SWORN TO JUSTICE 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 chain, The Archive, with locations in Bridgeport, CT and Aurora, CO.
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 indie retailers. Absolutely no major retailers will be stocking them. This slipcase edition (designed by Ralf Krause) is strictly limited to 5,000 units and may (but probably not) be followed by a standard edition in the future.
Janna Dane (Cynthia Rothrock) is a criminal defense psychologist who has always followed the rule of law and fought to defend those accused of crimes, until one night she discovers that her sister and nephew have been brutally murdered by a gang of thugs in their own home. Attacked by the same criminals, Janna is able to use her martial arts training to defend herself, however, after leaping from a balcony to escape, Janna is hit on the head and rendered unconscious. Once awake, Janna discovers that the blow to her head has given her extra-sensory perception in the form of visions while touching certain objects. After her new found psychic abilities reveal that she is defending one of the thugs that killed her sister and nephew, Janna decides that she has had enough with the justice system and begins a vigilante quest to rid the streets of the criminals responsible. With the help of an author and fellow martial arts enthusiast named Nicholas (Kurt McKinney), Janna soon discovers that those responsible for her family's death may be working for some very powerful people.
Featuring a copious amount of fight scenes blended with a healthy dose of humor, SWORN TO JUSTICE stars international action movie heroine and real-life martial arts champion, Cynthia Rothrock (Undefeatable), in one of her most "revealing" roles. Featuring a strong cast of supporting actors including Brad Dourif (Child's Play), Kurt McKinney (No Retreat, No Surrender), Mako (Red Sun Rising), and Vince Murdocco (L.A. Wars), Vinegar Syndrome Archive is proud to present this quintessential slice of mid-90s late-night action, newly restored in 4k from the original camera negative.
