Vice Squad

  • + Q&A with Gary Sherman

Fri 17 Nov 18:15

A Los Angeles businesswoman, known only by her street name of Princess (Season Hubley), turns to prostitution to support herself and her young daughter. But after the murder of her friend, she’s tasked by the police to help them catch her murderer, a savage pimp named Ramrod (Wings Hauser).

Gary Sherman, the legend behind cult favourite Death Line, takes on the seedier side of life in this violent and brutal tale. This is a rare screening – other than an initial release into UK cinemas back in 1981 and a pre-VRA video tape, Vice Squad is still unavailable on disc or streaming in the UK.
