The Nomed Family has been the victim of an ancient curse in which the first born daughter of each generation has gone violently mad and then suspiciously dies. No one can explain the Nomed madness, but some say it’s because of the possession of a terrible demonic force. By way of an unnatural urge during her Mother’s funeral, Susan entered her family’s mausoleum, and ever since an evil presence has been lurking inside of her, waiting for a chance to come out. Now an adult, something is hiding inside Susan’s body, coming out to grotesquely murder anyone who comes too close to uncovering her terrifying secret.
A consummate blending of early 80s supernatural horror and slasher film tropes, Michael Dugan’s (SUPER SEAL) MAUSOLEUM is a stylish, sleazy, and outrageously gory production, featuring a series of imaginative death scenes orchestrated by effects wizard John Carl Buechler (REANIMATOR, TROLL). Starring Bobbie Bresee (GHOULIES) and Marjoe Gortner (WHEN YOU COMIN’ BACK RED RYDER?) and featuring a moody orchestral score from Jamie Mendoza-Nava (BOYS OF COMPANY C), Vinegar Syndrome is pleased to bring MAUSOLEUM to to Blu-ray, under exclusive license from producer Michael Franzese and distributor Lon Kerr, fully uncut and newly restored from its camera negative, with its ‘explosive’ opening sequence completely intact.
