(No reviews yet)

Downtown No Wave filmmaker Amos Poe's 1981 film Subway Riders finally gets to see the light of day on DVD. This detective drama was shot on location in New York City and chronicles the bloody wake of terror left by a murderous street saxophone player who hides out on the subway. The bizarre string of murders is investigated by a hard-bitten detective. Along the way he meets assorted New Wave scumbags. The mood of the film is heightened by an avant garde musical score. The film stars Robbie Coltrane (Harry Potter series), Cookie Mueller (Pink Flamingos), Susan Tyrrell (Cry Baby, Forbidden Zone) and John Lurie (Down by Law).
