Earlier this month we hit you with the news that Grindhouse Releasing would be bringing us Ruggero Deodato's controversial 1980 classic CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST to Blu-ray in the near future and now Grey Matter Art's Randy Ortiz has partnered with Grindhouse Releasing to create a limited edition poster for the film, and we've got your first look at these works of art below.
Via their official website:
Grey Matter Art is proud to announce, in partnership with Grindhouse Releasing, a limited edition screen print by artist Randy Ortiz for the iconic horror ﬁlm “Cannibal Holocaust”. Released in 1980 and directed by Ruggero Deodato, the ﬁlm is often referred to as “The most controversial movie ever made” and innovated the found footage style of narrative ﬁlm making. This will be the ﬁrst print release for Grey Matter Art, a new ofﬁcially licensed poster company who are based out of New York.
Grindhouse Releasing is a Hollywood-based independent cult ﬁlm distribution company headed up by acclaimed ﬁlm editor Bob Murawski and co-founded by the late director/actor Sage Stallone. Bob Murawski was awarded the 2010 Academy Award, BAFTA, and A.C.E. Award for “Best Film Editing” on the feature ﬁlm, THE HURT LOCKER, shared with co-editor and wife, Chris Innis. He often works with ﬁlm director Sam Raimi, having edited ARMY OF DARKNESS and the ﬁrst three original Columbia Pictures’ SPIDER-MAN ﬁlms. Grindhouse Releasing focuses on the distribution of rare and little-seen independent cult and “exploitation ﬁlms” and is considered the “Criterion” of horror ﬁlm distribution, employing the highest standards for quality and deluxe bonus materials on their releases.
