Grindhouse Releasing Presents Umberto Lenzi’s THE TOUGH ONES

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Grindhouse Releasing is proud to announce its long-awaited special edition Blu-ray release of Umberto Lenzi’s THE TOUGH ONES (ROMA A MANO ARMATA). The deluxe 3-disc set arrives in stores on July 9, 2019.

Pre-order THE TOUGH ONES at DiabolikDVD

Lenzi, the legendary director of CANNIBAL FEROX, kicked off the Italian police film craze with this hyper-kinetic, ultra-violent, brain-blasting action thriller. Maurizio Meril stars as an Italian DIRTY HARRY, punching and shooting his way through the sleazy drug, sex and crime infested cesspool of mid-’70s Rome, on the trail of a sadistic, machine gun-toting hunchback, played by Tomas Milian (star of THE BIG GUNDOWN).

Hailed as “one of the most gonzo, over-the-top Euro crime films you’ll ever see” (American Cinematheque), THE TOUGH ONES has been one of Grindhouse Releasing’s most requested titles for many years. Company founder Sage Stallone originally acquired the film during a trip to Italy in 1996.

“THE TOUGH ONES was a very favorite of my late partner Sage Stallone,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski, the Academy Award-winning film editor of THE HURT LOCKER, Sam Rami’s SPIDER-MAN 1, 2, & 3, and Orson Welles’ THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND. “Sage absolutely loved this movie and wanted everyone to see it. Our friend Umberto Lenzi was extremely proud of this film and was overjoyed when he heard that we had acquired it. As was Tomas Milian. I’m sorry they are not here to see this deluxe edition release.”

Boasting a state-of-the-art 4K transfer of Lenzi‘s uncensored director’s cut, the new Grindhouse Releasing edition of THE TOUGH ONES includes an incredible slate of special features:

– Original UNRATED, UNCENSORED director’s cut
– Mastered in eye-popping 4K resolution for maximum detail and impact
– Optional Italian language soundtrack with optional English subtitles
– Audio commentary by Mike Malloy, director of EUROCRIME!
– Brand new, in-depth interviews with director Umberto Lenzi, actors Tomas Milian, Maria Rosaria Omaggio, Sandra Cardini, Maria Rosaria Riuzzi and Corrado Solari, screenwriter Dardano Sacchetti, and composer Franco Micalizzi
– Special tribute to Marizo Merli with appearances by Enzo Castellari and Ruggero Deodato
– Vintage VHS intro by cult movie superstar Sybil Danning!
– Original international theatrical trailer
– Liner notes by Italian crime film expert Roberto Curti
– Deluxe embossed slip cover
– BONUS CD – original soundtrack album by Franco Micalizzi – newly remastered in stunning 24 bit/192khz sound from the original master tapes
-AND OTHER SURPRISES!

LIMITED BONUS

Custom 30-Caliber Metal Bullet Pen – Strictly Limited to 2500 Units!

“One of the most gonzo, over-the-top Euro crime films you’ll ever see.”
– American Cinematheque

“Containing little idealism and much violence for the sake of violence…director Umberto Lenzi keeps his action, cast and cameras moving along at a fast clip.”
– Variety

“The quintessential ‘Polizieschi’ movie. It has all the ingredients necessary – Alfa Romeo cars, stereotypical bad guys, angry ‘beat the system’ cops and lashings of over the top violence.”
– Jonny Redman, LoveLockandLoad

“OUTSTANDING…Maurizio Merli is Inspector Tanzi, a mega-mustached cop who’s forced to square off with Tomas Milian, a psychotic cripple appropriately nicknamed The Hunchback. Along the way, there’s plenty of innocents getting mowed down with machine guns, low-level criminals having their faces beaten in, incredibly energetic car chases, and so much more – all set to a wonderful score by Franco Micalizzi. A giant hit in its native Italy, it’s a wild slice of Eurotrash, showcasing Lenzi at his best, and a perfect starting place for the genre if you’re unfamiliar. You simply can’t go wrong!”
– Bruce Holecheck, Cinema Arcana

