VINEGAR SYNDROME FEBRUARY 2020 RELEASES

Vinegar Syndrome head into the month of love with a third entry of a franchise, a proto-slasher, and a hardcore black comedy.

Below you can check out what they have set for release this February.

 

VS-308: Xtro 3: Watch the Skies [BD/DVD Combo] *Limited Slipcover*

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

A group of military personnel have been assembled to, they believe, locate and disarm old active explosives which have been left unattended at a former army testing site on a remote island. But when they arrive at the deserted island, they soon discover that something doesn’t seem quite right about their mission. Soon enough, they uncover a strange concrete block which, after accidentally blowing up, unleashes an indestructible, bloodthirsty alien being which will stop at nothing to kill them. As the survivors band together in order to stay alive and try and find a way to outwit the diabolical creature, they realize that their entire mission might have been a trap and that the military is using them as pawns in their own vicious plan…

The third and most violent entry in the XTRO trilogy, Harry Bromley Davenport’s XTRO 3: WATCH THE SKIES moves the setting to Southern California while amping up both the action and the gore, through a series of nasty and inventive death scenes. Featuring a talented supporting cast, including Virgil Frye (Easy Rider, Graduation Day), Andrew Divoff (Air Force One, Toy Soldiers), Nigel Gibbs (Pump Up the Volume), and Robert Culp (I Spy) and photographed by Irv Goodnoff (Evilspeak, The Farmer), Vinegar Syndrome presents this underrated slice of 90s action tinged sci-fi/horror on Blu-ray for the very first time, newly restored in 2k from its original 35mm camera negative.

VS-309: Hollywood Horror House [BD/DVD Combo] *Limited Slipcover*

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

Vic Valance (David Garfield) is an enigmatic young man who has manipulated his way into working at the decaying mansion of a once prolific, but now reclusive and alcoholic, movie star named Katharine Packard (Miriam Hopkins). While the rest of the house staff become suspicious of Vic’s intentions, the aging movie queen finds in him a companion and, she hopes, a lover. But as Vic begins behaving in more and more erratic ways, it becomes clear that he’s far more sinister than his demeanor implies and might in fact be a vicious serial killer who has been murdering and dismembering middle-aged women in Hollywood…

A psychedelic proto-slasher by way of Sunset Blvd, HOLLYWOOD HORROR HOUSE (aka SAVAGE INTRUDER) was shot on and off between late 1969 and mid 1973 by writer/producer/director Donald Wolfe, with funds from his star home bus tour company. Chock full of lurid, candy-colored freak-outs shot by John Morrill (A Boy and His Dog) along with surprisingly grisly murder set pieces, plus a supporting cast including Gale Sondergaard, Virginia Wing (Law and Order), Florence Lake (Welcome to Arrow Beach), and Joe Besser (The Three Stooges) in his final role in a feature film, HOLLYWOOD HORROR HOUSE ramps up its weirdness all the way through it’s demented final act and comes to Blu-ray from Vinegar Syndrome, newly restored in 4k from its original 35mm camera negative.

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

New York congressman Nicholas Stern (Paul Thomas) runs a clean campaign, or so he’d like his constituency to believe. Hoping to win a seat in the senate by promoting conservative, anti ‘smut’ values, Stern is in fact a ruthless hypocrite with an on-call pimp and a cold-hearted desire to win back his high school fling, Marybeth. But when Elvira Lawrence, a respected reporter, decides to do a scoop on his crooked activities, Stern begins to fear that he might be revealed for who he really is…

A big-budget hardcore black comedy with an all-star cast, Henri Pachard’s (The Devil in Miss Jones Part 2) PUBLIC AFFAIRS features Annette Haven (China Girl), Kelly Nichols (Roommates), Annette Heinz (Burlexx), Richard Bolla (Cannibal Holocaust) and Joey Silvera (Pretty Peaches). Produced and co-written by Joyce Snyder (Pledge Night) and photographed by Larry Revene (Doom Asylum), PUBLIC AFFAIRS remains one of the classics of early 80s erotica and comes to Blu-ray newly restored in 2k from its original negative, from Vinegar Syndrome.
