Grindhouse Releasing has signed a new deal to distribute its acclaimed home video releases through MVD Entertainment, starting March 12 with the worldwide release of the psycho thriller Impulse, starring William Shatner.
Impulse features Shatner in the most unhinged performance of his career as homicidal maniac Matt Stone, a con artist and gigolo who preys on rich widows, viciously murdering the victims of his playboy scam when he loses control of his sick psycho-sexual urges. The supporting cast includes Ruth Roman (The Baby, Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train), Kim Nicholas, Jenifer Bishop, and James Bond villain Harold “Oddjob” Sakata (Goldfinger) as Matt’s former cellmate “Karate Pete.”
About Grindhouse Releasing
Launched in 1996 by Sage Stallone and Bob Murawski, Grindhouse Releasing led the way to a physical media revolution as the first label to produce lavishly restored home video editions of Italian exploitation epics by Lucio Fulci, Umberto Lenzi, and Ruggero Deodato. In the U.S., the work of these directors had formerly been hacked up, re-titled and shown only in battered prints that were put through the meat-grinder of drive-ins and inner-city theaters, and cropped, murky tape transfers. Grindhouse Releasing came to the rescue, sparing no effort or expense to restore the fully uncut and uncensored luster to such films as Fulci’s The Beyond, Lenzi’s Cannibal Ferox, and Deodato’s widely banned, still controversial Cannibal Holocaust. The company has won worldwide acclaim for its high standard of quality, producing exhaustive bonus features to make each release as complete and definitive as possible.
The new deal with MVD Entertainment will bring Grindhouse Releasing’s lineup of movies to retailers and audiences around the world.
