Subkultur is a German based home video company devoted to restoring and re-releasing genre cinema in the best possible editions, running the gamut from grindhouse classics like SWITCHBLADE SISTERS to more contemporary genre oddities like SILENT TRIGGER and impressive restoration jobs like BLOODY FRIDAY. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, will exclusively handle U.S. distribution, on select releases, for Subkultur, bringing their unique taste for genre curation and penchant for quality restoration work to American audiences. We are thrilled to be representing Subkultur's line of US home video releases!

On a Friday evening, four people board the elevator in an office building. After it gets stuck, they soon realize that their cries for help go unheeded. Desperate, they decide to free themselves on their own and climb out through a hatch. When their lives are in great danger, a fight breaks out and the situation escalates completely. With every additional minute in this claustrophobic narrowness, the veil of superficiality lifts and reveals a glimpse into the human abyss that is much deeper than the elevator shaft beneath their feet.
