No luck so far

Though in the past Borders has been good about carrying movies from Grindhouse Releasing.

Probably will check out some big local DVD stores over the weekend.

Lots of stupid over-the-top violence and what we all came for: gratuitous nudity.
I was 16 or 17 when this came out. I & my retarded punk rock friends went to see it occupying almost the entire first row. When a kill scene was about to occur we were chanting, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" then start dancing around when the gore started. Christ, we were a*holes! I hereby apologize to any theater goers who were also there that night.

Wonder what the distribution for the DVD is like.

I went to my local chain store here in Northern California. They have an extensive Asian Horror/Exploitation section as well as a large Horror and Cult films section.

Couldn't find the DVD

Probably going to just order it now.

the alternate audio version is very interesting - I can see why they replaced the original music which is very piano heavy. There's an easter egg of

Spoiler:
of director Eli Roth explaining his pleasure of the film

Grindhouse is releasing Fulci's Cat in the Brain March 31st

http://www.dvddrive-in.com/features/...iecespromo.htm

Italian horror maestro's rare classic makes North American DVD premiere March 31

Grindhouse Releasing and Box Office Spectaculars are proud to present the North American DVD premiere of Italian horror maestro Lucio Fulci's ultra-violent classic CAT IN THE BRAIN.

The late, great Lucio Fulci is revered by horror movie fans around the world as the Italian “Godfather of Gore" for directing such films as ZOMBIE, THE BEYOND, and THE GATES OF HELL. CAT IN THE BRAIN is Fulci's ultimate statement about his own work, a masterpiece of cinematic dementia that echoes Hitchcock's PSYCHO, William Castle's STRAIT-JACKET, David Lynch's ERASERHEAD and Fellini's 8 1/2.

CAT IN THE BRAIN stars Fulci as himself in the twisted tale of a horror film director driven insane by his own creations. Tormented by visions of bizarre violence, murder and mayhem, Fulci seeks help from a sinister psychiatrist who draws him into a vortex of madness and death....like a cat, stalking the darkest corridors of the director's mind and clawing his sanity to bloody shreds.

Since its original release in 1990, CAT IN THE BRAIN has become a sought-after gem for Fulci fanatics, difficult to find and banned in the UK for its extreme graphic violence. The movie has won acclaim from modern masters of the macabre including Clive Barker and Eli Roth, director of HOSTEL and CABIN FEVER.

Grindhouse Releasing's deluxe edition of CAT IN THE BRAIN boasts a high-definition, widescreen anamorphic transfer of Fulci's uncensored director's cut, along with an amazing collection of bonus features.

Produced by Bob Murawski, the film editor of Sam Raimi's SPIDER-MAN 1, 2 & 3 and ARMY OF DARKNESS, this long-awaited release continues the commitment to excellence that established Grindhouse as a leader in the horror DVD market with its definitive releases of THE BEYOND, I DRINK YOUR BLOOD, PIECES, and CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST.
The 2-disc CAT IN THE BRAIN collector's set includes:
- An eye-popping, psychedelic lenticular 3-D cover, limited to the first 2,500 units only!
- Never-before-seen, in-depth interviews with Lucio Fulci and star Brett Halsey (REVENGE OF THE CREATURE, RETURN OF THE FLY, GODFATHER 3)
- English and original Italian-language soundtracks
- Lucio Fulci's heroic appearance at the 1996 FANGORIA Weekend of Horrors in New York City
- An extensive gallery of stills and poster art from around the world
- Liner notes by Antonella Fulci, acclaimed horror novelist David J. Schow, and director Eli Roth
- Original theatrical trailer
And more surprises!

CAT IN THE BRAIN arrives in stores March 31 through Ryko Filmworks. For more information, visit

just saw this...very fun! it was so poorly acted, god-awful effects and so schlocky that i actually enjoyed it quite a bit and will revisit it in time unlike some others in this vein that just don't do it for me. i guess since they played it serious it was better than the awfully acted trying to play it serious slashers of today.

but talk about your continuity errors from the 1942 prologue...push button phone, a Patriots banner, the house in general...just added to the charm i guess.

also, where is this Eli Roth easter egg? i would like to see that...

It's on disc 1. It's fairly easy to find if you've hunted for easter eggs.

Spoiler:
When "Play Movie" is highlighted, press up. If you didn't fuck things up, you should see a chainsaw appear

Somewhat appropriate, given the film.
