Graveyard Of Honor (2002)

Tokyo, the turn of the millennium. Less a direct remake of Fukasku’s film than a radical reimagining of the same overarching premise, Miike’s film captures both the hedonism and nihilism of the modern Japanese crime scene in deliriously stylish fashion, resulting in a fascinating companion piece to the original that nonetheless stands as its own entity.

Streaming now on the Arrow Video Channel in the UK & US.

Return Of The Killer Tomatoes

THE VEGETABLES OF DOOM! The killer tomatoes are back! But this time around, they’re going to have to contend with late ’80s George Clooney and his wicked mullet… Is it a fruit? Is it a vegetable? Nope, it’s Return of the Killer Tomatoes!

Ten years on from the Great Tomato War, mankind lives in fear of another uprising by the waxy red menace. Meanwhile, Professor Gangreen – played with gusto by the great John Astin from TV’s The Addams Family – sets out to pursue his own evil ends by creating a burgeoning army of tomato militia men (who, somewhat conveniently, look just like regular men).

Another restored ‘classic’ for Arrow Video and their companion channel.

GVFilm are experts at creating modern trailers for digital catalogue films that use up to date editing techniques but retain the flavour of the original film.

Digital sales are more important than ever, and consumers can be turned off by an out-of -context clip. Short, sharp trailers for digital catalogue can boost the visibillity of titles across a storefront and double as PR content across social channels.

The Case Of The Scorpion’s Tail

Original trailer for the Arrow Video Channel and Digital relase of the jet setting giallo classic. The second giallo by genre master Sergio Martino (Torso, The Suspicious Death of a Minor), The Case of the Scorpion’s Tail combines stunning views of Athens and the Greek coastline with brutal bursts of violence, a typically tangled script by Ernesto Gastaldi (Death Walks on High Heels), and a cast overflowing with Euro cult talent, including Alberto de Mendoza (A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin), Janine Reynaud (Jess Franco’s Succubus) and Luigi Pistilli (A Bay of Blood).

Children Of The Corn

Official trailer for the Arrow Video Channel release of the classic ‘Children Of The Corn’.
Featuring stellar performances from Linda Hamilton (Terminator) and Peter Horton (thirtysomething) and based on a short story by Stephen King, The Children of the Corn is a horror classic that has spawned multiple sequels and imitators, but none as harrowing as this masterpiece of horror.

Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence

We were proud to be asked by our friends at Arrow Video to craft a new trailer for the classic film. Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence for its restored release on the Arrow Academy label. We worked hard to give the trailer a fresh take, but with a classic feel, and were lucky to be given permission by Ryuichi Sakamoto to use his score in our new 5.1 mix and have the edit signed off by the film’s producer Jeremy Thomas.

David Bowie stars in Nagisa Oshima’s 1983 Palme d’Or-nominated portrait of resilience, pride, friendship and obsession among four very different men confined in the stifling jungle heat of a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in Java during World War II.

Produced by Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor, The Sheltering Sky), it was the first English-language film by Oshima (Death by Hanging, In the Realm of the Senses, Gohatto), a leading light of Japanese New Wave cinema, and provided breakthrough big-screen roles for comedian Takeshi Kitano and musician Ryuichi Sakamoto, who also composed the film’s hauntingly memorable BAFTA-winning score. This powerful wartime drama was adapted from Laurens van der Post’s autobiographical novel ‘The Seed and the Sower’ (1963) by screenwriter Paul Mayersberg (The Man Who Fell to Earth).

The trailer was premiered on The Hollywood News site.
