Default Arrow's Q4 2012 Annoucement!

Ladies and gentlemen, fans of cult films, here is the new and very exciting annoucement from Arrow Video! Enjoy...

Arrow Video's Q4 2012 Announcement!



Super Bitch aka Blue Movie Blackmail (Arrow Video DVD)



THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU HIRE HER

Blue movie blackmail and sexual depravity are at the heart of a wicked scam to manipulate rich, perverted men in this softcore pasta crime classic from Massimo Dallamano, cinematographer on A Fistful of Dollars and director of Giallo favourite What Have You Done To Solange?

Italian trash cinema icon Ivan Rassimov is a police inspector working undercover to expose a London escort agency where the frequently naked Stephanie Beacham is being filmed in sexually compromising situations with her moneyed clients. These poor chumps will soon be smuggling drugs across international borders for her and her shadowy associates.

Wallow in the sleaze and enjoy the depravity of Super Bitch, a film with all the car chases, murder, sex and moral ambiguity a cult movie fan could possibly want.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
- New widescreen transfer in the original ratio
- Newly translated optional English subtitles
- Optional English and Italian audio tracks
- BULLETS, BABES AND BLOOD: THE HIGH OCTANE ACTION OF THE ITALIAN POLICE FILM - Legendary directors Ruggero Deodato, Sergio Martino and Brit filmmaker Darren Ward and critic Paolo Zelati, discuss the sex, style and shootouts that typified the Italian crime-caper
- RUGGERO DEODATO REMEMBERS IVAN RASSIMOV - An affectionate look back at the veteran Italian exploitation actor and SUPER BITCH leading man
- Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by author and critic Calum Waddell
- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys

DVD RRP 15.99
DVD Region FREE
Release Date 29/10/12

The Night Child aka The Cursed Medallion (Arrow Video DVD)



YOU’LL NEED MORE THAN AN EXORCIST TO SAVE THE NIGHT CHILD

When a documentarian delves into the dark world of satanic art for a new film, he unearths a disturbing painting that leads him into a world of post-Exorcist Italo-Horror where cursed medallions, possessed children and the overwhelming power of the dark lord converge to create a visually stunning and wildly eccentric exploitation classic from Massimo Dallamano (Venus in Furs, What Have You Done With Solange?)

With Italian cult cinema child star Nicoletta Elmi (Who Saw Her Die?, A Bay of Blood) as the motherless, demon-demented daughter and Zombie Flesh Eaters’ Richard Johnson as the filmmaker searching for the evil truth, The Night Child is a perfect example of expertly shot, beautifully crafted B-cinema.

See a young girl descend into the hellish pit of demonic possession in The Night Child, a textbook example of 70s euro-horror from an Italian exploitation master.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
- New widescreen transfer in the original ratio
- Newly translated optional English subtitles
- Optional English and Italian audio tracks
- EXORCISM ITALIAN-STYLE: Author and critic Paolo Zelati, filmmaker Luigi Cozzi and screenwriter Antonio Tentori reflect on the brief boom in pasta-possession movies which rushed out of Rome in the wake of William Friedkin's classic THE EXORCIST.
- Original Italian and US trailers
- Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by author and critic Calum Waddell
- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys

DVD RRP 15.99
DVD Region FREE
Release Date 29/10/12

Christmas Evil aka You Better Watch Out (Arrow Video DVD)



BETTER WATCH OUT… BETTER NOT CRY… OR YOU MAY DIE!

When little Harry sees his Dad in a Santa Claus outfit, groping his mother one Christmas Eve, life changes for the quiet little boy. Thirty odd years later, you’d better watch out in this 80s horror classic from the small but perfectly formed micro-genre of Yuletide Slashers.

Because now - all grown up and disgruntled by his dead end job in a depressing toy factory - he’s making a list, checking it twice and descending into a self-created Christmas nightmare where he is Father Christmas and his judgement is final! Dressed as St. Nick, Harry is going to show his bullying co-workers and all the other naughty people what the true spirit of the season is... Run for your miserable lives, the vengeance is going to be swift and bloody!

In your hands is a true dark Christmas oddity that cult movie kingpin John Waters described as "greatest Christmas movie ever made."

