Vinegar Syndrome Releasing ‘The Suckling’ Limited Edition (US) Blu-Ray This March



Vinegar Syndrome Releasing 'The Suckling' Limited Edition Blu-Ray This March

Fans of 80s monster horror-comedy gem The Suckling can get their hands a copy of the film on Blu-Ray in the United States for the very first time this March. This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to 1,500 units and is only available at the website!

An offbeat and gleefully violent monster horror-comedy from one time director Francis Teri, The Suckling blends gratuitous gore, nonchalant T&A, and a sly side helping of social commentary, resulting in a distinctive 80s horror indie gem. Vinegar Syndrome presents this direct-to-video favorite on Blu-ray in the US for the first time, in a brand new 2k restoration made from its original 16mm camera negative.

Synopsis: “After being tricked into having an abortion at Big Mama’s underground abortion clinic / brothel, a young woman’s extracted fetus is flushed into the sewer system wherein it’s exposed to toxic waste and begins to mutate into an ever growing and increasingly bloodthirsty monster. The girls, johns and other assorted weirdos find themselves trapped inside the brothel where they are forced to face off against the agitated, prenatal creature, as well as each other, in a high stakes quest to stay alive, or at least in one piece.
