Dr. Jekyll's Dungeon of Death is part of the Vinegar Syndrome Archive collection, celebrating forgotten cinematic oddities from the video store era. This collection was inspired by our own video store, The Archive in Bridgeport, CT.
Unique to this line, each hand numbered limited edition release will come fitted in a specially designed, bottom loading VHS inspired slipcase, while also including a double-sided poster.
These releases will ONLY be available on our website and at participating brick and mortar retailers. Absolutely no other online stores will be stocking them. This release is strictly limited to 3,000 units and will never be re-released in another version.
Dr. Henry Jekyll is the last in his family's line of mad, but brilliant scientists. Holed up in his ornate Victorian mansion in San Francisco, he has concocted a serum that, when injected, turns humans into crazed and violent fighters, with unstoppable strength and unquenchable bloodlust. But Henry has also kidnapped the beautiful daughter of his mentor, Professor Atkinson, whom he keeps as a prisoner, all the while his sister Hilda becomes the subject of his horrifying and rage induced torments. But when Professor Atkinson unexpectedly arrives, searching for his missing daughter, Henry's deranged world begins to unravel...
The only non-X rated title directed by mysterious filmmaker James Wood, DR JEKYLL’S DUNGEON OF DEATH traverses genres ranging from horror, domestic drama and brutal fight sequences, while boasting a surprising array of perverse and fetishistic torture sequences. Starring a mostly unknown cast, the film bounces wildly between overwrought camp and surprisingly grim and unpleasant abuse of its bizarre characters. A victim of poor quality VHS releases, which rendered its low lighting focused camerawork nearly impossible to make out, Vinegar Syndrome Archive brings this truly unclassifiable exploitation oddity to Blu-ray, newly restored in 2K from its 35mm negative.
