    GRINDHOUSE RELEASING SETS ‘GONE WITH THE POPE’ BLU-RAY/DVD RELEASE!

    AT LAST! Grindhouse Releasing proudly presents the legendary lost classic!

    Duke Mitchell’s GONE WITH THE POPE

    2 DISC DELUXE EDITION – BLU-RAY + DVD COMBO

    Street Date: March 24, 2015



    Exclusive GONE WITH THE POPE Pre-Order from Diabolik DVD

    I WANT A DOLLAR FROM EVERY CATHOLIC IN THE WORLD!

    “A GLORIOUS MASTERPIECE!”
    - Jeff Meyers, Detroit Metro Times

    “An exemplary piece of exploitation entertainment”
    - Louis Albo, Los Angeles Times

    “Gloriously, hilariously offensive…an incredible hybrid, with Mitchell’s decidedly dated sensibility delivered in a modern, masterfully quick-cut package.”
    -Karina Longworth, LA Weekly

    "A far-out film…beautiful to look at, ridiculously entertaining!”
    - Jeffrey Root, Film Radar

    Lost for over 30 years, GONE WITH THE POPE stars famed nightclub performer Duke Mitchell as Paul, a paroled gangster with an unholy scheme: to kidnap the Pope and charge “a dollar from every Catholic in the world” as the ransom.

    Shot in 1975, GONE WITH THE POPE was unfinished at the time of Duke Mitchell’s death in 1981. Sage Stallone and Bob Murawski of Grindhouse Releasing rediscovered GONE WITH THE POPE in 1995 and vowed to save it from obscurity. Academy Award-winning film editor Murawski (THE HURT LOCKER, ARMY OF DARKNESS) spent 15 years completing GONE WITH THE POPE from the surviving film elements.

    Grindhouse Releasing proudly presents the Holy Grail of exploitation cinema!

    GONE WITH THE POPE has screened exclusively in cinemas since its sold-out Hollywood premiere in 2010. This home video debut follows Grindhouse Releasing’s Blu-ray/DVD release of Duke Mitchell’s MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE, now set to arrive Feb. 24 along with the company’s long-awaited Blu-ray edition of Lucio Fulci’s THE BEYOND.

    Grindhouse Releasing will celebrate the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD releases of MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE and GONE WITH THE POPE with a rare 35mm screening of both films Feb. 10 at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles.

    Duke Mitchell’s MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE and GONE WITH THE POPE are two of the most long-awaited and requested titles in the Grindhouse Releasing home video catalog. Founded in 1996 and known as the Criterion of cult cinema, Grindhouse Releasing has released Blu-ray editions of THE SWIMMER, starring Burt Lancaster, THE BIG GUNDOWN, starring Lee Van Cleef and Tomas Milian, CORRUPTION, starring Peter Cushing, and AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL, starring Asher Tzarfati and Shmuel Wolf, The company scored a #1 best-selling hit in 2014 with its deluxe Blu-ray release of Ruggero Deodato’s CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (the notorious inspiration for Eli Roth's THE GREEN INFERNO).

    I caved and ordered them separately. MMS has arrived, and judging by importCDs quick turnaround, I ordered GWTP Can't wait.

    Yeah, when it comes to shipping to Canada, if amazon.com and importcds/Diabolik are the same price or even slightly higher, I throw the money to the littler guys.

    Fantastic film with a killer soundtrack! If you have seen it BUY IT NOW!!!!

    Wow, I really enjoyed this. It's so New Jersey. Loved the cringe worthy jokes, the music, the all around bad taste and especially Duke Mitchell. Plus, the 5.1 soundtrack rocked. Haven't checked out the extras yet, but I applaud Grindhouse for the feature's presentation alone.

    I was rather disappointed...a big drop down from MAFIA. There are some transcendent moments but that's all they are, moments, & this is a far cry from a completed film.
