Forgotten Gem: Trespass (1992)

What do you get when you take the writers of Back to the Future, the director of The Warriors and 48 Hours, add a touch of John Huston's The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and throw in a few rappers? The answer is Trespass, a film about two firemen who search an abandoned building for some loot only to end up being targeted by some jive-talking black men aka a LA street gang. TRAILER TIME!


Along with the Two Ices, Trespass also stars Bill 'Private Hudson' Paxton, William 'Grim Reaper' Sadler and that young limo driver. Trespass is the kind of film you discover late on BBC2 while opening your second bottle of wine and wondering why your life is so damn depressing. Happily, at least you get to discover a good film full of plenty of lines like "What are you white boys doing here?" and the most amazing 1990s era hair do.

Only a rapper married to a woman like this could get away with that barnet. Respect yo.
