Savage Dawn (1985): Region-free 2K Blu-ray

Vinegar Syndrome presents an exploitation biker film, Savage Dawn (1985), on a region-free 2K restoration Blu-ray.

The residents of a small border town find themselves under siege by a vicious biker gang who get their kicks from unfettered brutality. When Stryker, a hardened Vietnam veteran who’s in the area visiting an old friend, learns of the goings-on, he becomes determined to put an end to the violence by any means necessary and begins to assemble a ragtag militia…

A rough n’ tumble biker themed action film which evokes the feeling of AIP’s 60s classics, though filtered through a nudity, violence, and crazy stunt fueled Cannon-era sensibility, Simon Nuchtern’s SAVAGE DAWN stars Lance Henriksen (The Terminator, Aliens), George Kennedy (Death Ship), Karen Black (Easy Rider), and Richard Lynch (Invasion USA). Featuring heavily gelled cinematography by Gerald Fiel and a score by Pino Donaggio (Dressed to Kill), Vinegar Syndrome Archive is proud to present the world Blu-ray debut of SAVAGE DAWN, newly restored from its original 35mm camera negative.
