Vice Academy 1-3: Region-free Blu-ray loaded with extras

U.S. cult label, Vinegar Syndrome, is releasing Vice Academy 1-3, on a region-free 2-disc restored Blu-ray edition.

Following the trend of raunchy direct-to-video sex comedies popularized in the early to mid-80s, director Rick Sloane (Hobgoblins) decided to take his own stab at the sub-genre, creating the surprise hit franchise VICE ACADEMY in 1989. Featuring the comedic exploits of undercover female vice cops who go head-to-head with everything from smut film producers to arch villainesses with plans for sexual world domination, each film mixes T&A with broad slapstick humor and hijinks.

Starring iconic scream queen Linnea Quigley (Night of the Demons) and erotic film legend Ginger Lynn Allen (Trashy Lady), the VICE ACADEMY series was a staple of late-night TV throughout the early to mid-90s. Known for their absurd plot lines and surprisingly robust and colorful visuals, Vinegar Syndrome Archive presents VICE ACADEMY 1-3 all newly restored in 2K from their original 35mm camera negatives and together in one handy collection.
