    Vinegar Syndrome's Lost Picture Show

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Vinegar Syndrome was founded, in large part, to find, restore, and release lost and otherwise unavailable films. Although these past ten years have seen us grow and expand in all sorts of directions, our sprit and drive to uncover forgotten gems and oddities from the annals of genre cinema have never wavered. We are proud to present our most ambitious, audacious, and all around home video first, in honor of ten years of Vinegar Syndrome, we proudly present: VINEGAR SYNDROME’S LOST PICTURE SHOW, a ten-film collection of long-thought lost American genre films, all restored from their best-known and surviving elements. This wide-ranging collection covers genres from exploitation to horror to “kids” films to underground vanity projects, and a couple movies so weird they defy description! Included are: Oliver Drake’s forgotten proto-slasher, THE LAS VEGAS STRANGLER (aka No Tears For the Damned), Larry Crane's murder mystery/nudie, BEWARE THE BLACK WIDOW, Joe Sarno’s stirring seaside drama, DEEP INSIDE, Albert Zugsmith’s notorious bad-taste thriller, VIOLATED!, Walter Burn’s underground sexual freakout, BARBARA, James Newslow’s nuclear holocaust scare film, RED MIDNIGHT, Titus Moede’s ode to forgotten Americana, THE LAST OF THE AMERICAN HOBOES, Carlos Tobalina’s “erotic” morality tale, WHAT’S LOVE?, Charles Nizet’s sex and gore frenzy, THE SEX SERUM OF DR BLAKE (the original cut of Voodoo Heartbeat), and finally Donn Greer’s jaw dropping and unnerving, “kiddie film” and musical, THE RARE BLUE APES OF CANNIBAL ISLE (aka The Pirates of Cannibal Isle). What’s more is that this release also includes Elijah Drenner’s brand new, feature-length documentary AGAINST THE GRAIN, which examines how genre film focused home video companies have taken the charge in preserving, restoring, and releasing so many works which otherwise might have been lost to time.

    Vinegar Syndrome - Partner Label Releases

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. Vinegar Syndrome is a film restoration and distribution company with a catalogue of hundreds of feature films, produced primarily between the 1960s and 1990s. Our namesake is a constant reminder of what we’re fighting against. Simply put, the term ‘vinegar syndrome’ describes a chemical reaction that deteriorates motion picture film over time. Film preservation is a race against time, especially with long-neglected genres and underground films. In addition to the standard catalog of releases, Vinegar Syndrome also hosts a variety of partner labels including: Altered Innocence American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) Big World Pictures Canadian International Pictures (CIP) Circle Collective Culture Shock Dark Star Deaf Crocodile Dekanalog ETR Media Factory 25 Film Movement Fun City Editions Gunpowder & Sky Kani Music Box Selects Pulse Video Saturn's Core Subkultur USA Terror Vision Umbrella Entertainment Utopia VHSHitfest XYZ Films Yellow Veil Pictures Note, missing: Altered Innocence Vol. 1 Altered Innocence Vol. 2 Smut Without Smut: Satanic Horror Nite The Adam Rifkin Film Festival The Tortured Soul Trilogy Bloodfeast!: The Adventures of Sgt.

    Vinegar Syndrome - Forgotten Gialli

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. From Vinegar Syndrome: The giallo remains one of the most popular sub-genres in Italian and Spanish film history. But for all of the well-known and classic films the genre has spawned, so many others have been nearly impossible to enjoy since their theatrical debuts. Each entry in the 'Forgotten Gialli' series presents three rarities, rare in the English speaking world.

    Undercrank Productions: Accidentally Preserved

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. A collection of rare silent films put on DVD by Undercrank Productions. During the 1930s and 1940s companies like the Kodascope and Universal Show-At-Home libraries made 16mm copies of silent movies for people to rent and watch at home. It was like Netflix for the art deco era. Because these movies were on 16mm safety film, many of them have outlived the original 35mm nitrate prints of silent films that are now lost or extremely rare. It’s as if these movies were…Accidentally Preserved. Missing: The House of Wonders (ca. 1931) – Elgin Watch Company, 23 minutes How Jimmy Won the Game (1928) – Blasting Cap Safety, 14 min A Citrate Special (192?) – unidentified prank film Service a la Bunk (1921) – Bobby Ray / Tusun comedy Half a Hero (1929/30) – Weiss Bros Kidland Komedy with Billy Barty
  7. Kino Lorber Presents Forbidden Fruit: The Golden Age of the Exploitation Picture's icon

