Arrow Video Announces December Titles

Posted September 27, 2013 03:44 PM by Webmaster

Arrow VideoBritish distributors Arrow Video have officially announced that they will add three titles to their Blu-ray catalog in December: Dario Argento's Tenebrae (1982), John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China (1986), and Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye (1973). Arrow Video will also release on DVD Paul Bartel's Lust in the Dust (1985).

Tenebrae

A notorious horror classic returns in all its depraved glory. This infamous video nasty updated the classic Giallo blueprint for the gorified 80s, courting controversy and drenching the viewer in crimson arterial spray.

A razor-wielding psycho is stalking the horror writer Peter Neal, in Rome to promote his latest work, Tenebre. But the author isn't the obsessive killer's only target, the beautiful women who surround him are doomed as one by one, they fall victim to the murderer's slashing blade…

Will fiction and reality blur as fear and madness take hold? Watch in terror as by turns the cast fall victim to the sadistic imagination of Dario Argento, Italy's master of horror.

Special Features:
  • Limited Edition SteelBook packaging featuring original artwork
  • Newly remastered High Definition digital transfer of the film

Big Trouble in Little China

Following Escape from New York and The Thing, John Carpenter and Kurt Russell re-unite for this mystical, action, adventure, comedy, kung-fu, monster, ghost story!

Russell plays Jack Burton, a reasonable guy who is about to experience some unreasonable things in San Francisco's Chinatown. As his friend's fiancée is kidnapped Jack becomes embroiled in a centuries-old battle between good and evil. At the root of it all is Lo Pan, a 2000-year-old magician who rules an empire of evil spirits. Jack goes to the rescue dodging demons, goblins and the unstoppable Three Storms as he battles through Lo Pan's dark domain.

One of Carpenters most enjoyable and best loved films, Big Trouble in Little China brilliantly juggles delirious set-pieces, comedy and kung-fu action with a razor sharp script of corking one-liners, as Jack would say "It's all in the reflexes".

  • Limited Edition SteelBook packaging

The Long Goodbye

When private eye Philip Marlowe (Elliott Gould) is visited by an old friend, this sets in train a series of events in which he's hired to search for a missing novelist (Sterling Hayden) and finds himself on the wrong side of vicious gangsters.

So far so faithful to Raymond Chandler, but Robert Altman's inspired adaptation of the writer's most personal novel takes his legendary detective and relocates him to the selfish, hedonistic culture of 1970s Hollywood, where he finds that his old-fashioned notions of honour and loyalty carry little weight, and even his smoking (universal in film noir) is now frowned upon.

Widely misunderstood at the time, The Long Goodbye is now regarded as one of Altman's best films and one of the outstanding American films of its era, with Gould's shambling, cat-obsessed Marlowe ranking alongside more outwardly faithful interpretations by Humphrey Bogart and Robert Mitchum.

Special Features:
  • High Definition presentation of the film from a digital transfer by MGM Studios
  • Original uncompressed mono 2.0 PCM audio
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired
  • Rip Van Marlowe – An interview with director Robert Altman and star Elliott Gould
  • Vilmos Zsigmond Flashes The Long Goodbye – An interview with the legendary cinematographer
  • Giggle and Give In – Paul Joyce's acclaimed documentary profile of Robert Altman, with contributions from Altman, Elliott Gould, Shelley Duvall, assistant director Alan Rudolph and screenwriter Joan Tewkesbury
  • David Thompson on Robert Altman - David Thompson, editor of 'Altman on Altman' and producer of the BBC's 'Robert Altman in England', talks about The Long Goodbye 's place in Altman's filmography
  • On Raymond Chandler - Raymond Chandler's biographer, Tom Williams, outlines the author's life and work and discusses Altman's adaptation of The Long Goodbye
  • On Hard Boiled Fiction - Crime writer and critic Maxim Jakubowski discusses the emergence of hard boiled detective characters from the pages of the pulp magazines from the 1920s through to the 1950s.
  • Original Theatrical Trailer
  • Radio Spots
  • Booklet featuring new writing on the film by Brad Stevens, a new interview with assistant director Alan Rudolph and an extract from American Cinematographer discussing Zsigmond's unique treatment of the film, illustrated with original archive stills and posters
  • Street Date: December 2
Lust in the Dust (ArrowDrome DVD)

The sun beats down hard on the town of Chili Verde, New Mexico – where temperatures flare and passions reach boiling in the midday heat. The locals spend their days downing Tequila and breaking bottles over heads… and that's just the womenfolk!

When Abel Wood, an enigmatic lone cowboy type, comes riding into town, the locals immediately suspect that he has come in search of the legendary buried gold. Quick on the draw and tall in the saddle he may be, but Abel faces stiff competition if he's to get his hands on the prized booty.

From the legendary Paul Bartel (Death Race 2000, Eating Raoul) Lust in the Dust is a treat for both fans of Westerns and lovers of John Waters-type subversive humour, featuring the inimitable Divine (Hairspray, Pink Flamingos) in a typically larger-than-life performance; whilst Tab Hunter, in the role of Abel, delivers a sharp-shooting, gun-toting turn worthy of Clint himself.

Special Features:
  • Original Theatrical Trailer
  • Booklet
  • Street Date: December 9th

Big Trouble in Little China includes ALL of the extras from the U.S. 20th Century Fox release, plus tons of new supplements, a booklet, and an awesome steelbook.

The transfer -- which was already really good - should match the U.S. release.

This is a must purchase for fans and steelbook collectors, IMHO.

Arrow is on a long winning streak, looks as if this slate of titles(will be gettin all three)rounds off a great year for them. Arrow is THE undisputed champion when it comes to releasing horror/cult movies in Europe, hell they might just be the best of the bunch worldwide!

@Pro-B: Nice! The last release(even though trashed on by many) I enjoyed because it was a very noticeable upgrade from the Anchor Bay DVD but it totally can be approved upon greatly. Now the dilemma of waiting for the Synapse release or picking up Arrow's nice looking Steelbook.

after reading the announcement about it being Fox's transfer, hope we get a review for Big Trouble to see if it looks any better than the previous blu. Wonder how long we have to wait for Synapse's Tenebrae.

I just bought the Fox release, but thankfully it was only like 8 dollars. Will double dip on Big Trouble Little China

Arrow has really raised their game the last couple years. I'd be all over that Big Trouble in Little China release, if it wasn't a double dip for me.
