[NEWS] ARROW VIDEO LAUNCHES STREAMING SERVICE IN NORTH AMERICA
There are a lot of options in streaming services right now. From your Amazon Prime to your Netflix, we have many options to choose from within the streaming world, but a lot of them don’t have what we’re looking for, especially when it comes to horror. Tubi has excellent hidden gems, and Shudder does the hardest job acquiring and streaming horror that I’ve ever seen. However, there was one streaming service that I longed to get, and it’s finally coming to North America.
Arrow Video recently announced that they will be expanding their streaming services to North America! They already have a subscription service for fans in the UK, so the move to North America is exciting and long overdue! Launching October 1st, the subscription-based platform will be available on all platforms, including Roku, Amazon Prime, iOS, and Android. Arrow will be offering those who want the service (and you know you do) $4.99 a month or $49.99 for an annual subscription.
They’re even coming out with an epic lineup to start the new journey with classics like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Deeper You Dig, and from one of my favorite filmmakers, Hershell Gordan Lewis’ collection The Herschell Gordon Lewis Feast.
Based in the UK, Arrow Video is an independent distributor of classic horror, art, cult, and classic films. You can easily compare them to The Criterion Collection and Blue Underground. The lineup of movies in their roster is incredible. Alice, Sweet Alice, The Hills Have Eyes, She-Devils on Wheels, Blood and Black Lace, and Re-Animator is just a few of the DVDs and Blu-Rays they have to offer.
If you’re interested in checking out the lineup and how to subscribe to the service, check out the press release below for all the nitty-gritty details that will be on the new streaming service!

The Deeper You Dig, the latest feature written, directed by and starring filmmaking family the Adams Family (Knuckle Jack, Rumblestrips), described as “a force to be reckoned with” (Dread Central), leads the lineup of ARROW’s launch, joined by The Adams Family’s The Hatred, Tobe Hooper’s groundbreaking classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Crumbs (the debut feature of Jesus Shows You the Way to the Highway‘s Miguel Llansó), 1989’s Cold Light of Day and the Swedish nightmare Videoman.

Bogus tarot card reader Ivy (Toby Poser) and her teenage daughter Echo (Zelda Adams) are an unconventional but loving mother/daughter team. But when reclusive Kurt (John Adams) moves in down the road, a tragic accident results in Echo’s murder, causing three lives to collide in mysterious and wicked ways. Kurt believes he can hide his secret beneath the earth – but Echo, refusing to accept death, burrows into his head until he can feel her in his bones. As she haunts his every move, trying to reach her mother from beyond, Ivy must dig deep to see the signs and prove that love won’t stay buried.