Advance praise for Grindhouse Releasing’s I DRINK YOUR BLOOD Blu-ray:

“One of the best examples of everything a drive-in horror film should be…Grindhouse Releasing has produced one of the best two-disc sets of 2016!” – DVD Drive-In

“INCREDIBLE…an essential purchase for all lovers of LSD and Satan!” – Brain-Hammer.com

“The old Grindhouse Releasing special edition DVD release of I DRINK YOUR BLOOD was fantastic but this Blu-ray reissue is leaps and bounds above…Not only does the movie look and sound better than ever but it’s got some impressive new supplements and it comes packed with two additional feature films also debuting in HD. The movie itself holds up incredibly well, a no-holds barred epic of nasty, exploitative horror that is as ridiculously entertaining now as it has ever been.” – Rock! Shock! Pop!

“Inspired, ambitious and full of surprises in that way that distinguishes the best exploitation films…I DRINK YOUR BLOOD delivers the goods in a way guaranteed to satisfy grindhouse devotees” -Schlockmania

“Absolutely essential…Grindhouse Releasing puts out the hands-down, bar-none best Blu-ray releases of genre cinema” – DVD Talk, Collector’s Series choice

“This riotous drive-in classic arrives on deluxe edition Blu-ray from the good folks over at Grindhouse Releasing who continue to astound and amaze with their HD releases….it looks absolutely gorgeous. Of course Grindhouse wouldn’t think of upgrading an older release without adding some new stuff for fans and they again go beyond expectations for I DRINK YOUR BLOOD” – McBastard’s Mausoleum

“It’s highly unlikely that I DRINK YOUR BLOOD could look better than this; it’s quite an impressive piece of transfer work. Absolutely not to be overlooked is THE BLUE SEXTET…what’s on display here is definitely way beyond what a ’71 R rating would allow including a lingering and graphic disembowelment, satanic rituals, copious female and male nudity, and a third act orgy scene that goes about as far as softcore would allow at the time.” – Mondo Digital

Grindhouse Releasing Announces I DRINK YOUR BLOOD Blu-ray!

IDYB_O-card_Aug18_rev2

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Grindhouse Releasing, the award-winning “Criterion of cult movie labels”, has set a Nov. 22 street date for the new deluxe Blu-ray edition of David E. Durston’s gruesome and graphically violent 1971 horror favorite I DRINK YOUR BLOOD. It’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD meets the Manson Family in this gore-drenched tale of LSD-crazed hippies who go on a murderous rampage through a small town after consuming rabies-injected meat pies!

Grindhouse Releasing’s deluxe 2-disc Blu-ray set not only presents the ultra-violent, uncensored director’s cut of I DRINK YOUR BLOOD in a new hi-def transfer but also includes two more vintage exploitation films in their HD debut: Del Tenney’s I EAT YOUR SKIN (1964) and Durston’s long-unseen, X-rated psychedelic shocker BLUE SEXTET (1969). Packed with new bonus features not seen on Grindhouse Releasing’s 2002 DVD release, the I DRINK YOUR BLOOD Blu-ray is the ultimate edition of a notorious “Blood Horror” classic.

The first film to be rated X for violence, I DRINK YOUR BLOOD was a huge-grossing hit at drive-ins and “grindhouse” theaters but was severely censored during its original release.

Grindhouse Releasing’s uncut, restored version of I DRINK YOUR BLOOD recently debuted in New York and Los Angeles and is now playing theaters across the U.S. and Canada.

“I DRINK YOUR BLOOD is one of the most infamous movies in the history of exploitation films,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski. “Rescuing this lost gem was one of our most important achievements. And being able to finally unite I DRINK YOUR BLOOD with its legendary co-feature I EAT YOUR SKIN, both fully remastered in stunning HD for the very first time, takes that accomplishment one step further. We’ve spent almost a decade working on this release, and I feel it’s our finest yet. I’m also thrilled that so many theaters are playing I DRINK YOUR BLOOD. We’ve been trying to make this happen for years and have finally succeeded. Seeing this movie on the big screen with an audience is a mind-blowing experience. No self-respecting horror fan should miss this rare opportunity.”

