5 Films 5 Years Volume 2: Horror And Exploitation Blu-Ray
Over the past five years, all of us at 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 our focus is always on preservation (and ALL of our restorations are archived in either 2k or 4k, depending on how the film was scanned), on some titles we couldn’t justify the expense of Blu-ray and as such, only DVD editions were issued.
However, to celebrate our fifth anniversary, we’ve assembled this
limited edition 2-disc Blu-ray collection of five previously DVD only
Exploitation and Horror titles, spanning the wide reaches of our
archive. This set is limited to 2,500 units.
One man exploitation filmmaking machine
Cirio Santiago’s high octane and female led action classic, THE
MUTHERS, chronicles a dangerous attempt to rescue an inmate from a
brutal all-female prison.
FLESH & BULLETS:
A confusing film from a
confusing filmography, Carlos Tobalina’s bizarre 80s updating of
STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, features the likes of Yvonne DeCarlo and Cesar
Romero acting along side Mai Lin!
THE HANG UP:
Unsung auteur, John Hayes’ masterpiece
of misery follows the sad life of a lonely vice cop who begins an
illicit affair with a beautiful prostitute, only to discover that she’s
underage, sending him into a downward spiral of corruption and violence.
DUNGEON OF HARROW:
This Texas made 16mm obscurity
directed by comic artist Pat Boyette is a contemporaneous tribute to
early 60s gothic horror films, as a shipwrecked sailor finds himself
trapped in a castle populated by bloodthirsty nobility.
MURDER ON THE EMERALD SEAS:
The directorial debut of
Alan Ormsby, this oddball murder murder mystery focuses on a series of
mysterious deaths surrounding a beauty patent, promoting the lead
detective to go undercover to investigate…in drag!
