Grindhouse Releasing has teamed with legendary composer Fabio Frizzi to present a brand-new version of THE BEYOND, director Lucio Fulci’s 1981 horror masterpiece starring Catriona MacColl, David Warbeck and Cinzia Monreale.
Premiering this fall in theatrical release from Grindhouse, THE BEYOND: THE COMPOSER’S CUT features Fabio Frizzi’s new score for THE BEYOND with a brand-new 4K presentation of THE BEYOND newly scanned from the original camera negatives.
“Fulci fans will definitely want to see this on the big screen for the maximum impact,” said Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski. “It’s the best the movie has ever looked and a whole new experience in terror with Fabio’s brilliant new score!”
After a years-long multidimensional odyssey as the editor of Sam Raimi’s DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, Murawski is now finishing 4K UHD HDR disc editions of THE BEYOND and Ruggero Deodato’s CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST.
Murawski also confirmed work is close to complete on two sought-after ’70s thrillers coming soon to Blu-ray from Grindhouse: HOLLYWOOD 90028, screening next month at Quentin Tarantino’s New Beverly Cinema, and William Grefe’s IMPULSE, starring William Shatner.
Grindhouse will also be releasing Blu-ray editions of two Texas indies: S.F. Brownrigg’s SCUM OF THE EARTH and Palmer Rockey’s magnum opus LOVE IS DEEP INSIDE.
Grindhouse Releasing’s latest hit is Peter S. Traynor’s psycho thriller DEATH GAME, starring Seymour Cassel, Sondra Locke and Colleen Camp. DEATH GAME screens next at the 2022 L’Etrange Film Festival in Paris and is now available on Blu-ray at GrindhouseReleasing.com.
Grindhouse Releasing is proud to announce that Peter S. Traynor’s DEATH GAME is an official selection of the 29th annual L’Étrange Festival, taking place September 6-18, 2022 in Paris.
“DEATH GAME has been selected for our branded ‘Forgotten Gems’ program, which is dedicated to audacious and underrated classics,” said Frédéric Temps, General delegate for L’Étrange Festival. “Since its inception, L’Étrange Festival has showcased the most exciting examples of genre cinema from every corner of the globe, ranging from provocative thrillers, controversial documentaries, eccentric comedies or any other works that might be coined as ‘unconventional’ or ‘genre-defying’. Supporting original and independent-minded films that are flying under the radar is precisely why L’Étrange Festival was launched in the first place.”
Grindhouse Releasing’s 4K widescreen restoration of DEATH GAME is touring theaters in the U.S. with the next screening set for August 12 at Screenland Armour in Kansas City.

“OUTRAGEOUS, thanks to the memorable, go-for-broke, performances by Sondra Locke and Colleen Camp who are sexy, bonkers and surprisingly scary. This 4K restoration is another exciting release from Grindhouse. And a labor of love- it took years to get here and is so worth it. You can finally appreciate the moody cinematography of David Worth and great production design by Jack Fisk. ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES.” Dennis Dermody, OriginalCinemaniac.com
