We're pleased to at last announce our fourth VSU; a film truly worthy of the branding; featuring huge stars, even even bigger thrills, and a whole lot of ass kicking: Rowdy Herrington's ROAD HOUSE! Our edition features a brand new, VS created, 4K restoration, an exclusive making-of doc, and plenty of other heavy hitting extras! As usual, it will be packaged in VSU's custom designed hard box featuring newly created art by Tom Hodge!

James Dalton is a tough-as-nails bouncer with a reputation for using any and all force necessary to "keep the peace." Meanwhile, Frank Tilghman, a country businessman, is having trouble maintaining control over the violent patrons and crooked staff at his newly acquired club, the Double Deuce. Upon learning of Dalton's take-no-prisoners attitude toward security, he makes a proposal too good for Dalton to refuse; summoning him from The Big Apple to Jasper, MO and handing him the reins to the bar, on the promise that he clean the place up. But no sooner than his first few days in charge does he wind up stabbed and in the hospital. With the knowledge that he's up against a gang of thugs who play even dirtier than he does, Dalton throws caution to the wind and prepares for a fight that will inevitably send someone six feet under...

Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing, Ghost), Kelly Lynch (Drugstore Cowboy), Sam Elliot (Tombstone, The Big Lewbowski), and Ben Gazzara (The Killing of a Chinese Bookie) headline an all-star cast in director Rowdy Herrington's blockbuster turned cult classic, ROAD HOUSE. Newly restored in 4K from its 35mm original camera negative, specifically for this release, and bursting with both new and archival extras, Vinegar Syndrome Ultra is proud to give this ass-kicking classic the kick-ass special edition it deserves.

Sexy f'in movie. Best b-movie of the 80s imo. Even better than Big Trouble In Little China in the b-movie stakes.
Wish I'd bought it now. Hoping for a UK release somewhere, by someone. Arrow????
I'd say Arrow would be the most logical. Id probably get that too if they do. I just saw on Instagram someone got theirs. It looks to have an odd texture.

Shipped !
Mine is still at label created... It was apparently supposed to fly yesterday. I mean maybe the tracking hasn't been updated but I'm not optimistic it will arrive tomorrow. I just hope it doesn't get stuck in customs. I don't want it delayed in addition to having to pay like another £8 ish.

I never really look at the tracking tbh. Should be here in 7 to 10 days from previous experience.

Some people are paying as much as $150 for this release on eBay - a bunch of suckers. Some retailers still have them available. Does anyone know if Vinegar Syndrome will restock?

Restock? They will be back in store when partners only month is over, and Vinegar Syndrome's own releases are available in store again on January 1st. Together with 10 new releases to celebrate 10 years of VS.

I am not even sure if it's a Limited release.
