    I know it's a hot mess, but I always liked Carnival of Blood. How bad are the other 2 films in the Blood-A-Rama triple feature?

    Honestly, I failed to make it through both of the other two. Night of the Strangler didn't even get to what it was about before I lost interest, but I think it was something with racism. If you like Carnival of Blood and don't have the set yet, get it for that movie alone. It's not much of a recommendation, but it was the only one I stuck with till the end.

    Don't know why any of those would be out of stock....

    The only one that will eventually sell out is Creature w/slip, and the days of them running out of slip copies on Black Friday are long gone; they're making 8-10k of them now, not 1000

    They're removed from the website during December (partner releases only), so they're kind of out of stock right now.

    They made 8,000 of the Creature Slipcovers, so it'll probably be quite a while before it actually sells out...

    Apparently the hysteria continues commentary for creature was edited for content by MGM? I hope the uncut track becomes available

    VS also sent out an email earlier which gives a $6 coupon due to the Flesh for Frankenstein issue. It's tied to your email address though, so if you didn't order it direct from them... no coupon.

    Here is the email:

    You are receiving this message because you ordered our recent FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN release from VinegarSyndrome.com. Due to a technical issue related to the UHD disc (see below), we have initiated a replacement program. Since you ordered directly from us, you will automatically be receiving the corrected UHD disc in late January. Unless your shipping address has recently changed, there is no reason to contact us.

    To make up for this unfortunate error, we are issuing single-use $6 coupons to VinegarSyndrome.com. This coupon is valid now through March 31st for any Vinegar Syndrome related video product (VS, VSA, VSP, VSU, Peekarama). The code will not work on Partner Label products or merchandise. The code is also tied to your email address, so it is only valid for Flesh For Frankenstein customers. The $6 coupon code is: flesh6

    Thank you everyone and have a Happy New Year!

    ~ Team VS

    --- technical info ---

    Some customers have experienced playback issues with the UHD disc of Flesh For Frankenstein. This issue has resulted in certain players and TVs presenting the film with exaggerated color saturation which is inaccurate to the intended presentation. We have determined the cause of this and are currently re-authoring the disc to ensure universal playability. The BDs are not affected.

    And remember, there will almost certainly be a smut sale on Valentine's Day. Save your coupon and boners for that.

    Really, is there anyone on this board that can hold off on the later for a whole month and a half?

    You ask too much of us, man.

    New stuff is up now, very excited to see that Culture Shock is a new partner label and they're releasing Girlfriend From Hell in January. I didn't know that was coming so soon.

    Culture Shock becoming a partner label makes my life so much easier, as I was planning on getting Girlfriend From Hell and The American Scream anyway.

    Added the following three to my monthly subscription:
    Girlfriend From Hell
    Koko-Di Koko-Da
    Fortress Of Amerikkka


    Had Killing Spree in my shopping cart, but wow they're overcharging on that one. Even after subscriber discounts, it's $25. Sinistre sounds intriguing, as do the AGFA nudie proto-slashers, but will wait for reviews on those. Finally, Canadian International Pictures sounds like an exciting partner label, but I don't think The Ernie Game is for me. Excited for what else they have in store though.

    It's not as overpriced as the lousy SRS Cinema release was, back in 2015; $35 + 3.50 s/h. It looks like they still haven't located film elements, but a decent encode, alone, would be a substantial upgrade.

    I'm thrilled that Killing Spree is finally getting a "good" release from Terror Vision. It's one of my favorite films, and I pretty much still own every single release since VHS. The old SRS Blu-ray had one of the shittiest encodes and bit-rates ever... so it wouldn't take much to improve on that. It was shot on film, but edited on video... and the 16mm film negatives are probably pretty much lost or were destroyed by the processing lab for non-payment (if I remember correctly).

    Girlfriend From Hell is also a no-brainer, and the Slip looks gorgeous. It's good that Culture Shock is now on the Partner Labels roster.

    One partner release that I definitely have absolutely no interest in is Koko-di Koko-da. I streamed that maybe 6 months ago and it was so utterly boring that I just couldn't even finish it. It's truly bad when I can't even sit through a film until the end. I usually give anything the benefit of the doubt. It's was literally just the same "scene" that plays over and over again with only subtle differences. I fast-forwarded through it...and it was just much of the same. The characters were fucking annoying as hell, and it makes little sense. Yeah, I get that it's basically an "art film" trying to do a profound Groundhog Day, but I'd rather stare at a blank wall for 90 minutes than try to watch it again. And I am a BIG lover of Scandinavian cinema too.

    I thought about getting Dead Heat. Then I saw the $34.99 price and closed the site. It's good, but it's not that good.

    Yeah that my only issue with VS. They have some great releases but I find it very difficult to pull the trigger most of the time due to prices.

    Can anyone here sell me on the shot-on-video Sinistre or the AGFA nudie-cutie proto-slasher double feature of The Monster Of Camp Sunshine/Honeymoon Of Terror?

    Both sound intriguing, but I'm a bit picky when it comes to SOV and a lot of the AGFA / Something Weird titles are movies I'd watch once but don't necessarily care to own.

    I saw Sinistre many years ago on VHS... it was actually filmed not too far away from here in Missouri. I honestly don't remember too much about it anymore, other than it started with a failed bank heist, and then they somehow get to a deserted house that was once the scene of a multiple axe murder. I do recall it being decent for an almost no-budget SOV, but very dark with minimal lighting. Maybe it will look better upscaled on Blu-ray, who knows.

    I haven't seen the AGFA ones.
