DOLEMITE

(Rudy Ray Moore), the baddest pimp in town, has just been released from prison, ready to take revenge on notorious gangster Willie Green (D'Urville Martin), who set him up on a phony drug charge and stole his club, The Total Experience. With the help of his friend Queen Bee (Lady Reed) and their band of Kung Fu fighting vixens, Dolemite takes on every "rat soup eatin' motherf#%*er" in South Central.

Acclaimed comedian Rudy Ray Moore's outrageously funny and action packed blaxploitation classic, makes its worldwide blu-ray debut, fully restored in 2k from a recently discovered 35mm negative and loaded with extras, including a new making-of documentary by Elijah Drenner and a historical commentary track from Moore's biographer Mark Murray, featuring interviews with Moore as well as co-stars Jerry Jones, Lady Reed, John Kerry, cinematographer Nick Von Sternberg and more!

HUMAN TORNADO

(RECOMMENDED PURCHASE)

Dolemite (Rudy Ray Moore) is back and badder than ever in THE HUMAN TORNADO! After being run out of town by a racist sheriff, Dolemite returns to LA only to discover that Queen Bee's (Lady Reed) club has been taken over by the mafia. On top of that they have also kidnapped two of Queen Bee's top girls! With the law hot on his tail, Dolemite rounds up the toughest Kung-Fu fighting badasses in Southern California to take on the mob, culminating in one of the craziest surprise endings in blaxploitation film history!

Wilder and more over the top than its predecessor, THE HUMAN TORNADO is a non-stop assault on the senses, combining comedy, action, horror, and jawdropping weirdness, featuring supporting performances from Ernie Hudson, Jimmy Lynch and world karate champion Howard Jackson. Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents THE HUMAN TORNADO on Blu-ray, restored from original 35mm vault elements.

PETEY WHEATSTRAW

(RECOMMENDED PURCHASE)

Rudy Ray Moore is Petey Wheatstraw, whose talent for comedy is only topped by his gift for Kung-Fu. When his arch rivals, Leroy and Skillet, massacre him and his friends, Petey ends up in Hell and is given a unique opportunity: in exchange for his and his friends' return to earth, he must wed Satan's daughter. The only problem: she's the ugliest woman he's ever seen! Will Petey be able to defeat Satan with his magic pimp cane or will he be forced to become the Devil's son-in-law?

Rudy Ray Moore's third theatrical feature, PETEY WHEATSTRAW is a raucous and ridiculous blending of action, horror, and Moore's signature brand of raunchy humor. Written and directed by Cliff Roquemore, PETEY is perhaps the craziest of all of Moore's films and is coming to Blu-ray for the first time, newly restored in 2k from its original 35mm camera negative.

Directed by: Cliff Roquemore
Actors: Rudy Ray Moore, Jimmy Lynch, Leroy Daniels, Ernest Mayhand, Ebony Wright, G. Tito Shaw

DISCO GODFATHER

(RECOMMENDED PURCHASE)

Rudy Ray Moore is The Disco Godfather, owner and MC at the baddest disco in town. But there's a new evil in the community: Angel Dust. Determined to find and destroy the source of 'the whack,' The Disco Godfather becomes a one-man fighting machine from south central to Beverly Hills.

The last of Rudy Ray Moore's 70s features, DISCO GODFATHER is easily the strangest and most original of his filmic output. Combining his trademark Kung-fu action with social commentary and hallucinogenic nightmare sequences which evoke the surreal weirdness of Coffin Joe, DISCO GODFATHER is an unforgettable cinematic finale from one of the greatest names in Blaxploitation film history.

Newly restored from its long lost 35mm original negative, Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents DISCO GODFATHER on Blu-ray for the first time, packed with all new special features.
