On March 15th, Arrow is inviting yet another special guest to make some selections for its audience. From the mind behind some incredible films such as Doghouse, Evil Aliens, and Razor Blade Smile Jake West has been chosen for a special segment Jake West Selects. "Putting together this list of my recommended ARROW favorites has been a bloody delight…. but also presented me with a massive dilemma. I haven’t felt such indecision to pick since the heady and good old ‘nasty’ days of browsing lurid VHS video covers In a proper independent video shop! And now I find myself back in a beautifully arcane store with a superlative horror and cult film section…how the hell do I pick favorites out of a selection this great? So, after hours of browsing the endless treats on offer, I’ve somehow managed to boil it down. So if you also aren’t quite sure what to pick, then here’s my cross-section recommendations of stone-cold classics; video nasty gory mayhem: retro thrills and some bizarre mind-expanding cult delights that range from brutal to hilarious, and classy to trashy. I love ‘em all! So if you’re looking for guidance or just want to take a chance you really can’t go wrong with any of these..." With selections such as The Red Queen Kills 7 Times and Switchblade Sisters, you don't want to miss a peek into the mind of Jake West.
