Along with the rest of their pre-Black Friday Flash Preorders, like The Invisible Maniac in 4K and Homegrown Horrors Volume 2, Vinegar Syndrome landed a cult film whale.


We're pleased to at last announce our fourth VSU; a film truly worthy of the branding; featuring huge stars, even even bigger thrills, and a whole lot of ass kicking: Rowdy Herrington's ROAD HOUSE! Our edition features a brand new, VS created, 4K restoration, an exclusive making-of doc, and plenty of other heavy hitting extras! As usual, it will be packaged in VSU's custom designed hard box featuring newly created art by Tom Hodge!

James Dalton is a tough-as-nails bouncer with a reputation for using any and all force necessary to "keep the peace." Meanwhile, Frank Tilghman, a country businessman, is having trouble maintaining control over the violent patrons and crooked staff at his newly acquired club, the Double Deuce. Upon learning of Dalton's take-no-prisoners attitude toward security, he makes a proposal too good for Dalton to refuse; summoning him from The Big Apple to Jasper, MO and handing him the reins to the bar, on the promise that he clean the place up. But no sooner than his first few days in charge does he wind up stabbed and in the hospital. With the knowledge that he's up against a gang of thugs who play even dirtier than he does, Dalton throws caution to the wind and prepares for a fight that will inevitably send someone six feet under...

Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing, Ghost), Kelly Lynch (Drugstore Cowboy), Sam Elliot (Tombstone, The Big Lewbowski), and Ben Gazzara (The Killing of a Chinese Bookie) headline an all-star cast in director Rowdy Herrington's blockbuster turned cult classic, ROAD HOUSE. Newly restored in 4K from its 35mm original camera negative, specifically for this release, and bursting with both new and archival extras, Vinegar Syndrome Ultra is proud to give this ass-kicking classic the kick-ass special edition it deserves.

For whatever reason, every time this movie comes up in conversation, this one line of dialog pops into my head first:

I'll have to wait until it is back in stock, but I cannot wait. This has always been a favorite of mine!

I just received this from Amazon and there is no hard box or booklet. Are there 2 releases of this?

The Limited Edition, with the hard box and booklet sold out immediately. You would have had to pre-order it from the Vinegar Syndrome website, in order to secure it. It's going to be the same with the forthcoming Limited Edition of Showgirls. If you don't pre-order it, you won't get it.

So the only differences are the packaging and the booklet correct?

They may have restocked on the Road House LE: The VS website indicates they have over 1,000 on-hand.

The inclusion of the Kevin Smith track makes this very tempting.
