Arrow Video - November, 2020

From The Arrow Video Press Release

2020 has felt like it’s been two decades too long already, but it’s finally winding down with just two months remaining. Arrow plans to continue to make the best of it by releasing more top-rate Blu-rays of the finest quality. November’s lineup includes four new titles, and every last one is a must-own.

Lake Michigan Monster comes to Blu-ray on November 3. This low-budget debut from director Ryland Brickson Cole Tews is a love letter to the sci-fi creature features of the ’50s. This story about an eccentric ship captain determined to tame the beast that slew his father was shot on 16mm black-and-white film and is the stuff of Saturday matinees. Film Threat compared it to a Halloween episode of Spongebob Squarepants on drugs and said it “would make Ed Wood proud.” This Arrow release is loaded with special features including two commentaries, multiple interviews, and more.

Press Release (Cont.)

On November 10Sogo Ishii‘s punk-rock sci-fi musical, Burst City, breaks onto the scene. Created primarily as a vehicle to showcase Japan’s most prominent punk acts at the top, Burst City perfectly captures the punk rock scene of the ’70s and ’80s Japan. This beloved classic heads home with a brand-new audio commentary track, new interviews, and more.

Shockingly still relevant is 1972’s Silent Running. Director Douglas Trumbull‘s post-apocalyptic tale about plant life on Earth becoming extinct releases on November 17. Starring Bruce DernSilent Running was hailed by the Washington Post as a “new classic of the genre,” and received 4 out of 4 stars from famed critic Roger EbertSilent Running comes with a new 2K transfer from the original camera negative and approved by Trumbull.

The month’s final release is He Came from the Swamp: The William Grefe Collection. Renegade filmmaker William “Wild Bill” Grefe has bravely explored the dark depths of the Florida everglades in a way few filmmakers have. This 4-disc set includes seven different films from the independent director, all of which have been restored using the best remaining film elements. With the holidays right around the corner, this box set makes the perfect gift for both Grefe fans and just those that support US independent filmmaking.

Very cool!
