Culture Shock Releasing is the the union of Lo-Fi Video and Verboden Video, dedicated to preserving genre and cult movies shot on video and film and releasing them on blu-ray, with a heavy focus on films from the 80s and 90s. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing Culture Shock Releasing's brand new line of home video releases!

Detective Darleen Paxton has a sweet but naive sister who wants to become an actress. The sister serves booze in skimpy clothes at a sleazy bar, hoping for that big break. But this bar is frequented by devious predators of young flesh. Soon, Darleen and her partner, Mac, are scouring the city to track down her missing sister. What they find is a savage and sinister sex trafficking ring running right in downtown Hollywood!

The Flesh Merchant is one of the best examples of 90's shot-on-video exploitation moviemaking. Director Mike Tristano (Feast, The Summoned) culled all of his talented friends and associates to make this banger of a thriller. Neil Delama, Joe Estevez, James Adam Tucker, and Michelle Bauer return from Tristano's The Summoned, and are joined by Don Stroud (The Amityville Horror, License to Kill) and screenwriter C. Courtney Joyner (Puppet Master III, Lurking Fear) in a memorable screen performance.
