'Forgotten Gialli: Volume Three' - Pre-order available from Vinegar Syndrome direct - $59.99

Release date: February 23

"This limited edition and painstakingly crafted box set (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 6,000 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

In this third installment in our celebration of gialli which we feel have been overlooked during the home video age, we're proud to offer this trio of diverse and bloody offerings, all of which are making their worldwide Blu-ray debuts! All three films are presented in brand new and exclusive restorations of their original, uncensored, 35mm camera negatives. Vinegar Syndrome is proud to present the third entry in their 'Forgotten Gialli' series.


AUTOPSY: A wave of sudden, violent suicides have gripped Rome and are being blamed on sun spots. Simona, a young pathologist with an unhealthy obsession with death, has become increasingly interested in this strange phenomenon. But with the discovery of the body of a young woman, an apparent victim of a self inflicted gunshot, Simona finds herself thrust into a terrifying mystery and conspiracy to cloak actual murders as suicides. And the nearer she comes to unraveling the truth, the more in danger she is to entering the sights of a deranged killer, who might be a lot closer to home than she realizes.

An expertly directed and at times staggeringly brutal thriller from Armando Crispino (The Dead Are Alive), AUTOPSY (which was made under the title 'Sun Spots' and released internationally as 'The Victim') stars Mimsy Farmer (Four Flies on Grey Velvet), Barry Primus (New York, New York), and Ray Lovelock (Let Sleeping Corpses Lie). Featuring stunning photography from veteran Italian DP Carlo Carlini (The Bloodstained Butterfly) and an acclaimed score from Ennio Morricone (A Lizard in a Woman's Skin), Vinegar Syndrome is proud to bring AUTOPSY to Blu-ray, fully uncensored and featuring its complete English and Italian language audio tracks fully intact.


Special Features and Specs:
  • Region Free Blu-ray
  • Newly scanned & restored in 2k from its 35mm original camera negative
  • Includes both the English and Italian language soundtracks

  • 1.85:1
  • English & Italian Mono

MURDER MANSION: On a dark and foggy night in the countryside, a group of apparent strangers all find themselves stranded at an old gothic mansion. Deciding to spend the night and look for help the following morning, the group pair off for bed. As the night wares on, increasingly strange events begin to occur, culminating in a murder. Tensions and suspicions rise, and fear mounts that the ghosts of the mansion have risen from the grave, especially when more bodies turn up...but is the explanation behind these ghastly events truly supernatural?

One of the best and most effective combinations of mid 60s style gothic Euro horror and early 70s flavored giallo intrigue, Francisco Lara Polpo's Spanish-Italian co-production, MURDER MANSION (originally titled 'The Mansion in the Fog') became a drive-in and late-nite TV hit in the US, during the mid 1970s. Never legally released in the United States on disc, Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents the Blu-ray premier of MURDER MANSION, newly restored in 4K from its original negative and includes its original Spanish soundtrack along with its English and nearly impossible to find Italian dubs.


Special Features and Specs:
  • Region Free Blu-ray
  • Newly scanned & restored in 4k from its 35mm original camera negative
  • Includes the original Spanish language soundtrack with new English translations, as well as the English and Italian language dubs (Italian dub is not translated)
  • “Lady of the Mansion” - an interview with actress Ida Galli aka Evelyn Stewart
  • Reversible cover artwork
  • Newly translated English SDH subtitles for the original Spanish soundtrack
  • directed by: Francisco Lara Polop
  • starring: Evelyn Stewart, Analía Gadé, Lisa Leonardi, Andrés Resino, Yelena Samarina
  • 1972
  • 86 min
  • 1.85:1
  • Spanish
  • English & Italian Mono

CRAZY DESIRES OF A MURDERER: The Countess Ileana has just returned to her family's grand old castle, where her paralyzed father, an apparent clairvoyant, and strange younger brother, with an unhealthy interest in taxidermy, reside. Almost immediately after arriving, one of Ileana's friends, who's visiting the castle, is shockingly murdered and has her eyes plucked out of their sockets. While suspicion falls on Ileana's brother, a curious police inspector (Sicilian character actor Corrado Gaipa of THE GODFATHER and MY DEAR KILLER) begins to investigate, believing there to be more to the killing than meets the eye. However, his sleuthing proves no match for this maniac, as the body count steadily rises...