SPECIAL FEATURES:
- New widescreen transfer in the original ratio of the Director’s Cut
- Audio commentary with director Lewis Jackson
- Audio commentary with Lewis Jackson and director John Waters
- Original story-board sequences
- Comment Cards
- Rare audition tapes
- Collector’s booklet featuring writing on the film by critic and author Kim Newman, John Waters and a new introduction by Lewis Jackson, illustrated with original stills

DVD RRP 15.99

Release Date 12/11/12

Zombie Flesh Eaters (Arrow Video Blu-ray SteelBook and separate Blu-ray and DVD sets)







THEY WILL RISE TO SUCK THE BLOOD OF THE LIVING!

From the sleazy video nasty vaults comes a movie so stained with controversy and moral indignation that the very mention of its name sends shudders down the spines of the weak stomached and censorious – Zombie Flesh Eaters. A gut-munching, shark wrestling, eye-gouging orgy of topless skin divers, mud-caked undead terror and Italian splatter from the dark imagination of horror genius Lucio Fulci (The Beyond, City of The Living Dead).

An abandoned boat in New York Harbour unleashes a deadly flesh crazed Zombie cargo... A Young American woman and a journalist investigate a tropical island where a deadly disease is making the dead walk... Soon, thoughts of getting to the bottom of the murderous curse will be forgotten, as Fulci’s walking corpses overwhelm the living and reports come in that the Big Apple is swarming with the living dead...

After over thirty years, Zombie Flesh Eaters still has the power to shock and offend the unwilling... Check out this classic ‘sadist video’ and revel in a wonderfully offensive movie that once helped usher in a moral panic!

STRONG UNCUT VERSION!

SPECIAL FEATURES:
- Brand new high definition restoration

- Presented on both High Definition Blu-ray and Standard Definition DVD

- Optional English SDH subtitles on the feature

- Audio commentary with screenwriter Elisa Briganti moderated by Calum Waddell

- ALIENS, CANNIBALS AND ZOMBIES: A TRILOGY OF ITALIAN TERROR: Actor Ian McCulloch remembers his three classics of Latin horror lunacy - ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS, CONTAMINATION and ZOMBI HOLOCAUST

- FROM ROMERO TO ROME: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE ITALIAN ZOMBIE FILM: Veteran Fulci screenwriters Dardano Sacchetti (THE BEYOND) and Antonio Tentori (CAT IN THE BRAIN), celebrated UK critic Kim Newman and filmmakers Luigi Cozzi (CONTAMINATION), Ruggero Deodato (CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST), Russ Streiner (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) plus many more share memories of the genesis of corpse-crunching cinema - from Romero's early templates to the gory glory days of Fulci and his many successors.

- THE MEAT MUNCHING MOVIES OF GINO ROSSI: The special effects magician behind many Italian splatter classics talks about his most famous gore-drenched greats - and shows props from many plasma-packed masterworks - including ZOMBIE FLESH-EATERS, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, CANNIBAL FEROX, BURIAL GROUND and PIRANHA II.

This should be THE definitive release of The Cursed Medallion. Very pleased.

I will buy Superbitch, The Cursed Medallion and Christmas Evil as soon as they are released.

WELL DONE ARROW! It's been a while, but you have come up trumps again finally!

I've never heard of The Night Child, but if Richard Johnson's in it, I want it!

You do want it. Really.

This release will be the one to have too, as it has both audio tracks. The Italian DVD is great, but it only has the Italian dub (which is not the preferred format since the cast spoke English).

The Code Red release is OOP and only had the English audio - preferable, but it's nice to have the option!

Bravo! Very pleased with that lineup, might get em all . . .

This is a great slate of releases.

It's also nice to see Arrow taking a chance with some more obscure titles! I've never seen Super Bitch. It's been a looong time since I've been able to say that about an Arrow release, too.

I wonder if the non-steelbook ZFE releases will contain "the hand" artwork on the reverse...

Sod the haters; this is a tremendous bunch of releases! I personally prefer these sort of films over The Wild Geese, Who Dares Wins and Red Scorpion to be honest.

Chuffed I guessed it was at least Santa in the blurry picture release. And really glad these are less-than-obvious choices, especially since I haven't seen 2 of these films. Still surprised ZFE isn't getting a limited edition release though after Arrow said certain titles still would. If this doesn't then I don't know what else would deserve it really.

That is the sexiest steelbook in existence. Puts anything on play.com to SHAME.
