Upcoming Arrow Video Releases (Pre-orders Up)

Posted April 26, 2013 04:08 PM by Webmaster

Arrow VideoIndependent British distributors have revealed that they are preparing a number of very exciting Blu-ray releases of cult and classic films which are set to arrive on the market later this year. Amongst them are Andrey Konchalovskiy's The Runaway Train, Jeff Lieberman's Squirm, and Boaz Davidson's The Last American Virgin.

Here's Arrow Video's Complete Summer slate:

The Car

Standard Release. Street Date: July 15th.

Made when Jaws was still the most successful film of all time, The Car has almost exactly the same premise, but replaces the ocean with the Utah desert, and the shark with a Lincoln Continental Mark III of possibly supernatural origin.

When two teenage cyclists and a hitch-hiking musician are killed in apparently deliberate hit-and-runs, the police department of Santa Ynez investigates, whereupon the seemingly driverless vehicle turns on its hapless officers as well. And when the car strikes rather too close to the home of Captain Wade Parent (James Brolin), he vows to stop at nothing to defeat it.

Director Elliot Silverstein (Cat Ballou, A Man Called Horse) keeps everything as slick and streamlined as the car itself, turning the desert landscape into a powerfully mythic backdrop for a potent clash between the forces of good and those of inexplicable but clearly implacable evil.

Special Features:
  • High Definition presentation (1080p), on Blu-ray for the first time in the world!
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Audio commentary with director Elliot Silverstein moderated by Calum Waddell
  • Making a Mechanical Monster: Special Effects Artist William Alridge Remembers The Car
  • Hitchhike the Hell: Actor John Rubinstein recalls becoming a victim of The Car
  • Original Trailer
  • Easter Egg
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Joe Wilson
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by Cullen Gallagher as well as a brand new interview with co-writer Michael Butler conducted by Calum Waddell, illustrated with original archive stills and artwork
Runaway Train

Dual Format Release. Street Date: July 22.

Two convicts break out of Stonehaven Prison in the dead of winter, boarding a freight train with the intention of getting as far away as possible before their notoriously sadistic warden finds out. But the brakes fail and the driver has a heart attack, sending hundreds of tons of metal hurtling through the snowy Alaskan wastes at terrifying and unstoppable speed.

Based on a script by Akira Kurosawa (Seven Samurai), with hardboiled prison slang added by real-life ex-con Edward Bunker (Mr Blue in Reservoir Dogs), this riveting thriller also boasts Oscar-nominated performances from Jon Voight and Eric Roberts – with Voight playing spectacularly against type as a criminal so vicious that he served much of his sentence welded into his cell.

Combining electrifying action with constant psychological tension (the only surviving member of the train crew is a young, inexperienced woman), Runaway Train is one of cinema's great thrill-rides.

  • High Definition transfer of the film prepared by MGM for the Cannes Film Festival premiere
  • High Definition Blu-ray and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the film
  • Optional English SDH Subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • From Thespian to Fugitive – Star Jon Voight shares his memories of his Academy Award-nominated role
  • Running on Empty – An Interview with director Andrei Konchalovsky
  • The Calm Before the Chaos – Co-star Kyle T. Heffner remembers Runaway Train
  • Booklet featuring new writing on the film and a new interview with Runaway Train's Production Designer Stephen Marsh conducted by Calum Waddell, illustrated with rare behind-the-scenes production images
Dressed to Kill

Standard Release. Street Date: July 29th.

After sexually frustrated housewife Kate Miller (Angie Dickinson) has a session with her psychiatrist Dr Elliott (Michael Caine), she silently seduces a man in an art gallery, an assignation that ends in murder and the only witness, high-class prostitute Liz Blake (Nancy Allen) being stalked by the killer in turn.

One of Brian De Palma's darkest and most controversial suspense thrillers, Dressed to Kill was as acclaimed for its stylish set-pieces and lush Pino Donaggio score as it was condemned for its sexual explicitness and blatant borrowings from Alfred Hitchcock in general and Psycho in particular.

But the glee with which De Palma turns this material inside out is completely infectious, as he delves deep inside the troubled psyches of his characters (critic Pauline Kael said that the film was "permeated with the distilled essence of impure thoughts") in order to undermine expectations at every turn.

Special Features:
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation of the feature
  • Optional original uncompressed Mono 2.0 Audio and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 Surround Sound
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Symphony of Fear: Producer George Litto discusses his working relationship with Brian De Palma
  • Dressed in White: Star Angie Dickinson on her role in the film
  • Dressed in Purple: Star Nancy Allen discusses her role in the film
  • Lessons in Filmmaking: Actor Keith Gordon discusses Dressed to Kill
  • The Making of a Thriller – A documentary on the making of Dressed to Kill featuring writer-director Brian De Palma, George Litto, stars Angie Dickinson, Nancy Allen, Dennis Franz and more!
  • Unrated, R-Rated, and TV-Rated Comparison Featurette
  • Slashing Dressed to Kill – Brian De Palma and stars Nancy Allen and Keith Gordon discuss the changes that had to be made to avoid an X-rating
  • Original Theatrical Gallery
  • Reversible sleeve with original and newly commissioned artwork by Nathanel Marsh
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by critic and author Maitland McDonagh, illustrated with original archive stills and promotional material
Time Bandits

Standard Blu-ray and Limited Edition SteelBook Releases. Street Date: August 19th.

