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.

CITB-bluCAT 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.

CITB-wobblerAs 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 Collectibles. 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!
