Exclusive Grindhouse Blu-ray/DVD art: Peter Cushing’s “CORRUPTION”
To celebrate Peter Cushing’s 100th birthday this year, Grindhouse Releasing is bringing his little-seen 1968 shocker CORRUPTION to disc, and we’ve got the exclusive first peek at the two versions of the cover art (one rather risque).
Grindhouse issues CORRUPTION as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack October 8, with specs and special features to be announced. Directed by Robert Hartford-Davis, the film (a.k.a. CARNAGE) is a variation on the EYES WITHOUT A FACE theme in which Cushing takes an atypical villainous role as Sir John Rowan, a surgeon whose model fiancée (Sue Lloyd) gets into a horrible accident that disfigures her. Desperate to restore her looks, Rowan murders a series of young women to claim their pituitary fluid. Grindhouse will give CORRUPTION a series of theatrical screenings as well, and is doing the same for AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL, GONE WITH THE POPE and others.
