Ring The Collection



In 1998, director Hideo Nakata (Dark Water) unleashed a chilling tale of technological terror on unsuspecting audiences, which redefined the horror genre, launched the J-horror boom in the West and introduced a generation of moviegoers to a creepy, dark-haired girl called Sadako. The film's success spawned a slew of remakes, reimaginations and imitators, but none could quite boast the power of Nakata's original masterpiece, which melded traditional Japanese folklore with contemporary anxieties about the spread of technology.

A group of teenage friends are found dead, their bodies grotesquely contorted, their face twisted in terror. Reiko (Nanako Matsushima, When Marnie Was There), a journalist and the aunt of one of the victims, sets out to investigate the shocking phenomenon, and in the process uncovers a creepy unrban legend about a supposedly cursed videotape, the contents of which causes anyone who views it to die within a week - unless they can persuade someone else to watch it, and, in so doing, pass on the curse...

Arrow Video is proud to present the genre-defining trilogy - Ring, the film that started it all, plus Hideo Nakata's chilling sequel Ring 2, and the haunting origin story, Ring 0 - as well as the 'lost' original sequel, George Iida's Spiral, gathered together in glorious high definition and supplemented by a wealth of archival and newly created bonus materials.

Candyman



Dare you say his name five times? From the chilling imagination of horror master Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Nightbreed), comes Candyman- one of the greatest horror movies of the '90s, now newly restored on Blu-ray from Arrow Video

When grad student Helen Lyne (Virginia Madsen) begins working on a thesis about urban legends, she comes across the terrifying tale of the Candyman - a vengeful, hook-handed spirit who can be summoned by saying his name five times in the mirror. As her research leads her into the bowels of Chicago's deprived housing projects and deeper into the Candyman's world, Helen learns that some legends are best left well alone.

Expertly directed by British filmmaker Bernard Rose (Paperhouse) and boasting an astounding score by composer Philip Glass, Candyman ingeniously reworks Clive Barker's original short story "The Forbidden" (originally published as part of his groundbreaking Books of Blood series) into a modern horror parable that remains as timely today as ever.

City of the Living Dead

From the Italian godfather of gore, Lucio Fulci, comes City of the Living Dead, a notoriously nauseating, compellingly corporeal masterpiece of apocalyptic zombie horror!

A medium has a mysterious vision of a priest hanging himself... A seemingly dead woman awakes screaming in her coffin... And in the sleepy New England town of Dunwich, a girl vomits up her intestines and a local misfit has a drill bit ploughed into his cranium... These hallucinogenic, often grotesque visions punctuate a skeletal story telling of a reporter (Christopher George, The Exterminator, Pieces) and a psychic (Catriona MacColl, The House by the Cemetary, The Beyond) who must race agaisnt time to prevent hordes of rotting corpses spewing forth from the gates of hell...

Stridently going beyond the clacssical stylings of his horror hit Zombie Flesh Eaters,City of the Living Deadsees Fulci eschew conventional narrative logic in favour of a delirious, oneiric mode of storytelling which stresses visuals, surrealism and atmosphere (as well as offering up bucket-loads of brains, blood and guts!). Presented here in an exclusive 4K restoration with a wealth of extras, Fulci'dsgor -drenched classic can now be devoured as never before!

Waterworld


The most expensive film ever made at the time of it's release, Waterwordhas thrilled audiences through the years with its awe-inspiring action scenes, gargatuan maritime sets and ground-breaking special effects.

A definitive post-apocalyptic blockbuster, Waterworld stars Kevin Costner (The Untouchables) as The Mariner - a mutant trader, adrift in a dystopian future where Earth is sublerged under water and humankind struggles to survive on boats and ramshackle floating cities. The Mariner becomes embroiled with the Smoker, a gang of pirates who, let by villainous leader Deacon (Dennis Hopper, Blue Velvet), are seeking Enola (Tina MorenoNapoleon Dynamite), a girl with a map to the mythical realm of "Dryland" tattooed on her back.

Famous for both its epic scale and the controversy that swirled around its production, Waterworldis a key cult film of the 1990s, and an essential entry into the subgenre of ecologically-minded blockbusters. Presented here in an exclusive new restoration, in three different cuts, and with a wealth of extra material, this high-water mark of high-concept Hollywood can now be enjoyed as never before.

Phantasm

 
Long before Jason sprang from a watery burial, long before Freddy rose from a fiery cremation, there was The Tall Man. Inimitably brought to life by the late, great Angus Scrimm and put on the big screen by cult auteur Don Coscarelli, this iconic boogeyman was unleashed in 1979’s Phantasm to lurk in the shadowy depths behind many an impressionable mind’s bedframe.

The first in a phranchise that would fester in the psychologies of horror phans everywhere, Phantasm became a death-defyingly low-budget hit that kickstarted an increasingly bizarre universe replete with maniacal alien dwarves and skull-embedding metallic balls discharging blood and brain matter…at least you’ll never have to wonder what goes on behind the closed doors of small-town American mortuaries again.

Now resurrected in a 4K restoration overseen by J.J. Abrams with balls to the wall bonus material, from a cast and crew audio commentary to exclusive pheaturettes, the legacy of Angus Scrimm and his spinecurdling eyebrow raising abilities will live on to terrify boys and girls for generations to come.

“And know that as you watch, The Tall Man will be watching with you, just behind you there, in the shadows…”
– Angus Scrimm (1926-2016)

Lifeforce


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 Endless



Among the most exciting voices in genre cinema to emerge in recent years, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead return with their third feature, The Endless.

Benson and Moorhead play brothers, former members of a crazy UFO death cult , who receive a mysterious video cassette in the mail. The tape contains an eerie calling card from their past, inviting them to attend an event called the Ascension. Despite their apprehension, the pair agree to return for one day. At first their old friends in the cult seem warm and welcoming, but things soon turn strange as the brothers find themselves drawn into a vortex of bizarre rituals, strange messages, unseen forces and sinister supernatural secrets that threaten to tear apart the very fabric of reality.
