      My favourite of theirs, definitely. THE LOST FILMS OF HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS was another I was very pleased to have. PIGS was very good too. I've yet to watch my copy of DOLEMITE but I'm glad to have it on BD.

      • Corruption is great and a film that really deserved the blu ray treatment so that's my pick.

          yeah Corruption seems popular. For some reason I couldn't warm to it, but I've only ever seen it once. At least I have the Blu-ray so it may go up in my estimation on repeated viewings

          • From FB:

            "Hey everyone, here's what's happening. We've decided to take our 'break month' in June this year. No releases in June, but a full slate through December this year.

            Taking June off doesn't mean we'll be releasing less films in 2016. In fact, it means that we'll end up doing more! And, unlike the last couple years where we took December off, this year December is fully loaded, including a Blu-ray of an appropriately themed horror title. As it currently stands, between July and December, another 30 individual releases are planned, which will total roughly 50 more films (taking into account double features and a box set). And, to avoid any confusion, yearly package subscribers will be 100% covered for all films released in 2016, including December titles. As always, you'll be able to renew/sign up for the 2017 package in November.

            Great news is the May titles will start shipping out tomorrow! Also, this Friday is the beginning of our "Halfway to Black Friday" sale, which includes 50% off most releases and our discounted 6 month package (July - December titles included)!

            Thank you everyone for your continued support in helping us release even wilder and weirder films!"
            Rock! Shock! Pop!

              I couldn't get into it either, seemed like it as trying to be too clever for its own good. And the editing and continuity was rubbish. As for the exotic dancer, she was great but kept her knickers on the whole time. It is a porno for gawds sake!

                    • I never saw The Candy Tangerine Man, but it sounds pretty interesting, I think I'd like this one. Hey Vinegar Syndrome, I just had a desire to see a movie released by you after watching your dvd I have of Cry Wilderness/In Search of Bigfoot. I wish you could do a dvd or blu ray of The Legend of Boggy Creek. That movie has never had a good release on DVD even, the DVD I have sucks it's a VHS Rip, ithat movie needs a real release.

                      • That cover art for Candy Tangerine Man is superb. VS have been doing a great job with their covers lately.

                        • July titles are now up for pre-order on the VS site.

                          Rudy Ray Moore is Petey Wheatstraw, whose talent for comedy is only topped by his gift for Kung-Fu. When his arch rivals, Leroy and Skillet, massacre him and his friends, Petey ends up in Hell and is given a unique opportunity: in exchange for his and his friends' return to earth, he must wed Satan's daughter. The only problem: she's the ugliest woman he's ever seen! Will Petey be able to defeat Satan with his magic pimp cane or will he be forced to become the Devil's son-in-law?

                          Rudy Ray Moore's third theatrical feature, PETEY WHEATSTRAW is a raucous and ridiculous blending of action, horror, and Moore's signature brand of raunchy humor. Written and directed by Cliff Roquemore, PETEY is perhaps the craziest of all of Moore's films and is coming to Blu-ray for the first time, newly restored in 2k from its original 35mm camera negative.

                          • One of the most diverse of all genre filmmakers, whose career included everything from horror to kiddie films, Vinegar Syndrome presents two of Matt Cimber's most important blaxploitation classics on Blu-ray for the very first time.

                            John Daniels is 'The Baron,' a no-nonsense pimp who cruises the streets in his signature tangerine Rolls Royce. Taking on rival pimps, pushers, and the man, Baron uses his cunning intelligence to elude the authorities in Matt Cimber's grim and subversive look at the violent underbelly of Los Angeles crime and corruption. A favorite film of Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson, Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents THE CANDY TANGERINE MAN in its Blu-ray debut.

                            Lola Falana is LADY COCOA, in Matt Cimber's classic 1975 crime thriller. After being given a 24-hour leave from prison, in exchange for which she'll agree to testify against her mobster boyfriend, Cocoa hits the streets, but quickly discovers that violence lurks around every corner. Co-starring Millie Perkins and George Flower, Lady Cocoa is a non-stop thrill ride of revenge.

                            Directed by: Matt Cimber
                            1974-1975 / 183 minutes (combined) / Color / 1.85:1

                            Features Include:
                            • Region free Blu-ray and DVD combo pack.

                            • Scanned and restored in 2k from 35mm archival prints

                            • Enter the sinister world of corporate greed, where wealthy men use and abuse beautiful women for their sadistic and perverse pleasures.

                              Jill's (Tish Ambrose) life has been reduced to nothing more than an on-call prostitute, charged with taking care of the other girls in the corporation's illicit harem. But as her secret pen pal relationship with Winston, a mild mannered park ranger with a violent past, grows into something more sensual, Jill begins to realize that with Winston's help, she may be able to destroy the evil empire holding her hostage…

                              • After leaving New York for San Francisco, acclaimed filmmaker and artist Wakefield Poole (Bijou, Boys In The Sand) set out to create a unique cinematic vision of male sexuality, combining documentary, performance art, and cinema verite filmmaking techniques, which resulted in one of the most distinctive works of all-male cinema of the 1970s: TAKE ONE.

                                In It, Poole explores the fantasies of a group of men, having them articulate their desires to the camera, then allowing them to live them out in elegant, abstract, and experimental scenes unlike any others in his diverse filmography. Using only friends and acquaintances as subjects, Poole creates a film that is as introspective to sexual desire as it is erotic.

                                Vinegar Syndrome presents TAKE ONE, restored in 2k from the best known surviving elements and presented in its Director's Cut. Also included is Poole's notorious 1974 loop feature, MOVING!, which has been newly restored from its original 16mm negative and is coming to DVD fully uncut.
