The April 2022 lineup has been announced and put up for grabs by Vinegar Syndrome today, and it includes the gory 1980s movie FleshEater, a must-watch for Romero fans.
Why, you ask? Released in 1988, FleshEater was directed by Bill Hinzman, who memorably played the very first zombie to appear in Romero’s Night of the Living Dead!
Vinegar explains, “A lo-fi gore epic directed by actor and cinematographer Bill Hinzman (The Crazies), star zombie in the classic Night of the Living Dead, FLESHEATER (aka Revenge of the Living Dead) is a fitting tribute and homage to Romero’s chilling masterpiece, updating the setting to the late 1980s while piling on the gut munching, throat ripping, and limb tearing action. Vinegar Syndrome is delighted to bring this highly ambitious slice of regional madness to 4K UHD and Blu-ray, in a brand new, eye popping (and gouging) restoration from its original 16mm camera negative, presented in its cinematographer and producer approved 1.33:1 aspect ratio for the first time on disc, along with a host of brand new extra features!”
“While assisting on a dig, a construction worker accidentally destroys the final resting place of a demonic zombie, rousting him from his unholy slumber, and reigniting his taste for human flesh. Meanwhile, a group of teenagers have decided to spend the night camping in the woods for a Halloween hayride, only to have their partying interrupted with the arrival of an ever-growing army of bloodthirsty undead! Will anyone survive the night in one piece?”
The April 2022 package from Vinegar Syndrome also includes sequel Death Wish II starring Charles Bronson on 4K Ultra HD and 1989 movie Alien Private Eye on Blu-ray.