I DRINK YOUR BLOOD stars Bhaskar, John Damon, and cult superstar Lynn Lowry (George A. Romero’s THE CRAZIES, David Cronenberg’s THEY CAME FROM WITHIN, and Paul Schrader’s THE CAT PEOPLE).

A limited run of 3,000 copies of the Blu-ray will include the official “I DRINK YOUR BLOOD Horror Hypo” – an actual syringe that fans can use to infect their friends with rabies! Supplies of the Horror Hypo are not expected to last long, so fans should pre-order from DiabolikDVD.com to get the best shot at receiving one!

Cat_Slip

The Most VIOLENT Movie Ever Made – Starring Godfather Of Gore Lucio Fulci!

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Grindhouse Releasing has set a July 12 street date for the new deluxe 3-disc Blu-ray edition of Lucio Fulci’s nightmare classic CAT IN THE BRAIN. The movie will be touring theaters all over the U.S. this summer, starting June 2.

CAT IN THE BRAIN is a psychological masterpiece in the tradition of such cinematic classics as PSYCHO, STRAIT-JACKET, ERASERHEAD and Fellini’s 8 1/2. Acclaimed Italian horror maestro Lucio Fulci, director of ZOMBIE and THE BEYOND, stars in this blood-soaked epic as a director being driven insane by his own movies. Fulci is thrust into an ultra-violent nightmare of death and depravity where murder and madness consume his sanity in a vortex of violence.

“CAT IN THE BRAIN is my favorite Fulci movie,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski. “How could it not be? It’s wall-to-wall gore and stars Lucio Fulci playing himself. It delivers on all levels.”

As with Grindhouse Releasing’s #1 best-selling smash PIECES, the new Blu-ray release of CAT IN THE BRAIN will be issued in two versions: the standard release, and a special edition for collectors limited to 3,000 copies.

The limited version of the CAT IN THE BRAIN Blu-ray includes a glow-in-the-dark slipcover and an original portrait of Lucio Fulci created especially for this release.

Grindhouse Releasing advises all customers who want to be guaranteed a copy of the limited edition to pre-order from Diabolik DVD, as Diabolik customers will get first priority and will receive the set early.

Supplies are not expected to last long — if you do not pre-order from Diabolik DVD, there is no guarantee of receiving one of the limited collector’s copies.

As an additional exclusive, Diabolik DVD is offering a special bundle that includes the CAT IN THE BRAIN Blu-ray and the official Lucio Fulci bobblehead from Cult Colletibles. This offer is limited to 500 copies, as these are the last of the numbered Lucio Fulci “Weird Wobbler” bobbleheads – when they’re gone, they’re gone!

“The fun never stops! Sadism, carnage, brutality, lust and utter psychosis delivered as only Lucio Fulci can.”

– CLIVE BARKER, director of HELLRAISER

Duke Mitchell’s GONE WITH THE POPE: It’s A Hit!

GWTP-10AGWTP-117

This Easter, home video audiences are celebrating the miraculous resurrection of Duke Mitchell’s GONE WITH THE POPE, the long-lost follow up to the smash hit MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE! At last, the cult hit hailed as “a glorious masterpiece” (Detroit Metro Times) is here on home video!

GWTP-01

Legendary nightclub entertainer, crooner and “Mr. Palm Springs” Duke Mitchell stars in GONE WITH THE POPE as a gangster with an unholy scheme: to kidnap the Pope in exchange for the ransom of a dollar from every Catholic in the world! Duke Mitchell filmed GONE WITH THE POPE in 1975, but the movie was left unfinished at the time of his passing in 1981. Sage Stallone and Bob Murawski of Grindhouse Releasing rediscovered GONE WITH THE POPE in 1995 and vowed to save it from obscurity. Academy Award-winning film editor Murawski (THE HURT LOCKER, SPIDER MAN 1, 2 & 3, ARMY OF DARKNESS) spent 15 years completing GONE WITH THE POPE from the surviving film elements. The result is the Holy Grail of Exploitation Cinema!

