Arrow Video Preps FANTASTIC FACTORY PRESENTS For April

J Hurtado, Contributing Writer
Arrow Video has their first multi-film box set on the way.  This one will feature four of the most popular titles from Brian Yuzna's Fantastic Factory.  Included are: Beyond Re-Animator, Faust: Love of the Damned, Romasanta, and Arachnid.  I've only seen the first two, but they were enjoyable enough, nothing earth shattering.  However, as usual, Arrow Video have gone all out.  Find the complete details below.  The set is currently scheduled for April 18th.
FANTASTIC FACTORY PRESENTS...
RELEASED ON DVD ON 18TH APRIL, 2011

A BLOODY FEAST OF ZOMBIES, DEMONS, SPIDERS & WEREWOLVES!

Step into the Fantastic Factory for a festival of gory mayhem and blood-splattered horror. Four twisted tales of terror and carnage await you...

In Beyond Re-Animator, the evil Dr. Herbert West, a medical genius with an overwhelming drive to raise the dead, returns to what he knows best: science...and murder.

John Jaspers is driven to insanity in Faust and signs a pact with the devil in order to enact a horrible vengeance on the thugs who murdered his girlfriend. Transformed into a sickening beast, he stalks the night seeking only to maim and kill.

Alien spiders threaten the very existence of man in Arachnid, only a team of scientists and mercenaries stand in the way of eight-legged doom for humanity. Trapped on an island with a nest of hungry enemies, time is running out before the eggs were laid in every last one of them...

A traveller with a girl in every village leaves a trail of murder behind him but is he the killer or is there a beast stalking the night? Romasanta, based on a true life murder case, is a chilling tale of bloody romance, shadowy forests and Werewolves.

Dare you enter?
