Available May 16th: Walter Hill's STREETS OF FIRE gets the royal treatment from Shout Select!


A friend of mine discovered STREETS OF FIRE about a decade ago and foisted it upon me. While I dug parts of it, overall I wasn't a huge fan. However, now that its gotten some major love from Shout Select, I'm ready to give this "Rock N' Roll Fable" another shot.

Synopsis: Amid a brooding rock & roll landscape, the Bombers motorcycle gang, led by the vicious Raven Shaddock (Willem Dafoe, BOONDOCK SAINTS, JOHN WICK), kidnap diva Ellen Aim (Diane Lane, MAN OF STEEL). Her hope for rescue lies with unlikely heroes: soldier of fortune Tom Cody (Michael Paré, BAD MOON) and his sidekick, the two-fisted beer-guzzling McCoy (Amy Madigan, THE DARK HALF). Joined by Ellen's manager, Billy Fish (Rick Moranis, GHOSTBUSTERS), the trio plunges headfirst into a world of rain-splattered streets, hot cars, and deadly assassins.

This cult favorite features a razor-sharp cast and original songs written by Jim Steinman, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty and Ry Cooder and performed by The Blasters and The Fixx. Directed by cult filmmaker Walter Hill (THE WARRIORS, SOUTHERN COMFORT, 48 HRS.), STREETS OF FIRE is a rock & roll shotgun blast to the senses!
