THEY CALL ME MACHO WOMAN! is part of our Vinegar Syndrome Archive collection, celebrating forgotten cinematic oddities from the video store era. This collection was inspired by our own brick & mortar video stores, with locations in Bridgeport, CT; Aurora, CO and Toronto, ON!

Unique to this line, each hand numbered limited edition release will come fitted in a specially designed, bottom loading VHS inspired slipcase, while also including a double-sided poster.

These releases will ONLY be available on our website and at participating indie retailers. Absolutely no major retailers will be stocking them. This slipcase edition (designed by Robert Sammelin) is strictly limited to 4,000 units and may (but probably not) be followed by a standard edition in the future.


Susan Morris thought she could find peace and quiet by escaping the city and moving to a secluded country town. Unfortunately, she’s picked the wrong day to go house-hunting as she and her mousey real estate agent stumble on a big-money backwoods drug dealing scheme led by the vicious Mongo and his crude gang of inbred thugs. But, when the hillbillies take Susan hostage, they quickly realize they’ve got trouble on their hands and that the pretty, blonde city girl they’ve tied up is in fact a highly trained killing machine!

An expectedly over-the-top stunt spectacle from Northern California auteur Patrick G. Donahue (Kill Squad), whose entire family produced an unbelievable series of one-of-a-kind exploitation classics, THEY CALL ME MACHO WOMAN (originally titled The Edge of Fear) was picked up for distribution by the legendary Troma Entertainment, who have helped cement its legacy as one of the most insane action films in their catalog. Loaded with death-defying stunt work, fast and dangerous car chases, bloody kills, and jaw-droppingly bizarre dialogue, Vinegar Syndrome Archive is excited to offer the world Blu-ray debut of THEY CALL ME MACHO WOMAN, newly restored in 2K from its 35mm camera negative and featuring an ass-kicking assortment of extras.
