Each film on this list holds a special place in my heart for its distinctiveness, originality, and the way it challenges conventional norms.
 
Each film on this list represents a distinct facet of my cinematic sensibility, reflecting my love for bold, daring storytelling and my fascination with the limitless possibilities of the medium. These films have left an indelible mark on me as a filmmaker, inspiring me to push boundaries and explore new creative horizons in my own work."

On June 21, go back to the 1980s with a pair of films from Nico Mastorakis.
 
The Time Traveller (1984, UK/IRE/US/CA): Mastorakis shows a more thoughtful side in The Time Traveller, where the widow (Adrienne Barbeau, The Fog) of an astronaut and her young son come across a mysterious man (Kier Dullea, 2001: A Space Odyssey) with uncanny powers on a beach in Greece.
 
Sky High (1985, UK/IRE/US/CA): The wacky Sky High sees three American jocks on holiday in Greece being handed a tape by a mysterious figure, who begs them to not let it fall into the wrong hands before being shot by an unseen assassin.
 
 
 
On June 21, bolt the doors, lock the windows and open up ARROW to watch Home Invaders (UK/US/CA/IRE).
 
Guaranteed to gross you out and featuring the sleaziest and skeeziest films on ARROW, this one is bound to give you The Ick.
 
Titles Include: Momma, Don't Go, Mantrap. Straw Dogs: The Final Cut, Kolobos.
 
 
June 28 continues ARROW's ode to Mastorakis with two more of his 80s comedies.
 
Terminal Exposure (1987, UK/IRE/US/CA): Featuring an early score from the great Hans Zimmer, Terminal Exposure focuses on two carefree beach photographers, who accidentally photograph a murder and immediately set after the assassin: a tall, gorgeous blonde with a rose tattoo on her behind.
 
Glitch! (1988, UK/IRE/US/CA): Glitch! sees two bumbling burglars whose attempt to throw the house party of the century in the luxury home of a Hollywood producer is foiled by a group of mobsters determined to collect what the producer owes them - no matter what.
 
 
 
As summer heads towards its peak, the June lineup comes to a close the only way an ARROW lineup can, with a heavy body count.
 
Slashers (UK/US/CA/IRE): Kick back and flick through ARROW's Slashers section and discover all manner of new killers stalking and murdering an endless supply of hapless victims who had it coming in a range of titles you'll know, you may never have heard of, or vaguely remember seeing just out of reach in the video store. From classics to new spins to deep cuts, they're all here in Slashers.
 
Titles Include: The Mutilator, Girls Nite Out, The Prey.
 
CRAZEDKILLERS_wide.png
