I believe it's now $10, no matter the number of items, and no matter the number of shipments.
For example, my latest order has 5 items, it will be shipped in 2 shipments (some were pre-orders), and I paid $10 for it.

Two new releases just announced:

(VS-014) THE DOLL SQUAD + MISSION: KILLFAST [BLU-RAY] (September 10, 2013)
http://vinegarsyndrome.com/launch/?product=the-doll-squad-mission-killfast-blu-ray (http://vinegarsyndrome.com/launch/?product=the-doll-squad-mission-killfast-blu-ray)

(VS-015) DEATH FORCE (aka VENGEANCE IS MINE) + VAMPIRE HOOKERS [DVD] (September 10, 2013)
http://vinegarsyndrome.com/launch/?product=death-force-aka-vengeance-is-mine-vampire-hookers-dvd (http://vinegarsyndrome.com/launch/?product=death-force-aka-vengeance-is-mine-vampire-hookers-dvd)

These are probably the most accessible/entertaining titles VS has announced so far.
That The Doll Squad + Mission: Killfast release will be their first BD only effort, and it comes with a number of special features, including a commentary by Ted V. Mikels, and interviews with Mikels and actress Francine York.

To be fair if Code Red re-released it you'd be advertising it all over the place and getting it yourself  :D

I'll probably get it for Death Force (presented uncut and under its original title, VENGEANCE IS MINE!) though.  :D

Post by: bdc on 01 Jul 2013 - 21:00
Looks like Vampire Hookers will have a new transfer (from the IP)?

Btw another Drive-in Collection double is up for pre-order @ Amazon:
Blood Thirst / Thirsty Dead

2 more US/Filipino shockers.
Blood Thirst was on my wish list so that's cool.  :D

Yeah, according to VS it's a 2k scan from a 35mm IP.
There's a few sample screenshots on their website.

I'm not sure you're aware, but one of the cool things about VS is that they do their own transfers in-house, with their own equipment.
They are a "spin-off" of a company called Process Blue, which specializes in film scanning and digital restoration. They have several well known clients, including Synapse Films, Drafthouse Films, and more.
That's why their releases look pretty impressive, especially those in HD.

Vinegar Syndrome has been releasing a few of their DVD titles as HD, 1080p downloads.

Today, to celebrate their October releases, they made available their first download-only (at least at present) title for free (or pay what you want).
It's a 1968 sexploitation production called The Night Hustlers. You can check it out here:

They could look like the actors are in my front room but if the films are shit then I'm not going to buy them.

No point buying anything unless I'm going to watch and enjoy them. Any recommendations as far as watchable films are concerned?

MASSAGE PARLOUR MURDERS is the only one that seems to tick all the boxes so far.

The XXX smut DVD releases are excellent and I highly recommend the documentary LABOUR OF LOVE.  MASSAGE PARLOUR MURDERS is fun in a time capsule sort of way, but is by no means a great film and GOOD LUCK MRS WYKOFF was a pleasant surprise. I've got almost everything they released. I love this label and I'm interviewing Joe, the owner of VS, on Saturday.

Please don't spread misinformation, they didn't change the prices.
They were already applying a small discount (so, like in the current promo, you had a price on the left, the retail price of the item, and a price on the right, the price they were selling it for), and when this sale started, they just changed the discount to a higher one.

Spoke to Joe, who runs VS, for 90 mins this afternoon. He said that the Black Friday sale has been a huge success and they have run out of stock of most titles, but they are not out of print, they just need to be restocked. No underhanded business practices here, Joe is a class act.
Title: Re: Vinegar Syndrome (USA)
Post by: Hellochas on 30 Nov 2013 - 23:25
Glad the sale is going well for them. They seem like a decent bunch and are very open with what they are releasing. None of this annoying cloak and dagger malarkey that some other companies arse about with.

Some great news from the guys at Vinegar Syndrome. They did major upgrades to their equipment, and will be doing 4k scanning and restorations.

Among their upcoming titles, some are already confirmed to be receiving 4k scans:
SUGAR COOKIES (4k restoration)
GRADUATION DAY (4k restoration)
LAST HOUSE ON DEAD END STREET
NAKED ZOO
THE JEKYLL AND HYDE PORTFOLIO

That's amazing, hopefully other folks will take their lead and give 4K scans to other niche titles.

Admittedly this will probably not happen as VS own their own kit and can do these things in house but maybe other companies can utilise their tech and get stuff scanned by them.

Their "sister" company, now called OCN Digital Labs (http://ocndigital.com/ (http://ocndigital.com/)), has frequently done work for Synapse, Severin, Drafthouse Films, Distribpix, among others.

Ultimately, this equipment upgrade is great news, because it will surely result in better releases from other labels as well, including some of the above.

It's crazy to think some of these films were unavailable in home video formats, and now will have 4k scans, especially since most catalog releases from the big Hollywood studios, including some of the bigger classics, get 2k scans.

I'll definitely get this, never seen it and the tape goes for ridiculous money.

Do you mean The Jekyll and Hyde Portfolio?

Funny you mention it, here's what they said on their Facebook page: «Hey no matter what, we won't charge you $2000.00 for a VHS copy on ebay...».  ;D

A heads up, for those who might be interested: Vinegar Syndrome decided to release The Jekyll & Hyde Portfolio, coupled with A Clock Work Blue, as a BD/DVD combo, limited to 1000 copies.
http://vinegarsyndrome.com/launch/?product=limited-edition-the-jekyll-hyde-portfolio-a-clock-work-blue-bddvd-combo (http://vinegarsyndrome.com/launch/?product=limited-edition-the-jekyll-hyde-portfolio-a-clock-work-blue-bddvd-combo)
They will be selling half of the stock on their website (pre-orders are up for $24.98, and apparently over half of it was sold already), and the rest at conventions during the year.

