FanExpo 2016: Arrow Video Now Available in Canada

This may be old news to some of you but I was speaking to someone from Unobstructed View (formerly Video Services Corp.) at the FanExpo Toronto today and she was telling me that they now have an exclusive Canadian partnership with Arrow Films to release the popular UK company’s staggering film collection on DVD and Blu-ray.

Arrow Films is a known UK distributor of classic, horror, and cult films on Blu-ray and DVD via their successful Arrow Video brand. Unobstructed View is a leading independent all-platform distributor in Canada and the US with existing output deals with Magnolia Pictures, Kino Lorber, Film Movement and Synapse Films.

“We are excited to be partnering with Unobstructed View in Canada to launch our premium home entertainment product,” says Arrow Films CEO Alex Agran. “They are the perfect partner for us and have a great blend of passion and experience to work with retailers and customers alike on our unique product offering. Since our launch in the US 15 months ago, we have had a sensational response to our product as well as to our brand Arrow Video – which I am confident we can replicate in Canada. As for product – it’s our best slate ever, stay tuned for the first announcement!”
“Arrow Films’ product fits perfectly into our catalogue and we continue to believe in home entertainment as a viable platform for film,” declared Unobstructed View Fearless Leader Jonathan Gross. “Their high-quality product and reputation are the choice of consumers looking for collectibles.”

Some of the top-selling releases covered in the deal include American Horror Project, The Mutilator and The Beast. Upcoming 2016 films feature The Swinging Cheerleaders, The Bloodstained Butterfly and Microwave Massacre.

The deal was negotiated between Alex Agran for Arrow Films and Jonathan Gross for Unobstructed View.

First Trailer for Maze Runner: The Death Cure

I remember quite enjoying the first Maze Runner but I never got around to watching The Scorch Trials; this latest entry in the series actually looks like it might be pretty decent so I may have to give them both a watch before ...

International Trailer for The Commuter

This is actually a better trailer than the first one… right up until the crappy CG finale which looks like the climax of the film too. So now we don’t need to bother watching it when it comes out. Plot: In the midst...
