Vice Squad Busts On Blu-ray In August

Things are always nasty and tough on the streets of Los Angeles. For all the dreams that come true for those we call stars, there’s a lot of people hustling to survive. Vice Squad cruises the sidewalks covered in dealers, users, prostitutes, Johns and pimps. Things get nasty for Princess when she does the right thing only to find herself marked for revenge for rating out a pimp. Vice Squad is a classic of the genre with the screen always filled with grit, flesh and blood. The crowd went nuts when Vice Squad ran as part of Cinema Overdrive in Raleigh. Now the film is getting the proper respect with Scream Factory giving us the Vice Squad: Collector’s Edition in August. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory with the bonus features:
