Over the past five years, all of us at Vinegar Syndrome have worked to find, restore, and re-issue some of the most eclectic, unique, and unjustly forgotten genre films from the greatest era for independent cinema, the 1960s through 80s. While our focus is always on preservation (and ALL of our restorations are archived in either 2k or 4k, depending on how the film was scanned), on some titles we couldn’t justify the expense of Blu-ray and as such, only DVD editions were issued.
However, to celebrate our fifth anniversary, we’ve assembled another limited edition 2-disc Blu-ray collection of five previously DVD only hardcore rarities, spanning the wide reaches of our archive. This set is limited to 2,500 units. Limit 1 copy per customer – strictly enforced.
