ARROW’s July 2024 Lineup Includes a Selection of Films Curated by Mick Garris

Arrow Video has announced its July 2024 lineup for its subscription-based ARROW platform, and they’re kicking things off with Mick Garris Selects, a Season of titles from the mind of filmmaker and author Mick Garris, best known for his Stephen King adaptations and creating the “Masters Of Horror” television series.

“I was flattered to be asked by my friends at Arrow to recommend some of their titles that I particularly enjoy. The world of cult video is a deep and expansive one, and the Arrow catalog is filled with gems, wonders of a cockeyed world of cinema that much of the world believes is of the gutter variety. But these movies are imaginative, propulsive, unafraid to travel where the mainstream might fear to tread. Some of these are more unhinged than others, but they all display filmmakers working on films that only they could create. These are distinctive visions, unfiltered by studio notes and corporate influences.”

Mick Garris Selects arrives on the platform today, July 1, and includes titles like “Dark Water,” “Ringu,” and “Audition.”

On July 5, head off for a summer trip in style with First Class Fear. Plane? Train? Automobile? No form of transport is safe on ARROW, but whichever method of killer conveyance you choose, ARROW guarantees a great seat in First Class Fear! Titles in this collection include “The Hermit,” “Bloodstone,” and “Death Has Blue Eyes.”

On July 8, ARROW will premiere “Loop Track.” Writer-director and actor Tom Sainsbury, known for his comedic flair in such works as “Wellington Paranormal” and “Guns Akimbo,” shows his hidden passion for thrillers and human drama with “Loop Track,” his latest collaboration with Chillbox Creative, which promises an electrifying journey into the unknown.

Highly anxious Ian Thompson (Sainsbury) sets off on a solo trek in the New Zealand bush for some respite from the stress of everyday life. His plans for uninterrupted solitude are scuppered; however, his paranoia is only exacerbated when he encounters Nicky (Hayden J Weal) and other hikers. As Ian’s grip on reality weakens, he becomes convinced they are being followed. Miles from civilization, their journey turns into a fight for survival as Ian’s fears manifest into a surreal battle against an unseen threat lurking in the wilderness. Is it all just in his head? Or is someone, or something, really out there?

On July 12, ARROW unleashes a gruesome gaggle of Little Monsters, a collection of films featuring little (and not so little) monsters! Titles include “Meat Friend,” “Gwilliam’s Tips for Tricks and Treats,” and “100 Monsters.”

On July 19, get a second dose of Selects, this batch coming from “Loop Track” writer-director Thomas Sainsbury, with Thomas Sainsbury Selects. “I’m absolutely thrilled to do an edition of ARROW selections. I really adore these films and want the world to cherish them too. Some of them have huge ideas, some of them are great character studies and some of them are all out zany. And I reckon we could all do with some more zaniness in our lives. I hope you enjoy!” Titles include “Eros + Massacre,” “Vengeance is Mine,” and “Khrustalyov My Car!”

Also, on July 19, enjoy a trio of genre shorts fresh off the festival circuit to their new home on ARROW:

  • “Eric”: Joshua finally gets to meet Eric, the beloved dog of a girl he’s been dating. As the evening evolves, Josh becomes suspicious that Eric isn’t your typical house pet.
  • “I Know What You Need”: It’s 1976, and popular college co-ed Elizabeth meets an unusual boy, Edward, who knows what she needs. But who is Edward really, and what secrets is he hiding? It’s a love story, but a Stephen King love story, so things aren’t always what they seem. Elizabeth doesn’t know what she wants, but Edward knows what she needs.
  • “Earworm”: A rip-roaring film about two knuckleheads facing off against a gnarly tape cassette-dwelling worm that really wants inside their ear holes.

On July 22, enjoy another dose of Nico Mastorakis with ARROW’s curation of two more of his classics:

  • “Ninja Academy”: Take a martial arts school, throw in a snotty rich kid, a clumsy geek, a paranoid survivalist, two beach joggers, a cool secret agent, and a mime, and you get “Ninja Academy,” a madcap karate comedy like no other starring Gerald Okamura (“Big Trouble in Little China”).
  • “The Naked Truth”: Mastorakis pays homage to a certain Billy Wilder film when two friends decide to pass as women and pose as makeup artists for a local beauty pageant to elude a vicious mafia boss. It seems like the perfect cover until the mafioso gets the hots for one of them!

On July 26, get ready for The ARROW Olympics! Test your mettle in an international athletics competition where the difference between winning and losing is quite literally life and death. Will you get a bronze in beheading? Can you manage a silver in sprinting from a slasher? Got what it takes to get a gold in gore? Find out in The ARROW Olympics. Titles include “Bad Acid,” “Why Don’t You Just Die!,” and “Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji.”
