Exclusive Grindhouse Blu-ray/DVD art: Peter Cushing’s “CORRUPTION”

CORRUPTIONBLURAYARTFEAT

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. See more info at Grindhouse’s official website and Facebook page.

    I dislike the cover art, particularly the second image, which surely Grindhouse don’t believe is acceptable in this day & age. Cushing described this film as ‘viciously sick’
    & whilst no one forced him to do it, it’s hardly representative of
    his career. The image of him cutting a woman’s throat delights in the
    idea of the meek Cushing doing such a thing. It’s disrespectful to his
    memory & cheap.

    Frankly to headline the cover ‘Peter Cushing’s 100th Birthday Special Edition’ & include an image of the great man slashing a woman’s throat is downright disgraceful. I hope this tacky & offensive cover will be changed. I actually may reconsider buying it if the cover remains.

    To be honest, it’s this kind of stuff that gives horror fans a bad name.
