VS-149: Blood Mania / Point of Terror [BD/DVD Combo] *Limited Edition of 3,000*


Vinegar Syndrome presents a lurid double dose of 70s sleaze from one of the most enigmatic leading men of the era: Peter Carpenter.

Please note: this limited edition first pressing of 3,000 units includes an exclusive bonus DVD featuring rare TV versions of both films!

First, in Robert Vincent O’Neill’s BLOOD MANIA, Carpenter stars as Craig, lover of the unstable Victoria (Maria De Aragon), who’s very keen to see her wealthy father reach an early grave so she can inherit his fortune. Deciding to speed up the process, she concocts a diabolical plan for his demise, only to be met with some unexpected obstacles… Playing like a sex and violence drenched soap opera, BLOOD MANIA is a mind-bending drive-in oddity that keeps you guessing until its final shocking twist.

Then, in Alex Nicol’s POINT OF TERROR, Carpenter headlines as Tony Trelos, a lounge singer who mysteriously wakes up on Andrea’s (Dyanne Thorne) private beach. The two quickly begin an affair, but things get complicated when Andrea decides to murder her wheelchair bound husband and Tony starts sleeping with Andrea’s pretty stepdaughter… With its Tom Jones inspired musical interludes and DP Robert Maxwell’s Bava-esque lighting scheme, POINT OF TERROR plays like a candy colored acid trip into the world of vanity themed exploitation.

Vinegar Syndrome proudly brings both of these jaw dropping classics to Blu-ray, newly restored from their original negatives and featuring their much sought after alternative TV versions (exclusive to this first pressing of 3,000 units)!

VS-150: Don’t Answer the Phone! [BD/DVD Combo]

Jim (Alain Patrick) would seem like any other ordinary young man, trying to make ends meet and support his wife (Barbara Mills) and young daughter, while pursuing his dream of sailing around the world. But his profession is anything but ordinary: Jim is a filmmaker in the highly lucrative, and also highly illegal world of X-rated movies…

A new fling with a beautiful, fresh-faced actress begins to take its toll on his home life, while the vice squad begins an ever-increasing surveillance of his studio. Will he manage to escape the vicious clutches of the vice, or succumb to the ever-present temptation of blue money?

Director/Star Alain Patrick’s BLUE MONEY is a powerful, Casavettes-esque examination of LA’s burgeoning hardcore film scene.

Unknown to him, his wife Alice (Cyndee Summers) has been having an affair with his brother (John Leslie). After their teenage daughters Robin and Naomi (Ginger Lynn and Karen Summer respectively) are expelled from boarding school, things come to a head when Jeremy discovers the affair and he and Alice split up, each taking one girl. Soon erotic tensions build as Naomi begins to lust after her uncle and Robin becomes more and more fascinated by the concept of incest…
