Welcome to the Vinegar Syndrome Staff Picks section, where we highlight our favorite releases from the many other fine labels releasing films on home video. This section, which will be updated semi regularly, features an array of crucial genre films, which no home library should be without.
Since our inception, Vinegar Syndrome, through our sister lab, OCN Digital Labs, has had the honor of working on dozens of restorations for some of the best home video distributors in the business. As well as being selected as a 'Staff Picks' title, we were also involved with this film's digital restoration in some combination of scanning, restoration and/or color correction. Films that we have worked on will be tagged with the 'Lab Work' label.
An innocent afternoon of spying on their parents having sex (and then forcibly sexually assaulting the farm hand) turns even more vile for three daughters when escaped convicts pick their farm to hide from the cops! A horrifying, hardcore afternoon of assault, torture and incest follows as the convicts take advantage of the entire family, culminating in a shocking, perverted game of “Simon Says” and a weirdly mixed and edited final montage. This film is the very definition of “hardcore,” and one of the most eyebrow raising films in the Impulse Pictures library!
One of the more notorious hardcore “roughies” of the 1970s, THE FARMER’S DAUGHTERS is a controversial classic. A sick, uncomfortable viewing experience that’s a “grizzly pornographic take on the home invasion LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT style of horror film… an uncomfortable viewing due to its sleazy and socially irredeemable content,” (Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop!). Also notable for starring Spalding Gray (SWIMMING TO CAMBODIA), in one of his three rare hardcore pornography roles, as one of the convicts.
