Vinegar Syndrome Releasing 'Fade to Black' on Region Free Blu-Ray in the U.S. This January

Vinegar Syndrome recently made the announced that director Vernon Zimmerman‘s cult classic 1980 horror film Fade to Black is coming to Blu-Ray (region free) for the first time on January 26th, 2021. We have two box cover artwork reveals and special bonus features for you below, including a direct link to pre-order the film RIGHT HERE!

Synopsis: “Eric Binford lives for, and if he could have it his way ‘in’, the movies. He works at a 35mm print depot as a delivery boy, but spends all of his free time watching classic films and collecting Hollywood memorabilia. Endlessly tormented by his colleagues, Eric drifts further and further into a dream world wherein he embodies the silver screen characters he so deeply worships. However, when the teasing pushes him too far, he snaps and literally goes into character, donning the outfits of his big screen idols and slowly but surely killing off his tormentors in outrageous recreations of his favorite film scenes…

A slasher that’s profoundly infused with cinephilia and old Hollywood iconography from its first frame to its last, Vernon Zimmerman’s (Bobby Jo and the Outlaw) FADE TO BLACK is an often haunting examination of the terror that can occur when fantasy and reality collide. Starring Dennis Christopher (Breaking Away, the original It) alongside Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), and featuring cinematography by Álex Phillips Jr. (Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia), FADE TO BLACK is a masterpiece of psychological horror that’s making its long overdue, worldwide Blu-Ray debut from Vinegar Syndrome in a new 4K restoration of recently uncovered 35mm negative elements.
