Title: Arrow (UK)
Post by: Kevin Coed on 09 Apr 2009 - 15:36
I notice that the Shameless forum has now changed and now the header now also includes 'Arrow's Masters of Giallo'. What's that all about? Intriguing.

Arrow's new label - so far announced are House by the Cemetery, Macabre and Sleepless.

Has anybody told them that only one of those titles is a giallo?

Post by: Stuart Chivers on 09 Apr 2009 - 16:14
And that all three have been readily available for years?
Title: Arrow (UK)
Post by: Kevin Coed on 09 Apr 2009 - 16:25
Well HOUSE has never been released uncut here before, and I don't think MACABRE has ever been released in the UK on DVD.
Title: Arrow (UK)
Post by: Stuart Chivers on 09 Apr 2009 - 19:55
I take your point, although anyone browsing the UK arm of Amazon could have picked up uncut versions of these films long before now. I just think it's a shame to see companies investing resources in releasing films that are already readily available. Whatever next: another Torso?
Title: Arrow (UK)
Post by: Kevin Coed on 09 Apr 2009 - 23:15
Why not? If another TORSO is what it takes to cover the costs of a potentially loss-making LIBIDO (to pluck a title out of the air) then I'm all for it. The market for an uncut HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY is far greater than any potential sales for,say, NAKED GIRL KILLED IN THE PARK. Be realistic; we're a minority audience and, considering the extra costs involved in releasing a DVD in the UK, we shouldn't expect any company to dive into the deep end just to satisfy our wants.

Post by: Stuart Chivers on 10 Apr 2009 - 10:12
Kevin, I understand the model you describe, and if it applies here, best of luck to all concerned. I just find it hard to believe that there's still a market for relatively obscure films that have already had numerous dvd releases. It's 2009 and broadband is common place. I realise that impulse purchases happen - that people are attracted (or not) to packages that catch their eye in HMV - but I'm sceptical as to whether they happen enough to justify more editions of familiar cult films. I suppose we don't know anything about these releases yet, and it may be that we can look forward to unprecedented quality, interesting extras and beautiful packaging . . . maybe.

I hope I'm wrong, btw, and that in six months time we're discussing Arrow's release of Libido rather than the demise of this line. I think they'd stand a better chance if they kicked off with something like The Washing Machine, though.

Apparently the House by the Cemetery is going to have some extras ::).
Title: Re: Arrow (UK)
Post by: Paul on 22 Apr 2009 - 09:24
I agree with Kevin - something like HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY will clean up on UK DVD - it's never had an uncut DVD release here, so the cover's going to be plastered with flashes drawing potential viewers too it. Us film-savvy types are a very small minority in the market. Mainstream horror fans who know naff-all about Italian genre cinema would be the intended target market for this new release...

Official press releases are out...

SLEEPLESS...

THE MASTER OF NIGHTMARES IS BACK!

True horror fans prepare to rejoice! The undead spirit of the "video nasty" and some of the best examples of Italian exploitation cinema are about to be raised from the grave and reborn on DVD courtesy of Arrow Video's forthcoming Masters of Giallo imprint.

The first bloody batch, hitting the shelves on 29th June 2009, gives a much-welcomed new lease of life to three of the genre's most revered classics – Lucio Fulci's THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, Lamberto Bava's MACABRE and Dario Argento's SLEEPLESS. Released completely uncut on DVD for the first time in the UK, each film comes with an unholy host of brand new extras, along with two-sided sleeve inserts featuring all-new, specially commissioned exploitation artwork plus the film's original release artwork. Finally paying these movies their due respects after far too long, these releases are everything an insatiably hungry horror fan could ask for. As a special bonus, each release also comes complete with a poster featuring the brand new art.

In Dario Argento's SLEEPLESS insomniac detective Moretti (Max von Sydow) is called upon to investigate a series of murders which bear a remarkable resemblance to those committed 17 years earlier and attributed to a killer nicknamed "The Dwarf". Is the new spate of crimes being committed by the same culprit or a copycat killer? Aided by Giacomo, the son of one of the original murderer's victims, Moretti sets out to solve the mystery.

Opening with a thrilling 20-minute sequence that reminds the viewer just why Argento is regarded as a true master of horror, SLEEPLESS sees the director on top form and his full of his trademarks, from the murderer's black glove and glinting knives to the beautiful women in peril, an abundance of red linen, unrelenting violence and, of course, glorious cinematic set-pieces, the best of which is an incredible, slow tracking shot of a carpet which leads to a truly gruesome pay-off.

SLEEPLESS (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (£15.99, tbc) by Arrow Video on 29th June 2009. Special Features include: Murder Madness and Mutilation: Sleepless and the Modern Italian Giallo; The Making of Sleepless; trailer; photo gallery; press kit.

MACABRE...

FOR GOD'S SAKE DON'T RAID THE FRIDGE!

True horror fans prepare to rejoice! The undead spirit of the "video nasty" and some of the best examples of Italian exploitation cinema are about to be raised from the grave and reborn on DVD courtesy of Arrow Video's forthcoming Masters of Giallo imprint.

The first bloody batch, hitting the shelves on 29th June 2009, gives a much-welcomed new lease of life to three of the genre's most revered classics – Lucio Fulci's THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, Lamberto Bava's MACABRE and Dario Argento's SLEEPLESS.

Finally paying these movies their due respects after far too long, these releases are everything an insatiably hungry horror fan could ask for. As a special bonus, each release also comes complete with a poster featuring the brand new art.

Lamberto Bava's stunning debut feature, MACABRE, is a stylish and blackly comic work bizarrely inspired by actual events. A disturbed young woman devastated by the death of her boyfriend moves into a boarding house where the blind landlord, regularly overhearing the sounds of lovemaking behind closed doors, becomes convinced his new tenant has resumed her passionate affair with her late lover! It sounds crazy, but the landlord never sees anyone enter or leave the apartment in question. Of coures, he is blind, but is that the only reason? As his quest to discover the truth behind his suspicions unfolds, his findings propel the distasteful proceedings to a chilling climax involving a fridge that will end viewers' midnight snack cravings forever.

MACABRE (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (£15.99, tbc) by Arrow Video on 29th June 2009. Special Features include: exclusive booklet – A Q&A with Lamberto Bava; Introduction to Macabre by Lamberto Bava; Macabre and the Golden Age of Italian Exploitation; trailer; photo gallery.

THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY...

YOU MAY JUST HAVE MORTGAGED YOUR LIFE!

True horror fans prepare to rejoice! The undead spirit of the "video nasty" and some of the best examples of Italian exploitation cinema are about to be raised from the grave and reborn on DVD courtesy of Arrow Video's forthcoming Masters of Giallo imprint.

