In November, ARROW premieres a fearful horror debut, Jean Rollin and a Phantom in the Mall (NEWS)
Key highlights this NOVEMBER on the essential, alternative streaming service ARROW include the exclusive premiere of Michael Venus’s extraordinary horror SLEEP, a season of films from the legendary director Jean Rollin that includes vampires, hitchhikers and demonic cults, the incredible, jaw-dropping DUDE BRO PARTY MASSACRE III, a beautifully-restored cult 80s slasher complete with extras, and so much more...
Nightmare and trauma. Fear and repression. Guilt and atonement. Weaving together the emotional violence of horror with the cryptic motifs of German folk and faerie tales, ARROW is proud to present SLEEP, the debut feature from a major new talent in genre cinema. Richly conceived and confidently told, director Michael Venus draws influence from Mario Bava, David Lynch, Franz Kafka and the Brothers Grimm, but his voice is uniquely his own. As invested in substance and story as he is in style, Venus claws his way down to the roots of what haunts a people, a community, a nation and comes up screaming.
There is no shortage of horror in November on ARROW with PHANTOM OF THE MALL: ERIC’S REVENGE, an interpretation of Gaston Leroux’s classic novel The Phantom of the Opera like no other - it was only a matter of time before the slasher genre decided to take a stab at the tale, here presented in three different cuts of the film - the theatrical release, censored TV version and the ‘Integral Fan Cut’; and the improbably named and incredibly entertaining DUDE BRO PARTY MASSACRE III, featuring the serial killer “Motherface” on the rampage - fireworks are guaranteed! Also in November, an imaginary friend like no other, with DANIEL ISN’T REAL, featuring a star-making performance from Patrick Schwarzenegger, in a visually stunning, thought-provoking exploration of mental illness, entitlement and childhood trauma, perfectly tailored for our troubled times, and one of the most unique and captivating independent horror movies of recent years.
New seasons this November include a two-part season of films from the magnificent, maverick French director Jean Rollin, with psychedelic blood-drenched spectaculars, and mysterious and fantastical gothic tales, including The Shiver of the Vampires, The Demoniacs, The Iron Rose, and Requiem for a Vampire; Nightmares and Scary Tales, a world where a pleasant sleep and bad dreams collide, including Ringu, Dream Demon, and The Snake Girl and the Silver-haired Witch; Six Shooters vs Straight Razors, featuring directors who have tackled both Westerns and Giallos; and ARROW’s very own new frat ‘ΑΓΓΟΨ,’ with films including The Initiation, The Violent Years, and Sting of Death.
ALSO SHOWING: One-of-a-kind genre-bender that riffs on the yakuza film, coming-of-age drama SAILOR SUIT AND MACHINE GUN; nerve-twanging mystery chiller BODY AT BRIGHTON ROCK GUN, and more…
