Beautiful, innocent Lisa (Samantha Fox) has been found dead of a heroin overdose. At her funeral, the people in her life gather to memorialize her, reflecting on how their own deeds sent her down a path of self-destruction and death. As each memory unfolds on screen, Lisa is seen to transform from a naive model who’s forced to use her body to achieve her goals, to a manipulative vixen capable of luring men into her web of carnal abuse, to a tragic victim of her own insecurities and victimization.
The first and most popular erotic feature directed by Roger Watkins (LAST HOUSE ON DEAD END STREET), HER NAME WAS LISA is a chilling study in sexual and emotional manipulation, punctuated by arresting performances from Samantha Fox and Vanessa Del Rio. Long unavailable in its original form and only viewable through grey market sources, Vinegar Syndrome brings this explicit classic to Blu-ray, fully restored from its original 35mm camera negative and completely uncut.
