June At Arrow Video Will Provide A ‘Summer Break’

Nightsiren releasing soon on Arrow Video
It may not look like Summer will be with us very soon, it will be. When June finally comes as ever Arrow Video has got our backs with a summer that will give us a nice break.

A diverse range of films that are ready to light up our homes in June. Offering  a spellbinding drama, cult chillers and a black comedy all in 4K UHD.

First we’ll gather around the campfire, and hear a creepy tale of gruesome horror with the Madman on Limited Edition 4K UHD. Inspired by the same Cropsey urban legend which informed 1981’s The Burning and starring Dawn of the Dead’s Gaylen Ross (appearing under the pseudonym ‘Alexis Dubin’), Madman stands as one of the finest offerings from the golden age of hack ‘n’ slash.

Next up is a cult film in the truest sense, that has also become a classic – Withnail & I. Released  as a brand new 4K restoration on Limited Edition 4K UHD. Based on the real-life experiences of former actor turned writer/director Bruce Robinson, Withnail & I has become one of British cinema’s most fondly remembered comedies. Perfectly cast – with career-defining roles for Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths and Ralph Brown. 

Also this month, Arrow Video release of Mute Witness on Limited Edition 4K UHD and Limited Edition Blu-ray. Director Anthony Waller (The Piper, An American Werewolf in Paris) combines cat-and-mouse suspense with classic intrigue, in an updated take on the Hitchcockian thriller, in which the only witness to a brutal crime (Marina Sudina) can neither speak nor cry out in terror. Filmed on location in Moscow and co-starring Fay Ripley (Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein) and Evan Richards (Society), Mute Witness is an unpredictable, nerve-shreddingly tense viewing experience.

Finally in June, Nightsiren, on Limited Edition Blu-ray. Following her 2017 debut feature Filthy, writer and director Tereza Nvotová returns with a spellbinding contemporary drama that expertly blends psychological and supernatural horror to explore the intersections of misogyny and religious zealotry. Nvotová has created a captivating cinematic experience which has wowed audiences and critics alike on the international festival circuit, including Locarno where it won the Golden Leopard – Filmmakers of the Present award. Beguiling and atmospheric, Nightsiren is a superb effort from one of the most exciting new voices in cinema.

Gather around the campfire, and hear the tale of Madman Marz – an ill-tempered farmer who, one dark night, chopped up his wife and two children into pieces. When the locals learned of his heinous crimes, they exacted revenge – sinking an axe into his head and hanging him from a nearby tree. But the next day, Marz’s body was gone…

Thus the camp counsellor finishes his tale, closing with the warning never to say Marz’s name above a whisper, lest the hideously-deformed farmer comes looking for them. Naturally, the first thing that one of the young campers does is calls out Marz’s name – precipitating a terrifying night of murder, mayhem and sexy Jacuzzi vignettes!
