as Sam Raimi’s original Evil Dead and Peter Jackson’s early pukefests, so why isn’t Muro helming Oscar winners? More importantly, why hasn’t he pumped out a sequel or two to his original masterpiece? Street Trash is as handsome and accomplished as low-budget gore fests get.
