Vinegar Syndrome is offering something pretty cool: they’ll ship your orders in an authentic grindhouse film canister at the low, low price of $39.98 (plus the cost of whatever DVD/Blu-ray you order). As pieces of film memorabilia go, this is actually pretty cool. I don’t know what you’re supposed to do with this thing once you get it, but what are you supposed to do with any of the crap you own? One thing’s for sure: this is cooler than some silicon toy with an enormous head. It probably smells like cigarettes, too.
For those who don’t know, Vinegar Syndrome is like Scream Factory, only sleazier (i.e. they publish a lot of old porn in addition to classic horror titles). Their latest big release was a Blu-ray re-release of Christmas Evil, John Waters’ Christmas horror film of choice and the only known starring role for Fionna Apple’s dad (true). But the title I’m most excited about is Raw Force (aka Kung Fu Cannibals). Take a look at the trailer and imagine this thing getting shipped to you in something unwieldy and rusty. Warning: the trailer is NSFW.
