“Grindhouse Releasing’s CORRUPTION Blu-ray is a superb package with print quality to die for…FIVE STARS!” – The UK Peter Cushing Appreciation Society
“Far removed from the Hammer fare that defined horror for generations of Brits, CORRUPTION is pure grindhouse. Given its execution, it’s only appropriate that Grindhouse Releasing should be responsible for CORRUPTION’s glorious arrival on Blu-ray…a fascinating gem.” – Rue Morgue
“DISC OF THE MONTH…the widescreen transfers are very fine, rich in color and detail, and accompanied by a staggering amount of supplements for a vintage picture. Foremost is a first-rate commentary by ‘English Gothic’ author Jonathan Rigby and Cushing biographer David Miller…A top-notch package.” – Michael Gingold, Fangoria
“The care Grindhouse has taken with this release elevates the film and makes it a must-purchase for serious fans; in fact, this may be the best a British horror movie of this vintage ever has looked on disc. (The cinematography is by Peter Newbrook, whose second-unit credits include ‘Lawrence of Arabia.’) Add a wealth of extras — including an audio commentary featuring film historian/author Jonathan Rigby (‘English Gothic: A Century of Horror Cinema’) and Cushing biographer David Miller — and you’ve got a candidate for top genre release of the year.” – John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal
“Corruption is a terrific little thriller, rescued from obscurity and given A-list treatment on disc. This is the kind of release that can get you excited about the possibilities of home video again.” – Adam Jahnke, The Digital Bits
“One of the most gloriously insane finales I’ve ever witnessed, and whenever you think CORRUPTION has reached its most crazed crescendo, there’s something more unhinged lurking around the bend. CORRUPTION would be deliriously fun no matter who was in the lead role, but the presence of a master like Peter Cushing elevates it to such heights…This Blu-ray release is a full-blown special edition that piles on two different cuts of the film, and the presentations are about as flawless as I could ever hope to see or hear. Very, very HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!” – DVD Talk
