In August, Arrow premieres a superb Tinseltown satire, final girls and video nasties (NEWS)


Key highlights this AUGUST on the essential, alternative streaming service ARROW include the exclusive premiere of brilliantly inventive comedy gem debut MAN UNDER TABLE, Elliot Page facing the aftermath of a virus in THE CURED, Justin Kurtzel’s devastating masterpiece THE SNOWTOWN MURDERS, the classic music documentary on genius singer/songwriter DANIEL JOHNSON, Korean ghost stories, Japanese erotic horror, drug dealers onscreen, Folk Horror classics, a season of subterranean beasties, B-movie mayhem, and so much more...


The feature debut from writer/director Noel David Taylor, MAN UNDER TABLE is a wildly inventive and original fantasy comedy, premiering exclusively on ARROW. Set against the backdrop of a crumbling dystopian Los Angeles, it pushes a spotlight onto the endlessly bizarre world of the Hollywood movie industry where things are never easy, dreams are crushed, content is king, and you’ll need to wear a gasmask to cope with the unnamed toxins in the polluted green.


The stylishly shot, and genuinely scary Korean chiller A TALE OF TWO SISTERS, directed by Kim Jee-woon (A Bittersweet Life, I Saw The Devil), about dark secrets in a family's past, is a devastating mix of style, scares and emotive storytelling that blurs the boundaries between genres and has had a profound influence on a new generation of filmmakers.


TV highlights for AUGUST include Season 2 of the superlative IRENE HUSS, based on the acclaimed books by Swedish author Helene Tursten, featuring six more feature-length episodes following a female police investigator in Gothenburg played by Angela Kovacs (Spring Tide, Wallander, and HASSEL, starring the amazing Ola Rapace (Skyfall) as a street smart detective who finds himself knee deep in corruption.


If you’re feeling in need of a good shower at the moment, make that doubly so after you tuck into August’s depraved season BAN THIS SICK FILTH PRESENTS: MORAL OUTRAGE. Sit back and straight, and prepare yourself for more sinful and sick filth from the most warped and depraved minds in the business, with really disgusting films for your dubious delectation including VICE ACADEMY, ORGIES OF EDO, AND UNDERWATER LOVE; and the classic 80s-era documentary VIDEO NASTIES: MORAL PANIC, CENSORSHIP AND VIDEOTAPE.


If that’s not enough for jaded palets, then ARROW Extreme is a season that collects together all of our toughest watches. These titles will punish you and push you to the edge, but you will absolutely never ever forget having seen any of them. So hold tight for THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT, AUDITION, NEKROMANTIK and ISLAND OF DEATH


ALSO SHOWING: THE RICK SLOANE COLLECTION VOL 1, the grotesque and macabre BLIND BEAST, psychological thriller FINAL GIRL, women in prison, women on the run and out of control female cops, as well as sex-starved demons, cult hit SUTURE and more...