A delirious mix of gothic horror, sex drama, murder mystery, plus a whole lot of extracted eyeballs, Filippo Walter Ratti's CRAZY DESIRES OF A MURDERER (though known in Italy as the much more lurid 'The Morbid Vices of a Housekeeper') remains one of the forgotten treats of late 70s giallo cinema. Never released theatrically in the English speaking world and virtually unavailable on home video, Vinegar Syndrome is delighted to bring this trashy rarity to Blu-ray, newly restored in 4K from its 35mm original negative!


Special features and Specs:
  • Region Free Blu-ray
  • Newly scanned & restored in 4k from its 35mm original camera negative
  • “Crazy Memories of an Actor” - an interview with actor Giuseppe Colombo
  • Reversible cover artwork
  • Newly translated English SDH subtitles
  • directed by: Filippo Walter Ratti
  • starring: Corrado Gaipa, Roberto Zattini, Isabelle Marchall, Annie Carol Edel
  • 1977
  • 89 min
  • 1.85:1
  • Italian Mono

'The Fear' (1995) - Pre-order available from Vinegar Syndrome direct - $27.99

Release date: February 23

"This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Richard Hilliard) is limited to 4,000 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

Richard is a college student who has decided to focus his attention on the study of fear and has invited a group of friends up to his family's secluded mountain cabin for the weekend, during which they've agreed to participate in his project and share what terrifies them. While the experiment seems harmless at first, when it comes time for Richard to reveal what he's afraid of, the answer comes in the form of a strange, lifelike, wooden carving of a man which has been in the cabin for generations and is named Morty. As the friends attempt to enjoy their wilderness seclusion, Morty comes to life and begins stalking and killing the youngsters in ways that go far beyond their most horrific nightmares.

One of the quintessential mid 90s indie horror films, Vincent Robert’s THE FEAR features Heather Medway (TV's Viper), Ann Turkel (Humanoids From the Deep), Vince Edwards (The Killing), plus a rare acting role from legendary horror filmmaker, Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street). Taking full advantage of its scenic locales, THE FEAR ramps up its body count, leading to a tense and bloody climax and is headed to Blu-ray, fully uncut and uncensored in a new, 4K restoration of its 35mm camera negative."

'Hitcher in the Dark' (1989) - Pre-order available from Vinegar Syndrome direct - $27.99

Release date: February 23

"This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 4,000 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

Young and handsome Mark Glazer roams around the southeastern United States in his decked out camper, picking up single female hitchhikers. Once he has the unsuspecting travelers trapped inside his RV, Mark savagely assaults and then murders them by slashing their throats, taking photos of the grisly aftermath to add into his macabre collection. But everything changes when he happens to meet Daniela, a spitting image for his deceased mother, who soon becomes the victim of his most savage torments...

Directed by one of the true godfathers of Italian horror and exploitation cinema, Umberto Lenzi (Cannibal Ferox), HITCHER IN THE DARK is an ultra violent mix of suspense thriller and action which stars Josie Bissett (Melrose Place), Jason Saucier (Sister Sister), and Joe Balogh (Moonstalker) as Mark. One of several films produced in the United States by Joe D'Amato (Emanuelle in America) that attempted to tie itself in with a popular American film, this was marketed in Italy as 'Hitcher 2,' and makes its worldwide Blu-ray debut from Vinegar Syndrome in a brand new 4K restoration of its original 35mm negative!"

"Handed over my personal 35mm print of one of my earlier films to Lee Jones last week, so Vinegar Syndrome can release it on DVD and BD for the first time ever in the U.S. Can't tell you the title since they're not ready to announce it yet. It's a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma! Sorry..."

Witchboard is out by Scream Factory as is Night of the Demons. Witchtrap is already out on VS so it's probably The Cellar which doesn't seem to be out anywhere.

Cheers for that Justin I'll take a look, The Cellar seems to be a forgotten about film.
