    NEW US/CA TITLE: Solid Metal Nightmares: The Films of Shinya Tsukamoto (Limited Edition Blu-ray box set)

Frequently exploring themes of urban alienation, physical transformation and psychosexual obsession, his films cross genre boundaries, defying straightforward classification. This exclusive collection gathers together eight feature-length films and two shorts from Tsukamoto’s diverse filmography, including his most recent offering – his samurai drama Killing, making its home video premiere.

    NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: The Wind (Blu-ray)

    A stalk ‘n’ slash hidden gem, presented here for the first time on Blu-ray. Get ready to be blown away!

    What would you do if going outside meant being killed by a raging hurricane, but staying indoors meant being hacked to pieces by a sickle wielding maniac? Arrow video proudly presents The Wind, from prolific genre filmmaker Nico Mastorakis, the director behind such cult classics as Hired to Kill and Island of Death.

    When mystery novelist Sian Anderson (Meg Foster, They Live) arrives in the remote Greek town of Monemvasia, Elias Appleby (Robert Morley, The African Queen), the pompous British landlord of the house she’s renting warns her of two dangers: the wind, which gets dangerously strong at night, and Phil (Wings Hauser, Vice Squad), his sleazy and suspicious American handyman. As night falls and the wind starts howling, Sian witnesses the shocking sight of Phil burying Elias’s dead body in a shallow grave in his front garden! Trapped indoors from the raging, tree-branch-breaking wind, Sian must play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the murderous Phil, who’ll stop at nothing to silence this inconvenient witness!

    A tense and thrilling blend of Euro-horror and late 80s slasher, The Wind is a stalk ‘n’ slash hidden gem, presented here for the first time on Blu-ray. Get ready to be blown away!

    NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: Why Don’t you Just Die! (Blu-ray)

    Shades of early Tarantino, Edgar Wright and Sam Raimi abound in this violent, stylish and riotously entertaining slice of family life, Moscow style.

    Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend’s parents’ apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honor. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey’s attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don’t quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable – not to mention ruthless – opponent than he anticipated… and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die.

    Making his feature debut, writer/director Kirill Sokolov presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour. Featuring a soundtrack that veers between Ennio Morricone-esque western riffs and toe-tappingly catchy pop numbers, Why Don’t You Just Die! delivers laughs, shocking twists and copious quantities of blood and gore, and establishes Sokolov as one of cinema’s brightest rising stars.

    SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS

    • High Definition Blu-ray™ (1080p) presentation
    • Original lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and PCM 2.0 stereo soundtracks
    • Optional English subtitles

    • Exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from rehearsals and the film set

    NEW US/CA TITLE: Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (Blu-ray)

    She’s back! Elvira, Horrorland’s hostess with the mostest, finally busts out on newly restored Blu-ray with this long-awaited, positively bursting-at-the-seams special edition of her big screen debut, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark!

    Having just quit her job as a Los Angeles TV horror hostess, Elvira receives the unexpected news that she’s set to inherit part of her great aunt Morgana’s estate. Arriving in the small town of Fallwell, Massachusetts to claim her inheritance, Elvira receives a less than enthusiastic reception from the conservative locals – amongst them, her sinister uncle Vincent, who, unbeknownst to Elvira, is in fact an evil warlock secretly scheming to steal the old family spellbook for his own nefarious ends…

    Campy, quirky and stuffed to the brim with more double entendres than your average Carry On movie, 1988’s Elvira: Mistress of the Dark helped solidify the horror hostess (played by Cassandra Peterson) as a major pop culture icon, here owning every inch of the screen with her quick wit, sass, and of course, cleaving-enhancing gown!

    NEW US/CA TITLE: Sixteen Candles (Blu-ray)

    A bombshell of 80s pop culture from the king of teen cinema John Hughes. In his debut film as writer-director, John Hughes immediately cemented himself as the king of teen cinema with Sixteen Candles, and in the process also introduced one of the most iconic faces of ‘80s Americana: Molly Ringwald.

