A man brutally murders a woman after forcing her to write the names of four others. As the murders pile up, the police investigate the links between the victims and how they may be connected to the suicide of a young boy in the same building. Directed by Tai Kato (By a Man's Face You Shall Know Him), a former apprentice of Akira Kurosawa better known for his yakuza films, I, the Executioner is a pitch black neo noir that makes the serial killer the central character. Sensationally photographed with claustrophobic close ups, Kato's film evokes both Hitchcock's Psycho and the films of Nagisa Oshima, while also prefiguring the Italian giallo.

A lonely widower appeals to the police to find his missing daughter. The sceptical police officer picks up the case but it becomes murder when her body is recovered. Now they must find the culprit before the vengeful father does first. Genre master Duccio Tessari (A Pistol for Ringo, The Bloodstained Butterfly) adapts Italy's premier noir writer Giorgio Scerbanenco for this investigative thriller.

Get Carter

Get Carter is a 1971 UK action thriller by Mike Hodges 
Starring Michael Caine, Ian Hendry and Britt Ekland Melon Farmers link  BBFC link 2020  IMDb

Cut by the BBFC for 1971 X rated cinema release, then uncut and 18 rated on home video. Uncut and MPAA R rated in the US. However the film was partly overdubbed in the US lest Americans couldn't understand British accents.

Summary Notes

A vicious London gangster, Jack Carter, travels to Newcastle for his brother's funeral. He begins to suspect that his brother's death was not an accident and sets out to follow a complex trail of lies, deceit, cover-ups and backhanders through Newcastle's underworld, leading, he hopes, to the man who ordered his brother killed. Because of his ruthlessness, Carter exhibits all the unstopability of the cyborg in The Terminator (1984), or Walker in Point Blank (1967), and he and the other characters in this movie are prone to sudden, brutal acts of violence.

UK: Uncut and BBFC 18 rated with a trigger warning for strong sex, violence, references to child sex abuse:

Vinegar Syndrome specializes in the masterful restoration and distribution of cult, horror, and erotic films from the 1960s-90s.

In the near future, video games have evolved to a point where they are able to biologically interact with players through the use of an electronic umbilical cord. Allegra Geller has created eXistenZ, a highly anticipated virtual reality game which has come under fire for its potential ability to effectively warp players' perceptions of reality. When an anti-game zealot attempts to murder Allegra during a demo, she narrowly escapes with the help of her publicist, Ted Pikul. However, Allegra discovers that the only master copy of the game might have been damaged during the attack and convinces Ted to test it with her. After Ted reluctantly agrees, the pair enter the virtual world of eXistenZ, but it's not long before they start becoming uncertain as to where the violent gameplay ends and reality begins...

Director David Cronenberg's (Videodrome, Crash) masterpiece of sci-fi horror for the video game age, eXistenZ stars two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law (The Talented Mr. Ripley), Oscar® nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh (Single White Female), and four-time Oscar® nominee Willem Dafoe (Platoon). Action-packed from beginning to end, and featuring memorable creature effects designed by Stephan Dupuis (Scanners), loaded with a consummate selection of new and archival extras, Vinegar Syndrome is proud to present the 4K UHD debut of this slime-filled look at a virtual future which might become reality sooner than we'd like to think.

The Black Room

The Black Room is a 1983 USA horror thriller by Elly Kenner and Norman Thaddeus Vane.
Starring Stephen Knight and Cassandra Gava and Jimmy Stathis. IMDb

Passed X uncut for 1983 cinema release but the follow up pre-cert VHS release from the same year was seized by police. Currently available on German DVD.

Summary Notes

A room gets put up for rent following the mysterious murder of its previous tenant. When an apartment-hunting man sees the deal the brother and sister landlords are offering, he immediately puts down the first month's rent and starts spending his days there, even though he has a home to spend his nights at with his wife. When he comes home, he tells his wife about the fantasies he has of having sex with various women each day in his new apartment. His wife goes along with it for a while, but when she discovers that her husband's stories are much more than just fantasies, she starts to do some investigating.

Promotional Material

Looking to inject a little more excitement into his life, family man Larry seizes the opportunity when he happens across a newspaper advert for a "unique and exotic" room for rent in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills. The room, draped in black sheets and filled with candles, pillows and mirrors, seems to be the ideal place in which to carry out his extra-marital affairs - which Larry promptly does, first picking up a young college girl and later a prostitute. The mysterious owners of the property, siblings Jason and Bridget, seem more than happy to accommodate the wayward husband, dutifully preparing the room for each visit. But what Larry doesn't realize is that Jason is deathly in need of regular blood transfusions, and the pair have been abducting each of Larry's carnal conquests to use as victims in Jason's deadly laboratory...