These two titles will also be released as a double-feature DVD in April, but missing the X rated cut of A Clock Work Blue that is included as a bonus on the BD/DVD combo (and obviously missing the BD as well).

News in :

"Just a quick heads up... We only have 50 more pre-orders of the limited-edition JEKYLL AND HYDE PORTFOLIO + A CLOCKWORK BLUE blu-ray combo to sell online via our website."

Sold a lot quicker than I was expecting it too.

Night Train To Terror 7" soundtrack this fall!

A co-production from Vinegar Syndrome and local label No Visible Scars (http://novisiblescars.bandcamp.com/ (http://novisiblescars.bandcamp.com/)), these 7" should be arriving late September/early October, possibly earlier. Depending on how well these do, we may do some bigger and better soundtracks from the archive as well!

Vinegar Syndrome just opened their new website.

They now have monthly "pre-order packages", with further discounts, which include all the releases for that given month. These may be of interest, especially since you don't pay for the "packages" until they are ready to ship. Some upcoming months will feature more well know horror titles, which will make some of these future packs an attractive proposition.

The two packs that are up are:

-August 2014 package ($50.34):
VS-046: TROPIC OF DESIRE + FANTASY WORLD [DVD]
VS-047: PURELY PHYSICAL + CATHOUSE FEVER [DVD]
VS-048: IN SEARCH OF BIGFOOT + CRY WILDERNESS [DVD]
VS-049: THE ULTIMATE PLEASURE + I AM ALWAYS READY [DVD]

-September 2014 package ($58.74):
VS-050: GRADUATION DAY [BLU-RAY/DVD COMBO]
VS-051: TOUCH ME + CRY FOR CINDY + ACT OF CONFESSION [DVDx2]
VS-052: PRISONER OF PARADISE [DVD]
VS-053: MAI LIN VS. SERENA + ORIENTAL HAWAII [DVD]

As usual, international shipping is $12 for order, no matter how many items are included.
Title: Re: Vinegar Syndrome (USA)
Post by: Funktion on 16 Aug 2014 - 20:50
Vinegar Syndrome is having a promotion this weekend: every order of $25+ gets to choose a gift during checkout, which can either be a few buttons + a magnet, or a copy of their cancelled/recalled Savage Water/Death By Invitation DVD.
For those wanting this DVD release, this is your chance (a while back this DVD was being sold by significant amounts on Ebay).

The guys from Vinegar Syndrome are launching a new label in 2015 called Etiquette Pictures.
To quote them:
«Etiquette is devoted to the preservation and distribution of unique, offbeat, and significant experimental films, documentaries and independent features, as well as some contemporary works.»

Their first releases:
THE AMERICAN DREAMER (1971)
SOME CALL IT LOVING (1973)
LOOSE ENDS (1976)

Anyway, Vinegar Syndrome just pressed a total of 500 DVD units of a rare title, Murder on the Emerald Seas. Some copies were sold at a recent Cinema Wasteland convention, and the rest of the stock is being included, first come first served, as a free bonus to those who pre-order their upcoming November Monthly Package.
This package includes all their November titles, for a total of $51.70 + shipping, namely:
-Pretty Peaches (BD/DVD combo; limited to 1500 copies)
-Christmas Evil (BD/DVD combo)
-Fantastic Orgy + Champagne Orgy (DVD)
and, while stocks last:
-Murder on the Emerald Seas (DVD; limited to 500 copies)

I'm a bit on the same boat. I'm not particularly in love with that Peekarama release, but I figure that $51 for the 3 other releases in not a bad price.
Christmas Evil is a 4k scan, so even if you don't care about the movie, at least you can be sure it will look rather lovely. :-\ And they ported a number of extras from all previous releases, including 3 audio commentaries, one with John Waters.

If it helps (or if you are as broke as I currently am ;D), you don't pay when you place your order for these monthly packages. You don't even give out your payment information.
When they have the items in stock, they send you an email with a link to complete the transaction through Paypal, which should happen either on the last days of the month, or in early November.

I don’t own any of their titles, but I’ll be buying Raw Force.  I watched a bad vhs rip of this movie in a bar earlier this year and it is nutty.  With the exception of a good car chase, if this movie doesn’t have it, you don’t need it.

I updated the release list on the first post of this topic (it's been a while since I've done so).

If anyone is interested, Vinegar Syndrome is running a campaign on Indiegogo to help fund their digital streaming service. The campaign ends next week.
I mention this because as rewards (above a certain tier) they are promising two exclusive editions, a DVD (with Len Anthony's Murderous Intent and Frighthouse) and a BD (not announced), and they are only pressing the copies needed to send to their backers, so these will be quite limited pressings.
Title: Re: Vinegar Syndrome (USA)
Post by: Funktion on 23 May 2015 - 20:19
I updated the release list on the OP.
Remind me again why I keep updating it?  ;D

A few random bits of info from the past months:
-they released a limited DVD (1000 copies) of The Cut-Throats, which is currently only available as a free gift for those who order the May or June monthly packages;
-the limited BD/DVD set I previously mentioned for their Indiegogo campaign will be The Executioner, Part II, with Frozen Scream as a bonus (the later only on the DVD);
-they announced a partnership with Xenon Pictures, and will be releasing a few of their titles on BD, such as Sweetback, Coonskin, Dolemite, Three Day Pass, and Don't Pay Us Cheap.
-in less than a month, VS will release a limited, double-feature BD of Crypt of the Living Dead, and House of the Living Dead.

Also, they are currently having a sale, in which selected titles will be 50% off until Monday.

VS is working from a dupe negative, so this should be pretty decent.
They have also been alerted to a commentary Naschy recorded for this film that has never been issued, fingers crossed.
