Once upon a time, there existed a sleazy haven for degenerates, junkies, prostitutes and thugs. That place was 42nd Street, the Deuce. In the 80s, the Deuce still clung to its unsavory origins. For better or worse, Glen Barnes (John Patrick Hayden) looks to keep his grindhouse operation legitimate and must fight the underworld criminals who hold sway in these parts. When Glen's entire staff is massacred on opening night, Glen must revert back to his violent history to exact a little revenge. Meanwhile, Glen's cop ex-girlfriend (Michelle Owens) tries to convince him to keep his nose clean while her partner, played by Jeff Fahey (PLANET TERROR), tries to snuff their rekindling romance. Co-starring Carl Fury (POSED FOR MURDER) and directed by Tim Kincaid (BAD GIRLS DORMITORY), RIOT ON 42nd STREET is a sleazy salute to a beloved bygone era.