    Kino Lorber Presents Forbidden Fruit: The Golden Age of the Exploitation Picture

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. In the mid-1930s, when the Production Code tightened the leash on Hollywood’s Depression-era decadence, cagey entrepreneurs stepped in to fill the void, producing independent features on sub-Poverty Row budgets that fed audiences’ hunger for the illicit. While the Pre-Code films had demonstrated the art of nuance and the power of suggestion, exploitation films were ham-fisted exposés of a wide variety of hot-button issues, most frequently drug abuse and sex hygiene. By framing themselves as social problem films (almost always beginning with a lengthy title scroll stating their educational intent), exploitation films granted themselves a license to depict all the vices major studio films were forbidden to dramatize. Although vulgar by design and technically poor in execution, exploitation films occasionally surprise the viewer with moments of emotional poignance and a gleeful disregard for convention. In a period when independently-owned “Main Street” theaters were being choked out of business by the studio-owned theater chains, exploitation films provided a welcome injection of revenue, since these films could always be depended upon to attract a crowd, due to both the scandalous subject matter and the carnivalesque way in which they were promoted.

    IndieWire’s 35 Disturbing Foreign Films to Watch

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. World cinema has given us plenty of auteurs hell-bent on creating the most disturbing experience possible, from Pier Paolo Pasolini to Catherine Breillat, Gaspar Noe, and Takashi Miike. Below, IndieWire highlights a selection of foreign-language films likely to keep you up at night terrified, or thinking, or both. Leave it to any country except the U.S. to render the worst possible horrors, psychological, physical, and otherwise, onscreen in unflinching detail. While some of these films listed below are, in fact, outright horror films, others take a more psychic or spiritual approach to peeling back on society’s, and humankind’s, worst tendencies — or while querying war, faith, or sexuality. While many of the directors highlighted here made a personal brand out of pushing the limits of extreme storytelling, consider the below just a selection (or starter kit, if you will) to prime you for further viewing.

    21 Great Lo-Fi Sci-Fi Films You Need To Watch

    Favs/dislikes: 12:0. Lo-Fi Sci-Fi is an emerging genre of the last decade or so inspired by Mumblecore and budgetary constraints. The name is derived from ‘Low Fidelity’ and ‘Science Fiction’, seemingly meant to convey the low budget, amateur approach of filming a Science Fiction movie. This is not to dumb down the genre at all but portray its indie status devoid of any Hollywood blockbuster characteristics that many contemporary Science Fiction films have. New Sci-Fi cinema has unfortunately began to suffer in thematic substance and has been generally made for commercial mass audiences with an ‘artistic’ endeavor to make it big at the box office. The films of this emanating underground genre have similar, but at the same time, completely disparate themes and elements, which can make this genre hard to exactly pin down. As there is no definitive manifesto written on Lo-Fi Sci-Fi, characteristics such as a shoestring budget or outer space themes do not necessarily have to be abided by; this is no Dogme 95, yet. This list is a collection of Science Fiction films, not your generic blockbuster ones, these films are far more interesting, obscure, philosophical, mind bending and often intelligent. Please comment below with any suggestions of films you may feel fit this genre. Apologies if I missed out on any but this is simply a list of 21 of them.

    Top 10 Movies That Take Place in Real Time

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. There’s something so thrilling about watching a story unfold in real time. If done right, filmmakers can use time not as a source of manipulation, but as a vehicle for organic suspense. Many of the films below are tense sensations, others chose a more conversational approach to their story, but all of them unfolded in real time to great effect. Note: Yes, most “real time” films do cheat a little here and there, but the 10 below come as close as possible to keeping it real.

    20 Great Obscure Movies You Probably Have Never Seen

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. There are many “movies you probably have never seen” lists online, we also feature some on our site. It’s hard to tell if a movie is really seen by very few people, but this time we are almost certain that you haven’t seen, or even heard the 20 movies on this list. Why? Because most of them are so obscure that you can only find them on VHS or unknown dvd labels, but they might be better than most of the movies you have ever seen, that’s the reason we make a list specially to recommend them. If you have seen half of these, consider yourself a real movie buff. Read more at

    Essential Japanese New Wave Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. Out of all the “new waves” that sprung up around the world in the wake of France’s revolutionary Nouvelle Vague in the 1960s, perhaps none was as explosive — politically, morally and aesthetically — and offered such a thorough repudiation of what had come before, as Japan’s Nuberu Bagu. While Nagisa Oshima and Shohei Imamura remain far and away the best-known directors associated with this movement, many other filmmakers have been unfairly lurking in their shadows for too long. I therefore limited myself to one title per director in this list of what I consider a dozen essential Japanese New Wave movies.
