Hollywood, cops, hookers and killer pimps!
Officially announced today, Scream Factory is bringing director Gary Sherman’s 1982 “neon-slime” cult classic Vice Squad to Blu-ray this Summer as a Collector's Edition release!
In the film, "Season Hubley stars as Princess, a single mom by day, a Hollywood prostitute by night. A volatile cop, Tom Walsh (Gary Swanson) uses her to trap a sadistic pimp named Ramrod (Wings Hauser), who murdered one of her friends. But when Ramrod escapes police custody, Princess is in grave danger. No matter which way she turns, Ramrod is coming for her. Walsh and the entire police force are out looking to catch him. Tonight, the neon slime will be on full display and the city of Los Angeles will explode with furious vengeance and violence!"
If you’re a fan of movies like Savage Streets, 10 to Midnight or Class of 1984, this is a must have.
"Extras will be confirmed on a later date but we can aim to pack it. We are working closely with Gary to make it the best as possible," Scream Factory notes.
The newly-commissioned artwork pictured below comes to us from Joel Robinson. This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork.
Pre-orders begin today which include the Blu-ray plus a rolled 18” x 24” poster of the new art. The poster is exclusive to Scream Factory and will be made at a limited-run of 500 pieces.
National street date for North America (Region A) is August 13th.
