Hollywood Theater Remembers Lucio Fulci With ‘Cat In The Brain’


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.
