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!

Grindhouse Releasing Brings Lucio Fulci’s ‘CAT IN THE BRAIN’ To Theaters, Blu-ray!

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!

– CLIVE BARKER, director of HELLRAISER
