HOLLYWOOD - Grindhouse Releasing has announced Corruption and An American Hippie in Israel as the first in a series of new Blu-ray, DVD and theatrical releases. Both movies will arrive on home video on September 10.

Founded by the late Sage Stallone (1976-2012) and Bob Murawski, Grindhouse Releasing has long been considered the Criterion of cult movie labels. In a span of seventeen years, the company has produced lavish restorations of such notorious titles as Cannibal Holocaust, Lucio Fulci's The Beyond, I Drink Your Blood, Pieces, and many more to worldwide acclaim from fans and critics.

"Sage and Bob were pioneers in catering to the niche audience, and blazed a trail for all to follow," says Jay Douglas of CAV Distribution. "The anticipation for Grindhouse's return to the home video marketplace is incredible."

The release of An American Hippie in Israel and Corruption marks the company's return to the video market after a hiatus of two years during which Academy Award-winning film editor Murawski was busy working on Sam Raimi's Oz the Great and Powerful. It is also the company's first release since the passing of company founder Sage Stallone.

"After two years in the yellow brick prison of Oz, I am back full-time at Grindhouse Releasing, proudly continuing the important work that Sage and I began back in 1996," says Murawski. "We have an incredible slate of mind-blowing films that will be coming your way soon on Blu-ray and DVD. And on the big screen in a theater near you."

Grindhouse Releasing has brought its films to theaters all over North America. In recent years, the company coordinated nationwide theatrical releases of such celebrated horror classics as Sam Raimi's Evil Dead and William Lustig's Maniac (both remade in 2013). Grindhouse scored a hit on the midnight movie circuit in 2010 with its restoration of Duke Mitchell's long-lost gangster epic Gone with the Pope, and now aims to do the same with the psychedelic nightmare An American Hippie in Israel.

" An American Hippie in Israel is already drawing huge midnight movie crowds in Tel Aviv, where it's become another Rocky Horror," says company theatrical director David Szulkin. "We plan to do a full theatrical run of the film in the U.S. to promote the film's release on Blu-ray and DVD."

The rarely seen, shocking British feature Corruption, starring Peter Cushing as a mad surgeon, will hit Blu-ray and DVD on September 10. The Grindhouse Releasing special edition of CORRUPTION coincides with the legendary Hammer Films star's 100th birthday, and will be preceded by a series of theatrical playdates.

Four additional titles will follow in late 2013 and late 2014: Sergio Sollima's The Big Gundown, The Swimmer, starring Burt Lancaster, Duke Mitchell's Gone with the Pope and S.F. Brownrigg's Scum of the Earth (a.k.a. Poor White Trash Part 2). According to Murawski, the company's entire back catalog will also appear in new Blu-ray editions soon thereafter.

I just heard the news via facebook. I will get them all, but I can not wait for the definitive release of THE BEYOND and Cannibal Holocaust/Ferox!

Hoping for a CANNIBAL FEROX re-do - that DVD is now unwatchable. Well, not really, but is in need of a makeover very badly. PIECES is my most-anticipated from them.

Can't wait for Gone With The Pope ! Been ages since I saw it theatrically and it was an absolute BLAST. Here's to hoping it's not too long before that ones comes out.

I'll buy The Swimmer (which of these things...), Corruption and perhaps Scum of the Earth. Any possibility of Brownrigg's Don't Go in the Basement?

Glad to see they're going to be releasing bds. However, the only titles I'm interested in are Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox, and The Beyond. Hopefully those are released in the near future.

Hopefully the number them like Criterion, since they are calling themselves the "Criterion of Cult Movies"

MGM actually owns it, but since it has fallen into PD, as I believe it has, suppose they can, or anyone can, for that matter

How the heck did they get THE SWIMMER??? Is it no longer with Sony? Definitely looking forward to CORRUPTION and HIPPIE, and some Blu upgrades on some earlier titles.

SWIMMER, BIG GUNDOWN, CORRUPTION are Sony titles. I reckon they made a sublicensing deal with Sony, much like TT did.

That might work for the better anyway since if Grindhouse gets some of Sony's genre titles there would not be that 3000 limit which would happen if Twilight got them.
What could be interesting is - maybe the Blob remake can get switched from TT to Grindhouse - I dont know if thats really possible but I know a lot of people would go for it for reasons that happened with Christine. This isnt a knock on TT but its just a fact about people being unhappy with the limited to 3000 units, the server issues, etc
Corruption is a bizarre film, may check this out again, havent seen it in years...
But the one I am really interested in is Cannibal Ferox - time for an anamorphic HD transfer

I doubt TT will sublicense THE BLOB to Grindhouse or anybody, unless its in their agreement that it's OK to sublicense a title to another party. But it's highly doubtful as the deal between TT and sony was under the 3000 limit deal for 3 - 4 years.

Good news, but we're really going to have to wait another 2 years for The Beyond and Cannibal Holocaust?

Awesome news! I will definitely get them all, too. Can't wait to get the cannibals, Gone with the Pope and (maybe eventually) even Massacre Mafia Style!

The Swimmer is the big news for me, although I will be picking up many of the other titles.