The first bloody batch, hitting the shelves on 29th June 2009, gives a much-welcomed new lease of life to three of the genre's most revered classics – Lucio Fulci's THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, Lamberto Bava's MACABRE and Dario Argento's SLEEPLESS.

Finally paying these movies their due respects after far too long, these releases are everything an insatiably hungry horror fan could ask for. As a special bonus, each release also comes complete with a poster featuring the brand new art.

Gore-master Lucio Fulci's zombie classic THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY sees Dr. Norman Boyle rather ill-advisedly accepting a research assignment previously abandoned by a suicidal former colleague and moving his family into a creaky old mansion (unsurprisingly situated next to a cemetery!) in New England. It's not long before his young son begins repeating some dire warnings from his new "imaginary" friend relating to the house's bloody past and its equally ominous future. Meanwhile, Boyle's investigation into his colleague's death has unearthed the diabolical history of the house's original tenant, a deranged surgeon with a penchant for illegal experimentation and the benefits of flesh-eating immortality. Hey, what's that noise coming from the cellar? Cue maggot-riddled zombies, flesh-piercing pointy things, decapitation and much more.

THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (£15.99, tbc) by Arrow Video on 29th June 2009. Special Features include: Fulci in the House: The Italian Master of Splatter; photo gallery; US theatrical trailer; international theatrical trailer; US TV spot; deleted scene.

Final specs/press release for the Blu-ray and DVD releases of CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD...

(http://i237.photobucket.com/albums/ff15/The_Associates/Cityexploded-1small.jpg)

THE DEFINITIVE DVD AND BLU-RAY RELEASE OF LUCIO FULCI’S ZOMBIE CLASSIC.

One of the most revered zombie films of all time amongst horror fans, Lucio Fulci’s classic City Of The Living Dead gets the full Arrow Video treatment on DVD and Blu-ray in May 2010, presenting the film fully restored and uncut and complete with a host of unique and exclusive extras and featurettes (directed by Calum Waddell and edited and produced by Naomi Holwill with associate producer Nick Frame) specially commissioned for this must-have release.

Among the many extras are a newly recorded audio commentary with actor Giovanni Lombardo Radice, an introduction to the film by star Carlo De Mejo and ‘Carlo Of The Living Dead’, a 17-minute featurette in which De Mejo reflects upon his time working with the Italian master of splatter, Lucio Fulci.

The 50-minute ‘The Many Lives And Deaths Of Giovanni Lombaro Radice’ presents an extensive biography of the legendary screen victim, who guides viewers through the making of his most famous gut-crunching classics including ‘House On The Edge Of The Park’, ‘Cannibal Apocalypse’, ‘Cannibal Ferox’ and, of course, ‘City of the Living Dead’.

In addition to providing an alternative audio commentary to the main feature, legendary horror actress Catriona MacCall recalls playing the role of Mary in the film in ‘Dame Of The Dead’ and reflects upon the film 30 years on. Catriona also appears alongside Giovanni Lombardo Radice in a 20-minute retrospective Q&A session exclusively filmed live at the Glasgow Film Theatre following a recent special screening of the film.

Filmed in the Profondo Rosso shop in Rome, ‘Profondo Luigi: A Colleague’s Memories Of Lucio Fulci’ focuses on director Luigi Cozzi (Contamination; Starcrash; The Killer Must Kill Again) who talks about his own memories of Lucio Fulci and the Italian boom in zombie horror, while in ‘Fulci’s Daughter: Memories of the Italian Gore Maestro’, Antonella Fulci, the daughter of the legendary filmmaker, reflects upon ‘City Of The Living Dead’ and visits her father’s sets and speaks about his enduring legacy.

Both the DVD and the Blu-ray releases of ‘City Of The Living Dead’ also come with four sleeve artwork options and a newly commissioned booklet, ‘Fulci Of The Living Dead’, written by Calum Waddell and featuring exclusive new interviews with Sergio Stivaletti (Wax Mask), Carlo De Mejo, Antonella Fulci and Ian McCulloch (Zombie Flesh Eaters) among others, providing an in depth career retrospective on the Grand Old Man of Italian Gore. Plus both releases come with a double-sided poster and six postcards.

Directed by Lucio Fulci (The House By The Cemetery; The Beyond; Zombie Flesh Eaters) and starring Christopher George (Mortuary; The Exterminator; Grizzly), Catriona MacColl (The House By The Cemetery; The Beyond), Carlo De Mejo (The House By The Cemetery; Alien Contamination), Giovanni Lombardo Radice (Cannibal Apocalypse; Demons 3 and 4) and Michele Soavi (Demons; Phenomena; Tenebrae), City Of The Living Dead begins with the suicide of a priest in a church cemetery in the small town of Dunwich, New England. A sacrilegious act, the priest’s death mysteriously results in the opening of the gates of hell and, as fate would have it, it falls upon a reporter, a young psychic, a psychiatrist and his patient to team up and find a way to close the portal before All Saints Day, when the dead will rise and feed upon the living.

A hugely influential and much-admired work of horror cinema by one of the genre’s undisputed masters, City Of The Living Dead, taken purely as a stand-alone film, is a must-see horror classic. Now, this definitive special release from Arrow Video is, without doubt, a must-have for every horror fan.

City Of The Living Dead (cert. 18) will be released a two-disc DVD (£17.99) and single-disc Blu-ray (£22.99) by Arrow Video on 24th May 2010.

Special Features include: newly recorded audio commentary by actor Giovanni Lombardo Radice; audio commentary by actress Catriona MacColl and author Jay Slater; introduction to the film by star Carlo De Mejo; ‘Carlo Of The Living Dead featurette; ‘The Many Lives And Deaths Of Giovanni Lombardo Radice’ featurette; ‘Fulci’s Daughter: Memories Of The Italian Gore Maestro’ featurette; ‘Penning Some Paura’ featurette; ‘Profondo Luigi: A Colleague’s Memories Of Lucio Fulci’ featurette; ‘Fulci In The House – The Italian Master Of Splatter’ featurette.

Important info...

It has been brought to the attention of Arrow Video that incorrectly
manufactured stock of The Stendhal Syndrome and The Card Player has been
released onto the market. The one fault on both discs is the absence of
English subtitles. This will not affect the enjoyment of fans who prefer the
English dubs and otherwise the discs are as intended but for those of you
who like to select the Italian tracks and don't have a grasp of the language
you may find the English subtitles beneficial!

This is of course extremely annoying and Arrow Video would like to offer
their apologies to all fans for the inconvenience this may cause.

