Key highlights this August on the essential, alternative streaming service ARROW include the exclusive premiere of brilliantly inventive comedy gem debut MAN UNDER TABLE, Elliot Page facing the aftermath of a virus in THE CURED, Justin Kurtzel’s devastating masterpiece THE SNOWTOWN MURDERS, the classic music documentary on genius singer/songwriter DANIEL JOHNSON, Korean ghost stories, Japanese erotic horror, drug dealers onscreen, Folk Horror classics, a season of subterranean beasties, B-movie mayhem, and so much more...
The feature debut from writer/director Noel David Taylor, MAN UNDER TABLE is a wildly inventive and original fantasy comedy, premiering exclusively on ARROW. Set against the backdrop of a crumbling dystopian Los Angeles, it pushes a spotlight onto the endlessly bizarre world of the Hollywood movie industry where things are never easy, dreams are crushed, content is king, and you’ll need to wear a gasmask to cope with the unnamed toxins in the polluted green.
The stylishly shot, and genuinely scary Korean chiller A TALE OF TWO SISTERS, directed by Kim Jee-woon (A Bittersweet Life, I Saw The Devil), about dark secrets in a family's past, is a devastating mix of style, scares and emotive storytelling that blurs the boundaries between genres and has had a profound influence on a new generation of filmmakers.
TV highlights for August include Season 2 of the superlative IRENE HUSS, based on the acclaimed books by Swedish author Helene Tursten, featuring six more feature-length episodes following a female police investigator in Gothenburg played by Angela Kovacs (Spring Tide, Wallander) and HASSEL, starring the amazing Ola Rapace (Skyfall) as a street smart detective who finds himself knee deep in corruption.
ALSO SHOWING: THE RICK SLOANE COLLECTION VOL 1, the grotesque and macabre BLIND BEAST, psychological thriller FINAL GIRL, women in prison, women on the run and out of control female cops, as well as sex-starved demons, cult hit SUTURE and more...

FROM AUGUST 2nd:
BAN THIS SICK FILTH PRESENTS: MORAL OUTRAGE - There really is no end to your depravity, is there? Well, it's good to see you returning to us so soon nonetheless. Now sit down, back nice and straight, and prepare yourself for more sinful and sick filth from the most warped and depraved minds. 'Moral Outrage' features disgusting films that star scream queens and former porn stars and contain dollops of dirty heavy metal and lashings of sadistic sexploitation. Documentaries are also abounding, in fact, there are some particular favourites of mine which record the wonderful attempts in the UK to ban heinous horror video cassettes. Such a shame you all never learn.
Titles include: Vice Academy,Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship and Videotape, Orgies of Edo, Underwater Love

No body, theme or subject matter is left viciously unexplored by directors such as Lars von Trier, Abel Ferrara, Takashi Miike and Jörg Buttgereit in this collection of films that will leave you reeling and thinking for hours afterwards. ARROW Extreme is trigger warning city, population: all the coolest and most controversial creators on the planet.

GOING UNDERGROUND - You may be tempted to delve beneath the earth in search of cooler temperatures this summer, but beware what lurks in the lonely places the daylight doesn't reach.
