Plot Sypnosis:

A young woman from Ohio fleeing an abusive marriage has just arrived in New York when she’s attacked and nearly raped by a pair of thugs. At the last second, she’s rescued by a gang of armed women who leap from a van, shooting one of the attackers dead and compelling the would-be victim to pull the trigger on the other. With nowhere else to turn, the young woman - who calls herself Jennifer - is quickly inducted into the gang, which has been targeting male sex offenders, leaving a trail of castrated cadavers across the city. As the cops start to realize that they have a vigilante squad on their hands, and the gang decides to set its sights on higher-profile targets, Jennifer must decide which side of the law she wants to end up on.

Shot almost entirely on location in Manhattan in the mid-90s, providing a snapshot of a gritty and grimy New York long-since disappeared, A GUN FOR JENNIFER - co-written, produced by and starring Deborah Twiss and co-written/directed by Todd Morris - is a brutal and bloody female revenge anthem in the tradition of Ms. 45 and I Spit on Your Grave, culminating in a balls-to-the-wall shootout to rival anything seen in The Wild Bunch. A sensation at the 1997 Fantasia Film Festival but criminally underseen in the intervening years, Vinegar Syndrome is proud to unearth A GUN FOR JENNIFER on Blu-ray in a brand new 2K restoration from the original 16mm negative, accompanied by a revelatory new documentary telling the fascinating story of this gonzo production.
