Bride Of Re-Animator

Arrow Films have released a 3 disc limited edition set of Brian Yuzna’s Bride Of Re-Animator as a dual-format edition containing the DVD and blu-ray discs. The big point of interest is that it is a brand new 2K restoration.

On Arrow Video’s Facebook website, it was confirmed that 5000 copies were produced both in the UK and the US. The big attraction of this limited edition set is the third disc which contains the R-rated version.

Trapped – The Complete Series One

Arrow Films are releasing the complete first series (ie “season”) of the Icelandic television drama Trapped on either a four disc DVD set or a three disc blu ray set as a part of their Nordic Noir collection.

As a ferry carrying 300 passengers from Denmark pulls into an Icelandic town’s small port, heavy snow begins to fall. The ferry can’t leave until the storm passes and the main road into town is impassable. A mutilated and dismembered body washes on the shore, an unidentifiable man murdered only hours ago. The local police chief, Andri Olafssun, whose personal life is in shatters, realises a killer has descended into his town. As word spreads, order disintegrates into chaos as the ferry’s passengers and the town’s residents realise they are all possible suspects and that a killer is trapped among them.
