Grindhouse Releasing Preps “I DRINK YOUR BLOOD” Triple Feature Blu-Ray!Movies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
For fans of the more brazen, experimental, and shocking entries in the horror/exploitation genres, Grindhouse Releasing has become the gold standard with their loaded, collector-friendly home video releases. With titles like THE BEYOND, PIECES, and CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST to their label, Grindhouse Releasing specializes in giving the craziest cult titles the deluxe boutique label treatment, on par with the likes of The Criterion Collection. And once again, Grindhouse Releasing is bolstering their reputation among cult cinema collectors with their latest announced Blu-ray upgrade: David E. Durston’s I DRINK YOUR BLOOD!
Hitting the high-def format on November 8th with a nationwide theatrical tour already underway, Grindhouse Releasing is offering a 2-disc Blu-ray set for I DRINK YOUR BLOOD, which not only includes the newly-restored uncensored director’s cut, but two other feature films in HD as well: Del Tenney’s I EAT YOUR SKIN and Durston’s long-unseen BLUE SEXTET. The Blu-ray set also features deleted scenes, two audio commentaries, newly-produced interviews, and much, much more. And to top it all off, the first 3,000 copies of the Blu-ray will include the official, limited edition “I DRINK YOUR BLOOD Horror Hypo”- an actual syringe that fans can use to infect their friends with rabies.
If you’re unfamiliar with this demented drive-in staple, you can check out the trailer and Blu-ray artwork below…
“I DRINK YOUR BLOOD is one of the most infamous movies in the history of exploitation films,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski. “Rescuing this lost gem was one of our most important achievements. And being able to finally unite I DRINK YOUR BLOOD with its legendary co-feature I EAT YOUR SKIN, both fully remastered in stunning HD for the very first time, takes that accomplishment one step further. We’ve spent almost a decade working on this release, and I feel it’s our finest yet. I’m also thrilled that so many theaters are playing I DRINK YOUR BLOOD. We’ve been trying to make this happen for years and have finally succeeded. Seeing this movie on the big screen with an audience is a mind-blowing experience. No self-respecting horror fan should miss this rare opportunity.”
