“Sugar Cookies”! Neglected Cult Troma Sexploitation Rescued!

Imagine getting a review like THIS!

“The intersection between art and trash doesn’t get much more tangled than ‘Sugar Cookies’!”

Get read for some tasty “Sugar Cookies!”

Sugar Cookies classic exploitation

Yes, a movie with sex, violence, and Troma’s legendary founder Lloyd Kaufman! In other words, a film that has it all!


Behold The Amazing Wonder Of “Sugar Cookies!”

First, here is the trailer for the remastered version of this “legendary lost” film, now being released in a special edition by Vinegar Syndrome:

Sugar Cookies obscure film

Here is how IMDB describes “Sugar Cookies”: A film producer murders his star actress during an erotic “game” and makes it look like suicide. The dead girl’s lesbian lover discovers what happened, and plots her revenge.

Sounds like good sexploitation to me! What makes this even more entertaining is the cast involved – here is some great insight on the film, thanks to the folks at Mondo Digital:

This release poster is from Troma, and there’s a reason for that! The script was actually the handiwork of future Troma founder Lloyd Kaufman, whose dad appears in the film as a lawyer with a kinky secretary, played by “soon to be” adult star Jennifer Welles!

Also on board was Associate Producer Oliver Stone, a school buddy of Kaufman’s! If you know anything about Lloyd, he’s got a lot of friends in the movie business!

cult actress lynn lowry

The film also starred Lynn Lowry, who only had two credits under her belt at the time (“I Drink Your Blood” and Kaufman’s “The Battle of Love’s Return”) but would go on to star in such cult classics as “The Crazies”, “Shivers”, and “Score”.

cult actress Mary Woronov

Finally, cult Actress Mary Woronov stars as well, and both she and Kaufman do audio commentary on the new release – with some great stories to tell!

“The only X-rated film to lose money!”

This is a classic Lloyd Kaufman quote, and as funny as that sounds, clearly the “Sugar Cookies” attempt to capitalize on the x-rated soft core movie trend of the early 70’s didn’t pay off at the time…

Sugar Cookies grindhouse

“Sugar Cookies” was screened in grind houses like this one around the country, and Troma released a version on home video – but now, thanks to the folks at Vinegar Syndrome, “Sugar Cookies” is back in an expanded edition!

Thanks Again, Vinegar Syndrome!

And of course, the masterminds at Vinegar Syndrome deserve applause for keeping classic cult cinema like this alive – and it’s not just “Sugar” over at “Vinegar!”

Yep, the folks at Vinegar Syndrome cover “saints” and “devils”, too! Vinegar Syndrome has a wide array of cult classics, and I admire their tenacity in going after obscure gems!

Check out another of their rediscovered classics here:

Vinegar Syndrome is helping to keep cult cinema alive, and bringing back a legendary Lloyd Kaufman film is one way to do it!

And of course, Lloyd went on to found the longest-running independent film studio in history – I am a huge fan of Troma, and you can support everything that Troma has going on by clicking on my story here – where I count down the ten great pieces of Tromatic cinema of all time!
