Necromancer 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 store, The Archive in Bridgeport, CT.

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 brick and mortar retailers. Absolutely no other online stores will be stocking them. This release is strictly limited to 4,000 units and will never be re-released in another version.


Julie Johnson, a young college coed, is savagely gang raped by a trio of men who then attempt to blackmail her into staying silent. As Julie attempts to put her life back together and deal with her now suspicious boyfriend, she learns of a strange fortune teller who professes to have the ability to exact revenge through supernatural means. After visiting the woman, who senses her trauma, Julie is possessed by a demonic force that punishes her attackers in the most fitting way possible: castration…and death.

A supernatural take on the rape and revenge storyline, Dusty Nelson’s (Effects) NECROMANCER was written by William Naud (Whodunit) and features a supporting performance from Russ Tamblyn (Satan’s Sadists). Colorfully photographed and oozing with late 80s B-movie charm, Vinegar Syndrome Archive presents NECROMANCER on disc for the first time, newly restored in 4K from its original 35mm camera negative.
