Here we go again, Arrow Video has unveiled their September release lineup and it's a doozy.

Fans in the US have a trio of new special editions to look forward to, while UK get one helluva box set. First of all, both North American and UK will get a brand new edition of Wes Craven's The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 and video store stalwart, The Prey. US/CAN fans only will have a chance to own Aldo Lado's classic giallo, Who Saw Her Die? for the first time on Blu-ray. The big release this month is the UK-only Mario Bava box set that includes nine of the master's classics. I know I'll be importing that one, for sure!

THE HILLS HAVE EYES (US/CAN/UK)

The hills are once again alive with the sound of screaming in Wes Craven’s hugely entertaining follow-up to his own groundbreaking 1977 The Hills Have Eyes.

A motocross team on their way to trial a new super-fuel head out across the desert lead by Rachel, who, unbeknownst to the rest of the group, is a survivor of the cannibal clan which menaced the Carter family several years before. Opting to take an ill-advised shortcut across the desert, the busload of youngsters drive straight into the path of the remnants of Rachel’s demented cannibal kin - the menacing Pluto, and a hulking, blood-hungry brute by the name of The Reaper.

Made by Wes Craven immediately prior to his smash-hit A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Hills Have Eyes Part II diverges from the grim tone of its predecessor in favour of fun action-horror thrills and spills replete with mutants, motorbikes, and - oh yes - dog flashbacks!
