Saturn's Core Audio & Video is a New Jersey based home video label devoted to releasing underground oddities and shot on video cinema on VHS, and now, blu-ray discs! In partnership with OCN Distribution, Saturn's Core will exhume forgotten or under-seen genre cinema from the 80s and 90s, with an emphasis on SOV horror features. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing this diverse and unique home video line!

Leonard (Tommy Biondo) is a depraved serial killer who is documenting his atrocities by keeping a scrapbook of the torment he inflicts, forcing each of his victims to personally chronicle their horrific ordeal within the pages before experiencing their grim demise. When he abducts Clara (Emily Haack), she too must unwillingly add her suffering to the pages of the book. Filthy, naked, and trapped amidst the decaying remains of previous victims, Clara is repeatedly beaten, raped, starved, and humiliated by her unhinged captor. She soon realizes that her only hope for survival is to manipulate Leonard through her writing, by authoring a final and cunning chapter to his macabre and cherished compendium of horrors.

Voted the “Best Independent Film of the Year” (2001) by Rue Morgue Magazine, the raw and claustrophobic Scrapbook heralded a visceral and transgressive turning point in the career of visionary, Missouri based video auteur Eric Stanze (Savage Harvest, Ice from the Sun, Ratline) boasting a fearless and awe-inspiring performance by lead actress Emily Haack. One of the most harrowing and disturbing depictions of a serial killer in cinematic history, Scrapbook polarized audiences, courted controversy, won festival awards, incurred censorship, and foreshadowed the “torture porn” movement in horror that would flourish in the decade to come. Saturn's Core is proud to unleash Scrapbook; fully uncut and uncensored in its first ever, director supervised Blu-Ray edition.