    For high schooler Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald), her 16th birthday might be the worst day of her life. Her entire family has forgotten about it due to her older sister’s impending wedding; her biggest crush, high school hunk Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) has discovered an embarrassing “sex quiz” filled out by Sam in which she details how she is saving herself for him; and to make matters worse, she is hounded by a relentless nerd (Anthony Michael Hall) who won’t take no for an answer. But Sam’s sweet sixteen isn’t over yet, and before the end of the night, all her birthday wishes could still come true…

    Taking the rude and crude humor of the teen sex comedies that came before it and placing it within the intimately portrayed perspective of a girl’s mid-teenage-life crisis, Sixteen Candles is a bombshell of 80s pop culture that continues to be debated and beloved over three decades after its release.

    NEW UK TITLE: Hagazussa: A Heathen’s Curse (Limited Edition Blu-ray)

    Debut filmmaker Lukas Feigelfeld has crafted one of the most celebrated horror debuts in recent years, playing prestigious festivals worldwide it is one of the most original takes on the subject of witchcraft which echoes Robert Eggers The Witch but draws on broader influences including the creeping dread and hallucinogenic imagery of David Lynch and Panos Cosmatos.

    In an isolated Alpine hut at the turn of the 15th Century, Albrun is a young girl growing up alone. As an adult, she is a single mother and a marked woman, outcast by a society twisted in deep-rooted superstitions and misogyny. Still haunted by the death of her own mother and increasingly abused by the community around her, Albrun starts to defy the role she has been dealt in life and embarks on a path of self-empowerment – the price of which may be an even greater darkness than she has ever known before.

    Described as “a spellbinding audiovisual symphony” (The Hollywood Reporter) and ranked 3rd in Rotten Tomatoes "Best Horror Movies of 2019", Hagazussa: A Heathen’s Curse is a journey into the madness prevalent both in our minds and in the world around us, and whether the difference between the two is always as clear as we hope for it to be.

    I already got the UK disc. Should have held out for a few more days and I would have scored it for £10 instead of £15. Arrow is one of those companies where investing in an all region player really pays for itself within a short period. Even when their sales aren’t taking place it is sooo much cheaper to buy from amazon.uk than it is to wait for a domestic release.

    Pre-ordered the Gamera set. I'm working my way through 60+ kaiju films this year and I've gotten through the majority of the series. The Showa Era films were better than I thought they would be as MST3K fodder and the Heisei films are outstanding.

    Watched 'Deadly Manor' today, a more apt title would be 'Boring manor', it's bad, a real struggle to get to the end! I'm questioning whether to watch 'edge of the axe' now! Anyone here who has seen both these movies, is edge better?

    Bowsing around the Web I've seen a lot of people say Edge of the Axe is better. How much better I don't know, but I am curious to hear what you think of it :p

    I've always preferred Deadly Manor (or Savage Lust as I've always known it). I enjoy both though.

    NEW UK TITLE: Empathy, Inc. (Blu-ray)

    Walk a mile in someone else. After a multimillion-dollar deal goes bust, disgraced venture capitalist Joel (Zack Robdis, Succession) and his actress wife Jessica (Kathy Searle, The Good Guy) are forced to move in with her overbearing parents and try and start their lives again.

    Desperate to get back on top, Joel runs into old friend Nicolaus (Eric Berryman, Marriage Story) and his business partner Lester (Jay Klaitz, Jessica Jones) – tech entrepreneurs seeking new investors for their company Empathy, Inc. Offering users the chance to experience X-VR – Xtreme Virtual Reality, they place them in the shoes of the much less fortunate to make them appreciate just how good they have it. As the investments start to roll in, Joel soon discovers that this start-up may have far more sinister plans for their ground-breaking tech – which comes with a terrible cost...

    With shades of Pi, The Twilight Zone and Primer and exploring themes of identity crisis, poverty tourism and the greed of humanity, Empathy, Inc. is a twisted virtual reality chiller for the modern tech age that will really get under your skin…

    NEW UK TITLE: I See You (Blu-ray)
    Evil hides in plain sight. Up-and-coming British director Adam Randall (iBoy) returns with his new twist-heavy thriller I See You, described by the Hollywood Reporter as “a finely crafted exercise in slow-burn suspense”.

