The cult movie streaming service ARROW has unveiled its scheduled collections for March 2022. Here’s what you can find if you sign up!

March 1 – Nightmares Come At Night: The Jess Franco Collection

Jesús “Jess” Franco Manera was a Spanish filmmaker and actor known for low-budget B-movies. ARROW’s collection will contain the following works by Franco: Eugenie De Sade, Nightmares Come at Night, Oasis of the Zombies, The Awful Dr. Orloff, and The Sadistic Baron von Klaus. With titles like those, you can make a safe guess as to what’s in store. Zombies, awful Doctors, sadistic barons, oh my!

March 7 – Vinegar Syndrome Collection Vol 2

Vinegar Syndrome, a cult film preservation and distribution company, offers us Blood Beat, Bloody Sect, Deadline, Hollywood Horror House, Night Owl, Star Time, The Corruption of Chris Miller, Zombie 5: Killing Birds. There’s a solid chance you haven’t seen every one of these films, but it definitely sounds like there are plenty of horror and thriller stories in the mix.

March 11 – All In Your Head

This appears to be a collection of psychological thrillers/horror films, including Dream Demon, Knocking, Kotoko, Rude Awakening, and Threshold. As with the other entries, it’s safe to say you probably have not seen every one of these. It is very likely that the Rude Awakening movie in this lineup is not the one starring Cheech Marin and Eric Roberts (though, to be honest, that movie might be a bit underrated in its own regard).

ARROW has added a Fritz Lang Collection for March

March 14th-21st – Master of Darkness: The Fritz Lang Collection / Dead Silent

One of cinema’s pioneers and an early master of the form, Fritz Lang gave us the iconic Metropolis. This silent sci-fi thriller can still captivate audiences today, and certainly has a valid place in ARROW’s lineup. Also available will be Dr. Mabuse the Gambler, a silent classic about a criminal hypnotist mastermind that spawned some sequels, including one in 1960. Additionally, on the 21st of March, the silent but deadly Nosferatu will emerge from the darkness to creep out viewers, fangs and all. You will also be able to see The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

Subscriptions to ARROW are available for $4.99 monthly or $49.99 yearly. New subscribers can start a 30-day free trial. Their website assures us: “You can watch ARROW via Roku, Fire TV, Xbox, Android TV, Apple TV, Samsung TVs (US only) iOS and Android devices and right here on the web.”
