Honoring Cushing's 100th birthday this year, Grindhouse has unveiled the complete details on the Corruption Blu-ray/DVD combo, scheduled for release on October 8th. The new HD presentation was mastered from original vault elements and restores graphic scenes that were cut from the US release. Disc features include the following:
  • Interviews with stars Wendy Varnals, Billy Murray, Jan Waters and Peter Cushing
  • Audio commentary by acclaimed UK horror journalist Jonathan Rigby and Peter Cushing biographer David Miller
  • Isolated music and effects track
  • Liner notes by Allan Bryce, editor of the celebrated British horror magazine The Dark Side
  • Extensive still galleries, trailers, TV spots and radio spots
  • The original annotated director's shooting script and production notes
  • Shocking reversible cover with original art by notorious illustrator Rick Melton
  • Grindhouse Releasing prevues of coming attractions

"Peter Cushing has always been my favorite actor," says Grindhouse co-founder Bob Murawski. "Therefore I am absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to release Corruption. It's an overlooked, under-appreciated gem in the Cushing canon, a psychotic super-shocker that fully delivers in every way."

You can preorder the Corruption combo right now at Amazon and Diabolik DVD. In the meantime, dig the trippy trailer:
