Yawn, well this is a Troma style film in many ways, it's beyond cheap, the acting is abysmal and the affects are very lame but the film is overloaded with them. The plot is about some Viper alcohol that was discovered in a basement, that is being sold for a dollar a bottle. Hobos buy it of course and soon they find themselves melting or exploding oozing different colored goo and making a big mess everywhere. Some of the Hobos that have not ingested the alcohol are of course pitted against the mutants or what have you. There truly isn't much of a plot but be prepared for several pointless and boring scenes to fill the time between the ridiculous effects. I really couldn't wait for it to be over which indicated to me that I really do need more than goo to make a film entertaining. Perhaps when I was a much younger this might have been more appealing, as it was it really was trash, I suppose they can't be sued for false advertising?
