FORTRESS OF AMERIKKKA is part of our Vinegar Syndrome Archive collection, celebrating forgotten cinematic oddities from the video store era. This collection was inspired by our own brick & mortar 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 indie retailers. Absolutely no major retailers will be stocking them. This slipcase edition is strictly limited to 5,000 units and may (but probably not) be followed by a standard edition in the future.
Hidden deep in the forest next to sleepy Troma City, a band of ruthless mercenaries, the ‘Fortress of Amerikkka,’ have set up camp, practicing their violent tactics of war in preparation for an impending revolution. When the violence begins to take the lives of the townsfolk, John Whitecloud, a tough half-Indian with a bad reputation decides to take matters into his own hands and protect his community. But facing as much animosity from the townspeople as from the mercenaries themselves, John quickly learns that he’ll be fighting two battles.
One of the gorier action films to be produced during Troma’s golden age, Eric Louzil’s (Class of Nuke ‘em High 3) FORTRESS OF AMERIKKKA offers up a non-stop barrage of brutality, beheadings, impalings, stabbings, and a copious amount of sex and nudity. A long time casualty of dark and muddy VHS tapes, some containing the heavily censored R-rated version, Vinegar Syndrome Archive is proud to give FORTRESS OF AMERIKKKA the Blu-ray release it deserves, and has newly restored it from its original 35mm negative.