If you don't need English subtitles your disc is fine but for those of you
who are affected please hang onto the DVD packaging and poster and booklet
inserts and post the DISC ONLY back to:

Arrow Video Returns
Ocrhard Villa
Porters Park Drive
Shenley
Herts
WD7 9DS

Arrow Video will mail back to you a correct replacement disc plus a bonus
DVD to apologise for the inconvenience. Please ensure that you enclose a
copy of your full name, address and postcode.

Please send any queries to - returns@arrowfilms.co.uk

New procedures are now being put in place to try to ensure there's not a
repeat of this!

You’re right but in the case of INFERNO there’s justifiable grounds to overturn the BBFC’s original cuts. The shot of the bookseller hitting the cat’s head could be staged – it’s certainly not graphic, though the other cut—with the cat eating the mouse—might still cause problems, I don’t know.

It'll be interesting to see which versions of TENEBRAE and PHENOMENA Arrow put out. I have the uncut Dutch disc of TENEBRAE (which has missing footage in most other versions due to print damage) and the 'integral hard' version of PHENOMENA that was released by either Dragon or Raptor (forget which) in Germany.

Post by: Inspector Tanzi on 26 May 2010 - 14:59
I have sent the BBFC a letter:

Hello there

I'm just emailing you to say I am rather annoyed at your choice to cut the new Arrow release of Dario Argento's Inferno.

I completely understand that you have to cut scenes of animal cruelty and in most cases I totally agree but all this is is a cat eating a mouse! It's a natural phenomenon, it's what cats do. You see a lot worse than this on David Attenborough programmes.

Is it one rule for one director and one for another? I feel if Steven Spielberg or some other "respected" director had made this film it would have been left in. For instance if Dario Argento had made Apocalypse Now exactly the same way as Francis Ford Coppola would it have remained uncut or would the killing of the cow have been censored?

I thought you had come along a long way in recent years, apparently I thought wrong.

It's decisions like this that can sometimes make or break a company, Arrow have my full support in their releases but I have a principal not to buy films that have been censored by yourselves, I feel like I am getting cheated.

Word will and has got about that this release will be cut and it will affect how many people purchase it.

If companies sales are affected because their films are cut I find it rather sad, especially the fact that they have to pay your good selves a ridiculous amount of money for you to cut and potentially ruin their films for them.

If you're really into mouse-killing-action (and who isn't?), you can always try your luck with the INFERNO blu-ray we will be releasing in August.

It will be a 2-disc set, with one blu-ray for the film, plus a DVD for the Extras (and there will be lots of them).

The disc will feature German, Italian and English language tracks along with German and English subtitles.

somewhere at wikipedia I found a remark stating that this version was slightly cut, though I couldn't find any other evidence of that. Can someone enlighten me?

What puzzled me when I was watching the movie was that I found it to be rather less brutal than I had expected. So was this due to cuts, or just my exaggerated expectations?

Also on the list for the first quarter of 2011 is Nico Mastorakis' classic, unrelentingly brutal Video Nasty, Island of Death, this time, presented completely uncut!  In an awesome turn of events, some proposed, unsolicited art from AV regular Rick Melton was received so well by the Cult Labs forum members, it was accepted as official!  We don't have specs on this disc yet, but I can show you the cool art work.  Island of Death is due March 21st, 2011.

There's no mention of HD remastering on Mastorakis' site.  He remastered a bunch of his titles in 2002 in both NTSC and PAL (no mention of whether they were created from an HD master or separate telecines, but 2002 was that gray time when HD mastering wasn't yet the standard).

Latest news from Arrow as regards the faulty transfer of their THE BEYOND Blu-ray and the fact that a lot of discs were manufactured and sent to shops before the faulty opening sequence was brought to their attention.

Quote
- The opening sequence is now in the correct sepia rather than monochrome supplied by the licensor and we're happy to report that Stephen Thrower says he's never seen the film look so good.
- The final disc will be a BD50 and with a higher bitrate than the review discs.

So all good - here's the bit to note carefully.

Due to retail lead times some stock had been manufactured so when you get the set check the disc and if it's an old one Arrow will do a swap - by post - as has been very successfully done in the past. All you'll be doing is popping that disc only into the post so it's very simple (full details to follow)

The original release date of March 14 still stands and Arrow of course are very apologetic for any inconvenience this may have caused.

A further note is that there is no way to tell if you have the incorrect disc, you have to play it to find out.

I wouldn't be surprised if the only way to get a correct version is to buy a faulty one and send it back. Sounds like they went ahead and pressed up the entire first duplication run using the duff version. How many do you think that would be? A thousand plus units?

Have Arrow fucked up again?

Just reading this on another forum about Phenomena.


Bear with me here - previously there has been the cut to fuck Creepers version, and the full Directors Cut version, approx 110 mins.

Then there is the 116 minute Integral version, released by Dragon in a limited edition DVD, which has 6 minutes or so of extra stuff within the film - but all in Italian.

Its this version Arrow have released on Blu Ray EXCEPT a couple of people are protesting that some of the scenes that were originally in English are now in Italian as well!

In other words they are saying Arrow has fucked up, and released something thats NOT the English language Directors Cut + extra scenes in English... but in fact a new cut thats neither one thing nor the other.

I'm pretty sure they're right too; I watched it last night. I'm going to check it against the Dragon release when I have time and see. But if so, then the Arrow Blu Ray, as beautiful as it is, isnt quite the Integral Cut we all wanted or expected it to be.

I'm pretty sure the line about not getting any sleep if thinking about Paul Corvino was dubbed into English, whereas here it's in Italian. The multi language version got on my tits, even if it did lose the actors' real voices. Unless there's a story reason for suddenly speaking in a different language (demonic possession, Nazis, a really good orgasm etc.) then it takes me out of the film (probably a good thing in this case). Of course if they were Shameless they'd call it a Fan Edit!

Can't they just use the transfer from BU's disc or are transfers/encodings of movies actually copyrighted, even if the company who released the disc don't even own rights to the movie itself anymore? Can the rights owner for the movie use the BU disc to publicly show the movie to an audience or do they need to ask permission from BU?
When the movie finally goes to public domain we can't make copies of it for free because all the encodings in existence are copyrighted to someone? :-*

An interesting question and I would be inclined to say that there probably is a case for there being an IP infringement if someone utilized an HD master without the permission of the company which created it. After all, the creation of an HD master is a very costly exercise.

I wonder why Arrow don't have access to BU's HD transfer? Was this a refusal on the part of BU, I wonder? After all, it's an opportunity for BU to make some extra money - I'd imagine that even if they don't own distribution rights, they still own the transfer and, as far as I'm aware, when a distributor licenses a title they can use whatever materials they have access to, right? I'm inclined to think, that for whatever reason it may be, that BU have refused Arrow access to their master, or it was too expensive. Cheapskate Arrow.  ;D

There's every chance they can be reimbursed through their insurance policies but it will be months before the firms pay up and they will have to foot a bill for replication in the mean time and without the revenue generated from re-orders coming in it could spell and end for many of the smaller companies.

