Vinegar Syndrome/OCN Digital Distribution Proudly Presents
Liquid Sky Available on Blu-ray for the First Time Ever April 24th
Groundbreaking Cult Film Made Indelible Impression on Pop Culture of the Day Featuring an Amazing 2 ½ Hours of Special Features
In one of the most memorable portraits of Manhattan’s early and, ultimately, dark ’80s new wave subculture, Liquid Sky (1982) is an iconic, underground science-fiction masterpiece, which had an indelible impact on pop culture, film, music and fashion.
Available for the first time ever on Blu-ray and highlighted by an acclaimed soundtrack,Liquid Sky will be available April 24 in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, featuring an amazing 2 ½ hours of special features that make it a must for fans and collectors.
Liquid Sky stars Anne Carlisle in an outstanding dual role as promiscuous, erotic and bi-sexual fashion model Margaret and her gay rival and nemesis, the androgynous Jimmy. The most successful independent film of 1982, Liquid Sky is seen as heavily influencing a club scene called electroclash, which emerged in the early 2000s in New York, Berlin, Paris and London.
Hailed by Time Magazine as ‘a two hour act of imagination,’ Slava Tsukerman’s LIQUID SKY is an underground masterpiece of avant-garde science fiction filmmaking. Set against the visual majesty of New York’s early 80s New Wave scene, and filled with arresting cinematography by Yuri Neyman, along with an acclaimed original soundtrack, Vinegar Syndrome proudly brings this quintessential midnight movie to Blu-ray, newly restored in 4k from its original 35mm camera negative.

About Vinegar Syndrome:
Vinegar Syndrome is an exploitation film/distribution company and film archive located in Bridgeport, Conn. Founded by genre-film lovers for genre-film lovers, Vinegar Syndrome’s mission is to preserve, restore and release the massive number of exploitation titles in our archive. We’re always searching for the rarest and most interesting exploitation movies we can find and, with a constantly growing in-house film archive consisting of thousands of 35mm and 16mm negatives and prints, there’s always a new treasure to be discovered and released. Our goal is to as accurately as possible recreate a theatrical viewing experience and only use digital restoration tools to remove or reduce severe image damage. All film scanning, color grading, digital restoration and disc authoring is performed in house by our sister company, OCN Digital Labs. By constructing a completed DVD or Blu-ray, we offer these films an opportunity to have a new life on home video (and theatrically, in some cases), to find new fans and rediscover old ones.
