Rosebud Releasing Corporation

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Rosebud Releasing Corporation was a distribution company that only released one film, Evil Dead II, made by De Laurentiis Entertainment Group. Some sources believe that Rosebud might have been a shell corporation created by De Laurentiis solely to release it unrated after the Motion Picture Association of America classified it with an "X" (now equivalent to NC-17) rating.
