'Pale Blood' - Dual version pre-order available from Vinegar Syndrome direct - $24.99

Release date: April 28th

"Michael Fury (George Chakiris, West Side Story) is a vampire. But contrary to myth and legend, he does not stalk innocent victims to drain them of blood - and life - rather he only drinks what he needs to survive. But when a vicious, and very human, killer begins murdering young women in Los Angeles by biting them and draining their blood, sparking fears that a vampire is prowling the city, Michael realizes that it will be up to him to unmask the fiend behind these deaths to save the good name of his vampire brethren.

A tense and sensual blending of supernatural mysticism and horror set in the neon tinged world of early 90s Hollywood, V.V. Dachin Hsu’s PALE BLOOD breathes depth and originality into the vampire genre. Colorfully photographed by Gerry Livley (Waxwork) and featuring supporting performances from Wings Hauser (Vice Squad) and Darcy DeMoss (Hardbodies), Vinegar Syndrome presents the world Blu-ray debut of PALE BLOOD in a brand new 2K restoration."


Special features:
  • Region A Blu-ray/DVD combo
  • Newly scanned & restored in 2k from its 35mm interpositive
  • “Understanding Immortality” - an interview with director V.V. Dachin Hsu
  • “Acting With Eggs” - an interview with actress Darcy DeMoss
  • Reversible cover artwork
  • SDH English subtitles

'Dolly Dearest' - Dual version pre-order available from Vinegar Syndrome direct - $24.99

Release date: April 28th

"American family Elliot and Marilyn Wade, along with their young children Jessica and Jimmy, have just relocated to Mexico, where Elliot has taken over a doll factory. As they settle into their fresh surroundings, Jessica forms a special bond with her new doll, spending hours with it in her large playhouse. But soon, her mother and older brother sense that something isn't quite right with the sweetly faced toy. It's not long before strange and frightening events start to occur, and members of the household begin turning up dead in a series of apparent 'accidents’.

The sole horror feature directed by veteran exploitation crew-woman and actress, Maria Lease, and produced by Dan Cady (Grave of the Vampire), DOLLY DEAREST, takes a thematic nod from Child's Play while upping the weirdness. Starring Denise Crosby (Pet Sematary), Sam Bottoms (Apocalypse Now), and featuring a memorable supporting performance from Rip Torn (Men in Black), Vinegar Syndrome brings this early 90s cult favorite to Blu-ray for the very first time, in a brand new 2K restoration."

Vinegar Syndrome are thrilled to finally announce our first (of several) collections of rare Italian and Spanish gialli. Forgotten Gialli: Volume 1 will feature three never available in the US titles and will be released in April. Pre-orders will be available soon.

Javier Aguirre's Euro-sleaze-star-studded adaptation of And Then There Were None, THE KILLER IS ONE OF 13, León Klimovsky's giallo/proto-slasher hybrid, TRAUMA, and Helia Colombo's supremely weird THE POLICE ARE BLUNDERING IN THE DARK.

All three of these nearly impossible to see films will be presented in brand new, 2K restorations from their original negatives."

Pre-order available from Vinegar Syndrome direct - $49.99

Release date: April 28th

"This limited edition and painstakingly crafted boxset (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 5,000 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome .com!

Note: this box includes three Blu-rays and cases (no DVDs).

The giallo remains one of the must popular sub-genres in Italian and Spanish film history. But for all of the well-known and classic films the genre has spawned, so many others have been nearly impossible to enjoy since their theatrical debuts. This first entry in our 'Forgotten Gialli' series presents three rarities, two from Spain and one from Italy, none of which have ever been legally available in the English speaking world.

TRAUMA:

Daniel, a writer seeking seclusion to work on his new book, finds himself stranded at a rural bed and breakfast run by a strange and prudish young woman and her ailing, wheelchair-bound husband who remains shut in his room all day. However, as night falls, a psychotic, razor-wielding killer begins stalking the bed and breakfast, brutally slashing the throats of its most sex-crazed guests, whose bodies and luggage then mysteriously disappear the following morning...

A satisfyingly trashy low-budget Spanish giallo which inadvertently also ranks as one of the country's earliest proto-slashers, León Klimovsky's (The Vampire's Night Orgy) TRAUMA aka Violación Fatal is filled with gratuitous sex and nudity, along with bloody killings. Barely released outside of Spain, Vinegar Syndrome presents TRAUMA on Blu-ray, in a brand new 2K restoration of its camera negative and in its longest version ever presented on home video."


Special Features:
  • Region Free Blu-ray
  • Newly scanned & restored in 2k from its 35mm original negative
  • Original Spanish language sound with newly translated English subtitles
  • Historical commentary track with European cult cinema author Troy Howarth
  • Promotional image gallery

KILLER IS ONE OF 13:

"A recent widow has invited a group of family friends to her large and secluded country home. However, what the guests don't know, is that the reason they've been assembled is because their host suspects one of them might be her husband's killer and she's intent on uncovering the identity of his murderer. As the guests begin to suspect each other, revealing long kept and sinister secrets in the process, an unknown, black-gloved killer begins bumping them off in a variety of nasty ways.

