FYI ... VS store is opening in 45 minutes...........(and counting)
It is worth noting that both flesh eating mothers and zombie island massacre are on amazon Prime in what appear to be pretty good prints, at least for flesh eating mothers. Zombie Island massacre is a watchable VHS rip
I did a little double feature of my Black Friday haul last night.
Started with Raw Force. Despite my disdain for "cheese", this was a lot of fun. There were a few groan-worthy bits, like the sudden appearances of a cake or plates of spaghetti so they could make the inevitable face smash. It'll bring out your inner Crow T. Robot as there's plenty of fodder for riffing, but manages to avoid the utter terrible-ness of say, Miami Connection. Also had to re-watch the party scene, as the closing credits revealed it was Camille "I Spit on Your Grave's Jennifer Hill" Keaton in the awkward bathroom scene. Line of the movie: "Don't touch that, Harry. It'll give you the creeping crud."
Followed it with A Climax of Blue Power. Another porn movie that manages to use sex scenes to advance the story, and also one of the closer instances of a porn movie venturing into horror. Not bad at all, though I probably wouldn't watch it with my dad.
I purchased A Climax of Blue Power because a few members here said it reminded them of Taxi Driver. Personally I found it pretty boring. I wasn't sure what the point of the sex was either when they used body double quite frequently.
I can see the Taxi Driver comparison; it's about a psycho loner with delusions of grandeur. As for a "point", well, at the end of the day it's still a PORN movie. The point is to show people fucking. But only the scene where he gets double-teamed in the massage parlor seems irrelevant. They'd already established that he uses his fake badge to abuse prostitutes. But I have to admit I wanted to see how the story ended. Exactly what Jack Horner aspired to in his diner speech in Boogie Nights.
You weren't lying! So much fun. Didn't realize Psycho Cop was Bob Vance, from Vance refrigeration.
Watched Tammy and the T Rex this evening, WTF!!! Words cannot describe this, no idea how this could ever be conceived and created!!!!!!
From VinSyn's Facebook page earlier today:
"A decent number of Blu-ray discs from our Hard Soap, Hard Soap / Disco Lady release have a manufacturing issue that causes playback problems during the film Hard Soap, Hard Soap between the 20-40min mark.
Due to this issue, we are temporarily halting sales while our replicator represses the disc. If you are one of the unlucky ones who received a faulty Blu-ray, please email 'firstname.lastname@example.org' with the subject 'Hard Soap replacement' and we will send out a new Blu-ray disc as soon as possible. Thank you and sorry for the issue!
DVDBeaver reviews the 4k UHD for Tammy and the T-Rex: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film3/blu-ray_reviews56/tammy_and_the_t-rex_4K_UHD_blu-ray.htm
Showtime is currently airing the "gore version" of Tammy.
Yeah, it's crazy, and Denise Richards is really hot, but there's no reason I'd want this movie in my collection.
I swear, every time a movie in announced on Blu-ray that hasn't be out before, sure enough it pops up on a premium channel shorty before or after.
I was surprised to see it on there, it played twice in a day, don't think it's been on since, is showtime PPV channels?
Showtime must have a partnership with VS; They're also running Cutting Class in rotation, and afterwards the Vinegar Syndrome logo and "bow-chicka-wow-wow" tune is played)
Yeah I agree. I've watched an hour of it and it was only mindly entertaining to me.

If it were the '90s, you'd be seeing Tammy & The T-Rex on the USA network daily. Only minus the gore.
They also played Ticks and The Paperboy constantly. It was perfect.
You know what would be perfect? If someone would give Ticks the special edition treatment it deserves. You know Panic is down for some interviews and what not......Alfonso dont say no to a paycheck!
As someone in the US who has never bought a British videotape, should I be interested in the 2+ hour VIPCO documentary included on the Spookies blu-ray? Is it worth the time?
I haven't checked it out yet (I do still plan to) but have heard a few comments from people who have watched it from the VS Facebook group that it isn't the best put-together or structured and runs much longer than it needs to.
A couple comments from the group about it to give you an idea:
"...do we really need an hour of VHS collectors saying the same things about bad quality masters, Michael Lee not understanding DVD, and their long-winded and irrelevant experiences with video nasties?"
"It's not really well put together with much rhyme or reason. One interview[ee] is talking at length about one subject, but the next cut is to someone else talking about something entirely different. It feels more like watching someone's assembly of what clips they want to use for a documentary than a finished product. I'm assuming this was the only way VS could get an interview with the infamous Michael Lee included. And it is indeed worth slogging through to hear him speak and get a better idea of what type of person he is. But the other subjects... wow. You'll spend more time looking at the shelves in the background of their shots."
"I was expecting a more traditional doc on VIPCO but it was just random people (talking heads, no less) musing about the glory days of bootleg VHS."
So if you have no interest in VHS collection, bootlegs, VIPCO or it's founder Michael Lee, then I'd say no.
