The Company...

Grindhouse Releasing was founded by Sage Stallone(yes, it's who you think it is)
and Bob Murawski(film editor). Grindhouse Releasing's mission is the pursuit, restoration, and preservation of lost cult classics. Stallone and Murawski go to great lengths finding these films due to foreign travel, original material scarcity, securing copyrights, and censorship issues. The company has a short list of their distributed films due to the work they put into restoring the films.

The Films...

The majority of Grindhouse Releasing films have a history of hate from critics, censorship by governments, and cult followings in the underground. The top selling film by Grindhouse Releasing may be Ruggero Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust. The infamous Cannibal Holocaust is hated by general society and loved by the underground due to it's shocking depictions of cannibalism, racism and violence involving documentarians and Amazon aboriginals. The film was mistaken to be genuine which caused criminal charges to be filed against Deodato and his crew. The charges were dropped after the snuff myths were debunked. The company is also known for distributing a similar cannibal film by Umberto Lenzi titled Cannibal Ferox. Like Cannibal Holocaust, Ferox also shocked audiences with similar content though Ferox was not mistakened to be snuff. Away from the cannibal genre, Grindhouse Releasing also distributes Lucio Fulci's The Beyond and Cat in the Brain. Lucio Fulci was scorned by critics but still has a cult following after his death. Fulci's films are known for unique gore effects, unique score, and either having zombies or surrealism. Other than horror, Fulci directed comedy and westerns. Other films released by Grindhouse Releasing include Spanish slasher Pieces with a chainsaw wielding maniac, I Drink Your Blood with a rapid hippie, An American Hippie in Israel(coming soon) about hippies living in a rapidly dissolving peace, Umberto Lenzi's police thriller The Tough Ones(coming soon), and black comedy Gone with the Pope(coming soon) about guys involved in a heist against the Roman Catholic Church.
