Here’s what’s on offer on Arrow this August

Key highlights this AUGUST on the essential, alternative streaming service ARROW include an extraordinary, award-winning pulpy Indonesian actioner, a superb cult shocker about a hard-partying, blood-craving L.A. artist, a season of B-movie mayhem, crazed animals, giallo classics, French cult horror, and much more…

August starts with a red-hot blast of VENGEANCE IS MINE, ALL OTHERS PAY CASH, from acclaimed Indonesian director Edwin (Postcards from the Zoo) and based on the novel by Eka Kurniawan. Winner of the Golden Leopard at the 2021 Locarno Film Festival, this is a pulpy, energetic throwback to 80s South East Asian action and coming-of-age cinema about a young man who can’t get it up. With echoes of early Takashi Miike, VENGEANCE IS MINE, ALL OTHERS PAY CASH is a wild and unexpectedly poignant meditation on toxic masculinity and a culture steeped in violence from one of Indonesia’s most exciting directorial voices… and you can see it first and furious on ARROW.

Also in August, ARROW present director Joe Begos’ (The Mind’s Eye) third feature, BLISSa blood-drenched masterpiece that has drawn comparisons to the films of Gaspar Noé and Abel Ferrara. Struggling through a seemingly endless creative rut, hard-partying and Los-Angeles-based artist Dezzy Donahue (Dora Madison, Friday Night Lights) can’t stop the resulting bad streak of problems, including unpaid rent and professional stagnation. In an effort to combat her tough luck, Dezzy throws caution to the wind, indulges in heavy drugs and rages her nights away. Gradually, though, the party starts to end, and in its place, Dezzy finds herself thirsting for blood and suffering from terrifying visions. 

Seasons in August include The Subspecies Collection, ARROW’s latest film series from Charles Band and Full Moon Studios. This epic vampiric five-film collection is soaked in blood, packed full of practical effects and features the four-film Subspecies series, as well as the spin-off, Vampire JournalsTooth and Claw, where you’ll meet the animals of the ARROW menagerie, in a curated season full of all of the critters that you’d least like to meet vying for your attention and probably the meat off of your bones too, including rampant apes, gnawing rats, flapping blood-sucking bats, slithering constricting snakes, brutal bears, hungry sharks, caustic jellyfish, and killer crocs; and FIIIGHT!, featuring action-packed films showcasing the best scraps on ARROW, inspired by the brilliant and bruising beatdowns in VENGEANCE IS MINE, ALL OTHERS PAY CASH, with titles includingVersus, The Sword and the Claw, and Sister Street Fighter.

ALSO SHOWING: Powerful French classics EYES WITHOUT A FACE and LA HAINE, Sherilyn Fenn in  the sultry horror fantasy MERIDIAN,  disturbing Australian serial killer thriller HOUNDS OF LOVEVinegar Syndrome Selects, and much more…
