    And don't forget your $5 off Black Friday coupon which ends after March! You can find it on your physical receipt in your BF package.

    I have it on VHS, so I upgraded, but it's a dumb-but-fun enough late entry biker exploitation flick with an out of place Adam West. If you're a fan of James Bryan (Don't Go In the Woods, The Executioner Part II) and Renee Harmon (Lady Street Fighter, Frozen Scream), or the other VSA releases, you'll enjoy it.

    Here's an extended clip:

    I'm not into biker flicks unless there's a guy and two robot sidekicks in the front row making fun of it.

    I haven't seen Hell Riders, but I ordered it based on the strength of VSA's Savage Dawn, which was great fun.

    Good lord, it looks like the biker gang from Pee Wee's Big Adventure got their own movie! When they pulled that kid up on the bar I fully expected Tequila to start playing! I ended up pulling the trigger on this the last few minutes of the sale this weekend and now I'm glad I did.

    As mentioned, that beginning was great. I also thought the ending had some creepy moments, but the middle dragged a bit. Overall though, I quite enjoyed it.

    I noticed in the credits the assistant director was Don May. Would that be Synapse Don May Jr's father?

    It's an older VS title, and I bought it at a BF or BF/2 sale a few years ago, but I finally got around to watching Psychos in Love this past weekend. Didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. The bad jokes and puns were really cringe-y, till they used one that's in my regular repertoire ("Can I join you two?" "Why? Are we falling apart?"). Debi Thibeault was awfully easy on the eyes, since I love redheads, and 80s fashion. Not sure if and when I'll revisit it and/or get to the boatload of extras. It's one of those movies I wish I'd rented rather than bought, but that's part-and-parcel of Vinegar Syndrome; you have to take some chances with their movies, and those chances don't always pay out. You always make a few blind buys from VS that turn out to be real favorites (and a few that are real duds), this one falls somewhere in the middle.

    Psychos in Love was also a first-time viewing for me when I got the VS release, but I personally loved it and for me it's one of my favourite first-time VS discoveries! Sure, it's campy and a lot of the dialogue is overly punny but there's some real charm in this odd yet extremely funny horror-romantic comedy. For such a regional low-budget film, it's extremely well made and acted, and features some great gore! Goreman's first film Disconnected, also from VS, is also good/worth the watch - I don't like it as much as Psychos, but it's a lot more serious in tone and a little more experimental.

    I just haven't developed enough of a taste for the so-called "regional" horror films. Stuff like Psychos, Blood Hook, the American Horror Project films from Arrow, they aren't clicking with me.

    I preferred Disconnected to Psychos In Love.
