February Highlights

A Ghost Waits
An ingeniously unique and unpredictable combo of horror, humor and heart, A Ghost Waits is a DIY labor of love years in the making from first-time writer / director Adam Stovall and producer / star MacLeod Andrews.

From its opening spectral assault to its achingly poignant conclusion A Ghost Waits has shocked and surprised audiences around the world, and now makes its debut stacked with insightful bonus features that take you inside the process of creating this phantasmagorical marvel.

Lars Von Trier Season
ARROW also showcase some of most remarkable works of the controversial, iconic and ground breaking filmmaker Lars Von Trier this February in the UK, including Breaking the Waves, which stormed the Cannes festival, launched Emily Watson’s and Von Trier’s careers.

Also available on ARROW from February; the extraordinary, utterly unique Melancholia; the controversial Antichrist; the prude baiting epic Nymphomaniac Parts 1 and 2; and The House That Jack Built, where Von Trier elicited a career best performance from Matt Dillon as an architect / serial killer with OCD.

Beyond Re-Animator
Jeffrey Combs (The Frighteners), everyone’s favourite mad doctor, returns for the second sequel to Stuart Gordon’s undisputed 1985 splatter classic Re-Animator.

Once again helmed by gore guru Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator, Society) with memorably imaginative make-up effects by Screaming Mad George (Society, The Guyver), Beyond Re-Animator breathes new life into the hit horror franchise. Coming out February 5.

28 Days Later meets The Blair Witch Project as a mysterious virus turns the inhabitants of an apartment building into a horde of frenzied, bloodthirsty ghouls in [REC].

Fusing the zombie genre with the “found footage” format to throw the audience right into the midst of the action, [REC] is a terrifying, relentless rollercoaster ride which builds to one of the horror genre’s all time bone-chilling climaxes.

Alejandro Jodorowsky Season
Alejandro Jodorowsky is one of world cinema’s most fabled iconoclasts who shot to prominence as a 1970s counter-cultural icon thanks to the masterful movies presented on this collection: Fando y Lis, El Topo and The Holy Mountain.

These extraordinary films bedazzled audiences with their unique aesthetic, contrasting violence and beauty; the sublime and the sacrilegious; the mystical and the macabre.
