GRINDHOUSE RELEASING’S “CORRUPTION”
NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!
Rare Peter Cushing ’60s Super-Shocker Presented Uncut for the First Time in the U.S.!
HOLLYWOOD – Grindhouse Releasing is proud to present the first-ever U.S. home video release of CORRUPTION, the gory swinging ‘60s British thriller starring the legendary Peter Cushing as a surgeon driven to murder and madness. The special edition Blu-ray/DVD combo streets October 8 and is now available for pre-order from Amazon.com and Diabolik DVD.
Grindhouse Releasing’s spectacular new hi-def presentation of CORRUPTION was created from original vault elements and restores scenes originally deemed too graphic for American audiences. Packed with a wealth of amazing bonus features, the disc is an essential purchase for horror fans on the occasion of Cushing’s centenary.
“Peter Cushing has always been my favorite actor,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder and disc producer Bob Murawski. “Therefore I am absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to release CORRUPTION. It’s an overlooked, underappreciated gem in the Cushing canon, a psychotic super-shocker that fully delivers in every way.”
Specs for the CORRUPTION disc are as follows:
• 2 DISC SET – Deluxe dual layer Blu-ray Edition + DVD combo
• Spectacular new hi-definition digital restoration of the original uncensored version
• PLUS – the “International Version” of the movie with bloody violence and nudity presented for the very first time in America!
