I bought the Larraz set from Amazon on Monday. It was £24.

That's £6 less than Arrow are asking in the sale. It's still available too.

I had a quick look at the sale, and I mean just page 1, I'm not motivated to buy anything, the postage is pretty high from them now which always sours the deal. It doesn't even feel like a 'support the company and buy direct' thing any more because it's just Zavvi's website with an Arrow skin.

I went through it earlier all 26 pages. They'd do better if things weren't repeated three and four times, would narrow it down to fifteen pages.

American Horror Project vols 1 and 2 are around the £15 mark on Amazon which is also a fiver cheaper than Arrow direct and more when you add postage.

Release date: February 07th

Arrow RRP: £18:00

"A legendary title from the Video Nasties era, Joseph Ellison’s relentlessly bleak and disturbing Don’t Go In The House has lost none of its power to shock in the decades since it was first censored by the BBFC and seized by UK authorities.

Donny Kohler (The Sopranos’ Dan Grimaldi in a gripping central performance), a disturbed loner unhealthily obsessed with fire, comes home from his factory job one day to find his abusive mother has died. Now all alone in the large Gothic mansion he calls home and consumed in an inferno of insanity, he is finally able to fulfil his violent revenge fantasies against her. Soon, any woman unlucky enough to enter is forced to come face to face with the worst fate imaginable in the secret steelclad chamber of death he has built in the house’s depths…

NEW UK TITLE: Phenomena (Limited Edition 4K UHD Blu-ray)

Release date: February 28th

Arrow RRP: £35:00

"From master of horror Dario Argento (Suspiria, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) comes Phenomena – one of his most eccentric and unique thrillers, featuring telepathic insects, maggots galore, and even a razorwielding chimp!

Jennifer Corvino (Jennifer Connelly, Labyrinth), daughter of a worldrenowned movie star, arrives in the socalled “Swiss Transylvania” to attend an exclusive girls’ school. However, a vicious killer is targeting the pupils, and sleepwalker Jennifer finds herself in the assassin’s headlights when her nocturnal wanderings cause her to witness the death of a fellow pupil. Aided by paraplegic entomologist John McGregor (Donald Pleasence, Halloween) and her own uncanny ability to communicate telepathically with insects, Jennifer sets out to track down the killer before she herself becomes the latest victim…

Released in 1985, towards the end of Argento’s decadelong golden age as a director, Phenomena costars Dalila Di Lazarro (The Pyjama Girl Case), Patrick Bauchau (Clear and Present Danger) and Daria Nicolodi (Tenebrae), and features lush cinematography by Romano Albani (Inferno) and a pounding prog rock score by Goblin (Deep Red, Suspiria).

NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: Lies and Deceit: Five Films by Claude Chabrol (Limited Edition Blu-ray)

Release date: February 21th

Arrow RRP: £55:00

"Too often overlooked and undervalued, Claude Chabrol was the first of the Cahiers du Cinema critics to release a feature film and would be among the most prolific. The sneaky anarchist of the French New Wave, he embraced genre as a means of lifting the lid on human nature. Nothing is sacred and nothing is certain in the films of Claude Chabrol: anything can be corrupted, and usually will be.

The hidden meaness of provincial life is at the heart of Cop Au Vin (Poulet au vinaigre), as deaths and disappearances intersect around the attempt by a corrupt syndicate of property developers to force a disabled woman and her son from their home. Actor Jean Poiret would prove so compelling as the laconic Detective Inspector Lavardin good cop/bad cop all in one that the sequel would be titled after him. Inspector Lavardin sees the titular detective investigating the murder of a wealthy and respected catholic author, renowned for his outspoken views against indecency, whose body is found naked and dead on the beach. In Madame Bovary, Chabrol directs one of his greatest collaborators, actress Isabelle Huppert, in perhaps the definitive depiction of Flaubert’s classic heroine. Meanwhile Betty, adapted from the novel of the same name by Maigret author Georges Simenon, is a scathing attack on the uppermiddle classes, featuring an extraordinary performance by Marie Trintignant as a woman spiraling into alcoholism, but fighting to redefine herself. Finally, in Torment (L’enfer) Chabrol picks up a project abandoned by Henri Georges Clouzot, in which a husband’s jealousy and suspicion of his wife drive him to appalling extremes. Francois Cluzet and Emmanuelle Beart give career best performances as the husband and wife tearing each other apart.

With brand new digital restorations, this inaugural Arrow Video collection of Claude Chabrol on Bluray brings together a wealth of passionate contributors and archival extras to shed fresh light on the films and the filmmaker. Dark, witty, ruthless, mischievous: if you’ve never seen Chabrol before, you’re in for a treat. If you have, they’ve never looked better."

NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: Deadly Games (Blu-ray)

Release date: February 21th

Arrow RRP: £18:00

"Steve Railsback (famed for his unhinged performance as Charles Manson in 1976’s TV miniseries Helter Skelter) is at his sinster best as a troubled Vietnam Vet in 1982’s Deadly Games a tale of madness, murder and adultery from writer/director Scott Mansfied.

A masked maniac with a penchant for a horrorthemed board game is playing his own twisted game with the women of a small American town. Each time the dice is rolled, another victim meets a grisly end. Returning home to mourn the death of her murdered sister, Keegan (Jo Ann Harris) befriends local cop Roger and oddball cinema projectionist Billy (Railsback) but soon finds herself in the killer’s sights.

Originally entitled Who Fell Asleep, Deadly Games is an intriguing early ’80s slasher oddity which benefits from focusing as much on the development of its femaleled cast as it does on its scenes of stalking and slashing. Available for the first time ever on disc, Arrow Video is proud to present this longoverlooked creepy gem in a brand new restoration from the recentlyunearthed camera negative!"
