Here is the press release info:

Grindhouse Releasing is proud to present the first-ever US home video release of CORRUPTION, the gory swinging 60s British horror thriller starring the legendary Peter Cushing as a surgeon driven to murder and madness. The special edition Blu-ray/DVD combo streets October 8th.

Grindhouse Releasing’s spectacular new hi-def presentation of CORRUPTION was created from original vault elements and restores scenes originally deemed too graphic for American audiences. Packed with a wealth of amazing bonus features, the disc is an essential purchase for horror fans on the occasion of Cushing’s centenary.

"Peter Cushing has always been my favourite actor," says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder and disc producer Bob Murawski. "Therefore I am absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to release CORRUPTION. It's an overlooked, underappreciated gem in the Cushing canon, a psychotic super-shocker that fully delivers in every way."

Specs for the CORRUPTION disc are as follows:

· 2 DISC SET - Deluxe dual layer Blu-ray Edition + DVD combo

· Spectacular new hi-definition digital restoration of the original uncensored version

· PLUS - the "International Version" of the movie with bloody violence and nudity presented for the very first time in America!

· Interviews with stars Wendy Varnals, Billy Murray, Jan Waters and Peter Cushing

· Audio commentary by acclaimed UK horror journalist Jonathan Rigby and Peter Cushing biographer David Miller

· Isolated music and effects track

· Liner notes by Allan Bryce, editor of the celebrated British horror magazine The Dark Side

· Extensive still galleries, trailers, TV spots and radio spots

· The original annotated director's shooting script and production notes

· Shocking reversible cover with original art by notorious illustrator Rick Melton

· Grindhouse Releasing prevues of coming attractions


CORRUPTION is among the first Grindhouse Releasing titles to hit Blu-ray, along with Amos Sefer’s cult classic AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL, which is expected to sell out its limited edition run based on current pre-orders. Both films will also be playing select theatres this fall.
