Prey sounds interesting, but I’ve seen Inseminoid, and if it was anything to go by, that experience felt like enough Norman J Warren for one lifetime.

Prey is a bit slow in comparison even to Inseminoid, but does have that one good line to the cannibalistic alien (male) character from the (butch lesbian) member of the couple whose house he ends up lodging in: "I expect you'll want sugar in your tea, all you men do!"

Sugar in tea, now that’s just weird.

I must admit that I am curious as to how the incredibly long slow motion threesome struggling in the muddy pond sequence from Prey would look in HD! There's a small piece of it in the Vinegar Syndrome trailer!
Is looks pin sharp and sparkling!

I really admire Prey, such a strange film, which succeeds more as a blackly horrific chamber drama than a work of SF horror. Although rough hewn it’s genuinely grubby and daring, and I feel Warren makes an asset of the restricted setting and minimal cast.

It, and also Terror, are the kind of film I wanted th outstanding BFI Flipside to release.

I kept thinking "I'm not sure I should buy this one", and reading your exchange kept me in this hesitation, but it turns out I DID order it during this sale, so here I go to try it out. :lol:

I enjoyed Inseminoid far more than I expected to. I recall liking it for its camp and perverse elements - and its artific - that foregrounded what had been in the subtext of Alien.

I’d be chuffed if Vinegar Syndrome or someone as good would deliver Inseminoid.

not sure if everyone is aware, but vinegar syndrome has put out a beautiful blurray copy of the 1985 film buddies- the first film to deal with the aids pandemic.

i do not believe there was ever an official vhs print of this film made and the only way to see it besides it's first limited release, was a tv copy that was pretty impossible to get.

now if only these guys can get a camera negative of in love

Surprising that VS didn't release Buddies through its (non-exploitation) Etiquette Pictures label. Wonder if they've dropped that.

They never responded when I asked them online but I would assume its defunct now considering Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song was supposed to come out on the Etiquette label.

From the June 18 Vinegar Syndrome email newsletter:
“Then, pulling from the handful of holdovers from our short-lived Etiquette line, Arthur Bressan Jr's meditation on dying, BUDDIES, makes its home video debut. This acclaimed indie was not only the first narrative feature about AIDS, but remains one of the most powerful.”

September titles have leaked via DiabolikDVD:
  • Memories Within Miss Aggie (apparently a pornographic film, but it doesn't look that way)
  • The House on Tombstone Hill (also known as Dead Dudes in the House)
  • Body Melt
  • ...plus some DVD-exclusive adult titles
