Your Home for Horror

Bloody Blog

Light those candles, turn on your fave ’80s horror synth soundtrack, and prepare for the season of love — Vinegar Syndrome style.

February brings the last push of the Winter season before giving way to the Spring awakening, and the most famous of Hallmark profit-driven holidays, Valentine’s Day. As the calendar turns from January to February we all begin making plans for Valentine’s Day with a special partner, avoiding the focus on other people’s relationships, or preparing to spend the holiday alone or with friends.

It’s especially hard to find a gift for that special someone, or yourself, and the maelstrom of advertisements for food, jewelry, getaway weekends just adds to the holiday noise. But do not fear because Vinegar Syndrome has prepared a Valentine’s Day weekend sale that will ensure the perfect gift for yourself or the person in your life who loves violence, gore, sex, and trash.

But that is not all! Morbidly Beautiful is here for you, too, with five purchase suggestions from the deep Vinegar Syndrome catalog.

Vinegar Syndrome’s Third Annual Valentine’s Day Weekend Sale (V-Day) starts next Friday the 11th at 12:01 am and runs through Monday the 14th at 11:59 pm. During the sale, ALL of Vinegar Syndrome’s 160+ sexploitation and Peekarama titles will be marked down to 50% off SRP.

Explore genre masterpieces by filmmakers such as Bob Chinn, Sam Weston (Anthony Spinelli), Roberta Findlay, Henri Pachard, and many more, plus career performances from stars like Annette Haven, Kay Parker, Serena, Seka, John Leslie, Jamie Gillis, John Holmes, and many more.

SexWorld

SexWorld is a luxury resort, advertised as the ultimate sex-themed getaway, where any and every fantasy, no matter how outrageous, can be brought to life. Following the arrival of a fresh bus load of guests, it becomes apparent that the attendees are in store for much more than a simple weekend of debauched and hedonistic pleasures. Each visitor is forced to confront their unique sexual fears, repressed desires, and insecurities, through the help of SexWorld’s completely lifelike but actually animatronic lovers. Some find the happiness they’ve been longing for, while others discover that their seemingly idyllic relationships are a source of unexpected misery…
