Nomi Malone will be a star. She knows it. The problem is, no one else does…yet. Fresh to Las Vegas and with no connections, Nomi takes a job as an exotic dancer at a club named Cheetahs. Showing impressive abilities, her talents are quickly noticed by Stardust Casino headlining dancer, Cristal who senses an opportunity to bolster her own act. But Nomi won’t play second fiddle and soon begins her venomous path to the top, ruthlessly backstabbing anyone who gets in her way…however karma has a funny way of catching up as Nomi learns that being a Vegas showgirl has a harder and more brutal edge than she'd ever have imagined...
One of the most controversial, acclaimed, and iconic films directed by the legendary Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall, RoboCop), SHOWGIRLS is a glittering, shocking, tragic, funny, weird, gross, sexy, and staggeringly beautiful epic of what it takes to triumph in show business. Written by Joe Eszterhas (Basic Instinct, Sliver) and starring Elizabeth Berkley (TV's Saved By the Bell), Kyle MacLachlan (Blue Velvet), Gina Gershon (Bound), Robert Davi (Die Hard), and Rena Riffel (Mulholland Drive), SHOWGIRLS is feast for the senses from beginning to end, enhanced further by Jost Vacano’s (Starship Troopers) stunning photography and Peter Morse's spellbinding dance choreography. Vinegar Syndrome Ultra couldn’t be happier to present Paul Verhoeven’s cult masterpiece on 4K UHD, newly restored from Verhoeven’s director approved color graded master, and featuring a consummate selection of interviews and archival materials which at last tell the crazy true story of this one-of-a-kind film!

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.
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.
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.
