For decades, late Italian filmmaker Lucio Fulci disgusted and delighted audiences with his many gore films. In 1990, he turned the camera on himself for Cat in the Brain, a film in which he plays a horror a director being driven insane by his own movies. Now, for its first-ever domestic release, Grindhouse Releasing will being a newly restored, digital DCP transfer of the film to theaters across the US, including the Hollywood Theater.
Considered a psychological masterpiece in the tradition of Psycho, Strait-Jacket, Eraserhead and Fellini’s 8 1/2, Cat in the Brain finds Fulci thrust into an ultra-violent nightmare of death and depravity where murder and madness consume his sanity in a vortex of violence. The film features blood-soaked practical effects, a dark sense of humor and a soundtrack by composer Fabio Frizzi (Kill Bill: Vol. 1).
Cat in the Brain will screen at 10 p.m. on June 10th and June 11th. Tickets cost between $5 and $8 and are available for purchase at Showclix or at the door.