A unique Spanish take on Agatha Christie's oft-adapted novel, and giallo source material favorite, And Then There Were None, exploitation auteur Javier Aguirre's (Count Dracula's Great Love) THE KILLER IS ONE OF 13 is uncharacteristically literary-in-structure, but never skimps on its requisite bloodshed. Featuring some of Spain's top genre film stars including Patty Shepard (Rest in Pieces), Jack Taylor (Female Vampire), and Paul Naschy in a supporting role, Vinegar Syndrome brings THE KILLER IS ONE OF 13 to Blu-ray, newly restored in 2K from its original negative and available in North America for the first time in any format."


Special Features:
  • Region Free Blu-ray
  • Newly scanned & restored in 2k from its 35mm original negative
  • Original Spanish language sound with newly translated English subtitles
  • Historical commentary with author and Editor-In-Chief of Diabolique Magazine Kat Ellinger
  • Promotional image gallery

THE POLICE ARE BLUNDERING IN THE DARK:

"A young nude-model is violently stabbed to death with a pair of scissors. It soon emerges that three other women have already fallen prey to this unknown maniac, and that all three victims have a single and unique connection: they all served as models for an eccentric photographer named Parisi. When another young woman with a date to be photographed is murdered, her journalist boyfriend decides to investigate the crimes and quickly finds himself mixed up with Parisi, who reveals that he's working on a camera capable of photographing people's thoughts!

The only film credit from 'one-and-done' director, Helia Colombo, THE POLICE ARE BLUNDERING IN THE DARK is a satisfyingly sleazy and decidedly oddball giallo rarity, filled with bloody killings, plentiful nudity, wild plot twists, and plenty of general weirdness. Unseen outside of its native Italy, Vinegar Syndrome presents THE POLICE ARE BLUNDERING IN THE DARK in a fresh, 2K restoration of its original negative and in its first official home video release anywhere in the world."


Special Features:
  • Region Free Blu-ray
  • Newly scanned & restored in 2k from its 35mm original negative
  • Original Italian language sound with newly translated English subtitles
  • Historical audio essay with film historian and critic Rachel Nisbit
  • Promotional image gallery

'Rad' - Pre-order available from Vinegar Syndrome direct - $$29.99

Ships following our Halfway to Black Friday Sale (May 22-25)

"Cru Jones is the fastest and most talented BMX rider in his small logging town. When Duke Best, owner of Mongoose Bicycles, decides to hold a competition at a nearly impossible-to-complete BMX racing course named Hell Track, Cru decides that it's his destiny to compete in the race, which offers a winning cash prize of $100,000. But unknown to Cru, Duke has concocted the race as a publicity stunt to promote his own top rider, Bart Taylor, and begins to do everything in his power to prevent Cru from being able to enter into the competition. To make matters even more complicated, Cru soon learns that the race is scheduled the same day he's supposed to take the SATs and finds himself with a choice between his future in college and a race where all odds are stacked against him...

Among the most beloved films to emerge from the mid 80s BMX bike craze, RAD has developed an ever-growing cult audience, and stars Bill Allen (Born on the 4th of July), Lori Loughlin (TV’s Full House), two time Academy Award nominee Talia Shire (Rocky, The Godfather), Golden Globe nominee Jack Weston (Dirty Dancing), real life Olympic champion Bart Connor and more. Directed by prolific stuntman and filmmaker Hal Needham (The Bad News Bears) and featuring stunning photography by Richard Leiterman (Stephen King's It [1990]), this fun, fast paced, and inspiration for many future pro BMX superstars makes its belated Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD debut from Vinegar Syndrome, in a brand new, breathtaking 4K restoration from its original 35mm camera negative."

"This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 2,000 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

When she was a child, Olivia (Suzanna Love) witnessed the horrifying and violent murder of her prostitute mother at the hands of an angry John. Now an adult, she's married to an abusive and controlling factory worker, that is, until her mother appears to her and demands that Olivia avenge her death by seducing and then slaying men. While disposing of a body near the London Bridge, Olivia has a chance meeting with a friendly American named Mike (Robert Walker Jr) who reveals that he’s visiting England in order to dismantle and move the bridge to Arizona, setting off a series of increasingly strange events, and a lot more bloodshed…

Perhaps the most offbeat film in the fascinating career of German actor turned exploitation auteur, Ulli Lommel (Tenderness of the Wolves, The Boogeyman) OLIVIA (also known as Prozzie and Double Jeopardy) finds a distinctive blend of slasher, erotic thriller, and straight forward sleaze, seasoned with touches of semi-surrealism. Atmospherically photographed and featuring a moody score by Joel Goldsmith (Man’s Best Friend), Vinegar Syndrome brings this nearly unclassifiable piece of early 80s genre weirdness to Blu-ray, newly restored in 4K from its original 35mm camera negative and presented in its completely uncensored version for the first time on disc."


Special features:
  • Region Free Blu-ray/DVD combo
  • Newly scanned & restored in 4k from its 35mm original camera negative
  • “Becoming Olivia” - an interview with actress Suzanna Love
  • “Taking on Many Roles” - an interview with writer/asst. director John P. Marsh
  • “A Chance Meeting” - an interview with cinematographer Jon Kranhouse

  • Super 8mm behind-the-scenes footage shot and narrated by writer/a.d. John P. Marsh
  • Original theatrical trailer

Not sure if everyone knows this as I didn't see it mentioned but this is the same film as Prozzie released over here by 88Films. Apparently, unlike the 88 release, the VS release is uncut. [Source: MondoDigital Review https://www.mondo-digital.com/olivia.html]
