Mulberry Street is a 2006 horror sci fi film directed by Jim Mickle. The film is set in a run down tenement building during a heat wave. As night falls on the city the tenants of the building find themselves battling against a horde of mutant giant rat creatures. These rat monsters are turning helpless New Yorkers into a new and bloodthirsty species. What has caused all this? A mysterious virus, of course, which is now causing chaos as it spreads throughout the whole of the city. Now it is up to six recently evicted tenants to try to survive the night and protect their building as the city spirals into chaos and madness. This is a super low budget film that was shot in the crowded streets of New York City in a guerrilla style, often without official permits. All of the actors were friends who knew each other and were not paid.
