Monday News Roundup: New Blu-Rays from Vinegar Syndrome & More

Vinegar Syndrome has announced they’ll have four new Blu-Rays and a DVD out this month (which has only one day left, yes, I know). They are:

unnamedDon’t Answer the Phone!, in an all-new 4k restoration from the original 35mm negative (plus director’s commentary, isolated soundtrack, liner notes, and more)!
Blue Money, fully uncut for the first time ever!
Blood Mania + Point of Terror double-feature Blu-Ray, featuring a bonus DVD containing the alternate & super-rare TV versions in the first 3,000 units sold!
Taboo 4, the best and bleakest film in the series newly restored from the original negative!
And, on DVD, Fred Lincoln’s sleaze classic, A Place Beyond Shame, newly restored from the original negative.

unnamed (6)You can buy them here. Also, you can pre-order the February package until Wednesday, 2/1, so get on that now. It contains classics like Slaughterhouse and Babyface by Alex deRenzy. To check it all out and get it at an incredible steal, act fast and go here now.

Looking ahead, you’ll be able to find Kevin Tenney’s Witchtrap and sexploitation favorite China Girl starring Annette Haven in March, and Psycho Cop Returns will be available on Vinegar Syndrome later this spring. And of course, you can always get more movies over at, like Santa Sangre.

Finally, they’d like to remind you it’s almost convention season, and unnamed (7)here’s a handy lineup of things I’d like to attend but probably won’t make it to this year:

Feb 3-5:             Days of the Dead (Atlanta)
Feb 25-26:         Rhode Island Terror Con (Providence) 
March 10-12:     Monster Mania (Cherry Hill, NJ)
March 17-19:     Horror Hound,   (Cincinnati, OH)  
April 7-9:            Cinema Wasteland (Strongsville, OH)
April 7-9:            Monsterpalooza (Pasadena, CA)
April 21-23:        Spooky Empire (Orlando, Florida)
April 28-30:        Chiller (Parsippany, NJ)
May 5-7:            Texas Frightmare (Dallas, Texas)
May 5-7:            Crypticon  (Seattle, WA)

Moving on, just a quick reminder that Havenhurst starring Danielle Harris and Julie Benz will be doing a limited theater run and will be available nationwide on cable VOD and Digital HD on February 10th. You can read more about that in my original announcement.

And finally, Jared Masters had a new movie coming out. This one’s called Absolute Vow and is described as a “bloody sword-and-sandal epic.” I can’t make this stuff up. Here’s the synopsis (or sort of, the best one I can get right now):

Absolute Vow Poster ALL CHARACTERS COLOR LRG“One thousand years before Christ, in an age where pagans ran rampant… Incest and child sacrifices were common place, for false gods that consumed the minds of many wicked men, until the shocking story of a virgin … without a name, made its way into the Holy Canon, and now, fully embellished for the first time, by the Sultan of Sensationalism, Jared Masters.

The strangest story in the Bible is finally fleshed out, into a new kind of cinematic experience, starring Parker Love Bowling and her big sister, Kansas, plus Andy Dick’s daughter, Meg, Michael Madsen’s son, Kal, and the infamous Lloyd Kaufman…. The true tale of a mighty warrior. Will he kill his only daughter?”

Giant cast list: This motion picture stars Parker Love Bowling, as the Virgin without a name, with Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger), Kansas Bowling (B.C. Butcher), Aki Aleong (Pound of Flesh), Art Roberts (8 Reels of Sewage), Rodney Bingenheimer (Mayor of the Sunset Strip), Dallas Chandler (Ballet of Blood), Marley Uribe (Cupcake), Meg Dick (Roller Junkies), Kalvin Madsen (Now Here), Walter Hochbrueckner (Love Carries), Dannah Hooper, and a lot of other people.

Take a look at the trailer:

I'm a regular contributing writer to this website. I got into horror movies through the sci-fi monster films I watched with my dad as a kid (ex. Aliens) and the extreme amounts of zombie movies I spent a good portion of my college career watching. I absolutely love zombies (obviously), am a sucker for a low budget (or any) monster movie, and adore horror-comedy films. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley is one of my favorite books, and I'm still waiting for an actually decent film adaptation to bring that fantastic novel to life. Outside of my life as a horror fan, I'm a writer and editor with dreams of turning my screenplays into movies and a love of wine and murder mysteries.
