|Out on:||VOD 1st Oct. 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 October, the Arrow Video Channel is showing the creepy and intense horror mystery The Deeper You Dig, as well as an unmissable selection of brand new additions to the channel.
The service will also be expanding its availability across multiple devices in the US & Canada and launching simply as ARROW. (ARROW will be heading to the UK in early 2021)
Gripping, innovative and haunting, The Deeper You Dig sees a fake spiritualist attempting to discover the truth about her daughter’s disappearance - which might lie buried deep in the woods - and might be better left unearthed!
Directed by and starring hotly-tipped filmmaking family the Adams Family, described by Dread Central as ‘a force to be reckoned with’, The Deeper You Dig is a dark, unsettling meditation on grief, survival and the brittle barrier that separates the living from the dead
You can see it on the 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 (from 5th Oct).
Also debuting on the Arrow Video Channel this October are:
The Hatred (UK/US)
Key Talent: The Adams Family (Filmmakers, The Deeper You Dig)
A macabre and atmospheric horror western set in the late 19th century, about a young girl who brings a soldier back from the dead.
Key Talent: Miguel Llansó (Director, Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway)
Miguel Llansó’s feature directorial debut and spiritual predecessor to Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway, Crumbs is an extraordinary sci-fi love story, a wonderfully surreal trip across an apocalyptic landscape where fantasy and reality collide.
Cold Light of Day (UK/US/CA)
Key Talent: Fhiona-Louise (Director), Bob Flag (Actor, 1984)
A stark retelling of the story of “Des” Nilsen, often dubbed the “British Jeffery Dahmer”, 1989’s Cold Light of Day stars Bob Flag as Nilsen-cipher Jorden March, delivering one of the most chilling and credible portrayals of a serial killer ever committed to screen.
The Herschell Gordon Lewis Feast (UK/US/CA)
Key Talent: Herschell Gordon Lewis
A selection of films from the late, great, ‘Godfather of Gore’, including Blood Feast, Scum of the Earth, Two Thousand Maniacs, Moonshine Mountain, Color Me Blood Red, Something Weird, The Gruesome Twosome, A Taste of Blood, She-Devil on Wheels , Just for the Hell of It, How to Make a Doll, The Wizard of Gore, This Stuff’ll Kill Ya, and The Gore Gore Girls.
Incident in a Ghostland (UK)
Key Talent: Pascal Laugier (Director), Crystal Reed (Actor, Swamp Thing)
From director Pascal Laugier, who in 2008 shocked audiences around the world with his gruelling genre game-changer Martyrs, comes Incident in a Ghostland – a terrifying excursion into abject horror filled with creepy antique dolls, murderous maniacs and thrilling jump scares.
Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice (UK)
Key Talent: David Price (Director), Ryan Bollman (Actor, Only the Strong)
As harrowing as the original and serving up a fresh crop of inventive kills and carnage, Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice is a noteworthy early 90s slasher classic
Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest (UK)
Key Talent: James D.R. Hickox (Director), Ron Melendez (Actor, American Horror Story)
The third feature in the Children of the Corn franchise, Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest is another chilling chapter where the big city folks of Chicago aren’t prepared for the evil that lurks in the corn…
The service is also branching out - launching as ARROW in the US & Canada this October (and heading to the UK next year).
Debuting on ARROW in the US this October are:
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (US/CA)
Key Talent: Tobe Hooper (Lifeforce), Marilyn Burns (Eaten Alive)
Tobe Hooper’s groundbreaking horror classic features ghoulishly memorable set-pieces, terrific frights, and astounding sound and set design, as well as, of course, Leatherface. It remains one of the greatest horror films ever made.
Key Talent: Kristian A. Söderström (Director, Smink)
The bizarre and beguiling story of a VHS collector and an 80s obsessive embarking on a relationship, this oddity from Sweden will delight and disturb as it takes a deep dive into the minds of a highly unusual couple.
Arrow Video Channel’s curated picks of October:
To celebrate Tobe Hooper’s magnificent horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, arriving on the US ARROWin all it’s gory glory, ARROW have put together a slicing and dicing selection of blood-splattered slashers, no doubt inspired by Texas Chainsaw itself, featuring powertools and the like being used for precisely the wrong purposes. Among them is Abel Ferrara’s notorious New York-set grindhouse bloodfest The Driller Killer, in which the director takes the lead role as a city dweller driven to strap on a power pack and take to the streets; 1980s cult curio Doom Asylum, featuring a disfigured killer going to work on his victims (including Sex and the City’s Kristin Davis) with a circular saw blade; The Mutilator, from 1984, wherein the tagline pretty much explained the modus operandi of the title character: ‘By pick, by axe, by sword, bye bye!’; in the superb slasher Blood Rage, a murderous twin goes on the rampage with a machete - handy for cutting down foliage, but he prefers to use it to cut victims in two; meanwhile, Jose Larraz’s Edge of the Axe falls back on that old woodchopping staple, as a masked killer charges around the mountains in this memorably nasty hack ‘em up; there is also the estimable Microwave Massacre, a truly deranged feast of 1970s sleaze featuring a crazed construction worker who uses the tools of his trade to sate his cannibalistic cravings. Tuck in!

They were once the mainstay of Times Square fleapits, with scratched up prints projected through clouds of smoke in front of audiences who wanted something different. Something daring and depraved, weird and wild, rude and crude, lascivious and lewd, strange and unsettling - welcome to the world of the Midnight Movie, low budget oddities that you can now watch any time you like, in newly-refurbished pristine condition, thanks to Arrow Video Channel. Among them are Vampyres, Jose Larraz’s deliriously erotic, fantastically bloody horror masterwork; Jim Van Bebber’s gritty, grimy all-out action cult classic Deadbeat at Dawn; the utterly bleak and unnerving, little seen but demands to be watched UK serial killer chiller The Cold Light of Day; Magnum Force director Ted Post’s utterly bonkers manchild masterpiece The Baby, which is unlike anything you’ve ever seen; legendary exploitation director and Arrow favourite Jack Hill’s hilarious Seventies romp The Swinging Cheerleaders, starring Colleen Camp; and Walerian Borowczyk’s ravishing, revealing and X-rated love story The Story of Sin.
