A Christmas present from ARROW: 4 new titles for March 2012!

From our exclusive feed with Cult Labs we have some exciting news on Arrow's 2012 slate with 4 new titles announced for a March 2012 release. 

And what a gloriously eclectic mix it is, with a reassuringly (for me, anyway) strong showing from the Brits. There's cult SAS heroism, Moore, Burton and Harris  shooting baddies, a trashy creature feature and a sleazy video nasty. 

Read on for the official notes, and check out some artwork below...

Who Dares Wins (Arrow Video) 

THE 60 SECOND WAR BEGINS NOW! Paranoia, black ops and espionage combine in Who Dares Wins, a violent and edgy anti-terror classic starring Lewis Collins (The Professionals) and Edward Woodward (The Equalizer). 

The anti-nuclear movement is plotting a bloody outrage on British soil and, having already fatally lost their undercover operative at a violent protest, the secret services call on the aid of the SAS. Captain Peter Skellen (Collins) risks his career, his family and his life to infiltrate the terrorist group before they can unleash an attack that will devastate the country. 

Relive a classic cold war thrill ride which remains relevant to this day... Who Dares Wins, a violent lesson in how to deal with the enemy within.

The Wild Geese (Arrow Video)

One Last Pay Day... One More Chance To Die! 

Legendary hell-raisers Richard Burton and Richard Harris, along with a coolly detached Roger Moore are aging mercenaries with a taste for fine liquor, drawn together for a late but extremely lucrative pay day in The Wild Geese, an African adventure soaked in booze, gunfire and bloodshed. 

Colonel Allen Faulkner (Burton) is secretly back in London to accept the task of reinstating an African leader deposed in a violent military coup, but without the combat skills of his two old friends, there isn't going to be a mission. With his two reliable loose cannons in place, Faulkner and the team enact a text book rescue operation but disaster is close at hand when the cynical multinational who set up the whole deal turns the tables, striking a new deal with the local despot which sees The Wild Geese trying to escape with their lives intact.

The Wild Geese are ready for one last mission so finish your drinks and relive this classic old school British action adventure today.

Don't Go in the House (ArrowDrome)

IN A STEEL ROOM BUILT FOR REVENGE THEY DIE BURNING... IN CHAINS 

Most horror killers like to slash and slice their victims but little Donny prefers setting them alight in Don't Go In The House, a sleazy reminder of just how shocking horror movies could get in the video nasty era. 

Donny is a disturbed kid... A mother's boy if you will. That is until mother expires and Donny's world crumbles in on itself. Now, lonely, adrift and enslaved to dark voices in his head, Donny seeks female companionship but drinks and dancing are the last thing on his mind. Mother's telling him he's a bad boy and the voices won't let him rest. Maybe if he just gets a girl home and into his steel lined burning chamber, the chatter might quiet down... 

Now see Don't Go In The House - complete and uncut - and revel in the surreal sleaze, low rent Hitchcock melodrama, off Broadway acting and extreme, heat-seared violence of an independent horror classic that still retains its ability drop jaws, rattle cages and offend sensibilities over 30 years later.

EVERY ARROWDROME RELEASE INCLUDES A REVERSIBLE SLEEVE OF ORIGINAL ARTWORK AND A COLLECTOR'S BOOKLET!
