Arrow Video has announced the June 2022 lineup of its new subscription-based Arrow platform, available to subscribers in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland.
A highlight of the June 2022 lineup is the psychological chiller The Righteous, an award-winning standout on the genre festival circuit, available June 10 in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland.
The first feature from director-actor-writer Mark O’Brien is a dark chiller about a burdened man who feels the wrath of a vengeful God, after he and his wife are visited by a mysterious stranger. The film stars O’Brien, Henry Czerny and Mimi Kuzyk.
The Righteous had its World Premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in 2021, winning the Cheval Noir and Silver Award, and has since gone on to win a Bloodie at the 2021 Blood in the Snow Film Festival, and the Grimmfest Award at the 2021 Grimmfest.
The June slate kicks off June 1 with all six films from Charles Band’s “The Trancers Collection,” from the original 1984 Trancers to 2002’s Trancers 6. Also available on that date is “The Art of Cult,” featuring Children of the Corn, The Hills Have Eyes, The Stylist, and Ringu, as well as Hell High, a twisted tale of delinquency starring Christopher Cousins and Christopher Stryker.
On June 6 comes “The Vinegar Syndrome Collection,” with Avenging Angel, The Passing, Star Time and Sweet Sugar.
The Righteous is part of Arrow’s June 10 “Season: I Think You Should Leave,” which also includes The Bloodhound, Two Thousand Maniacs, and Shiver of the Vampire. Also available that day is Viy, the first horror film ever produced in the Soviet Union.
On June 13 comes the 1989 cult slasher The Intruder, featuring early appearances by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, followed three days later by “You Really Should Have Seen It Coming,” featuring the films Dark August, The Premonition, Death Has Blue Eyes and Psychic Killer.
