For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Arrow’s April Line Up revealed!

This April ARROW  are offering classic and cutting edge cult cinema including Otherworldly The Sacred Spirit, Gallons of Grindhouse Gore, Italian Cop Action, and offerings from AGFA and Vinegar Syndrome!
Arrow Video is excited to announce the April 2022 lineup of their new subscription-based ARROW platform, available to subscribers in the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland.
The April 2022 lineup leads with the ARROW release of dystopian surrealist Chema Garcia Ibarra’s feature The Sacred Spirit, available to subscribers in the US, UK, Canada and Ireland. The film will debut on ARROW April 15.
April 1 starts the month with a number of unique and titillating titles: Dead Dicks (US/CA), Caliber 9 (US/CA), Kidnap Syndicate (UK/US/CA/IRE), Naked Violence (UK/US/CA/IRE), Rulers of the City (UK/US/CA/IRE), Shoot First, Die Later (UK/US/CA/IRE), The Boss (UK/US/CA/IRE), The Italian Connection (UK/US/CA/IRE), The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema (US/CA), The Face at the Window (UK/US/CA/IRE), The Heroin Busters (UK/US/CA/IRE), and The Big Racket (UK/US/CA/IRE).
April 1 begins this month’s Seasons guns blazing with two loaded and strapped collections: Poliziotteschi “High-speed Italian crime!” (UK/US/CA/IRE) and 110% Adrenaline: The Di Leo Collection (UK/US/CA/IRE).
Poliziotteschi: Featuring hard-hitting, white hot lead-filled, pedal-to-the-metal movies straight out of a 70s Italy that was bitterly and dangerously divided along political and social lines, all of the films in the Poliziotteschi Collection offer a fascinating insight into a highly specific time and place where corruption and class informed the filmmakers choices in these often morally dubious action-packed thrillers.
Brutal criminals and super-cool cops collide in knuckle-breaking car chases featuring gorgeous retro automobiles flung through traffic at insanely dangerous speeds, and gritty violence doled out by anything from a Colt .38 to a fork lift truck! Featuring the work of extremely brave stunt men literally risking it all for some truly death-defying moments, in these Italian crime thrillers, or crimi, you hold on tight and you take justice any way you can get it.
Titles include:  The Heroin Busters, Savage Three, Colt 38, The Kidnap Syndicate.
Adrenaline: The Di Leo Collection Titles include: Shoot First Die Later, Kidnap Syndicate, Naked Violence.
April 4 goes deep in the woods, at the mercy of the elements and the beasts with Savage Dawn (UK/US/CA/IRE), Funky Forest: The First Contact (UK/US/CA/IRE), The Warped Forest (UK/US/CA/IRE), and Cub (US/CA) and takes audiences on a trip with six genre bending features: The Passing (UK/US/CA/IRE), Battle for the Lost Planet (UK/US/CA/IRE), Mutant War (UK/US/CA/IRE), Malabimba (US/CA), Beyond the Door 3 (US/CA), and Rest in Pieces (US/CA).
April 4 continues with two new Seasons of dark underground titles with Vinegar Syndrome Collection Vol III (UK/US/CA/IRE) and Third Window Films Collection (UK/US/CA/IRE).
We know that when it comes to Vinegar Syndrome movies, just like us, you cannot get enough – so, hot on the heels of Vol. I and II, comes a third collection of the weirdest, wildest and just plain raddest titles rescued from celluloid obscurity by a bunch of brilliant boutique cult film preservers: VINEGAR SYNDROME COLLECTION: VOL. III.
ARROW favorite José Larraz (Edge of the Axe, Deadly Manor) directs the wonderfully trashy and gory Rest in Pieces; The Passing is a sci-fi body-swapping examination of love, loneliness and the fear of dying; and The Battle for the Lost Planet and Mutant War are to be taken together and feature a thief out of time facing down alien mutants.
You’ve seen our presentations of Beyond the Door and Beyond the Door 2 (a.k.a. Shock), now prepare yourself for Beyond the Door 3 – a possession slasher sequel that goes the Under Siege 2 route by taking place… on a train! For those who love nunsploitation – all of us then – there’s Malabimba, and if it’s Rambo vs. bikers you’re after then get a load of Savage Dawn.
Vinegar Syndrome Collection Vol III Titles include: The Passing, Savage Dawn, The Battle for the Lost Planet.
