PRODUCT INFORMATION

Brazil’s “Boca do Lixo,” or “Mouth of Garbage” film movement yielded some of the most outrageous and original genre films of the early to mid 80s, yet despite their copious amounts of sex, violence, and often madcap plotlessness, very few were ever distributed outside of their native country. Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents the world Blu-ray debuts of two Boca-styled women-in-prison classics:

AMAZON JAIL (Curral de Mulheres) - 93 min
Deep in the Amazon, dozens of beautiful women are being held hostage in bamboo huts, waiting to be sold on the white slave market. The operation is run by Edgar, a perverted drunk, and Helena, a vicious lesbian. However, when Edgar’s young nephew attempts to help the women escape from their tropical prison, the group are quick to learn that the jungle is no less trecherous…

An exceedingly crass take on the women-in-prison genre, Oswaldo de Oliveira’s AMAZON JAIL features Brazilian matinee idol, Elizabeth Hartmann along with character actors Maurício do Valle, Sergio Hingst, and Vanessa Alves and is presented in a stunning new 4K restoration of its original 35mm negative.

AMAZON JAIL II (Prisioneiras da Selva Amazônica) - 74 min
When a group of tribeswomen are kidnaped, to be sold to a Japanese white slave trader, they find unlikely aid in the men who have been hired to transport them to captivity. Fleeing with the girls, the unlikely traveling companions become lost in the jungle, having to contend with unexpected dangers - both human and animal. But their would-be slaver, and his dwarf assistant, are unwilling to give up on such a prize catch so easily…

Part jungle adventure and part crime-thriller, Conrado Sanchez’ AMAZON JAIL II blends action and T&A, with an all but surreal sense of self-parody and stars Vanessa Alves alongside Brazilian cult actor, Chumbinho and is presented newly restored in 4K for the first time!

Shipping

No, we only ship inside the US

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.

We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.

Product

All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.

Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.

Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.

If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.

Other

We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
