What’s coming soon to Arrow UK in July 2021?
James R | On 06, Jul 2021
Arrow is a streaming service curated by members of the Arrow Video team, bringing together new horror, cult classics, cutting edge cinema, international favourites and more – from Lars von Trier to Park Chan-wook, plus TV shows such as The Bridge and Gomorrah.
Arrow is barely six months old but it continues to double down on its distinct curation, bringing together heavy metal comedy, cult Westerns and the underseen debut from the director of Netflix’s Fear Street trilogy.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Arrow in July 2021:
Heavy Trip – 1st July
Turo is trying to overcome his fears by leading the most unknown heavy metal band in Finland, Impaled Rektum, to the hottest metal festival of Norway. The journey includes heavy metal, grave robbing, Viking heaven and an armed conflict between Finland and Norway.
Honeymoon – 1st July
Young newlyweds Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon where the promise of private romance awaits them. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behaviour increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods. Treadaway and Leslie give captivating leading performances as a couple that takes new love to disturbing depths. With romance slowly giving way to terror, writer/ director Leigh Janiak puts her unique stamp on this intimate chilling thriller.
Satanic Panic – 1st June
Murder goes luxe in this horror romp produced by the top tome in terror, Fangoria. From the creative pairing of renowned author Grady Hendrix (Horrorstör, My Best Friend’s Exorcism) and a cast led by Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Jerry O’Connell (Billions, Piranha 3D), Satanic Panic is a delightfully camp peek into the dastardly vice of the 1%.
Book of Monsters – 9th July
Sophie’s 18th birthday becomes a bloodbath when monsters descend upon her house and start to devour the party guests. Sophie and her friends must rally together to send their party crashers back to hell.
Irene Huss: Season 1 – 11th July
Based on the best-selling novels by Swedish writer Helene Tursten, IRENE HUSS follows the investigations of its eponymous character – played by Angela Kovacs (Hassel, Spring Tide, Wallander). Mother of two, Irene is a well-regarded Detective Inspector from the Violent Crimes Unit as well as a former champion and avid martial art practitioner. While the unit mainly operates in Gothenburg, the wide range of investigations – from gruesome murders to complex relationships – that Irene and her colleagues are covering often lead them to collaborate with their counterparts in the neighboring countries.
Meek’s Cutoff – 12th July
Settlers traveling through the Oregon desert in 1845 find themselves stranded in harsh conditions in Kelly Reichardt’s Western.
Massacre Time – 12th July
In Lucio Fulci’s (Zombie Flesh Eaters) Massacre Time (1966), Franco Nero (Django) and George Hilton (The Case of the Scorpion’s Tail) star as estranged brothers forced to band together against the powerful businessman (Nino Castelnuovo, Strip Nude for Your Killer) and his sadistic son who’ve seized control of their hometown.
Ramrod – 12th July
One of the classic Westerns of its era, Ramrod stars Veronica Lake as Connie Dickson, a headstrong cowgirl who’s plans to marry a sheep rancher are thwarted when a powerful local cattle baron, Frank Ivey (Preston Foster), and her own father (Charles Ruggles), force her fiancé to flee town. Refusing to kowtow to these powerful men, Connie inherits her ex-fiancés land and determines to run the ranch with the help of her new ramrod, reformed alcoholic Dave Nash (Joel McCrea). But Dave’s diplomatic attempts to resolve the dispute fall upon deaf ears and a bloody turf war on the open range ensues.
A Serial Killer’s Guide To Life – 16th July
Serial murder meets self-help in A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life – a darkly satirical cross between Thelma & Louise and Sightseers from the creative team behind short film This Way Out (Best Comedy, Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2013). Self-help addict Lou (Katie Brayben, Luther) leads a mundane existence, dreaming of a more fulfilling life but reluctant to make the necessary plunge into the unknown. All that changes when she meets Val (Poppy Roe, The Big Finish), an ambitious life coach with a genuine killer instinct, and finds herself embarking on a murder spree with her unhinged new mentor as they traverse the south coast of England, leaving a trail of death and destruction in their wake.
Irezumi – 19th July
Drawn from the pen of one of Japan’s foremost writers of the 20th century, Junichiro Tanizaki (A Fool’s Love, The Makioka Sisters), Irezumi is a stylish tale of desire, betrayal and revenge directed by Yasuzo Masumura (Giants and Toys, Blind Beast).
The Falling – 19th July
It’s 1969 at a strict English girls’ school where charismatic Abbie and intense and troubled Lydia are best friends. After a tragedy occurs at the school, a mysterious fainting epidemic breaks out threatening the stability of all involved.
