VS-234: 5 Film 5 Years: Volume #3 [BD Set] *Limited Edition of 2,500*

Over the past five years, Vinegar Syndrome have worked to find, restore, and re-issue some of the most eclectic, unique, and unjustly forgotten genre films from the greatest era for independent cinema, the 1960s through 80s. While their focus is always on preservation (and ALL of their restorations are archived in either 2k or 4k, depending on how the film was scanned), on some titles they couldn’t justify the expense of Blu-ray and as such, only DVD editions were issued.

However, to celebrate their fifth anniversary, they’ve assembled another limited edition 2-disc Blu-ray collection of five previously DVD only hardcore rarities, spanning the wide reaches of their archive. This set is limited to 2,500 units. Limit 1 copy per customer – strictly enforced.

Four tales of intrigue and horror await anyone brave enough to enter the HOUSE OF THE DEAD… When a philandering husband accidentally finds himself lost during a rainstorm, he’s taken in by an elderly mortician and is forced to learn the ghastly origins of four freshly arrived corpses: a scornful teacher whose students teach her a fatal lesson, an amateur filmmaker with a deadly muse, two dueling detectives attempting to solve a mysterious murder, and a bitter man whose arrogance costs him everything…

Directed by Sharron Miller (AFTER SCHOOL SPECIALS) and featuring atmospheric photography by Ken Gibb (DRIVE-IN MASSACRE), this low budget, Oklahoma made horror anthology features a collection of ghoulish vignettes ranging from wryly comedic to genuinely grim and unsettling. Barely released theatrically and only available in murky video sourced editions, Vinegar Syndrome presents HOUSE OF THE DEAD (originally released as ALIEN ZONE) newly restored from its original 35mm negative and on Blu-ray for the first time!

Directed by: Sharron Miller

VS-237: Buddies [BD/DVD Combo]

David (David Schachter), a naive graduate student, has volunteered to work as a ‘buddy’ for people dying of AIDS. Assigned to the intensely political Robert (Geoff Edholm), a lifelong activist whose friends and family have abandoned him following his diagnosis, the two men, each with notably different world views, soon discover common bonds, as David’s inner activist awakens and Robert’s need for emotional release is fulfilled.

The first narrative feature film made about AIDS, acclaimed independent filmmaker Arthur Bressan Jr’s (PASSING STRANGERS, ABUSE) BUDDIES is an intensely personal study of love, death, and the need for activism during the earliest years of the AIDS crisis. Structured like a filmed play, BUDDIES would be Bressan’s final film, as he too would fall victim to AIDS barely two years after its completion. Nearly impossible to see following its brief theatrical release and never officially released on home video, BUDDIES makes its home video debut, newly restored from its long lost 16mm negative, from Vinegar Syndrome.

Directed by: Arthur J. Bressan Jr.

Starring: Geoff Edholm, David Schachter, Damon Hairston, Joyce Korn

On the advice of his tax lawyer (Ron Jeremy), he decides to fund a sure-to-flop play titled ‘Piece & War;’ the dream project of narcissistic director Stan Slavsky, in the hope of being able to use its failings to get a tax write off. But soon, Cashbox realizes that he might be in over his head, as Broadway starlet Tootsie Lamarr (Veronica Hart) wants in on the production and Stable girl turned hopeful starlet, Suzy, catches the romantic eye of the smug Slavsky…

A broad minded comedy from the filmmaking team of Roberta Findlay and Walter Sear, LIQUID A$$ETS blends burlesque styled comedy schtick with humorous and sensual eroticism.

But when a trio of dim-witted city folk arrive at the ranch, hoping for a more conventional western getaway experience, they quickly find themselves in the midst of a carnal getaway, the likes of which they could never have expected, all the while the new girl, Jennie, whose husband wants her to give up her life at the brothel, is starting to have doubts on her chosen profession, but can’t decide if she’s ready to give up easy money for the prospect of true love.

A wry blending of low key comedy and light romantic drama, SHOWDOWN is a forgotten treat of late-period theatrical erotica from acclaimed director Henri Pachard.