Not really much to write home about is there? Combat Shock is probably the most interesting title out of the Troma's but I'm OK with my DVD of that...

I overlooked the WILDGEESE and WHO DARES WINS releases, probably because they'd been announced to come out much earlier in the year. Both are great titles but I've already got Arrow's first WDW Blu-ray and own the WD on DVD. It was the Troma titles that left me cold. I've seen CLASS OF NUKE 'EM HIGH and COMBAT SHOCK and didn't care much for either.

Lady Snowblood I'll be having. Had to let my R1 DVD's go recently as the first one was starting to fetch decent money.

The rest... I'll grab the two actioners sometime if I can find them cheap probably but that's about it. Haven't seen Combat Shock for a long time though.

I can't say I'm too dissappointrd though. There's tons coming out and already more than I can afford. Is Troma really that big? I've just never been able to get on with them.

Alan Jones tweeted a week back "Lucio Fulci expert Steve Thrower and I will record a DVD commentary on ZOMBIE FLESHEATERS later this month for the Arrow Blu-ray release".

Stephen from Cu*t Labs posted at Blu-ray.com "Jones has a big f*****g mouth on him. Hope Arrow kick his arse for leaking this"

I saw this week on a CL thread that Sarah alluded to how she had once been on the receiving end of a leak and how "months of work"and all the "fun which had been planned" had been ruined.

I guess she was referring to Jonny sussing the mystery Shameless release was Cannibal Holocaust. It's bizarre because Jonny only posted a link to the Cine Excess site and an article mentioning the new cut of the film. What's really odd is that Sarah looked upon this as some kind of atrocity and immediately unfriended Jonny and I on Facebook. Yeah, that'll teach us.

I think they (Associates/Fetch) see this secrecy and shenanigans as a big part of their "release strategy".

Still, AJ does have a big fucking mouth and I'd take a 1000 PRs over one of him any day!

My old girlfriend hates him and she had no interest in cinema or anything,at the time i didn't even know who he was,went into the cinema store to get fright fest tickets for the george romero 'land of the dead' premier,spoke to the assistant,out come AJ saying whoever it is wanting tickets can only have them if he says so,looks me up and down a couple times,breaks out in a big creepy grin and says 'oh,your definately allowed to come,you can come as my guest,but she cant come' all in a half joking/flirty sort of way.

Zombie Flesh Eaters (Arrow Video Blu-ray SteelBook and separate Blu-ray and DVD sets)

THEY WILL RISE TO SUCK THE BLOOD OF THE LIVING!

From the sleazy video nasty vaults comes a movie so stained with controversy and moral indignation that the very mention of its name sends shudders down the spines of the weak stomached and censorious – Zombie Flesh Eaters. A gut-munching, shark wrestling, eye-gouging orgy of topless skin divers, mud-caked undead terror and Italian splatter from the dark imagination of horror genius Lucio Fulci (The Beyond, City of The Living Dead).

An abandoned boat in New York Harbour unleashes a deadly flesh crazed Zombie cargo… A Young American woman and a journalist investigate a tropical island where a deadly disease is making the dead walk… Soon, thoughts of getting to the bottom of the murderous curse will be forgotten, as Fulci’s walking corpses overwhelm the living and reports come in that the Big Apple is swarming with the living dead…

After over thirty years, Zombie Flesh Eaters still has the power to shock and offend the unwilling… Check out this classic ‘sadist video’ and revel in a wonderfully offensive movie that once helped usher in a moral panic!

- ALIENS, CANNIBALS AND ZOMBIES: A TRILOGY OF ITALIAN TERROR: Actor Ian McCulloch remembers his three classics of Latin horror lunacy - ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS, CONTAMINATION and ZOMBI HOLOCAUST

- FROM ROMERO TO ROME: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE ITALIAN ZOMBIE FILM: Veteran Fulci screenwriters Dardano Sacchetti (THE BEYOND) and Antonio Tentori (CAT IN THE BRAIN), celebrated UK critic Kim Newman and filmmakers Luigi Cozzi (CONTAMINATION), Ruggero Deodato (CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST), Russ Streiner (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) plus many more share memories of the genesis of corpse-crunching cinema - from Romero's early templates to the gory glory days of Fulci and his many successors.

- THE MEAT MUNCHING MOVIES OF GINO ROSSI: The special effects magician behind many Italian splatter classics talks about his most famous gore-drenched greats - and shows props from many plasma-packed masterworks - including ZOMBIE FLESH-EATERS, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, CANNIBAL FEROX, BURIAL GROUND and PIRANHA II.

Oddly enough a few of the titles there are ones that I queried with Arrow a few months ago when the Arrow Trailer Reel appeared on one of their BluRays.
I've pinched this from the Cult Labs Forum but these are the titles deduced -

1) Django, Prepare A Coffin
2) Deadly Blessing
3) Baise Moi
4) Camille 2000
5) The Lickerish Quartet
6) Score
7) Dead End Drive-in
8) Lisa & The Devil
9) House of Exorcism
10) Black Sunday
11) I, Vampiri

The lack of 1080P mention would suggest that I Vampiri is SD but I have to admit, the specs of Black Sunday are impressive, especially including the AIP version and the language options.


Special Features:

- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of two versions of the film; ‘The Mask of Satan’ – the European version with score by Roberto Nicolosi & ‘Black Sunday’ – the re-edited and re-dubbed AIP version with Les Baxter score, on home video for the first time
- Three audio versions: Optional Italian, European English and AIP English re-dub and re-score
- English SDH subtitles for both English versions and a new English subtitle translation of the Italian audio
- Audio Commentary with Bava biographer and expert Tim Lucas
- Introduction to the film by author and critic Alan Jones
- Interview with star and horror icon Barbara Steele
- Deleted Scene from the Italian version with notes by Tim Lucas
- International Trailer
- US Trailer
- Italian Trailer
- TV Spot
- I Vampiri (1956) – Italy’s first sound horror film directed by Riccardo Freda and Mario Bava
- US I Vampiri Trailer ‘The Devil’s Commandment’
- Trailer reel – trailers of all the major works by Mario Bava
- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Graham Humphreys
- Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the films by Matt Bailey and Alan Jones, illustrated with original archive stills and posters

Have to say, the inclusion of the AIP version and Italian language option on Black Sunday make this essential for me – glad I held out on the Kino blu-ray now. Arrow's Lisa and the Devil also includes the Italian track.

