Cannibal Holocaust

release date: 12th december 2022


Condemned, banned, prosecuted… Cannibal Holocaust is just about the most infamous film ever made, going further into horror and cruelty than just about any other movie as an American film crew makes contact with a tribe of primitive cannibals – and swiftly wishes they hadn’t. It’s the sort of film for which the phrase ‘stomach churning’ might have been invented but there’s more to Cannibal Holocaust than simply inducing nausea: it’s one of the most important films-about-filmmaking there is, and a powerful study of violence too. Director Ruggero Deodato’s (Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man) savage masterpiece has never looked better than on this gorgeous 4K restoration. 88 Films are proud to present the definitive edition of this horrible, essential classic.

Silent Running

release date: 12th december 2022


In 1968, visual effects pioneer Douglas Trumbull (The Andromeda Strain, Close Encounters of the Third Kind) contributed to the ground-breaking special photographic effects of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Four years later, he stamped his own indelible mark on the science fiction genre with his mesmerising directorial debut – Silent Running. In the not-so-distant future, Earth is barren of all flora and fauna, with what remains of the planet’s former ecosystems preserved aboard a fleet of greenhouses orbiting in space. When the crews are ordered to destroy the remaining specimens, one botanist, Freeman Lowell (Bruce Dern, The ’Burbs), rebels and flees towards Saturn in a desperate bid to preserve his own little piece of Earth that was, accompanied only by the ship’s three service robots. Featuring a captivating central performance by Dern, visual effects that rival anything in 2001 and a powerful ecological message, Silent Running is a haunting and prescient sci-fi classic that resonates even more strongly today than it did at the time of its original release.

release date: 5th december 2022


In 1998, Mike Hodges, director of the iconic Get Carter, returned to the genre that made his name with Croupier, an unforgettable thriller that put leading man Clive Owen firmly on the map and established itself as a classic of British crime cinema. Jack Manfred (Clive Owen) is an aspiring writer going nowhere fast. Taking a job as a casino croupier just to make ends meet, he finds himself seduced by the high stakes world of luck and chance.  As the job takes over his life and his relationship to girlfriend Marion (Gina McKee) begins to crumble, Jack’s attention is caught by down-on-her-luck gambler Jani (Alex Kingston). Under pressure from her creditors, she asks Jack to be the inside man for a planned heist at the casino. It all sounds so easy. But even a pro can’t predict the cards he will be dealt.  With a screenplay by Paul Mayersberg (The Man Who Fell to Earth, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence) Hodges first theatrical feature in almost a decade proved that he’d lost none of his edge. Cooly confident, mercilessly gripping and tautly directed, Croupier arrives on Arrow Video looking better than ever, newly restored from the original 35mm camera negative with a wealth of special features.

The Velvet Underground

release date: 26th december 2022


Emerging from the primordial soup of glamour, gutter sleaze, and feverish creativity that was New York’s 1960s underground culture, the Velvet Underground redefined music with its at once raw and exalted blend of experimentation and art-damaged rock and roll. In his kaleidoscopic documentary The Velvet Underground, TODD HAYNES (Velvet Goldmine) vividly evokes the band’s incandescent world: the creative origins of the twin visionaries LOU REED and JOHN CALE, ANDY WARHOL’s fabled Factory, and the explosive tension between pop and the avant-garde that propelled the group and ultimately consumed it. Never-before-seen performances, interviews, rare recordings, and mind-blowing transmissions from the era’s avant-garde cinema scene come together in an ecstatic swirl of sound and image that is to the traditional music documentary what the Velvets were to rock: utterly revolutionary.

Ju-on – The Grudge Collection

release date: 19th december 2022


“Ju-On”: the name given to a deadly curse spawned when someone dies in the grip of a violent rage. All who come into contact with it are doomed… Collected together for the first time, writer-director Takashi Shimizu’s Ju-On: The Grudge series represents the flesh-crawling pinnacle of Japanese chillers that swept the globe at the turn of the millennium. The films introduce the anonymous family house in the suburbs of Tokyo where an unspeakable evil lingers alongside its residents, the ghastly mother-son pairing of Kayoko and Toshio Saeki. Shimizu’s disconcerting approach to plotting, unnerving eye for the uncanny details in the dark corners of the frame and an innate talent for effective jump scares so impressed Evil Dead director Sam Raimi that he invited the director to helm two Hollywood remakes. The quintessential J-horror series make its Blu-ray debut with a brand new 4K restoration of Ju-On: The Grudge and a wealth of new and archival extras, including Shimizu’s two The Curse straight-to-video precursors (previously unreleased outside Japan) and the White Ghost/Black Ghost diptych of tales unfolding within the same terrifying universe.


  • Haunting in Monochrome, a new interview with Takashi Shimizu on the Ju-On films
  • Being Kayako, a new interview with Takako Fuji on her role as Kayako
  • The Evolution of Ju-On, a brand new featurette with authors and Japan specialists Tom Mes and Zack Davisson discussing the cultural forces that shaped the series
