|Out on:||VOD 1st July 2020|
ARROW VIDEO CHANNEL is the passion-driven film platform giving film fans the opportunity to watch a curated selection of movies that the Arrow Video brand is famous for. This July, the Arrow Video Channel is showing Korean rom-zom-com Zombie For Sale, and all twelve films from the amazing Gamera Collection, featuring the beloved titanic terrapin.
An infectiously funny slice of modern Korean cinema, Zombie For Sale sees an undead escapee from a pharmaceutical lab attacking the head of the misfit Park family - who promptly becomes revitalised and full of life! The family hatch a plan to exploit this unexpected fountain of youth, allowing locals to pay to be bitten too, until things go wrong…
With a cabbage-munching zombie who prefers ketchup over blood, and a dysfunctional clan that gives the Kim family of Parasite a run for their money, Zombie for Sale will warm the deadest of hearts and breathe some new life into the zombie genre.
Also in July, the original hero in a half-shell is back, with all twelve tales of the adventures of the creature feature favourite Gamera (from 1965’s Gamera the Giant Monster to 2006’s Gamera The Brave).
The films trace the decades-long evolution of Gamera, from the “friend of all children” in his more light-hearted earlier films, to the Guardian of the Universe in the groundbreaking 1990s reboot series, often hailed as three of the best kaiju (monster) films ever made.
You can see them all on Arrow Video Channel - the home for weird and wild cult classics, newly-restored gems, and genre favourites, available on Apple TV and Amazon Prime Video (UK only).
Also debuting on the Arrow Video Channel in July are:
Key Talent: George Romero (Dawn of the Dead), Stephen King (Carrie, The Dead Zone)
Horror maestros Romero and King are together again, in this wildly enjoyable follow-up to their 1982 anthology hit, this time featuring young hoodlums, horny teens and an uptight businesswoman getting their just desserts, in all manner of ghoulish and ghostly going-ons.
Key Talent: Nico Mastorakis (Director, Island of Death), Rajinikanth (Kabali, Enthiran)
Buckle up from some B-movie mayhem from genre film luminary Nico Mastorakis, featuring a stellar performance by legendary Tamil superstar Rajinikanth in his first English-language role, in an action-packed romp full of thrills, kick-ass one liners and venomous cobras!
Key Talent: Mike Hodges (Director, Get Carter, Flash Gordon), Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction), Tom Hulce (Amadeus)
Mike Hodges’ underappreciated chiller, starring Rosanna Arquette as a clairvoyant whose visions start to predict a series of deadly events, is a superbly eerie and entertaining gothic tale of suspense and the occult, presented here in a stunning director-approved restoration.
MERRY CHRISTMAS MR LAWRENCE
Key Talent: Nagisa Oshima (Director, Empire of Passion, Gohatto), David Bowie (The Man Who Fell To Earth), Tom Conti (Shirley Valentine), Takeshi Kitano (Battle Royale)
David Bowie is in mesmerizingly good form in Nagisa Oshima’s 1983 Palme d’Or-nominated World War II prisoner-of-war classic, featuring a memorably haunting, BAFTA-winning score by Ryuichi Sakamoto, and a breakthrough role for the legendary Takeshi ‘Beat’ Kitano.
Arrow Video Channel’s curated picks of July:
If the long lockdown and the summer heat have left you feeling somewhat lethargic and inert, the Arrow Video Channel have just the thing - a selection of extreme cinema from Asia that will sharpen your mind, shock your senses and sizzle your nerve endings. Among these morsels of Eastern excess are Takashi Miike’s extraordinary and unsettling Audition, about a widower whose attempts to find a new wife have unexpectedly excruciating results; the hide-behind-the-sofa Ringu films; Chan-wook Park’s classic revenge thriller, the bloody and brutal jaw-dropper Oldboy; 2001’s attack of the internet sci-fi horror Pulse; the no-holds-barred action thriller Tokyo Fist; Battle Royale - that makes The Hunger Games look like a quiet picnic in the woods; and Horrors of Malformed Men, that does what it says on the tin!

If you sometimes find yourself wishing for simpler, more innocent times - times when demons lived in the attic, body parts were cooked in the microwave, gangsters were fed into meat mincers and campers got their heads lopped off - then you’ve come to the right place, with the Arrow Video Channel’s collection of blood-splattered horror classics from the decade that good fashion sense forgot, the 1980s! Among the deliciously demented offerings are the first two soul-tearing Hellraiser films, from master of the macabre Clive Barker; a summer camp prank going horribly wrong in the gory slasher classic The Burning; chainsaw terror in the outrageously bloody Pieces; kids running amok in the ultra-disturbing low budget spine-tingler Bloody Birthday; while ancient demons run amok in another Clive Barker creation, Rawhead Rex; and revenge is the name of the game in the controversial grindhouse epic The Exterminator.