Written and co-directed by Norman Thaddeus Vane (writer/director of 1983's Frightmare) and directed by Elly Kenner, 1982's THE BLACK ROOM is a smart, seductive, and utterly unique horror yarn, offering up a distinctive and modern take on the then-tired vampire mythos, whilst doubling down on all the requisite sex and bloodletting one would expect from the genre - the latter aided in no small part by the talents of special effects guru Mark Shostrom (Evil Dead II, the A Nightmare on Elm Street series). Featuring cinematography from Robert Harmon (who'd go on to helm the 1986 cult classic The Hitcher), Vinegar Syndrome is thrilled to resurrect THE BLACK ROOM from its murky VHS grave, pumping fresh blood into this underseen horror gem with a new 4K restoration from 35mm negative elements and an unholy assortment of newly-produced bonus features.

A jolt of adrenaline shot straight to the heart of 1990s British cinema, this darkly funny adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel was a major breakthrough for director Danny Boyle, producer Andrew Macdonald, and screenwriter John Hodge. With live-wire energy and stylistic verve, Trainspotting bounces across the life and times of Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor), a Scottish heroin addict who, along with his misfit mates, gets high, gets in trouble, gets clean, and gets high again, all in a bid to outrun the banality of modern existence. Kinetically cut to an iconic soundtrack of techno, rock, and Brit-pop, this indie phenomenon chooses life in all its ugly, beautiful, terrifying exhilaration.

THIEF. WARRIOR. GLADIATOR. KING.

Ripped from the pages of Robert E. Howard's beloved pulp stories, 1982's Conan the Barbarian and its sequel, 1984's Conan the Destroyer , not only popularized a new subgenre -- the sword-and-sorcery film -- but also made a cinematic icon of the star playing the titular hero, former bodybuilding sensation Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Conan the Barbarian , from maverick filmmaker John Milius, sees the Cimmerian thief and future king rise up from slavery to become an unparalleled and fearsome warrior, intent on vengeance against the evil snake cult that slaughtered his family long ago, led by the shape-shifting sorcerer Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones). In the sequel, helmed by action veteran Richard Fleischer, Conan finds himself escorting a young princess on a quest for a mythical horn that will awaken a slumbering god, battling an onslaught of evil beasts, wizards and cannibals along the way.

At long last, these glorious odes to the days of high adventure have been restored in stunning 4K with hours of bonus features and heart-racing Atmos remixes that immerse you in the action, accompanied throughout by electrifying music scores by the late Basil Poledouris ( RoboCop ). If you do not listen... then to hell with you!

If anyone can undermine an ancient mob blood feud and come out on top, it's the effortlessly clever, sexy and downright devious Nora, played with verve by the stunning Andress. More of an action-comedy than the gritty cop films Di Leo was known for, Loaded Guns shows that Di Leo was more than a one-trick pony.

- Alternate English Audio Track
- Audio Commentary by film historian Rachael Nisbet

Invasion of the Body Snatchers is a 1978 USA Sci-Fi horror by Philip Kaufman.
Starring Donald Sutherland and Brooke Adams and Jeff Goldblum. BBFC link 2020  IMDb

There are no censorship issues with this release

Summary Notes

In San Francisco, a group of people discover the human race is being replaced one by one, with clones devoid of emotion.

UK: Uncut and BBFC 15 rated for strong violence, moderate horror:

Promotional Material

When health official Elizabeth Driscoll (Brooke Adams) notices that her lover has become strangely distant, this sets in train a series of shocking discoveries that sees both her and colleague Matthew Bennell (Donald Sutherland) fleeing for their lives to the sound of ear-piercing alien screams.

Remakes of great films are usually on a hiding to nothing, but Philip Kaufman's brilliant update of the 1956 classic is a rare and memorable exception. Transposing the action to the heart of San Francisco allows Kaufman to retain all the suspense of Jack Finney's original story while adding caustic social commentary about the selfishness of the 1970s "me generation" that remains all too relevant today.

But it's a paranoid thriller first and foremost, based on one of the most psychologically terrifying of all premises -- what happens when you can no longer trust not just the authorities but even your nearest and dearest?

Nightmares In A Damaged Brain

Link Here

Nightmares In A Damaged Brain is a 1981 US/Italy horror by Romano Scavolini
Starring Baird Stafford, Sharon Smith and C.J. Cooke BBFC link 2020 IMDb

Cut by the BBFC for X rated 1982 cinema release. Famously banned as a video nasty with the distributor being jailed. A cut US R rated version was released in the UK for an 18 rated 2002 DVD. In the US the Unrated 2011 Code Red version is slightly shortened in uncontroversial scenes but is the best available.

An uncut version, or as near as dammit, was released in the UK in November 2015 but was soon withdrawn presumably for a lack of BBFC paperwork. However the BBFC certificate was published shortly after and the DVD went back on sale.