GONE WITH THE POPE played exclusively in 35mm at theaters and festivals around the globe for five years. The film has played repeatedly to an enthusiastic cult audience at the Quentin Tarantino-owned New Beverly Cinema in L.A. and the fantastic story of its unlikely rescue and restoration was featured in Variety, LA Weekly, Movieline, and the Los Angeles Times.

Now Grindhouse Releasing has at last answered years of worldwide demand for GONE WITH THE POPE on home video with a stunning deluxe Blu-ray/DVD set…and it’s a hit! Customers are already calling it the cult Blu-ray release of the year!

http://www.amazon.com/Gone-With-Pope-Blu-ray-Combo/dp/B00TA9VS6C

Available now, along with Grindhouse Releasing’s acclaimed, best-selling new Blu-ray editions of MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE and Lucio Fulci’s THE BEYOND, Duke Mitchell’s GONE WITH THE POPE is being hailed as a miracle by fans and critics alike!

“There’s miracle work, and then…well, there’s this Blu-ray disc. I cannot get over how phenomenal Gone with the Pope looks in high-def. The clarity and staggering level of detail outclass just about every last Blu-ray release I’ve come across, regardless of age, budget, or marquee value. An absolutely incredible effort…Gone with the Pope is one of a kind: crude, violent, offensive, unapologetic, deeper than it lets on, and a hell of a lot of fun. I doubt if there’s any other filmmaker, dead or alive, who could pull this off the way Duke Mitchell does. I defy anyone not to be floored by the complete package that Grindhouse has assembled here, one that’s twenty years in the making. The visual and aural presentation eclipse anything I ever could’ve dreamt possible for a lost production like this, and the sprawling selection of extras hammer home just how much of a labor of love this is. Highly Recommended.” – DVD Talk

GWTP-09

“Gone With The Pope is testament to how ambition and passion are always more important than a big budget or a famous cast. It’s a film like no other, an eighty-two minute barrage of ideas that are simultaneously insane and profound as Mitchell takes on the hypocrisy of organized religion without ever really writing off the spiritual side of life. It’s a skewed and strange vision to be sure but it’s relentlessly entertaining, as politically incorrect as they come and really just a wild ride all together. Grindhouse Releasing have rolled out the red carpet for the film, giving it the best possible presentation and jamming the disc with extras that are as interesting as they are comprehensive.” – Rock! Shock! Pop!

“Grindhouse Releasing kills it with this release of a long lost and unfinished film that will turn in to a classic piece of exploitation. A beautiful restoration job and lovingly packed with special features, GONE WITH THE POPE is a must own for any exploitation film fan!” – Celluloid Terror

“Grindhouse Releasing’s work here has resulted in one of their finest achieve­ments. They went beyond hon­or­ing a film’s legacy here: they actu­ally res­ur­rected, restored and fin­ished an aban­doned work. They really earned their tag as “the Criterion Collection of exploita­tion” with this impres­sive set.” – Schlockmania

“I’m happy to say that it was worth the wait. Gone with the Pope – as well as Grindhouse Releasing’s presentation of it – surpassed any expectation that I had. Very weird, very 70s, and very much the product of an individual who knew exactly what he wanted. It’s a shame that Duke Mitchell didn’t live long enough to see his work get the treatment that it is getting now, but he can rest easy know that it is in great hands and it looks f*cking amazing. Another indispensable release from Grindhouse Releasing.” – Paracinema

GONE WITH THE POPE is continuing to run in 35mm in theaters. The movie was featured in the 2015 Boston Underground Film Festival and opens this Friday, April 10 at the Gateway Film Center in Columbus, OH. http://gatewayfilmcenter.com/gone-with-the-pope-35mm/
