It's Going To Be A Hot Summer With Arrow Video!
This summer, Arrow Video is really bringing the goods, and we'll try to keep you all updated about what to look for.  I've already posted details for June releases Pervert! (review here), Savage Streets, and Tenebrae, as well as July's release of Brian De Palma's Obsession.  However, Arrow is not content to stand on those releases for the summer, we've got a stack of new ones to announce and detail, check out all the info below.

Tobe Hooper's The Funhouse:
The carnival is a place for fun and laughter, but not for Amy and her friends. When their childish dare to stay all night in the spooky funhouse backfires, it leaves a trail of dismembered teenagers a mile long in Tobe Hooper's classic video nasty era slasher.

Will anyone escape the clutches of the stumbling madman that stalks to sideshow? Is there no end to the carnival barkers chilling sadism? The only way to find out is ascend into the funhouse, where the games have no rules and the only prize on offer is a grisly demise.

Join us in The Funhouse. So much fun that you'll never leave...Alive!

Slasher classic Slaughter High:
When the alumni of an all-American high school make a trip to attend a class reunion, they reconnect with their pasts in ways more bloody and fatal than they could possibly imagine in the 80s slasher classic Slaughter High.

On arrival, they discover the school shuttered and in disrepair, as if the reunion were just a ruse to drag them back. Still, the old pupils decide to break in and celebrate anyway. A deadly error considering that Marty, the nerd whose teenage life they made a living hell, is lurking in the dank, dark corridors, waiting to bring fear, torment and slicing, dicing murder to each and every one of them.

John Landis' Kentucky Fried Movie:
Welcome to Kentucky Fried Movie, the Citizen Kane of bad taste, gross out, screwball movies. This is the film that birthed a thousand low rent comedies, a million playground quotes and brought the ancient mysteries of Kung Fu to the West in the awe inspiring mini-movie, A Fistful of Yen.

Hollywood legends The Zucker Brothers (Airplane, Top Secret) team up with John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, The Blues Brothers) for an adults-only comedy trip through the worlds of advertising, TV, movies and, of course... SEX!