The film that established Terry Gilliam as more than just Monty Python's resident animator, this delightfully inventive children's fantasy is about young Kevin (Craig Warnock) who finds himself travelling through holes in the space-time continuum in the company of half a dozen fractious dwarfs.

Along the way, he encounters Agamemnon (Sean Connery), Robin Hood (John Cleese), Napoleon (Ian Holm) and winds up as a passenger on the Titanic, although not necessarily in that order. But is this just random entertainment laid on for history fan Kevin's benefit, or part of a wider struggle between the forces of good (Ralph Richardson) and evil (David Warner)?

At the time, this was a rare example of a small-budget British film successfully taking on American blockbusters. Now, it's a much-loved fantasy classic bursting with inspired images and ideas: Gilliam and co-writer Michael Palin (who also appears) are clearly enjoying themselves as much as their audience.

Special Features:
  • Brand new 2k-resolution restoration of the film from the original camera negative, approved by director and co-writer Terry Gilliam
  • Original uncompressed PCM Stereo 2.0 and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio options
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Chasing Time Bandits: A new interview with Terry Gilliam
  • Writing the Film that Dares Not Speak its Name: A new interview in which Michael Palin discusses co-writing and acting in Time Bandits
  • The Effects of Time Bandits: A new interview in which Kent Houston, founder of the Peerless Camera Company, discusses Time Bandits' optical effects
  • Playing Evil: A new featurette in which actor David Warner remembers producer George Harrison and playing Evil in Time Bandits
  • The Costumes of Time Bandits: A new interview with costume designer James Acheson
  • The Look of Time Bandits: A new interview with production designer Milly Burns
  • From Script to Screen – A new animated featurette in which Milly Burns takes us through her production notebooks, locations photographs and storyboards revealing how twentieth century Morocco was transformed into Ancient Greece
  • Original Trailer
  • Restoration Demonstration
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by critic James Oliver
House of Usher

Standard Blu-ray and Limited Edition SteelBook Releases. Street Date: August 26th.

When exploitation maestro Roger Corman decided to raise his game by hiring Vincent Price to star in an adaptation of a classic tale by Edgar Allan Poe, he set in train a series of Poe adaptations that would redefine American horror cinema.

When Philip Winthrop (Mark Damon) visits his fiancιe Madeleine Usher (Myrna Fahey) in her crumbling family mansion, her brother Roderick (Price) tries to talk him out of the wedding, explaining that the Usher family is cursed and that extending its bloodline will only prolong the agony. Madeleine wants to elope with Philip, but neither of them can predict what ruthless lengths Roderick will go to in order to keep them apart.

Richard Matheson's intelligent, literate script is enhanced by Floyd Crosby's stylish widescreen cinematography, but it's Vincent Price's anguished conviction in one of his signature roles that makes the film so chillingly memorable over half a century on.

Special Features:
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Audio commentary with director and producer Roger Corman
  • Legend to Legend: Director and former Corman apprentice Joe Dante reflects on the iconic Poe cycle
  • Through the Pale Door: A Specially-commissioned video essay by critic and filmmaker David Cairns examining Corman's film in relation to Poe's story
  • Archival interview with Vincent Price
  • Original Trailer
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by author and critic Tim Lucas and an extract from Vincent Price's long out of print autobiography, illustrated with original archive stills and posters
  • More to be announced!
Deranged

Dual Format Release. Street Date: August 12th.

Real-life Wisconsin serial killer Ed Gein inspired many distinguished films, including Psycho, The Silence of the Lambs and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, but none is quite as disturbing as Deranged.

Roberts Blossom gives an alarmingly convincing performance as rural eccentric Ezra Cobb, whose mother's death unhinges him to the point where he not only lovingly preserves her corpse in the living room but also goes out to find 'friends' to keep her company – not all of whom are dead when he finds them! Perversely, Ezra's more worried about what mother would say about his various activities than he is about the prospect of being found out. Indeed, like Gein, he's cheerfully open about his activities when visiting friends, but no-one believes him.

Like Carnival of Souls and The Honeymoon Killers, this is one of American horror cinema's great one-offs, an eerie, genuinely unsettling but also darkly comic experience.

Special Features:
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the unrated version, featuring the infamous 'brain-scooping scene', available uncut in the UK for the first time!
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Audio commentary with special effects artist Tom Savini
  • Introduction to the film by Savini
  • A Blossoming Brilliance: Scott Spiegel (Intruder, Evil Dead II) speaks about Deranged star Roberts Blossom and the lasting legacy of this gore-soaked gem
  • Ed Gein: From Murder to Movies - Laurence R. Harvey (The Human Centipide II) discusses the lurid legacy of the Wisconsin serial killer and the secrets of portraying a cinematic psychopath
  • Original Trailer
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Nat Marsh
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by Stephen Thrower, author of Nightmare USA, and an archive interview with producer Bob Clark by Calum Waddell, illustrated with original archive stills and posters
  • And more to be announced!
The Last American Virgin

Dual Format Release. Street Date: September 23rd.

