On February 19: ARROW takes subscribers Back Inside the Mind of Coffin Joe: Part Two (UK/IRE/US/CAN).

Cultural icon, anti-establishment statement, sadistic lord of carnival horror! With his iconic long fingernails, top hat and cape, Zé do Caixão (Coffin Joe) was the creation of Brazilian filmmaker José Mojica Marins, who wrote, directed and starred in a series of outrageous movies from 1964 to 2008.

The rarely-seen When the Gods Fall Asleep continues the series' blackly comic trajectory as our messianic cult figure sets out to right wrongs, expose corruption and end social unrest. The Strange Hostel of Naked Pleasures brings Zé do Caixão back to the screen as the proprietor of an isolated guest house where, on a dark and stormy night, an eclectic group of strangers seek shelter.

In Hellish Flesh, Dr George Medeiros is a brilliant scientist, but a neglectful husband whose wife takes a lover and plans to murder George for his fortune, but the doctor is only disfigured and returns with a plan for revenge! Meanwhile, in Hallucinations of a Deranged Mind, the colleagues of a psychiatric doctor driven to insanity by nightmare visions of Zé do Caixão enlist the character’s creator, José Mojica Marins, to convince the patient that Zé does not exist - but all is not as it seems!

Finally, in Embodiment of Evil, Marins returns to the role that made his name one last time, as Zé do Caixão emerges onto the streets of São Paulo in 2008, haunted by ghostly visions and the spirits of past victims, and still in pursuit of the woman who can give him the perfect child.

Newly restored from the best available elements and packed with new and archival extras, Back Inside the Mind of Coffin Joe is a love letter to one of the great iconoclasts of horror, who forged his films in the face of military dictatorship and religious censorship to become Brazil’s national Boogeyman.

Titles Include: Embodiment of Evil, Hellish Flesh, Hallucinations of a Deranged Mind.


ARROW continues its ode to Brazilian cinema with Butcher Billy Selects ((UK/ IRE/ US/CA).

Brazilian illustrator Billy Butcher - renowned for his art pieces that blend pop art with vintage comic book styles to stupendous effect - has taken his pick of the formidable ARROW catalogue, and chosen a selection of horrors that will thrill, astound and excite - much like his work.

Titles Include: Hellraiser, Deep Red, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark.


ARROW closes out the month the only possible way: with bloodsoaked battles! On February 23, This Means War (UK/ IRE/ US/CA)

Featuring incredible, brutal, sometimes harrowing – and even sometimes full of crazy creatures – Cult films, ARROW goes to war with a collection of battle-hardened movies so good you’ll be left shell-shocked.

Titles Include: JSA, The Annihilators, Warning From Space.
