ARROW’s April Lineup Includes Seasons Featuring The Living Dead and Mad Scientists

Arrow Video’s subscription-based ARROW platform kicks off its April lineup today. This month’s film lineup includes the living dead, gangsters, mad scientists, and odes to directors Sam Peckinpah and Peter Bogdanovich.

Starting today, subscribers can enjoy the first of the April Seasons with Benson and Moorhead Selects. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, the celebrated directorial duo behind indie cult favorites “Spring,” “The Endless,” and most recently, “Something in the Dirt” and Disney’s “Moon Knight,” have curated a collection of their favorite films on ARROW. Titles in the collection include “Society,” “Donnie Darko,” and “Audition.”

On April 7, ARROW will debut two more documentaries from Paul Joyce with “Sam Peckinpah: Man of Iron” and “Pieces of Time: Bogdanovich on the Movies.” The first documentary seeks to understand the enigmatic and controversial Sam Peckinpah, whose violent films such as “The Wild Bunch” and “Straw Dogs” had a telling effect on the cinema of the 1970s and 80s. Those who knew and worked with him, including actor James Coburn, actress Ali MacGraw, his associate Katherine Haber, his cousin Bob Peckinpah, and several screenwriters and producers, examine his life in an attempt to separate the man from the persona.

“Pieces of Time: Bogdanovich on the Movies” is a brutally honest eye-opening industry insider documentary that lifts the lid on tinsel town. Joyce employs his signature unfettered access to capture director Peter Bogdanovich in imperious and candid form. The celebrated and gossiped-about director spills all regarding the successes, failures, and scandals he has gone through during his rollercoaster ride of a movie-making career, dropping truth bombs and spot-on impressions of Orson Welles and Alfred Hitchcock as he goes.

April 7 will also mark the debut of a new Season with “The Dead Walk!” “The Dead Walk!” is a veritable zombie horde of films from everybody from Lucio Fulci to Takashi Miike and George A. Romero to Jean Rollin. The collection features titles like “Zombie Lake,” “Horror Express,” and “Zombies for Sale.”

On April 17, ARROW will debut Gala Avary Selects, a special selection of films curated by Gala Avary from The Video Archives Podcast. Titles in the collection include “The Slayer, “Switchblade Sisters,” and “Mill of the Stone Women.”

On April 21, Sister Filth returns with a new Season for subscribers, “Ban This Sick Filth: The Return.” This unique collection features some of ARROW’s sauciest, dirtiest, sleaziest, and most controversial content yet, and includes titles like “Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine,” “Angel,” and “Sweet Trash.”

ARROW will round out the month on April 28 with a Season of science and insanity with “It’s Alive! The Mad Scientists Collection.” Featuring the weirdest and wildest experiments from the most deranged physicists, It’s Alive!: The Mad Scientists Collection sees definitively deluded doctors unleashing their most terrifying creations on… YOU! Titles in the collection include “The Devil Bat,” “The Invisible Man vs The Human Fly,” and “The Curious Dr. Humpp.”

April will also include non-genre films “Heart of the Dragon,” starring Jackie Chan, “No Escape,” starring Ray Liotta, and “The Grand Tour” starring Jeff Daniels.
