After the success of their Blu-ray release of PIECES earlier this year, I’m sure horror fans started wondering what would be the next film in Grindhouse Releasing’s catalog to get the Deluxe Blu-ray treatment. We can now tell you that that will be Lucio Fulci’s 1990 gore-soaked meta-film, A CAT IN THE BRAIN.
The movie, which stars the director playing a fictional version of himself, will be released in two editions: a standard Blu-ray and a 3-disc special edition which will be limited to 3000 copies. Not only that, Grindhouse will also be touring the film in theaters across the United States beginning June 2nd.
Extras for the Special Edition will include:
– Hi-definition digital restoration of the original UNCENSORED DIRECTOR’S CUT
– Presented with English and original Italian language soundtracks
– In-depth interviews with director Lucio Fulci and cult superstar Brett Halsey (REVENGE OF THE CREATURE, RETURN OF THE FLY, THE GODFATHER 3)
– New interviews with composer Fabio Frizzi, screenwriter Antonio Tentori, cinematographer Sandro Grossi and poster artist Enzo Sciotti
– Lucio Fulci’s heroic appearance at the 1996 NYC Fangoria Weekend of Horrors
– Original Italian theatrical trailer & gallery of stills and poster art
– Liner notes by Antonella Fulci, David J. Schow, Eli Roth and Martin Beine
– BONUS CD – the original soundtrack by Fabio Frizzi!
– Chilling GLOW-IN-THE-DARK slip cover – limited to first 3000 copies
– Mini portrait of Lucio Fulci – suitable for framing – limited to first 3000 copies
– PLUS OTHER SURPRISES!
According to their announcement,
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!
A CAT IN THE BRAIN is set for Blu-ray release on July 12th. Our sponsor, Grindhouse Video will be selling these as well. Keep an eye on our social media pages for pre-order info. If you want to experience the movie on the big screen, click this link to see all the screening dates.
