Arrow Video U.S. and Arrow Academy U.S. have no less than FIVE genre/cult films on their October release schedule. These titles range from Italian horror to raucous comedy to sci-fi to drama. Like every month, they’ve got a little something for everyone! The slate is headlined by the Bruce Willis/Brad Pitt sci-fi gem 12 Monkeys, Sergio Martio’s Torso, and Jim Van Bebber’s blood-soaked 1988 cult classic, Deadbeat at Dawn.
Check out the full release schedule and details below, but first check out the trippy trailer for Deadbeat at Dawn!
