  • Grindhouse Releasing Bringing Fulci's Cat In The Brain To Blu-ray & Theaters!


    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!

    CAT IN THE BRAIN Blu-ray specs:
    - 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!

    Hope it looks better than the German Blu Ray.

      I actually really like CAT IN THE BRAIN, so I'm looking forward to it.

        I've watched the dvd one time & I liked it. All I remember is the repeated scenes of the head-crushing under a car? I'm not sure I need to upgrade until I come across the bd for as cheap as I can find it.

          I used to have the laserdisc of thia movie....thought it was great at the time...mostly because I didnt know what it was about before buying it ( ah..the beauty of life before the internet!!)

            anyone have playback issues with Disc 1 of the Grindhouse BR release?

            it will load but only show the menu screen background. no options to play movie or anything. Disc 2 works fine. saw a mention of a playback issue on in the forum for this title.

            i'm pretty positive i watched the bluray before but maybe it was the DVD edition...

            and out of curiosity i tried the BR Disc 1 on someone else's player and it worked fine with no issues. able to watch but not on my player

              Sounds like your player has an issue? Did you take a look at the back of the disc, maybe it needs a cleaning then try again in your machine.

              The only Blu I've had trouble with was Count Dracula's Great Love from VS. I can't remember what it did other than not play so I watched the dvd then cleaned the Blu & issues went away. Been meaning to check it out again.

                the disc is spotless. take good care of discs. no fingerprints. the disc will play in someone else's player but not mine. just loads the menu background image of fulci staring at the tv or whatever, no menu options.

                is the issue with the player?

                have never had an issue with the player before. then i saw this

                just curious if anyone else had an issue

                      Mine is a Sony player and it doesn't work. I actually tried it in 2 players both Sony. Maybe it only affects certain pressings. I bought mine a while after release. I emailed grindhouse but had no reply yet. Might just have to get the 88 version.

                        my player is a Sony. let me know if you hear anything from Grindhouse