Still impressive specs none the less, I very nearly bought a multi region set up specifically for the kino bava releases, glad i held off for the time being. It would be nice to get a uk friendly blu ray of 'hatchet for a honeymoon' as that is one of my faves

This would make my Top 20 Spag Westerns list and is one of the better Django spin-offs in my opinion. A rare serious role for Terence Hill and also features Horst Frank in full smarmy git mode. I love Gianfranco Reverberi's soundtrack as well (which would later be sampled by Gnarls Barkley)

The only reason im surprised at the inclusion of the aip version is that anchor bay US tried to include it with their bava boxset and couldn't, presumably because of rights issues, so im curious as to what has changed with that.

This is the first mention of BLACK SABBATH. If they get the AIP version of that too it'll be quite major.

Apparently it does:

-   High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation of two versions of the film; ‘I tre volti della paura’ – the European version with score by Roberto Nicolosi & ‘Black Sabbath’ – the re-edited and re-dubbed AIP version with Les Baxter score, on home video for the first time
-   English SDH subtitles for English Audio and a new English subtitle translation of the Italian audio
-   Audio Commentary with Bava biographer and expert Tim Lucas
-   Introduction to the film by author and critic Alan Jones
-   A Life In Film – An Interview with star Mark Damon
-   Three Faces of Black Sabbath – A comparison of the different versions of the film
-   International Trailer
-   US Trailer
-   Italian Trailer
-   TV and Radio Spots
-   Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by critic David Cairns and a substantial interview with AIP Producer Samuel Z. Arkoff on his experiences of working with Bava, conducted by Tim Lucas, illustrated with original stills and posters

No need to ask me, sure you can look it up somewhere.

Is it ever possible for Tanzi to just play nice? I'm not a fanboy of Arrow or Shameless I just post bits and bobs of news that I find that may be of interest, this is after all a forum dedicated to Euro Cult. I think we should be celebrating the fact that a UK company is releasing any Bava titles besides Euro Cult titles full stop.

What I mean by a 'Bava explosion' is that for years there was little to none of his films released in the UK then all of a sudden were getting treated to Blu Ray releases. I know a huge amount of Bava's work has been issued in the US before but a lot of his films have never seen a UK release so it looks like a Bava explosion to me.

If you want me to play not nice to show you what it's like to play not nice that's fine by be. But I haven't been, it's banter Bruno gets similar comments when he's going wild about Code Red titles.


I'm just stating how you go wild when Shameless or Arrow release things. No one else comes running on here excitedly with things like this:


"Breaking News at one o'clock. Two NEW, yes, that's right two NEW releases from Arrow to be announced. Stop what you're doing, stop work, stop play, stop cooking your dinner, this is going to be a very special announcement"


You must admit it was quite funny one time when you got caught up in all they hype and secrecy about what was to come thinking it was going to be some Italian stuff and it turned out to be a load of Troma shit.


But what I hear Arrow and Cunt labs have parted ways with a load of them over there going screaming about how Arrow wouldn't be anything if it wasn't for them, what a load of rubbish.


Anyway, I'll carry on posting as I see fit, If Jonny doesn't like me he can kick me off, after all he only pulls me up for such comments and never Rich.

Have a look at this regarding the recent ZFE fiasco, what a bunch of cunts !!!

Update on recent events:
We are very sorry for the poor communication and service from our web store over Christmas and New Year. This is certainly not representative of our normal service. We had to move our distribution centre as our former one was going out of business so this was not a planned move and unfortunately came at the busiest time of the year and in the movement of stock and the large influx of orders caused delays and incorrect orders. This wasn't properly communicated to us from the web order department so we were as in the dark as you. Things are now on track and our usual top service should be in order now! Please keep us informed of your ordering experiences as your feedback is important and will allow us to ensure a high level of service continues.

The second matter has been very difficult to resolve and that is the missing 6 seconds on the Zombie Flesh Eaters Blu-ray. After three independent QCs and literally hundreds of reviews, no one noticed the missing footage, this was brought to our attention by an eagle eyed customer and since then we have been looking into how to fix this. The missing six seconds are caused by the seamless branching 'in point' being incorrectly positioned 6 seconds late and causes a shot of the New York harbour and the movement of the boat into screen to be missing following the credits. We did not initially consider a replacement programme as the replacement programme for The Beyond has not been in a success in that sadly it has been abused as we have now issued many more discs than we actually manufactured. We have therefore decided that we will have a replacement programme for Zombie Flesh Eaters but at a small cost in order to deter those who have claimed discs by forging proof of purchase. Simply the disc may be purchased from our website so there is no need to send us your disc, or proof of purchase making the process very simple and as pain free as possible. Discs are now being manufactured and we will endeavour to make these available as soon as possible, this will likely be a week or so. The replacement disc can be purchased here: Arrowfilms

In light of this situation we have amended our processes for authoring and disc QC and we will endeavour for this not to happen again. We can only apologise and hope you are enjoying your Zombie Flesh Eaters packages otherwise. We have a bumper year ahead with some pretty fantastic titles that we intend on doing justice to, more restorations are planned and we hope there will be a few tricks up our sleeve you will enjoy.

So to get a replacement disc i have to pay £5 + £3 p&p......cheeky fuckers !

Took them 2 months to send my order of 5 Blu-rays, which was made more problematic by the downright lies i was told by their staff, the only reason i got it in the end was because i demanded a refund, i gave them one last chance and wanted a tracking number.I think this replacement programe falls foul of the sale and supply of goods act  and i think trading standards would be very interested in this, absolutely jaw dropping !

I do want to support the Bava releases but all this leaves a very nasty taste !

I'll be supporting these Arrow Bava Blu releases, although I'll wait for a few weeks after they're released before picking them up just in case of any issues. I still have most of the early Bavas on VHS and don't have a multi-region Blu Ray player, so I'm actually quite looking forward to them.

So to get a replacement disc i have to pay £5 + £3 p&p......cheeky fuckers !


The backlash from this has changed their minds about the replacement program ( copied from dvd maniacs, thanx to the original poster )

We did all we could to make this edition perfect and special and it was 9 months of production time and a huge amount of money in the making. It is incredibly frustrating that anything may have gone amiss that would have tarnished our customers enjoyment of the release.
 
The idea behind the £5 replacement disc programme on ZFE was not for commercial gain but was conceived for 2 reasons. Firstly as a company with few number of employees it was a way of facilitating the replacement programme without the administrative need to handle each enquiry internally. Secondly, we ran a replacement programme on The Beyond that was systematically abused, we wanted to avoid this situation again.
 
On reflection, we can certainly see how the £5 plus postage could irk someone who had purchased the product at full price, especially as a pre-order. We would like to apologise therefore for this ill-conceived programme.
 
We will offer anyone who has purchased any of the Zombie Flesh Eaters Blu Ray releases a free replacement of the disc on receipt of their original disc. We will provide details of where to send the disc very shortly. Anyone who has purchased a disc will receive a refund.
 
