I could be wrong, but September may be too long to wait.
Grindhouse Releasing has CORRUPTION (1968) and AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISREAL (1972) slated for blu-ray release September 10, 2013. It would be unlike them to release two more films in the same year. Their last DVD was in 2009, they had one in 2008, and a couple in 2006. Mostly they were a gore & splatter company that kept repackaging the same three or four titles over and over again (I DRINK YOUR BLOOD, CANNIBAL FEROX, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, THE BEYOND) in association with Image, Ryko, and Anchor Bay.
I am surprised at their acquisition of THE SWIMMER (1967) and THE BIG GUNDOWN. Neither are grindhouse or exploitation films. If they do come out with THE BIG GUNDOWN in 2014, it would probably be after Explosive Media's region-free, Limited Edition blu-ray has sold out. There's no guarantee Grindhouse Releasing will have licensed the uncut restoration.How do we know they won't be releasing the earlier transfer Koch released in Germany? That was uncut, but not a 4K scan. Unless you can get a statement from them on what they have planned and when, I'd grab the Explosive Media blu-ray while it's still easy to get.
