Ginger Snaps Trilogy (Import) Available August 26

Ginger Snaps: Fifteen-year-old Brigitte Fitzgerald (Emily Perkins) and her nearly sixteen-year-old sister Ginger (Katharine Isabelle), are a team – best friends and self-styled outcasts. Obsessed with dying and bound by a childhood pact to stay together forever, they loathe their mind-numbing existence in the suburb of Bailey Downs. One night, the two girls are heading through the woods when Ginger is savagely attacked by a wild creature. Ginger survives as her horrible wounds miraculously heal over, but something is not quite right. Ginger is irritable and in denial. But to Brigitte it is obvious that a terrifying force has taken hold of her sister. She’s convinced that the insatiable craving her sister is experiencing can mean only one thing – Ginger is becoming something unspeakable and monstrous.

Ginger Snaps Ii: Unleashed: Following the events of the first film, Brigitte flees the suburbs of Bailey Downs, away from a fierce lycanthropic creature stalking her, to a drug rehabilitation clinic run by Alice Seversen (Janet Kidder), a street-smart former addict. There, she meets the handsome but immoral orderly Tyler (Eric Johnson), and 14-year-old Miranda (Tatiana Maslany), known to all as Ghost. When people start to die in the clinic, she knows the creature has found her again…

Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning: In the 19th century the Fitzgerald sisters, Ginger and Brigitte, take refuge at Fort Bailey, home of the Northern Legion Trading Company. But the ground is cursed, and no one leaves for fear of the monstrous beasts lurking in the area. Now, Ginger and Brigitte’s vow to stay “together, forever” gets tested as one of the sisters slowly slips into a darkening fate.

STARRING: Kristopher Lemche, Emily Perkins, Katharine Isabelle, Kris Lemche, Jesse Moss

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.

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

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.

Neptune Frost (2021) Available August 9

Multidisciplinary artists Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman bring their unique dynamism to the Afrofuturist vision of Neptune Frost. It is a sci-fi-punk-musical that’s a visually wondrous amalgamation of themes, ideas, and songs that they have been exploring in their work, including on Williams’ 2016 album MartyrLoserKing. Neptune Frost takes place in the hilltops of Burundi, where a group of escaped coltan miners form an anti-colonialist computer hacker collective. From their camp in an otherworldly e-waste dump, they attempt a takeover of the authoritarian regime exploiting the region’s natural resources – and its people. When an intersex runaway and an escaped miner find each other through cosmic forces, their connection sparks glitches within the greater divine circuitry. Set between states of being – past and present, dream and waking life, colonized and free, male and female, memory and prescience – Neptune Frost is an invigorating and empowering direct download to the cerebral cortex and a call to reclaim technology for progressive political ends.
