ARROW Announces October SVOD Lineup, Leading With Micro-Budget Horror DEMENTER & TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE SHOCKING TRUTH
Arrow Video is excited to announce the October 2021 lineup of their new subscription-based ARROW platform, available to subscribers in the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland.
The October lineup leads with the ARROW release of Chad Kinkle’s sophomore feature Dementer, available to subscribers in the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland. Raw and unsettling, Dementer is a brave and unflinching story of lives lived on the fringes of society, and a battle with demons inside and out.
Shot on real locations with many non-actors playing versions of themselves – including Kinkle’s real life sister Stephanie – Dementer is a deeply personal genre film with an emotional punch that lingers long after the credits have rolled. The film will debut on ARROW October 1.
|ARROW Stories will be home to a number of exclusive extras for Dementer, including several audio commentaries with director Chad Crawford Kinkle and the cast, The Making of Dementer, a brand-new in-depth look behind the scenes of how and why the film was made and In the Words of Larry, a new interview with actor Larry Fessenden discussing his role in Dementer and what drew him to the project.|
Ahead of the ARROW bow of his latest film, Kinkle shared, “The idea for Dementer came from my desire to build a horror film around my sister Stephanie, who has Down syndrome. I wanted to go through this journey with her and see what type of experience it would be like to create a film like this and also to see what kind of film it would make.”
|October 1 will see the arrival of Dementer (UK/US/CA/IRE), Patrick (US/CA), Ban the Sadist Videos (UK/US/CA/IRE), Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Shocking Truth (UK/US/CA/IRE), The Changeling (US/CA), Tales of the Uncanny (US/CA), Phil Tippett: Mad Dreams and Monsters (US/CA), The Frankenstein Complex (US/CA), and The Initiation (US).|

LEVERKUSEN 2010, The Latest CD/DVD Release In The Continuing Series Of Classic Allan Holdsworth Live Recordings, Due November 5 From Manifesto Records
LEVERKUSEN 2010, the fifth and latest release in the continuing series of classic live recordings by Allan Holdsworth, is due November 5 from Manifesto Records. The double-disc CD/DVD set features the guitar great live at the Leverkusen Jazztage Festival in Germany on November 9, 2010, 13 years after his triumphant 1997 performance at the festival. The package offers audio and visual versions of the 10-song set recorded and filmed in high-definition for German television.
The already high-quality audio and video have been digitally remastered from the original tapes. For the performance, Holdsworth was backed by acclaimed drummer and long-time collaborator Chad Wackerman and ace bassist Ernest Tibbs. The bass player also wrote liner notes for the set, based on his personal memories of performing with Holdsworth and Wackerman, and, along with Wackerman, is also featured in an interview included on the DVD as a bonus.
As Tibbs explains, the Leverkusen Festival was a treat to play. “It had the best sound quality, best stage, best crew – I always had a great time there. The audience at Leverkusen was totally supportive and into the music, real superfans of jazz and fusion. Those are the core people that you love to play for.” However, playing with Holdsworth provided some unique challenges for Tibbs, who is known for his work with a diverse roster of artists ranging from Andy Summers and David Benoit to Dionne Warwick and Lee Ritenour.
“When you were playing in Allan’s trio, you didn’t have a piano or keyboard player that you could rely on, so you had to be able to cover and be the drivetrain,” Tibbs says. “Coming from an R&B background, I figured that this was going to be a great experience for me. I took it as a challenge and once I got it, it felt great.”
LEVERKUSEN 2010 follows the previous four releases in the Holdsworth live series, LIVE IN JAPAN 1984, WARSAW SUMMER JAZZ DAYS ’98, FRANKFURT ’86, and LEVERKUSEN ’97, which were embraced by Holdsworth’s hardcore fanbase. A guitarist’s guitarist, Holdsworth’s music and legacy have been embraced by a who’s who of axe-slingers over the years, ranging from Eddie Van Halen and Joe Satriani to Frank Zappa and Tom Morello.
It was Van Halen who brought the British-born Holdsworth to the attention of Warner Bros. Records, while Zappa once called him “one of the most interesting guys on guitar on the planet.” LEVERKUSEN 2010 opens with “Leave Them On,” which later turned up on Gary Husband’s studio album, Dirty & Beautiful, Volume 1, slightly retitled “Leave ‘Em On.” Other highlights include the Holdsworth live staples “Proto-Cosmos” and “Water on the Brain – Pt. II,” as well as the triple shot of “Madame Vintage,” “Above and Below” and “The Things You See (When You Haven’t Got Your Gun).”
As was often the case, Holdsworth also generously shared the spotlight with his collaborators, covering the Wackerman composition “The Fifth” and allowing the drummer to solo on “Letters of Marque.” In all, LEVERKUSEN 2010 is a worthy addition to the Holdsworth legacy of live performances filled with stellar musicianship. As Tibbs puts it, “I think that Allan’s music is in a class of its own. Harmonically and improvisation-wise, it’s out of this world. People will be studying his music a hundred years from now.
I’m already seeing a whole new generation of young guitarists studying his music the same way that young saxophonists study John Coltrane’s music.” “Allan was a beautiful person; a really nice person and he was very generous and very thoughtful.,” he adds. “It was an honor for me to have had the opportunity to make music with him and play in his trio.”
That honor now extends to Holdsworth fans worldwide with the release of LEVERKUSEN 2010. Other Allan Holdsworth albums available on Manifesto include IOU, Road Games, Metal Fatigue, Atavachron, Sand, Secrets, Wardenclyffe Tower, Hard Hat Area, None Too Soon, The Sixteen Men of Tain, Flat Tire and Then!, as well as Eidolon: The Allan Holdsworth Collection.