Third Window Films Collection Titles include: Funky Forest, The Warped Forest, The Legend of the Stardust Brothers, Casting Blossoms to the Sky, Seven Weeks.
April 5 debuts Lau Kar-leung’s martial arts epic The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter (US/CA). Loosely based upon the legendary Yang dynasty chronicled in Chinese folklore, the film starts as the family patriarch and all but two of his sons are brutally wiped out in a bloody battle. One surviving son (Fu Sheng) returns to his mother and two sisters, deeply traumatized; the other (Gordon Liu) escapes and joins a nearby monastery while in hiding. Once he learns his sister (Kara Hui) has been captured by their enemies, however, the warrior-turned-monk realizes he must renounce his peaceful ideals in order to mount a rescue mission and avenge his family.
On April 11, enjoy a trio of North American exclusives with The Pit (US/CA), Inferno (US/CA), and The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (US/CA).
April 14 will see the bow of Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine (UK/US/CA/IRE). Lucita has been locked away in a convent by her family in order to keep her away from her lover, Esteban. The pair make plans to elope, but Esteban is accused of heresy before Lucita can escape. Hiding in the convent, Esteban discovers the horrifying depravity of the convent’s abbess, Sister Incarnation. Can Esteban rescue his love from this madhouse before the inquisitor discovers what is going on and has everyone executed?
Inspired by Chema García Ibarra’s debut The Sacred Spirit comes the April 15 Season: Trust No One.
A collection of films, shorts and stand-alone television episodes that feature enough aliens, cults, conspiracies, paranoia and tin foil hats to have you constantly checking over your shoulder while muttering “The truth is out there, the truth is out there, the truth is out there”. And remember, Trust No One.
Titles include: The Sacred Spirit, Insecticide, Something Weird.
On April 18, experience John McNaughton’s acclaimed classic Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (UK/US/CA/IRE). Widely heralded as one of the greatest serial killer movies of all time, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer presents a bleak and unflinching dive into the mind of a mass murderer. Recently released from prison, the nomadic Henry (Michael Rooker, Guardians of the Galaxy, “The Walking Dead”) finds temporary abode in the rundown Chicago lodgings of a former jail acquaintance and small-time drug dealer, Otis (Tom Towles). Hiding behind his unremarkable employment as a pest exterminator, Henry leads a double life, prowling the streets by night on a brutal and apparently motiveless killing spree. Based on the horrific true-life crimes of Henry Lee Lucas, the harrowing controversial debut feature from John McNaughton (Mad Dog and Glory, Wild Things) comes to ARROW in a new 4K restoration supervised by the director himself.
Go deep into the minds of murderers with April 18’s Season: Portraits of Serial Killers (UK/US/CA/IRE).
Titles include: A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life, The Stylist, Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer.
Also on April 18, enjoy Rogue Cops and Racketeers: Two Crime Thrillers from Enzo G. Castellari (UK/US/CA/IRE). Featuring death-defying stunts, explosive shoot-outs and a pair of addictive, toe-tapping soundtracks courtesy of the De Angelis brothers (Torso) and legendary prog rock group Goblin (Suspiria), these two films represent the crème de la crème of the Italian crime thriller.
Titles include: The Big Racket, The Heroin Busters.
On April 22, dive into A Young Man with High Potential (US/CA). This disturbing psychological thriller follows a reclusive young man’s desperate desire for sex and human contact.
April 25 ends the month with a bang, releasing: The Dirty Dolls (UK/US/CA/IRE), She Mob (UK/US/CA/IRE), Sometimes Aunt Martha Does Dreadful Things (UK/US/CA/IRE), The Curious Dr. Hump (UK/US/CA/IRE), The Girl from Pussycat (UK/US/CA/IRE), Things to Come (UK/US/CA/IRE), The Swindle (UK/US/IRE), The Color of Lies (UK/US/IRE), and Nightcap (UK/US/IRE).
April 25 caps this month’s Seasonal lineup with AGFA Collection Vol III (UK/US/CA/IRE) and Twisting The Knife: Four Films by Claude Chabrol (UK/US/IRE).
AGFA Collection Vol III Titles include: The Dirty Dolls, The Curious Dr Humpp, She Mob.
Twisting The Knife Titles include: The Swindle, Nightcap, The Color of Lies.
