The story behind the rise and fall of New York's 42nd Street. The cinemas, the films, the people, the crime and the rebirth of the block as "New 42nd Street" - this is the document of the world's most notorious movie strip.  With clips from many of these classic Grindhouse and Horror films that blazoned the marquees outside the theatres, and interviews with filmmakers like Joe Dante (Piranha, Gremlins), Troma's Lloyd Kaufmann (Toxic Avenger), William Lustig (Maniac, Vigilante), Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Frankenhooker), Debbie Rochon (Poltrygeist: Night Of The Chicken Dead), Lynn Lowry (The Crazies, Shivers), Sam Shermann (Dracula vs Frankenstein), porn star Veronica Hart and more.
