Welcome to the Vinegar Syndrome Staff Picks section, where we highlight our favorite releases from the many other fine labels releasing films on home video. This section, which will be updated semi regularly, features an array of crucial genre films, which no home library should be without.
Since our inception, Vinegar Syndrome, through our sister lab, OCN Digital Labs, has had the honor of working on dozens of restorations for some of the best home video distributors in the business. As well as being selected as a 'Staff Picks' title, we were also involved with this film's digital restoration in some combination of scanning, restoration and/or color correction. Films that we have worked on will be tagged with the 'Lab Work' label.
Time is up for The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers! The landlady has had enough of their dodging rent and drunken stoner parties, and she’s giving them ONE DAY to get the rent paid or they’re being evicted by sundown.
Completely out of money, the Brothers decide to hit the streets and get jobs so they can stay in their awful apartment (it has a toilet in the kitchen)! Fat Freddy goes to work for Mr. Natural (a vitamin salesman, who dresses in a potato sack and fake beard). Vinnie tries being a painter and Frank tries to have sex with the horny landlady, hoping to get more time to pay. All three brothers get more than they bargained for, with wild sexual encounters and crazy madcap humor, as they try to raise the rent money… and their libido!
An erotic oddity from the late 1970s, UP IN FLAMES is unofficially based on The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers and Mr. Natural underground comics.
