This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 3,000 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com! Limit 1 per customer.

Amidst a dazzling meteor shower, the Nightbeast lands near a small East Coast town, armed with his vaporizing ray gun and a goal of killing everyone who crosses his path. As area residents are blasted to smithereens, the local sheriff and an ever dwindling group of survivors become determined to figure out a way to defeat this fearsome alien before their entire community is wiped out.

A dazzling display of lo-fi ambition from Baltimore based cult filmmaker and underrated auteur, Don Dohler (Alien Factor, Fiend), NIGHTBEAST immediately plunges the viewer into a frenzy of wildly colorful and stunning animation techniques, homemade gore effects, and awkward sexual encounters. Made for a scant $14,000 and featuring a soundtrack partially composed by a then teenage J.J. Abrams (Star Trek, Star Wars Episode VIII), Vinegar Syndrome proudly brings this regional sci-fi/horror classic to Blu-ray in a brand new 2k restoration of its 16mm camera original!