Dark Comedy / Thriller HOW TO KILL YOUR ROOMMATES AND GET AWAY WITH IT has its world premier this October in Hollywood!
How to Kill Your Roommates and Get Away with It tells the story of Ellie (Nicole Cinaglia) who has had it with her roommates (Lara Jean Sullivan & Eric Reingrover) and is ready to take drastic action. With the help of her best friend, Jacob (Hunter Johnson), the two start plotting ways to get out of her miserable living situation and not get caught.

How to Kill Your Roommates and Get Away with It will have its world premiere on October 3rd, 2021 at 6:00 PM at the Hollywood’s historic Chinese Theater as part of Silicon Beach Film Festival 2021. Limited seats are available for public and the cast & crew will be in attendance.
Tickets are available here on BLOCK S:
This film was produced by the multi-award winner, Alexander T. Hwang (“Paranormal Attraction”) along with Robbie Dias (“13 Fanboys“) and Erick Stryker (TV’s Worst Week Ever). Executive produced by Will Garay (“Bloodthirst“)
I’ve been producing many features over the years, but finally I am here with my directorial feature debut, and I’m very proud of the work my cast and crew have done. We shot this safely in early 2021 during a difficult time for film productions, and I have to say, it wouldn’t have happened if my producer Alex Hwang had not pushed me to do the best job possible, and safely, using all COVID precautions. So thank you to Alex for what we delivered.
I also wanted to thank the hardworking cast and the rest of the crew. They were great, worked hard and were very helpful in getting this movie made. It has been quite a journey. I cannot wait for everyone to see it. So please join us on the big screen at the Hollywood’s historic Chinese Theater!
Amon Tobin’s HOW DO YOU LIVE Out Today!
How Do You Live is Amon Tobin’s first new album since he launched his Nomark Records label with the #1 Fear in A Handful of Dust and its sister album, Long Stories, in 2019. In the 25 years since Amon Tobin released his first album under the pseudonym Cujo, he has made music that has not only tested the boundaries of sound but has also challenged our emotional response to the music that electronics can make.
Tobin has released pioneering bass music as Two Fingers, psyche-folk as Figueroa, rock electronica as Only Child Tyrant. His most recent outing as Stone Giants showed another side as he explored love songs through his own unique lens. When considering the influence of his Nomark label mates on this new album, Amon comments, “Everything feeds in. After spending time in the micro of personal experiences with Stone Giants and Figueroa this record explores bigger scenery from a distance, for the most part.”
In a quarter century of music making Tobin is one of those artists who has never sat still; restless to always try one more thing, one more avenue, a different fork in the road. Tobin’s records are musical anomalies. They’ve been this way since the beginning, and in 2021 his musical curiosity remains as sharp as ever.