    Behind the seemingly perfect Harper household, Greg (Jon Tenney, True Detective), the lead investigator of a child abduction case, is struggling to come to terms with the recent infidelity of his wife Jackie (Academy Award® winner Helen Hunt, As Good As It Gets). The already strained family harmony is further threatened when Connor (Judah Lewis, The Babysitter), their son, appears to be the victim of a mysterious malevolent presence in their house. As the secrets start to unravel, the plot threads prove to be more interlinked than it would appear at first glance.

    Packed with audacious plot twists, beautifully orchestrated narrative flips and an outstanding lead performance by Helen Hunt, I See You is an eerie gem, where nothing is as it seems and the terrible truth behind a family's dark secrets might just be hiding in plain sight.

    NEW US TITLE: The Woman (Blu-ray)
    NEW UK/CA TITLE: The Woman/Offspring (Limited Edition Blu-ray)

    Almost a decade after Lucky McKee burst upon the indie horror scene and became a ‘Master of Horror’ in the making thanks to his directorial debut May, he teamed up with legendary cult author Jack Ketchum for his most shocking and brutal film to date: The Woman, an instant cause célèbre on its Sundance premiere.

    The Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh, The Walking Dead) is the last surviving member of a deadly clan of feral cannibals that has roamed the American wilderness for decades. When successful country lawyer Chris Cleek (Sean Bridgers, Room) stumbles upon her whilst hunting in the woods, he decides to capture and “civilize” her with the help of his seemingly perfect all-American family, including his wife Belle (Angela Bettis, May) and daughter Peggy (Lauren Ashley Carter, Darling). The Cleeks will soon learn, however, that hell hath no fury like The Woman scorned…

    Experience McKee and Ketchum’s uncompromisingly twisted vision of the dark side of the American family in a definitive new edition, including a 4K remaster, brand new bonus features, and a bonus disc* featuring a brand new restoration of its gut-churning 2009 predecessor Offspring, also starring McIntosh.

    NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: White Fire (Blu-ray)

    Robert Ginty (The Exterminator) and Belinda Mayne (Krull) play Bo and Inga, brother and sister jewel thieves who target the legendary ‘White Fire’ diamond — a priceless rock so hot it actually burns those who try to lay their hands on it!

    When tragedy strikes, Bo undertakes an outrageous plan involving plastic surgery and explosives to infiltrate the mine where the diamond awaits. Bo’s plan hits an unexpected snag with the arrival of smooth-talking badass Noah Barclay, played by Fred Williamson (From Dusk ‘Til Dawn). Noah’s hunting for a missing prostitute — and he thinks Bo and Inga hold the key to her disappearance!

    Erotic filmmaker Jean-Marie Pallardy (Erotic Diary of a Lumberjack) brings his kinky touch to high octane action in this infamous exploitation epic, complete with chainsaw mayhem, awkward brotherly love, and a very ‘80s theme song by the band Limelight!

    Terror strikes in paradise as Academy Award-winning actors James Earl Jones, José Ferrer and Lila Kedrova star in this thrilling tale of sea monsters and sacrificial virgins, from the people that brought you the notoriously gruesome Island of Death!

    When treasure hunter Frye (James Earl Jones) accidentally awakens an ancient sea monster that has been lying dormant on a Greek island, the inhabitants are forced to resume the practice of sacrificing virgins in order to placate the demonic creature.

    NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: Dream Demon (Blu-ray)

    A young bride-to-be’s anxieties over her upcoming wedding take on a horrifying, demonic form in this underseen 1988 “rubber reality” shocker from director/co-writer Harley Cokeliss (Black Moon Rising), starring Timothy Spall and Jemma Redgrave.

    As her marriage to decorated war hero Oliver draws near, well-heeled Diana moves into her sprawling new London home where she starts to experience strange and terrifying nightmares. But are these blood-curdling night terrors merely the symptom of an unsettled mind, or the sign of something far sinister at work? Hounded by a pair of sleazy journalists (Timothy Spall and Jimmy Nail), Diana soon crosses paths with American tourist Jenny, who appears to have a strange connection to the foreboding house and its sinister past.

    Long dormant on home media since its original VHS release, Dream Demon - a terrific blend of psychological horror and late 80s practical gore effects - has at long-last been stirred from its analogue slumber and arrives on Blu-ray, newly-restored from the original camera negative and in a brand new Director’s Cut!
