ARROW presents a frightening film-a-day with their curated special season SHOCKTOBER 31

All Hallow’s Eve is upon us this October and to celebrate ARROW have curated a special season Shocktober 31. With everything from J-horror to Giallo, slashers galore, cannibals, witches and more, this season has everything you need to carve a pumpkin to party with, or to make sure that you don’t get a wink of sleep!

ARROW presents a frightening film-a-day to turn your October into a Shock-tober and to make your Halloween go with a scream! Must-see titles include:


A group of teenage friends are found dead, their bodies grotesquely contorted, their faces twisted in terror. Reiko (Nanako Matsushima, When Marnie Was There), a journalist and the aunt of one of the victims, sets out to investigate the shocking phenomenon, and in the process uncovers a creepy urban legend about a supposedly cursed videotape, the contents of which causes anyone who views it to die within a week – unless they can persuade someone else to watch it, and, in so doing, pass on the curse…

Children of the Corn

From the mind of celebrated horror author Stephen King, the man behind such classic terror tales as The Shining, Carrie, and It, comes one of his most chilling offerings yet.

Linda Hamilton (The Terminator) and Peter Horton (Thirtysomething) star as a young couple who find themselves lost on the backroads of Nebraska, eventually winding up in the seemingly deserted town of Gatlin. But the town is far from empty. As the couple soon discover, it is inhabited by a twisted cult of murderous children, thirsty for another blood sacrifice…

Death Screams

In one of the most unlikely cinematic pairings of all time, David Nelson (who rose to fame as a child star playing alongside his real-life family in the wholesome TV show The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet) directs Playboy Playmate and adult star Susan Kiger in this bodycount-heavy, long overlooked slice of Southern fried hack-and-slash – 1982’s Death Screams!

Shocktober 31 kicks off on ARROW from 1st October.
