Grindhouse Releasing: The Beyond and Cannibal Holocaust Blu-ray Releases Coming Up

Posted March 12, 2014 06:07 AM by Webmaster

Grindhouse ReleasingIndependent U.S. distributors Grindhouse Releasing have confirmed that they will release on Blu-ray Lucio Fulci's cult film The Beyond (1981), starring Catriona MacColl, David Warbeck, Cinzia Monreale, and Veronica Lazar, and Ruggero Deodato's controversial film Cannibal Holocaust (1980), starring Robert Kerman, Francesca Ciardi, Perry Pirkanen, and Luca Barbareschi. Preliminary street dates for these upcoming releases have not yet been revealed.

The Beyond

A young woman from New York named Liza (Katherine MacColl) inherits a Louisiana motel that has been unoccupied for nearly 60 years. While restoring the old building, many of the workers meet mysterious and untimely deaths, each more ill-fated than the next. Furthermore, Liza is visited by a blind specter named Emily (Sarah Keller) who lectures from a 4,000-year-old book of collected prophecies that explains the motel is situated above one of seven portals to hell. As her sanity dwindles, Liza finds some much-needed stability in a local doctor named John McCabe (David Warbeck), who is determined to find a rational explanation for the recent state of affairs. Nevertheless, the protagonists are led through a maze of bizarre confrontations with beings beyond the realm of the living, and into an apocalyptic world of unknown horrors. The Beyondis at once the quintessential Lucio Fulci film and a staple in the overall Italian horror genre. The director's epic masterpiece is a blend of atmospheric surrealism and nightmarish visions (a grisly tarantula attack, flesh-melting acid spills, a softball-sized gun blast through the skull of a young zombified girl, and an eyeball impaling or two) that are definitely unsuitable for those with weak stomachs.

Cannibal Holocaust

Banned and heavily censored the world over, here is a film that surpasses its reputation as a shot-gun blast to the senses. Cannibal Holocaust presents the "found footage" of a group of four documentary filmmakers who experience brutal death at the hands of a savage South American tribe of flesh-eaters. This footage is so intense, so graphic and so unflinching in its realism that the director and producer of Cannibal Holocaust were arrested upon its original release and the film seized. With a soundtrack by Riz Ortolani.

Will buy The Beyond. I used to have the Anchor Bay Collector's Tin DVD years ago until some P.O.S. broke into my house, and stole that, End of Days DVD, 2 Insomniac with Dave Attell sets, a few video games, my weed, a lamp, and then took a dump in my toilet. I mean, really? That's what you're gonna steal?! And thanks for not flushing, dick. Anyway, been looking forward to enjoying the film again. Grindhouse did a great job with their "Corruption" release.

Already have the DVD tin, Arrow first printing bluray, Arrow 2nd printing with fixed opening scene, and the Arrow steelbook. You snooze you lose Grindhouse! Shouldn't sit on a hot catalog title like that.

csdot: If they're using a different master, there's potential for this one to make those Arrow discs totally undesirable outside of the collectible packaging aspect. Certainly room for improvement - even the corrected disc is very weak in regards to PQ. It looks far better than the DVD, but compared to the better looking Eurocult titles on BD - it's crap.

I've got the arrow steelbook for The Beyond. No complaints so no double-dip there. I'm iffy on Cannibal Holocaust. I want to see it just for its controversial factor. But not sure if I would want to own it.

I'll get both. The Arrow edition of The Beyond doesn't look great, their transfers have improved imeasurably since those days.

Umm... not to be that guy, but hasn't Grindhouse more or less confirmed these two titles for blu months ago? Don't get me wrong, I REALLY want to get these two (yes, I have the Arrow blu of Beyond as well), but it just seems like we should have a release date for these by now. Hell, Fangoria printed an interview with Bob Murawski in which they tentatively labeled CH as coming out in February... don't think that's happening now ;-p

And Philly Q, couldn't agree more about Arrow. They were still working their way up when making The Beyond, thus the digital anomalies that kept it from being definitive. A case of "looks good... for now", but like many others here, the Grindhouse version will most likely top the Arrow edition. But I'm still keeping my Arrow release for the extras... digital and physical :-p

I'm in for The Beyond (whenever it shows up). If anyone is on the fence about Cannibal Holocaust, I noticed it was on Hulu a few days ago, so you may want to watch it there first, if you can. I bought the dvd years ago to watch with a group of friends for the first time. We were drunk and it was a blast, but we pretty much decided that was the first and last time we needed to watch it.

I've heard about CH for awhile but have never seen it, may give it a look this time.

Cannibal Holocaust is a transgressive masterpiece. It's not a "fun film" and I don't think it's a good idea for anyone to blind buy it, as it certainly isn't for everyone. Just my two cents.

Arrow were at the mercy of the HD elements the rights-holder supplied, as said individual knocked-up their own master and only allowed Arrow to use that particular version. It would be great if they could take another crack at it in line with their current output, as the release of Zombie Flesh Eaters (AKA Zombi 2, Zombie, etc) shows what they can do with the best elements from Fulci movies from that era.

A true restoration in 2k or 4k of the Beyond would be fantastic, but if not hopefully Grindhouse will at least use a master from a fresh scan. Arrow's disc was riddled with horrible scanner noise from Lowry's scan and had awful colors, it resembled video as oppose to film. And please Grindhouse..original sound and no DNR.

@AlexIlDottore: Idk friend, that's what I was told about A Serbian Film and when I finally got around to watch it, I just scratched my head. I'm all but positive it's a dark comedy, it's weird and kinda gross but not nearly as 'shocking' as I'd been told.

@Josh B Thing is, whilst being gross out, Serbian Movie isn't even a well made film, unlike Cannibal Holocaust.

I bought the Arrow blu to replace my Anchor Bay DVD that I sold off moons ago. It may not be perfect, but I was pleased. I'm more interested in DEATH GAME, which they continue to not release. Anyone here have any inside info about that title? The old (bootleg?) DVD I saw was horrible but the movie was terrific.

Any word on restoration? Would LOVE to see "The Beyond" get a NEW 2K or 4K scan for its US blu ray debut. The Arrow disc looks pretty good (once they fixed their mess up and put the film on a 50 GB disc) but it could use a lot of tweaking in the video department. This classic has been mentioned for years from Grindhouse. FINALLY!!!

I've seen THE BEYOND once before and I hated it. Really really hated it! But for some reason I've felt compelled to rewatch it. I've got a copy of its excellent soundtrack which is probably one reason I want to give the film another shot.

Fingers crossed that Grindhouse Releasing will get around to giving PIECES the Blu-ray treatment sometime soon.

FlyBry, My house was broken into several years ago and they stole 300+ DVDs. It SUCKS. Man, did I cry. AND our insurance had lapsed so I wasn't compensated.

While I've already got the Arrow Blu-Ray of The Beyond (not to mention the Anchor Bay DVD tin), the PQ could be improved (as this was before Arrow stepped up their game). I'll likely check out the GR release.
