October is around the corner – and the newly re-energized home video arm of Grindhouse Releasing has a doozy of a release up its sleeve for this horror-loving month. The film in question is Corruption, an infamous English shocker that infuses the mad doctor film with the kind of sleaze that rose up during the permissiveness of the late ’60s. It’s also worth noting that Hammer icon Peter Cushing plays the mad doctor in this film – and it is easily the most outrageous role he ever played.

Rare Peter Cushing ’60s Super-Shocker Presented Uncut for the First Time in the U.S.!
HOLLYWOOD – Grindhouse Releasing is proud to present the first-ever U.S. home video release of CORRUPTION, the gory swinging ‘60s British thriller starring the legendary Peter Cushing as a surgeon driven to murder and madness. The special edition Blu-ray/DVD combo streets October 8 and is now available for pre-order from Amazon.com and Diabolik DVD.
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 favorite actor,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder and disc producer Bob Murawski. “Therefore I am absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to release CORRUPTION.
