Grindhouse Releasing is bringing Sam Raimi’s original 1981 horror classic THE EVIL DEAD back to outdoor screens this summer!
We kicked off the release in Maine with a hit screening at the Prides Corner Drive-In. THE EVIL DEAD will invade Florida this week as the movie opens Thursday June 18 at drive-in theaters in Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa, and Lake Worth (tickets: FloridaSwapShop.com).
But that’s not all! This Friday, June 19, EVIL DEAD begins a week-long run at the Ford-Wyoming Drive-In (Dearborn, Mich.), the Auto Drive-In (Greenwood, SC), and the Capri Drive-Coldwater, Mich.) on a dynamite double-feature with David E. Durston’s horror classic I DRINK YOUR BLOOD!
On July 10 & 11 the Midway Drive-In (Sterling, Ill.) will host THE EVIL DEAD with star Bruce Campbell in person! The July 11 show will include two more Grindhouse Releasing hits: I DRINK YOUR BLOOD and THE BEYOND!
Stay tuned for more cities and show dates coming soon! And request EVIL DEAD at your local drive-in!

While quarantined in our underground bunker, the Grindhouse Releasing team is busy working on several new Blu-ray releases.
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 GALLERY, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, 24), plus more surprise bonus features! Check out these articles about the movie from Temple of Schlock (link) and the estimable Marc Edward Heuck (The Projector Has Been Drinking, (link), New Beverly Cinema (link).
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.

In 1980, Italian director Ruggero Deodato horrified unsuspecting audiences with his masterwork, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST.
Banned and heavily censored throughout the world, here is a film that surpasses its reputation as a shotgun blast to the senses.
CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST presents the ‘found footage’ of four documentary filmmakers who experience brutal death at the hands of a savage South American tribe of flesh-eaters. The footage is so intense so graphic and so unflinching in its realism that the director and producer of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST were arrested on its original release and the film was seized.
To commemorate the 40th anniversary, Grindhouse Releasing has released all-new merchandise from underground artist Maegan LeMay.
Not for the weak of stomach, the film’s horrifying power cannot be denied.
• One-time printing of military green CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST shirts are limited to 150.
• One-time printing of ‘retro’ prismatic stickers, strictly limited to 200 pieces.
We have extended our exclusive big-screen release of Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD with Joe LoDuca’s reimagined score into 2020. We are also the licensed North American theatrical distributor of the original EVIL DEAD in 35mm and digital.
