You know legendary maniacs Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger. Now meet Leslie Vernon, the next great psycho-slasher. Nathan Baesel (Invasion) stars as Vernon, a good-natured killing machine who invites a documentary film crew to follow him as he reminisces with his murder mentor (Scott Wilson, The Walking Dead), evades his psychiatrist/nemesis (Robert Englund, A Nightmare On Elm Street), deconstructs Freudian symbolism, and meticulously plots his upcoming slaughter spree. But when the actual carnage begins, where do you draw the line between voyeuristic thrills, mythic evil, and good old-fashioned slasher movie mayhem? Angela Goethals (24) and Zelda Rubinstein (Poltergeist) co-star in this ingeniously twisted and award-winning shocker that Film Threat hails as “a masterpiece. “

Based on the acclaimed novel by “Queen of Icelandic Crime”, Yrsa Sigurðardóttir, this atmospheric chiller is both a hair-raising ghost story and a powerful tale of life beyond death.
Over the past five years, all of us at Vinegar Syndrome have worked to find, restore, and re-issue some of the most eclectic, unique, and unjustly forgotten genre films from the greatest era for independent cinema, the 1960s through 80s. While our focus is always on preservation (and ALL of our restorations are archived in either 2k or 4k, depending on how the film was scanned), on some titles we couldn’t justify the expense of Blu-ray and as such, only DVD editions were issued. However, to celebrate our fifth anniversary, we’ve assembled this limited edition 2-disc Blu-ray collection of five previously DVD only Horror and Exploitation rarities, spanning the wide reaches of our archive. This set is limited to 2,500 units.