Thanks again for your continued custom

Lifeforce SteelBook / Blu-ray

IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE, THE TERROR BEGINS.

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.

The Last American Virgin Dual Format Blu-ray & DVD

THE COMEDY THAT PUTS ZIP INTO BEING A TEEN…

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

Squirm Dual Format Blu-ray & DVD

THIS WAS THE NIGHT OF THE CRAWLING TERROR!

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)

The Fall of the House of Usher SteelBook / Blu-ray

HE BURIED HER ALIVE… TO SAVE HIS SOUL!

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 fiancée 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

- 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

Time Bandits SteelBook / Blu-ray / DVD

… THEY DIDN’T MAKE HISTORY, THEY STOLE IT!

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

Deranged Dual Format Blu-ray & DVD

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!

Dressed to Kill Blu-ray

THE LATEST FASHION IN MURDER

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

Runaway Train Dual Format Blu-ray & DVD

DESPERATE AND DETERMINED TO SURVIVE

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.

Special Features:
- 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

The Car Blu-ray

THERE'S NOWHERE TO RUN, NOWHERE TO HIDE, NO WAY TO STOP... THE CAR

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

- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Joe Wilson

As Stephen is reading this thread - I'd like to point out that Tanzi's views do not  necessarily coincide with my own.  I own several Arrow releases.

Why does everyone hate Calum Waddell?
I don't like him because he sent me a pm moaning because I said the animated intro's on the City Of The Living Dead extras were shit and amateurish. That was back when I wasted money on shitty Arrow products, not no more mind, I sold the lot and rid my collection of the cancer that was Arrow.

If you dislike arrow and shameless so much then I am baffled as to why you waste so much energy getting involved in the threads about them, arrow are doing pretty good work at the minute and they deserve the praise they are getting. The last two bava blu's pissed all over the recent kino releases.

Be baffled all you like northcott. I put good comments about things I like and bad comments about things I don't like.


And if Arrow carry on fucking up releases and having shit covers if I feel inclined to make a snidey comment I will.

Visualwise or just because there's the alternative Soundtracks AIP had done? I'm not concerned about having a "bastardised" soundtrack on them anyway.

I have nothing against the label , i mean they dont release westerns or crime but there are other labels that do so no matter, however i find it ironic that the same people who never had a bad word to say about the label now seem to hate it cos they dont support cult labs anymore.

Just shows the level of genius there that they won't buy films from a certain label because they stop using a certain PR company.

Aarron, Arrow doesn't fuck up all its releases. Fact. The company has released some really nice, definitive versions of great films. I must say, I am completely underwhelmed by this slate of titles though - stuff I have on Blu-ray already, or on DVD and haven't the urge to upgrade or stuff I have no interest in. That said, it's a strong line up for those who don't buy from outside the UK.

Jamiouse - watch some De Palma films, don't regurgitate the nonsensical ramblings of his idiotic detractors. He's a fucking great filmmaker. Yes, many of his thrillers pay homage to or even remake Hitchcock's films loosely, but he's a great director in his own right. I know you're a fan of gialli so De Palma's thrillers (especially Blow Out and Dressed to Kill) will be right up your street.

Aarron, Arrow doesn't fuck up all its releases.
I know that, I never said they fuck up "all" their releases, do you think I'm some sort of div or something? But you just know somewhere down the line sooner or later (more than likely sooner) they will fuck up again and you'll get people going on about it, if you don't buy them in the first place you're not going to get stung when it happens are you. Simple really.

And when they do fuck up their customer replacement policies are awful, you think they would have learnt that with The Beyond but they did it again with Zombie Flesh Eaters. Yes, I know they double backed and sorted it in the end (for most people) but the end of the day it's not good releasing a bad product then only giving those who bought one a few weeks to get a replacement. what about the ones that are still sitting in HMV, amazon, Zavvi etc that still have the bad discs?

And Paul, whatever you say or do nothing will make me change my mind about them, not even if they released the Merli/Lenzi's on Blu Ray, I still wouldn't buy them. So you can try to belittle me and twist it all you like.

I've had more shit experiences with Arrow than you have had buying stuff from WowHD but you still slate them occasionally. Seems you can have an opinion and I can't.

FUCK ARROW!

Arrow aren't perfect but they do a pretty good job with their releases overall. I don't personally think they are the bee's knees like some but i'm not anti them either. I think they are getting too commercial now. This slate is one of their worst, but i'm not gonna say no to cool stuff like the recent "Knightriders" blu ray or the upcoming "Lifeforce" steelbook.

Inspector Tanzi, why don't you just stick to getting releases that have been verified (extensively) by other people? I don't think much can go wrong that way.

As for me, I really like Arrow and Shameless. Especially Shameless, when those dvds were like 5-6 pounds on amazon.co.uk. The only thing I ever hated about them was the fact that "Flavia the heretic" was non-anamorphic. That was a major fuck up. But then again, so is that film.

By the way, I also hate those faggot fanboys on cult-labs.

You can see the tumbleweeds roll across the screen at Cult Labs these days, ever since Arrow left the forum it's deathly. In fact the sub forum that seems to have the most responses and interest is Arrows! Oh please refrain from using the term 'faggot'.

Black Sabbath Arrow Blu arrived in just two days after placing the order. Well pleased with the service. Need to wait over a month before I pick it up though, as I got it sent to my UK address to save on postage costs (yes, I'm a tight arse)

Might grab a few more before the promo ends.

I don't see the point in double dipping on Dressed to Kill, unless you're a fan of Arrow's packaging or want the original sound mix.

I thought the remixed 5.1 sounded pretty good. I certainly won't double dip.

I'm sure Richie Rich will enjoy reading it. (EDIT:I see he already has  ;D )

I actually think it needs preserving just in case.


Arrow commentary for THE CAR is painful to listen to (Rant)

Calum Waddell shouldn't be allowed to do these anymore. A friend of mine had this to say about probably the worst commentary we've heard.

