    Another exclusive from my Cinema Arcana FB Page:

    “It’s a fight to the death with a slimy mutation!” Rolfe Kanefsky’s meta-horror fan favorite THERE’S NOTHING OUT THERE (1991) gets a fresh 2K makeover this January from the cine-psychos at Vinegar Syndrome!

    A group of college kids head to a remote cabin for Spring Break, planning to drink some beer, have some fun and hopefully hook up. Naturally, the lone horror fan among them notices a few telltale signs of trouble—abandoned cars, disappearing meals, trails of green slime—but his friends refuse to listen, instead opting for isolated hikes in the woods and wholly necessary skinny-dipping sessions. However, they’ll soon need his help and genre expertise when their wild weekend party is crashed by an amphibious alien with ambitious plans of cross-culture reproduction.

    A surprisingly fun indie effort that hit rental store shelves when you could still physically browse them, THERE’S NOTHING OUT THERE quickly gained acclaim in the pages of Fangoria and similar rags due to its at-the-time unique take of transplanting a knowledgeable cinephile into the mix to handily point out the clichés and absurdities its characters were blindly traipsing through – including some inspired fourth wall breaking and an extremely memorable bit where one potential victim swings out of danger using a conveniently located piece of recording equipment.

    Previously released on DVD by both Image Entertainment and Troma, Vinegar Syndrome bring the film to Blu in high style, starting off with a brand new 2K restoration from the original interpositive. All of the existing extras will be carried over—intros, a pair of cast and crew commentary tracks, pre-production and behind-the-scenes footage, audition tapes, test shots, short films and tons more—but if that’s not enough, the company have also added two new supplements sure to appeal to fans. First, we get a fresh audio commentary featuring Kanefsky, cult director Joe Lynch and FINAL DESTINATION creator Jeff Riddick, covering the title with the added benefit of hindsight. Second, and much more excitingly, we’re treated to a career-spanning interview with producer / editor Victor Kanefsky, best known for his work on Bill Gunn’s GANJA & HESS (1973) and his collaborations with Joel M. Reed, most notably BLOODSUCKING FREAKS (1975). Its inclusion alone should be a major point of interest for readers of this page.

    Street date is currently set for January 29th. Previously announced 2019 titles from Vinegar Syndrome include Lee Frost’s adult roughie A CLIMAX OF BLUE POWER (1975), Greydon Clark’s goofball slasher spoof WACKO (1982), and the Blu debut of Clark’s killer-kitty-on-a-cruise classic UNINVITED (1988), now with extra grue and a long-lost alternate ending! Be sure to check out Vinegar Syndrome’s upcoming Black Friday sale, featuring a pair of must-have limited editions, yearly subscriptions, and plenty more – and watch this space for further details!

    It was a struggle but I managed to place my order for the yearly package. So excited for The Children and Mausoleum. I tried watching Wacko on Amazon Prime a while back, though, and couldn't get through it.

    I've been trying for 90 minutes to order three things. I'm going to sleep. If stuff is sold out when I wake up, it's sold out.

    Hate to be that guy. But all of these prices for the older stuff resemble DD prices I've picked up through the year. Not really any deals here. What am I missing?

    And on the new releases like Incubus and Blood Harvest. Even with the $5 coupon and free shipping. They are still $8 bucks more just to get slips.

    Picked up Cutting Class and Ice Cream Man (gotta watch that Monstervision episode on the disc). Website issues were a hassle, but eventually got through.

    Yeah, that's a tough one. To save about a buck per title (compared to picking them up at DD) and not knowing what they are. I don't know.

    Like take Cutting Class for example. $25 and the slips are really not good at all. I'll wait and get it without at DD for $15-$16.

    Gutted it's Mausoleum, to get this to UK is going to cost me $51, I can't justify that amount for this, I want it, not that much, can't believe this was not a regular release title.

    Does anyone understand why The Incubus is already out of stock? After watching a bunch of Cassavetes films recently, I have an overpowering desire to hear him drone on endlessly about semen.

    I was underwhelmed with most of the other boutique label offerings this year, so it all went to Vinegar Syndrome. Cost me $325, but I plugged a lot of holes in my collection.

    I realized I was missing two of their earliest blu-rays, so I grabbed Massage Parlor Murders and Good Luck Miss Wyckoff in addition to my 2019 annual subscription. Aside from those, I'm all caught up.

    So excited for Unmasked Part 25, but the year long wait will be a killer!
