The Witch Who Came From the Sea (1976)

Another film in the American Film Project released by Arrow Video, The Witch Who Came From the Sea was designated as a video nasty in the U.K. in the early 80’s. Close to fifteen years ago, I went through the video nasty list and watched every title i could get my hands on, including The […]

The Premonition (1976)

A while back I received the American Horror Project, released by Arrow Video. The set includes three American horror films from the 70’s that were largely ignored upon release or had suffered from poor distribution on home video. The idea was that these were unique horror films that didn’t play by the traditional horror rules. […]

The Suspicious Death of a Minor (1975)

Every now and then I get an itch that can only be relieved by a giallo. For the uninitiated, giallo films were murder mysteries made in Italy predominantly in the early to mid 70’s. They were often very stylish with bombastic soundtracks, lurid murder scenes, beautiful women, and impressive cinematography. They were often more about […]

Dillinger (1973)

The name John Milius is synonymous with terms like macho, violent, and male. Writer of Apocalypse Now and director of films like Red Dawn and the ultimate macho movie, Conan the Barbarian, Milius has made a name for himself as a master macho storyteller. Dillinger, made by American International Pictures, was one of his first […]

The Ghoul (2017)

Rare is the film that Arrow puts out that hasn’t been released somewhere else before. Arrow is almost exclusively a label dedicated to re-releasing cult gems from around the world but they have released a few new releases as well. The Ghoul is one such film that is getting it’s premiere on the label. Not […]

Dead or Alive (1999)

I discovered director Takashi Miike around the year 2002. I believe the very first of his films that I saw was Audition. A friend of mine brought it over to my house for a group viewing and told us nothing about it. What started as a mild drama quickly turned into one of the most […]

The Slayer (1982)

  In my journeys through horror I have come across praise for The Slayer in some far flung corners. Never attributed as being one of the best horror flicks of the 80’s nor a hidden gem, still it has garnered some accolades though quiet enough that I can’t remember where or when. One of the […]

Madhouse (1981)

There was a time in my early 20s when I discovered the video nasties. These were films banned in the U.K. in the early 80’s for being too extreme. In some cases the films were merely banned because of the box art, not because of the film itself. In all there were 74 films that […]

Brain Damage (1988)

  I distinctly remember renting Brain Damage on vhs when I was in junior high. I saw it at the video store and honestly thought the movie was going to star Jeff Goldblum because of the box art. I also knew it was going to have a monster in it and I’ve always loved creature […]

Wolfguy: Enraged Lycanthrope (1975)

I have to be honest and say that before Arrow Video put this movie out, I had never heard of it. The cover art plus the title plus Sonny Chiba attracted my attention and I was excited to check out this slice of 70’s action. Wolfguy: Enraged Lycanthrope come from the same director as Sister […]
