Vinegar Syndrome May Blu-ray Releases: Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song & Blood Suckers From Outer Space!

Vinegar Syndrom releases Blood Suckers From Outer Space and Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song on Blu-ray for the 1st time April 2018!

It is no surprise that we here at The Dead Walk are HUGE fans of Vinegar Syndrome (VS) and their affluent work within the horror, cult, and exploitation cinema home video market.

VS goes above and beyond the world of film. Not only do they hunt down prints of rare (sometimes lost) films that may have never seen the light of day, but they also restore these prints and release some of the best looking Blu-rays on the market today.

This May, they will be bringing 2 cult classics to the 4K/Blu-ray world with Melvin Van Peeble’s SWEET SWEETBACK’S BAADASSSSS SONG and Glen Coburn’s BLOOD SUCKERS FROM OUTER SPACE! 

Take a look at the specs for each title below as well some information for their “HALFWAY to BLACK FRIDAY” Annual celebration! [Note: All information below has been taken from the Vinegar Syndrome Official website. Links to each release below]

Considered to be among the most significant features ever directed by a black filmmaker and included in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art, SWEET SWEETBACK is a brutal and shocking story of survival and is credited as the first ‘blaxploitation‘ film ever made. Featuring a rousing score from a nascent Earth, Wind, & Fire as well as surrealist tinged visuals from cinematographer Robert Maxwell, Van Peebles creates an unforgettable and immersive study of perseverance in the face of racism. Vinegar Syndrome proudly brings this landmark film to Blu-ray, newly restored in 4K from its original 35mm camera negative.
