Arrow Video were a huge success in the UK for their various cult and horror releases. They have, over the last few years, also won several ‘Label of the Year’ awards by The Guardian (2011, 2013) and Home Cinema Choice Magazine (2010/2013/2014) as well as awards from other institutions and festivals around the world.
There were also plenty of film collectors aware of their great restoration work and exclusive extras this side of the pond! So it's great news that while Hollywood studios seem to be dialling back on physical media, Arrow will join the ranks of Shout Factory, Blue Underground, Grindhouse Releasing and others, giving us hungry, rare and genre film fans what we want!

About Arrow Video:
Started as an offshoot label of Arrow Films in 2009, the label began with two cult titles: Lucio Fulci’s The House by the Cemetery (1981) and Lamberto Bava’s Macabre (1980). Arrow Video releases hark back the video store glory days when VHS covers were lurid and exciting. The Label employs top illustrative artists to create brand-new oil-painting covers featuring reversible original key art as an alternate option. The label releases definitive editions that include complete uncut versions, multiple audio tracks, copious extras, cutting edge design and informative booklets. The collection now spans more than 100 releases and includes films by a host of major auteurs from Argento to Yuzna!
