Disconnected & Twenty Questions DELUXE BLURAY/DVD COMBO
Alicia has been receiving strange phone calls in which loud and ghastly sounds echo through the receiver. Her relationship with her boyfriend, Mike, has hit a dead end and Alicia fears he’s having an affair with her twin sister, Barbara Ann. And all the while, a psychotic slasher is murdering young women with the police powerless to stop him. But then Alicia meets kind and nerdy Franklin. Will he be the man she’s been searching for, or will his own dark secrets destroy their newfound happiness?
Gorman Bechard’s (PSYCHOS IN LOVE) directorial debut, DISCONNECTED is a low budget, regional slasher oddity that subverts genre expectations, leading to a brutal and unsettling finale. Never officially released on DVD, Vinegar Syndrome brings this under seen gem of early 80s horror to Blu-ray, newly restored from original 16mm elements and loaded with extras including a rare short film directed by Bechard.
Also includes TWENTY QUESTIONS, Bechard's long-thought-lost documentary from 1986. Twenty people, from all walks of life, are each locked alone in a room for the length of one 400-foot roll of 16mm film (11 minutes). They are each given the same set of twenty questions, which they can answer at random...if they're not completely distracted by their surroundings. It's about life. It's about death. It's about everything . . . well, sort of.
