Shriek of the Mutilated Available August 30

Anthropology professor, Dr. Prell, has invited his class to a remote cabin in the mountains to research the mythical Abominable Snowman. Soon after they arrive, strange events begin to befall the students, including sightings of a huge, white, furry creature. When several members of the group go missing, only to be discovered dead; their bodies horribly mangled, fears mount that the legendary monster is very real and out for blood… but is everything as simple as it appears?

Low-rent gore, bizarre twists, and one of the strangest looking versions of Bigfoot in cinema history, Michael Findlay’s (The Touch of Her Flesh, Snuff) Shriek of the Mutilated has earned, and lives up to, its reputation as one of the quintessential pieces of early 70s drive-in filmmaking. Produced and co-written by Ed Adlum (Invasion of the Blood Farmers) and photographed by Roberta Findlay (Tenement), Vinegar Syndrome is excited to bring this 42nd St classic to Blu-ray, in its fully uncensored and un-tampered with, original version, newly restored in 4K from its recently unearthed 35mm camera negative.

STARRING: Alan Brock, Jennifer Stock, Tawm Ellis, Ed Adlum

Satan’s Children (1975) Available August 30

Made by one-and-done filmmakers in the shadows of Tampa, Satan’s Children feels like an Afterschool Special from depths of hell… literally. Bobby is a troubled teen with problems. After deflecting his father’s insults and his stepsister’s come-ons, Bobby unknowingly ends up at a gay bar. Before long, he’s assaulted by four guys in the back seat of a car. With nowhere else to turn, Bobby joins a cult of Satanists to enact his murderous revenge. A truly deranged gut-punch, this is a gritty and baffling horror experience that could have only happened in Florida. AGFA + Something Weird are thrilled to present a 2K preservation of Satan’s Children from the only known 35mm theatrical print in existence.

STARRING: Stephen White, Eldon Mecham, Joyce Molloy

Faceless (1987) 2-Disc Special Edition (4K Ultra HD) Available August 30

IF THERE IS BUT ONE LIFE, THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO DIE.

For his 1988 big-budget EuroSleaze classic inspired by Eyes Without A Face, director Jess Franco brought together an international all-star cast – including Helmut Berger (The Damned), Brigitte Lahaie (The Female Executioner), Chris Mitchum (Summertime Killer), Stéphane Audran (Coup De Torchon), Caroline Munro (Maniac) and Telly Savalas – for a glossily depraved tale of disfigurement, dismemberment, libidinous brutes, Nazi surgeons, Parisian discos, face-ripping, throat-stabbing, eyeball-piercing and what may be Uncle Jess’ most rewardingly ambiguous ending ever. Anton Diffring (Circus Of Horrors) and Florence Guérin (Caligula & Messalina) co-star – with appearances by Howard Vernon (The Awful Dr. Orloff) and Lina Romay – in this unapologetically graphic shocker, now scanned for the first time in 4K from the original negative with all-new Special Features.

Two-disc set includes the American 4K Ultra HD premiere and remastered HD Blu-ray.

STARRING: Helmut Berger, Brigitte Lahaie, Chris Mitchum, Caroline Munro, Telly Savalas
