Grindhouse Releasing Blu-ray News!

We hope all our fans around the world are staying safe during the pandemic. Wash your hands, stay inside, and practice social distancing with our Blu-ray releases of such antisocial films as I DRINK YOUR BLOODCORRUPTION, and CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST!

While quarantined in our underground bunker, the Grindhouse Releasing team is busy working on several new Blu-ray releases.

HOLLYWOOD 90028

Christina Hornisher’s HOLLYWOOD 90028 (a.k.a. TWISTED THROATS and THE HOLLYWOOD HILLSIDE STRANGLER) was transferred in 4K from the original camera negative salvaged from a Hollywood dumpster!  

The HOLLYWOOD 90028 Blu-ray will include an interview with The Strangler himself, Christopher Augustine of Every Mother’s Son and Elephant, esteemed editor Leon Ortiz-Gil (THE NIGHT GALLERYBATTLESTAR GALACTICA24), plus more surprise bonus features!

DEATH GAME

Director Peter S. Traynor with Seymour Cassel and Sondra Locke on the set of DEATH GAME

Produced with the full cooperation of director Peter S. Traynor and director of photography David Worth, our gorgeous restoration of DEATH GAME presents the movie for the first time in its full Panavision glory. The 4K scan was made from the original camera negative. While our planned theatrical premiere is on hold, we’re now assembling the extra features including Traynor’s final career interview, filmed just weeks before his passing with director Eli Roth, as well as new interviews with star Colleen Camp and producer Larry Spiegel.


SCUM OF THE EARTH

The deluxe Blu-ray edition of S.F. Brownrigg’s SCUM OF THE EARTH  (a.k.a. POOR WHITE TRASH PART II) contains exclusive interviews with the entire cast – Norma Moore, Gene Ross, Ann Stafford, Camilla Carr, Charlie Dell, Joel Colodner, and Hugh Feagin – plus cameraman and film editor Brian H. Hooper, script supervisor Jackie Barnes, production manager Jake Jacobie, and others. A documentary about S.F. Brownrigg produced by David Szulkin and Bob Murawski is now in post with editor Paul Hart.