" Aaahhhhhh... OK regarding The Car's dreadfully awful inept commentary track if I may be as bold as to say this "...it is what is is." It is what is is for the following reasons; a) clearly the young man conducting the interview was - too young (he even cites that he wasn't even born in '77 when it came out), too trivial in his questions and not engaging, because b) the director - despite his 88 years of age is one of those hard-asses a la Harrison Ford who will make it extremely painful for an interviewer if they see the person is going "by-the-numbers 101 for conducting an interview" - which again most of the blame lays at the feet of the too-youngish Scottish-sounding punk conducting his so-called audio commentary. The interviewer even commented on having forgotten his Q & A sheet (a stupid thing to say openly anyways), so not only is he conducting a "by-the-numbers-101 interview" but he's having to ad lib it as well, no wonder the director clammed up and became vague and spoke in general terms, because the interviewer was neither engaging or professional. Also another subtle "moot point" that interviewer kept missing no matter how gently or politely the director asked him too on numerous occasions is when to "Shut the fuck up!!!" and let a "money shot" scene play itself out and then prod the director gently about it, I'm sure that would have yielded better results too - there are times for moments of "pause" and "reflection" while conducting and audio commentary to come up for air and give the person who you're interviewing time for thought. This punk-ass-motherfucker just kept on needling him, and needling him where the director didn't wanna go in the first place. Again if you and I had been up to the task at hand, plus given our relatively now-mature age I'm sure it would have sounded a lot more engrossing and informative than the 93 minutes of utter redundant nonsense that Arrow actually had the nerve to put on. Plus the punk was needling him about the lack of gore because he was raised on Saw and Hostel - when it's quite obvious that this director is into drama and the human condition vs. "visceral thrills" since as he commented his latest project was movie about "hipocracy", so gruelling questions about why, why, why it wasn't bloodier wasn't helping the interview make any sort of progress. Next - since as you gather my #1 pet peeve ain't with the director (because although he was restrained - he still remains calm and courteous - despite the immature and condescending tone of punk-ass interviewer) but with the total lack of professionalism that the punk showed, plus his trivia and knowledge blew - royally! Wanna see a good example of how to conduct a proper audio commentary - here is a detailed list of all the things that could have been addressed and weren't;

1) Screen black as the Universal Logo fades on - Make aquite and brief intro "Welcome to the audio commentary track for The Car and also director Elliott Silverstein who was gracious enough to share his thoughts and memories with us - seeing as he is watching this for the very first time since it's debut 35 years ago. Thanks for granting us this time Mr. Silverstein." to which I'm sure he would have replied back to curtly in fashion "You're welcome". Now it's "shut the fuck up time until the main titles end with directed by Elliott Silverstein" - unless of course he freely offers to make a comment as the main titles roll.

2) It's still "shut the fuck up time" until we cut to first close-up scene of the bicycling doomed couple as they pause to have a quick chat and challenge each other to a race. During the pause when they're not moving/cycling you or I could subtley comment to Mr. Silverstein and tell him "By the way did you know that young actress Melody Thomas would star as Amy Irving schoolmate in Brain de Palma's The Fury the subsequent year. However she is now a staple icon figure ever since she joined the cast of The Young and The Restless late in 1978 and is now know as character Victor Newman's wife Mrs. Nikki Newman and also boast's the distinction of being the real-life wife of the show's producer?" and that would have probably illicit some kind of reply like "No I wasn't aware of that but thanks for telling me." or maybe it would lead to some kind of anecdote. Then as they start their race down the narrow mountain range road it's "shut the fuck up time" again until the young man goes hurtling off the bridge, because you can bet your ass the director would have something to toss our way at that point. Plus we cut to James Brolin after that in the bedroom with his sassy schoolteacher girlfriend - and contrary to what the naïve interviewer said about James Brolin on the Arrow Commentary about not making it big until "The Amytiville Horror" '79, so I guess movies like Westworld, Skyjacked, or Capricon One don't count - right? Again not fucking trivia skills whatsoever. So again from the bridge death scene we cut to Brolin you can open the topic subtley by saying "There's our well-meaning hero, care to sharing your thoughts about working with Mr. Brolin?" to which he would have either said "He was a very good actor" or "No." and you leave it at that then again it's "shut the fuck up time" again until Brolin goes to wake up his two daughters who are pretending to be asleep.

3) The scene where James Brolin walks into the girls' bedroom can be commented by us (see another example of letting things flow without needling the director and forcing him to answer questions as if he were being interrogated by the SS) by saying "Oh and by the way a quick trivia note of the two sweet young girls who play Brolin's adorable daughters. First to the left the blonde girl is noneother than Kim Richards from Disney's original Escape To Witch Mountain, also infamously known as the little girl who is gunned down in cold blood after buying an ice cream cone in John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13, and also Devil Dog Hound of Hell - ever since those humble beginings Ms. Richards has had a very busy and active carreer in the TV sitcoms and movie industry as well as in theatrical films that continues to this day. And to the right Mr. Brolin is hugging Miss Richard's real-life kid sister - actress Kyle Richards who as a child actress and younger than her sister was already cutting her teeth on a slew of horror outings starting with The Car in '77, Tobe Hooper's Eaten Alive in '77, and Disney's Watcher in The Woods as the kid sister who channels the trapped alien to freedom in '78, and Kyle's TV Sitcom and movie industry portfolio is even more extensive then her sister's so she still continues in that domain exclusively since it's been more-than-good to her." See no need for the director to say a single solitary word - if he wants to comment on what we just shared great, if he doesn't "shut the fuck up".

Oh and just on a final note just to drive that last spike into this coffin, to show how much killer-car knowledge this fucking moron has he cites Duel, Christine, and then refers to something called The Van that came out around the same time - sorry but The Van 1977 was one of those Pinball Summer or Porky's pre-runner teen T&A exploitation picture. Also if he's such an expert killer car movie where's the mention of Charles Band's "Crash!" 1977 which is literally a bona-fide rip-off of The Car - car is possessed by woman wearing hoo-doo African talisman after her husband tries to off the cheating bitch , she ends up in the hospital occasionally lapsing in a Patrick-like trance and her disembodied car goes around LA causing massive metal and corporal damage, then there's The Hearse (1980), The Wraith (1986), and most recently we had the hybrid (pun intended) between The Car via way of Predator in Hybrid aka Super Hybrid (2009) - how come he didn't mention those, I'll tell you why because he's a young whippersnapper who has yet to acquire the vast knowledge of horror movie that we have because we have the years on him, so again Arrow was really stupid in choosing some 20-ish something "modern torture-porn" newbie to go interview an older seasoned director who was never a die-hard hardcore horror fan, this guy is more of a dramatic type of director so they should have sent someone seasoned like Kim Newman, Tim Lucas, or as a last resort we'll do if for free. Anyways I think that about covers it all about The Car. Superb transfer but it's brought down my a notch because of incompetent audio commentary track... 'nuff said. "

As independent distributors it's increasingly difficult to take risks with new titles so what we've all decided to do is re-release the same film twenty times over, across the globe, because we are confident that by releasing the same film twenty times over all the real fans will dedicate an entire shelf to just one film. Great, eh? We'll be cross-coordinating matching spines soon so once you have all 20 releases they'll look just dapper all lined up.

But we do sometimes take risks, I mean, when we sat down and really thought about what was still unreleased on DVD... no scratch that, fuckin' blu-ray... we really had to call in the experts, we looked at all the gialli, all the eurocrime, all the horror films that had never seen the light of day and then decided, once we'd smoked enough crack, that THIS! was the title everyone wanted to see...

