The new ARROW platform (from the folks behind Arrow Video) will treat genre fans to a diverse selection of exploitation and horror in November.

Consumers of physical media should have at least a couple offerings from Arrow Video on their shelves. The boutique label, which specializes in (but is not limited to) horror fare, is expanding its reach to its own app-based streaming service, known simply as ARROW.

Anticipating the sugar crash and lingering horror hangover from Halloween, ARROW is taking an interesting approach with its November programming, which will include, per the press release, “the launch of Ban This Sick Filth!, a rotating catalog highlighting some of the most controversial films ever made.”

Not exclusively horror, the lineup will include exploitation, independent, and X-rated titles. Here’s the short and sweet of what’s playing throughout the month:

November 2 will kick things off with The El Duce Tapes, the new X-rated music documentary about the self-styled “King of Sleaze,” The Essential Giallo Collection, The Female Prisoner Scorpion Collection, and He Came From the Swamp: The William Grefé Collection (including Sting of Death, Death Curse of Tartu, and Mako: Jaws of Death).

November 9 will be dedicated to the freewheeling spirit of youthful rebellion, with the Rebel Yell program, including Teenage Yakuza and Jim VanBebber‘s low-budget classic Deadbeat at Dawn, among others.

On November 13, ARROW will present some curated favorites from another boutique label, the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA). Titles include Lake of Dracula, Pit Stop, and The Wizard of Gore. Other AGFA offerings on the roster: the Tom Savini-starring Effects, the true-crime cash-in The Zodiac Killer, Ed Wood’s Take it Out in Trade, Lady Street Fighter and more. If that’s not enough, the Asia Extreme program will highlight some must-see films out of East Asia.

Additionally, November 13 will honor Renegade Women with offerings like Sarah Jacobson’s I Was a Teenage Serial Killer, A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life, George Romero‘s 1972 sleeper Season of the Witch, She-Devils on Wheels, The Witch Who Came from the Sea, and Blind Woman’s Curse.

If that’s not enough, the 13th will also give rise to Effed Up Families – the crux of many a horror script – bringing together the cannibal warmth of Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes, Toys Are Not For Children, Why Don’t You Just Die!, and the gore-filled Thanksgiving staple Blood Rage, among others.

If these selections don’t stuff your gullet full of diverse genre goodness, nothing will. Now pass the cranberry sauce…