Gary, Rick and David are American teens with one thing on their mind. They move from party to party, trying out their latest chat-up lines, which usually ends in miserable failure for Gary, as he's more interested in finding true romance than a quick fumble in someone's parents' bedroom. So when Karen arrives at their school, Gary falls head over heels in love, but Rick's baser intentions towards her threaten to break up their friendship for good.

Championed by Eli Roth (Hostel) as one of the most underrated films of its era, The Last American Virgin is a raucous but also surprisingly intelligent and sobering look at the hideousness of growing up, peer pressures, misplaced expectations and unforeseen consequences.

It's also a superb snapshot of the early Eighties music scene, with the soundtrack featuring Blondie, Devo, The Human League, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Police, U2 and many others.

Special Features:
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of the film, available in the UK for the first time!
  • Original uncompressed PCM Stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • Optional Isolated Music & Effects track
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Brand new interview with director Boaz Davidson
  • Brand new interviews with stars Lawrence Monoson and Diane Franklin
  • Brand new interview with cinematographer Adam Greenberg
  • Original Trailer
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by The Red Dress
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by critic and publisher Robin Bougie and an interview with The Last American Virgin super fan Eli Roth conducted by Calum Waddell, illustrated with original archive stills and posters
Lifeforce

Standard Blu-ray and Limited Edition SteelBook Releases. Street Date: September 30th.

When a space shuttle crew finds a mysterious spacecraft containing three human-looking creatures in a state of suspended animation, they bring them back to Earth for further investigation.

It's only then that scientists discover that they are in fact a race of space vampires that feed off people's life-force rather than their blood. So when they escape and run amok in London, the consequences are apocalyptic - and the shuttle crew's only survivor (Steve Railsback) seems to be the only man who can stop them.

Based on Colin Wilson's novel 'The Space Vampires', co-written by Dan O'Bannon (Alien, Return of the Living Dead) and directed by Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist), this lively sci-fi horror romp has a stellar cast including Peter Firth, Frank Finlay and Patrick Stewart - although it's Mathilda May's appearance as a naked female alien that attracts most attention to this day.

Special Features:
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation of both the Theatrical and Director's Cuts
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • New audio commentary with director Tobe Hooper
  • New audio commentary with make-up effects artist Nick Maley
  • Cannon Fodder: The Making of Lifeforce - An epic UK-exclusive look at the genesis, production and release of Lifeforce featuring interviews with Hooper, producer Michael J. Kagan, editor John Grover, actors Aubrey Morris and Nicholas Ball, makeup artist Sandra Exelby, screenwriter Michael Armstrong, sound designer Vernon Messenger, artistic designers Tom Adams and Douglas Smith and effects artist John Schoonraad.
  • New Cast & Crew Retrospective with star Steve Railsback, Hooper, Mathilda May and more!
  • Original Theatrical Trailer
  • TV Spot
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Gary Pullin
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film, a new interview with Oscar-winning visual effects artist John Dykstra by Calum Waddell, illustrated with original archive stills and posters
  • More to be announced
Squirm

Dual Format Release. Street Date: September 16th.

One of the most original and entertaining of the revenge-of-nature films that characterised mid-1970s American horror, Squirm begins with a pylon being downed by a thunderstorm, sending millions of volts into the wet, conductive mud, which naturally gives hundreds of thousands of its wriggly inhabitants an insatiable hunger for human flesh.

And since the accident has also inconveniently cut off the electricity to Fly Creek, Georgia, its population could hardly be more vulnerable when the sun goes down. Houses can be barricaded against most intruders, but what happens when they're small enough to get into the water supply?

Writer-director Jeff Lieberman (who also made the cult classics Blue Sunshine and Just Before Dawn) achieves a near-perfect blend of knowing wit and good old-fashioned scares, with make-up genius Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London) on hand for some of the memorably disgusting special effects.

Special Features:
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD uncut presentation, available in the UK for the first time!
  • Original Uncompressed Mono Audio
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Audio commentary with director Jeff Lieberman
  • Filmed Live Q&A session with Lieberman and star Don Scardino from New York's Anthology Film Archives (2011)
  • Interview with Kim Newman
  • Original Trailer
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Gary Pullin
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by Lee Gambin, author of Massacred by Mother Nature and an interview with Jeff Lieberman by Calum Waddell, illustrated with original archive stills and posters
  • More to be announced!

OMG, This is almost too much excitement for one announcement. Wanna get them all, but will have to see how some like Dressed to Kill compare to US releases.

If there is sufficient reason to do so, would gladly triple dip on Lifeforce, but need to save money.

@Cortiz: Arrow's gone on record, stating that they've had to start region locking their titles. It's around the same time they've stopped doing the limited edition slipboxes.

I'll have to look into The Last American Virgin and Time Bandits, the former being non-existant on Blu and the latter having a very poor release.
