Unique to this line, each hand numbered limited edition release will come fitted in a specially designed, bottom loading VHS inspired slipcase, featuring the original video art used for the film, while also including a double-sided poster.
These releases will ONLY be available on our website and at participating brick and mortar retailers. Absolutely no other online stores will be stocking them. This release is strictly limited to 3,000 units and will never be re-released in another version. We are allocating 2,500 units to sell here on our website and 500 units to be sold at participating retail video stores (see list).
Also, due to an uncertain release schedule and our mission to support local retailers by offering them extremely low wholesale rates, these VSA releases will not be included in the yearly packages, however, you should have received a coupon in your email.
Following the trend of raunchy direct-to-video sex comedies popularized in the early to mid 80s, director Rick Sloane (Hobgoblins) decided to take his own stab at the sub-genre, creating the surprise hit franchise VICE ACADEMY in 1989. Featuring the comedic exploits of undercover female vice cops who go head-to-head with everything from smut film producers to arch villainesses with plans for sexual world domination, each film mixes T&A with broad slapstick humor and hijinks.
Starring iconic scream queen Linnea Quigley (Night of the Demons) and erotic film legend Ginger Lynn Allen (Trashy Lady), the VICE ACADEMY series was a staple of late-night TV throughout the early to mid 90s. Known for their absurd plot lines and surprisingly robust and colorful visuals, Vinegar Syndrome Archive presents VICE ACADEMY 1-3 all newly restored in 2K from their original 35mm camera negatives and together in one handy collection.
