    The Corruption of Chris Miller (Slipcover)

    This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 2,000 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

    Chris Miller (former Spanish child star, Marisol) lives with her stepmother Ruth (Jean Seberg; Breathless) in a large secluded mansion in the countryside. Both women have been traumatized by the mysterious disappearance of Chris’ father but their isolation is soon interrupted by the arrival of a mysterious young drifter, Barney (Barry Stokes; Prey), who they take on as a handyman. All the while, an unknown scythe wielding killer has been stalking the area, leaving an ever growing body count, and it’s not long before the women grow increasingly suspicious of Barney…

    A bloody and twist filled giallo from acclaimed filmmaker Juan Antonio Bardem (Death of a Cyclist), THE CORRUPTION OF CHRIS MILLER has remained one of the hardest to see of all Spanish produced gialli. Lushly photographed by Juan Gelpí (Crypt of the Living Dead) and scored by Waldo de los Ríos (House That Screamed), Vinegar Syndrome is proud to present this under-seen masterpiece of early 70s Euro horror in a brand new 4k restoration and in its original scope framing, for the first time on home video.

    Darkroom (Slipcover)

    This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Derek Gabryszak) is limited to 1,500 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

    Janet has just returned home from college to visit her conservative family at their remote farmhouse, nestled deep in the countryside. What should be a happy reunion is quickly disrupted by the arrival of an unexpected guest: a mystery killer who photographs their unsuspecting victims before murdering them in a variety of brutal ways. As her family and friends are picked off one by one, Janet is forced to fend off the mysterious maniac, all the while uncovering unsettling secrets surrounding her family’s violent and perverse past…

    An indulgently sleazy and creative American take on the giallo, as filtered through an 80’s slasher film structure, Terrence O’Hara’s DARKROOM is a suspenseful and red herring filled murder mystery. Featuring stylish photography from David Makin and increasingly nasty kills, Vinegar Syndrome brings DARKROOM to Blu-ray for the first time, sporting a fresh 4k restoration of its original camera negative and new interviews with its stars.

    directed by: Terrence O’Hara
    starring: Aarin Teich, Jill Pierce, Jeff Arbaugh, Sara Lee Wade

    Grandmother’s House (Slipcover)

    This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 1,500 units and is only available here at VinegarSyndrome.com!

    David and Lynn have just lost their father. Now orphaned, the youngsters are sent to live with their grandparents in a beautiful victorian mansion. But no sooner than boarding the coach bus scheduled to take them to their new home do strange things start to occur, initially in the form of a mysterious woman who seems to appear and disappear in the blink of an eye. It’s not long, however, before murdered bodies are found in the area and, to make matters worse, David becomes increasingly fearful that his doting grandparents might be involved in the killings.

    Mixing the visual flair of a gothic horror film with a murder thriller, Peter Rader’s (Waterworld) directorial debut, GRANDMOTHER’S HOUSE stars Eric Foster (Cry Wilderness), Kim Valentine (Dot Com for Murder), Ida Lee (Vegas in Space), Len Lesser (Seinfeld) and Brinke Stevens (Nightmare Sisters). Written and photographed by acclaimed steadicam operator Peter Jensen and produced by Nico Mastorakis (Island of Death), GRANDMOTHER’S HOUSE is a late period exploitation-horror classic that comes to Blu-ray for the first time, newly restored in 4k from its original camera negative.

    I dont know if this has been covered at all in this thread, but a couple times a year Family Video has sales on VS material. I got The Undertaker, Nightmare Weekend, and Witchtrap for $16 a piece. That was when they were going for, I think, $26 at the time. I'm waiting for Incubus and Blood Harvest to go on sale. If you give them your email, they will send out notices.

    Looks great on it's own but especially more when you consider how it's looked every other time I saw it. A lot of the sex scenes seemed a lot longer and there was penetration so you can definitely notice a difference between this and all the other versions, content-wise. Another miraculous release from Vinegar Syndrome!

    I've just watched the 'Mausoleum' blu, WOW what a print, some scenes look like they were filmed today, there are a few blemishes here and there and the titles look ropey, but it's leaps and bounds above anything previously seen, also nice to see it fully uncut.

    As for the film, it's not a great movie per se, but it is cheesy movie heaven, the film has demon chest eating tits for christ sake, what's not to love.

    Good work Vinegar syndrome.

    Finally opened my blu-ray and watched it tonight. Here is the alternate cover:

    IMG_20190325_014922.jpg

    Worth mentioning, this takes place on April 1st if anyone is looking for an alternative to the usual April Fool's Day, Slaughter High, or Killer Party this year.

    Besides the sole "April 1, 1973" shown in the text at the beginning though, the movie really has nothing to do with the day otherwise.

    I watched the disc the other night, and the transfer easily beats the 88 Films Blu-ray. That transfer was already pretty solid when compared to the ancient Elite DVD, but the VS transfer is the best by far.

    I recently rewatched The Suckling and, due to a better transfer or knowing what it's about or just the inclusion of subtitles, I liked it better than a year or so ago with the 88 Films disc.

    Though I still feel it doesn't really deliver on its premise, I could appreciate the dialogue and situations in the group of survivors more this time.
