    FM (FM Einheit of Einstürzende Neubauten) has discovered something incredible in the monotonous ‘muzak’ played through the fast food restaurant H Burger’s speaker system: the tracks are laced with subliminal messages designed to ensure complacency and consumerism. Experimenting with his discovery, FM soon realizes that by changing the type of music played, he can manifest a whole range of emotional responses and stir up the populace from their consumerist subordination. But as the diners are emotionally awakened, they become more and more prone to rioting and general social unrest, which puts FM in an increasingly dangerous position, especially when the sinister and mysterious organization behind the the plot to keep the public complacent takes an interest in finding and stopping him…

    An underground hit from Germany’s punk and new wave infused youth culture of the early 80s, director Muscha’s DECODER blends arresting visuals, urban industrial aesthetics, science fiction, and moments of shocking violence, along side searing commentary on late 20th century consumerist culture. Co-starring punk icon Christiane Felscherinow and William S. Burroughs in a supporting role and featuring music by Soft Cell, The The and industrial pioneers Einstürzende Neubauten, Vinegar Syndrome is proud to bring this criminally under-seen masterpiece of German weirdness to Blu-ray, in a brand new 2k restoration of its original 16mm camera negative.”English

    In a post-nuclear holocaust wasteland, Sam Hell (“Rowdy” Roddy Piper) is like most other survivors; a nomadic scavenger roaming the bombed out remnants of the world for food and survival gear. But Sam is also harboring a major secret that even he isn’t aware of: he’s the last fertile man on Earth. As unexpected pregnancies are discovered, the remnants of the government decide to capture him and, with the aid of scientist Spangle, fit him with a secure chastity belt to ensure his virility is used only when needed. After learning of a group of supposed virgins who are being held captive by frog-mutant savages, Sam is sent on a rescue mission to free the women and then, of course, impregnate them. Is he up for the job? You bet…

    An ‘only in the 80s’ hybrid of post apocalyptic sci-fi weirdness, cynical humor, and horror touches, director Donald G. Jackson’s HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN is every bit as crazy as its title implies. Co-starring Sandahl Bergman (Conan the Barbarian), Rory Calhoun (Angel), and featuring a supporting performance from Nicholas Worth (Don’t Answer the Phone), Vinegar Syndrome presents HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN on Blu-ray in North America for the first time, in a brand new, 4k restoration.”

    The notorious debut feature from future acclaimed filmmaker ‘Jimmy Boy L.’, 9 LIVES OF A WET PUSSY, which was shot under the more appropriate title of ‘Nothing Sacred,’ is a sexual fever-dream laced with astute commentary on religion, class, and general mysticism. Written by ‘Nicholas George’, and photographed by Francis X. Wolfe (Nightdreams), and with a throbbing, jazz-infused original soundtrack composed by Joseph Delia (Bad Lieutenant, The Addiction), 9 LIVES OF A WET PUSSY has long only been viewable in poor quality and censored editions. Vinegar Syndrome is pleased to present the world Blu-ray debut of this fascinating chapter in New York City made underground cinema, newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative, with its most controversial sequence fully intact for the first time since its initial VHS release in the early 80s.”

    That's two important adult movie restorations in one month. Outstanding.

    I wonder whatever happened to Jimmy Boy L, so much promise?! The holy grail would've been getting Ferrara to do a commentary on this, but I wouldn't want to be the one to ask him!

    And two posts later is the announcement.

    Curious that Ferrara's name is nowhere on the announcement. Legal reason?

    I noticed that too. It's a pretty poorly kept secret that he made this. It's on his imdb page and he appears in the movie.

    How is Decoder? I've heard of it & I'm a fan of Blixa (at least, up until the release with pissing horse on the cover).

    I'm way behind on VS releases. I didn't order anything from that last sale; I know I want Satan's Slave, Corruption of Chris Miller, & The Suckling. I guess they will wait until Black Friday. Hopefully there will not be other crap $ has to go to when the sale comes.

    Decoder has some funny cameos in it. i haven't seen it in about 15 years. if i get a free moment i'll dig out my VHS copy tomorrow. bought it from CDNow when i was in high school. seem to remember a part with Einheit moving/dancing while holding a cassette player...he might be manipulating people with sounds