The original UK cinema version was heavily cut by the BBFC with edits made to closeups of throat slitting and repeated stabs during the telephone murder, the pick axe killing, and axe blows (including blood frothing from a man's head) during the climactic flashback. The film was then listed and banned as an official video nasty, and a successful prosecution was brought against the distributing company World of Video 2000 in 1984 for releasing an unauthorized video version (which was 1 min longer than the cut cinema print). The film was finally granted a video certificate in 2002 though the print submitted was an edited U.S version, which restores the ice pick murder and around 1 minute of dialogue scenes but still has edits to the throat slashing/stabbing scene and some brief cuts to the climactic flashback nightmare murder.

Summary Notes

A mental patient embarks on a murder spree upon escaping from an institution.

UK: Uncut and BBFC 18 rated for strong bloody violence, horror, strong sex:

Promotional Material

It's been called "graphic and unapologetic" (SexGoreMutants), "brutally effective" (Screen Rant) and "a forgotten classic" (Horror News). It remains the most reviled, controversial, and misunderstood genre film of the '80s. Now "the most repulsive, degrading and horrifying movie ever made" (NY Daily News) can be experienced like never before: When a homicidal mental patient (an enduringly disturbing performance by Baird Stafford ) flees an experimental drug program, he'll leave a 5-day trail of psychosexual carnage from the peep shows of 42nd Street to the gore-soaked shores of Florida. Written and directed by Romano Scavolini , this "devastating masterpiece" (Cinefear) -- whose UK release as NIGHTMARES IN A DAMAGED BRAIN led to the imprisonment of distributor David Hamilton-Grant -- has been scanned from the internegative and various foreign print sources to create the most complete version ever assembled.

After wooing stewardess Yoriko (Chieko Matsubara, Tokyo Drifter), war photographer Hondo (Akira Kobayashi, Battles Without Honor and Humanity) sees her kidnapped by a team of deadly female assassins who use vinyl records as weapons. Investigating her whereabouts, Hondo uncovers a conspiracy to steal a buried stash of WWII-era gold.

Every bit as stylish and inventive as the wildest works by his mentor Seijun Suzuki, Yasuharu Hasebe's spy spoof is a gaudy 1960s pop delight that ranks with the likes of Joseph Losey's Modesty Blaise and Mario Bava's Danger: Diabolik!

A community struggles against immigrant gangs in the ruins of postwar Tokyo. Only doctor Amamiya (real-life ex-yakuza Noboru Ando) can save them, but he had enough fighting in the war. His pacifism is severely tested by the gangs' increasingly outrageous taunts and when his neighbours decide to take matters into their own hands, Amamiya is forced to take action. The consequences prove to be much more far-reaching than he could ever foresee. With a story spread across three time periods, Tai Kato's ambitious revision of the yakuza movie was one of the first films to tackle the taboo subject of Japan's Korean nationals, greatly influencing later directors such as Kinji Fukasaku and Takashi Miike.

Summary Notes

As an aging widower begins suffering from cardiac trouble, his greedy heirs hire a super-seductive nurse in the hopes of inducing a heart attack, but the plan backfires when she falls in love with him.

UK: Uncut and BBFC 18 rated:

Promotional Material

From the producers of 'Doctor Zhivago' comes a film that finally reveals URSULA ANDRESS in all her glory!

Voted the TOP BOND GIRL of all time, Ursula Andress made cinematic history when she emerged from the sea in that bikini. Not only was this iconic scene crowned "No1 of the 100 Greatest Sexy Screen-Moments" and earned Andress a Golden Globe, but it

heralded a new generation of women who wanted and expected more: the 'sexual revolution' had started.

Ever wondered what she looks like without that bikini? Well, wonder no more and reach for The Nurse! Andress stars as The Sensuous Nurse, spending most of this romp-com undressed.

Screen legend Jack Palance (City Slickers) plays an American tycoon aiming to buy a vineyard in the beautiful Italian Veneto. But the

hitch is that the aging owner won't sign, despite his madcap family's eagerness to sell and get rich.

The old man, recovering from a bonk-induced heart attack, is a randy lecher. So, the family's outrageous stratagem is to hire Nurse

Andress, not to cure the old boy, but for her to... ahem... undress and, hopefully, induce another - this time fatal - cardiac arrest.

It's all barmy, fizzy fun, and the clincher? A SECOND Bond Girl! Luciana Paluzzi, the one in skin-tight black leathers on the rocket launching motorbike in 'Thunderball'. Here without leathers. Or anything.

  • Complete and Uncut, restored from 2K scan

Tommy Olson (RJ Mitte) is seeing things again.

He can't make out what it is, just like what he told the police that one fateful night that deadly accident occurred. Tommy can't shake the thought of darkness following him since that night, and that there's someone moving in the shadow of his every step. Maybe that's why he's not performing so well in law school. That, or the fact his father, brilliant former defence attorney Dan Olson, is also his lecturer.

Tommy graduates and makes an effort to carve his own path believing this is the only way he can measure up. However, a dark force surrounds the Midwest suburb, and people from his past are reported dead by a mysterious killer, who is stalking them at random. The visions of deathly premonitions become stronger as Tommy's nightmares start to become a reality.
