Robert Hartford-Davisí CORRUPTION (1968) uncut from Grindhouse Releasing 10/8!

Another amazing announcement from Grindhouse Releasing, itís the hi-def, uncut debut of Robert Hartford-Davisí CORRUPTION (1968)! Genre stalwart Peter Cushing stars as an upper-crust surgeon who accidentally disfigures his model fiancťís face during an argument. Naturally, he discovers the only cure is to extract pituitary fluid from nubile young women, which leads him on a crazed quest to harvest the heads of swinginí Londonís bustiest birds! Youíve never seen Cushing like this, and 45 years later several sequences still pack a nasty punch you wonít believe. Long impossible to find uncensored in good quality, Grindhouse now seek to rectify the situation with their restoration, packed to the gills with supplements in their usual tradition. Announced extras include multiple versions, extensive interviews (including Cushing Ė canít wait to hear his thoughts on this one!), commentary, isolated score, trailers, stills, the annotated script and more!

I love this movie. I have a bootleg of the uncut international cut which is nigh on unwatchable so this is a day one BD for me. Just checked Amazon and its region free too!!!!

The cover's actually reversible, with an even sleazier flipside!

Gotcha -- the cover art is reversible, hence the confusion. Regardless, that link's actually to the sales sheet that's sent to distributors and retailers, and not the back of the box.

Cant wait for this. The reviewer doesent say whether the international cut is in worse shape than the theatrical cut though. Need a Beaver review with some nice juicy screen caps now.

Never saw this before, but I too am a very big fan of Peter Cushing. I pre-ordered last week.
