Here’s a Look at the New, Very Limited CAT IN THE BRAIN Theatrical Poster!

Lucio Fulci’s gory meta movie CAT IN THE BRAIN is currently making its way through theatrical rerelease across the U.S. courtesy of Grindhouse Releasing. The company came up with a special poster exclusively to accompany the big-screen play, which you can see below.

“We only made a handful of these for the theaters; we’re not selling them,” Grindhouse’s David Szulkin told “It will probably end up being one of the rarest Lucio Fulci movie posters!”


CAT IN THE BRAIN, described as “the most violent movie ever made,” stars Fulci in a self-referential turn as a director of horror movies descending into madness brought on by his own gruesome images. It will be playing the following dates/venues through the end of the summer:

June 29: Alamo Drafthouse, Yonkers, NY