...but nobody bought it, shame on you.

So we dug deeper into the archives, we really looked deep this time and we even found a giallo... We were confident that with our expertise and viewing knowledge that THIS! was the giallo everyone was screaming out for...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Girl-Room-DVD-Region-NTSC/dp/B006P4GHWA/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1375799965&sr=1-1&keywords=the+girl+in+room+2a (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Girl-Room-DVD-Region-NTSC/dp/B006P4GHWA/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1375799965&sr=1-1&keywords=the+girl+in+room+2a)

I mean, the director is an American, how much more Italian can you get?

But nobody bought them, and shame on the fans for not supporting us.

That's why we're giving you all digital release number sixteen of Nightmare City - because you deserve the very best.

I hope Arrow get around to releasing Four Flies on Grey Velvet next, that's only had about 7 digital releases, they could do a multi-disc set with the same film repeated on ten discs to top the 16 releases of Nightmare City.

The additional one second shows a brief glimpse of a seagull flying behind the mast. There are whispers of a triple disc Blu Ray re-release to celebrate this incredible find. Apparently there have been some industry heavyweights gathered for the commentary track to discuss the seagull at great length.

I'm shocked BU haven't already put a Blu of Nightmare City out as they seem to re-releasing all their catalogue titles on Blu. We do all realise of course that Raro's and Arrows discs will probably arrive within a few months of each other, then it'll be the task of deciding which version to get. I suppose in these economic times it makes sense for companies to release titles that already have HD masters or are in the process of having HD masters. I wonder if the rights holders charge more for HD releases?

So Arrow have announced a shitload of new titles on FB, but sadly no new Bava releases. The one I personally want the most after Kill Baby Kill and Blood and Black Lace is The Whip and the Body, especially since the Kino disc is supposed to be too dark in the color department. I was reading in threads on other forums and somewhere, probably on Latarnia, I saw mentioned that Arrow somewhere were supposed to have said that they aren't releasing this particular Bava film due to rights issues. Anybody here know where they might have said this? Last I heard they were going to release all of Bava's films.

I belive Arrows intention is to release every Bava film they can, that been said certain titles are owned by other companies. Danager - Diabolik and Hatchet are two that they won't be releasing, personally I'm waiting for The Girl Who Knew Too Much.

Then I'll be snatching up Kino's Hatchet for the Honeymoon for sure, but what version of The Whip and the Body is better all things considered? Kino's bluray with a subtitled italian language track (anybody here seen it in person?) or the italian DVD, which is supposed to be more color accurate but lacks subs for the italian track and, obviously, isn't HD. Decisions...

I don't have the Kino blu-ray of "The Whip and the Body", but the screenshots I've seen aren't very promising.  There's a custom job floating around that marries the English subtitles from the otherwise inferior VCI region 1 DVD to the beautiful looking EMS region 2 DVD.

RARO Blu-Ray

http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=218275 (http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=218275)



As independent distributors it's increasingly difficult to take risks with new titles so what we've all decided to do is re-release the same film twenty times over, across the globe, because we are confident that by releasing the same film twenty times over all the real fans will dedicate an entire shelf to just one film. Great, eh? We'll be cross-coordinating matching spines soon so once you have all 20 releases they'll look just dapper all lined up.

But we do sometimes take risks, I mean, when we sat down and really thought about what was still unreleased on DVD... no scratch that, fuckin' blu-ray... we really had to call in the experts, we looked at all the gialli, all the eurocrime, all the horror films that had never seen the light of day and then decided, once we'd smoked enough crack, that THIS! was the title everyone wanted to see...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Eagles-Over-London-Blu-ray-Import/dp/B0026LYMG4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1375799775&sr=8-3&keywords=eagles+over+london (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Eagles-Over-London-Blu-ray-Import/dp/B0026LYMG4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1375799775&sr=8-3&keywords=eagles+over+london)

...but nobody bought it, shame on you.

So we dug deeper into the archives, we really looked deep this time and we even found a giallo... We were confident that with our expertise and viewing knowledge that THIS! was the giallo everyone was screaming out for...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Girl-Room-DVD-Region-NTSC/dp/B006P4GHWA/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1375799965&sr=1-1&keywords=the+girl+in+room+2a (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Girl-Room-DVD-Region-NTSC/dp/B006P4GHWA/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1375799965&sr=1-1&keywords=the+girl+in+room+2a)

I mean, the director is an American, how much more Italian can you get?

But nobody bought them, and shame on the fans for not supporting us.

That's why we're giving you all digital release number sixteen of Nightmare City - because you deserve the very best.

I hope Arrow get around to releasing Four Flies on Grey Velvet next, that's only had about 7 digital releases, they could do a multi-disc set with the same film repeated on ten discs to top the 16 releases of Nightmare City.
I share your pain. It is unfortunate that the same few films get released all the time. Im sick of hearing the flimsy excuse that these more commercial selling films will fund the more obscure titles. Its pathetic really.

Does anyone know why Arrow have upped their Blu ray prices astronomically? They used to retail for around the £12-13 mark on Amazon, but their recent releases listed on Amazon are priced at around the £18 mark.... and Delta Force is a fuckin ridiculous £23 on there !!! :(  I know this will open the floodgate for Tanzi most probabaly...LOl  ;D

I would imagine it's not down to Arrow it's probably down to Amazon themselves. Alot of Arrow and Shameless titles seem to be silly prices on Amazon at the moment, but over at Zavvi they seem to be the regular £12.99 - £14.99 prices.

I would think Arrow will be having a mid year sale in June or if not an end of year sale like they did in December last year were most Blu's end up been £7.99  again.

Hope you're right, there's quite a few titles I want to buy at the moment but the price hike has put me off. Weird how when there wasn't a single title I wanted everything was low price but as soon as all the goodies arrive like the PHIBES films, THEATRE OF BLOOD etc the buggers all jump up in price! Typical!
Title: Re: Arrow (UK)
Post by: JAMIOUSE on 14 May 2014 - 20:10
It's still cheaper to buy Phibes from the Arrow Shop, I think it's £21.99 at the moment. When they announce their upcomming releases there always cheaper at the Arrow Shop, often £13.99 for the blu's. Amazon do price hikes on certain labels or brands a lot, look at the price of Shameless releases at moment. The Tenth Victim is somewhere around £23 last time I looked. They also do it to Doctor Who DVD's, upto the first week of release their usually £13.99 then they shoot upto £19.99 or beyond sometimes.

Phibes is £20.69 at Zavvi with the discount code 10SOON but (as Jamiouse says), I would expect it to be a good deal cheaper in one of Arrow's sales if you can wait.
