The Mermaid: Lake of the Dead on DVD
Do you smell fish?
The Mermaid: Lake of the Dead begins with a mermaid falling in love with a human, but that’s where the similarities with Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale end, instead taking a terrifying twist as she instead aims to keep him underwater in her Kingdom of Death while his fiancé must overcome her fear of water in order to save his life. Creepy, haunting and packed with jump-scares, you’ll never feel safe to go back in the water.
Visually stunning with gorgeous effects, the film explores the darker side of the mermaid legend - luring men to their deaths with their supposed beauty - which has been somewhat lost over the last few decades thanks to an iconic animated film.
The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes - who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods - abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It's the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven, and Vought - the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes and covers up all of their dirty secrets. The Boys are Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, Star Trek), Hughie (Jack Quaid, The Hunger Games), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso, Detroit), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, Hostages), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, Suicide Squad). Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) guest stars as Hughie's father.
Try the trailer above. Amazon Original The Boys Will Be in More Than 200 Countries and Territories on July 26 on Amazon Prime Video.

Memory: The Origins of Alien
The iconic scenes and sequences from seminal sci-fi horror ALIEN are firmly embedded in film history and popular culture: the creepy eggs and HR Giger designed spacecraft on a long dead planet; the pivotal facehugger attaching itself to one of the crew of the Nostromo; the shocking chest-bursting sequence and much, much more...
But while we may all now know that "in space, no-one can hear you scream", how did Ridley Scott and the creative team come up with the ideas for a blockbuster that changed both the horror and sci-fi genres and truly terrified audiences around the world?
As we approach the 40th Anniversary of the game-changing film a fascinating feature documentary MEMORY: THE ORIGINS OF ALIEN, from writer/director Alexandre O. Philippe (78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene), uncovers the origin story behind Scott's cinematic masterpiece, which arrives in cinemas on 30 August 2019 followed by DVD and on demand on 2 September from Dogwoof.

Swedes in space
Arrow Films is proud to celebrate the UK Premiere of the critically acclaimed Swedish Sci-fi film ANIARA at Edinburgh International Film Festival on 20th June with it being released from 30th August in UK cinemas and on digital platforms including iTunes, Sky Store and Amazon.
Based on a concept by Nobel prize-winner Harry Martinson, ANIARA is the story of one of the many spaceships used for transporting Earth's fleeing population to their new home-planet Mars. But just as the ship leaves the destroyed Earth, she collides with space junk and is thrown off her course. The passengers slowly realize that they'll never be able to return.
The Swedish Nobel Prize winner Harry Martinson wrote ANIARA as a poem in 1956 affected by the Cold War and the test detonations of the Hydrogen Bomb. Translated into different languages and developed into opera and stage productions, this is the first film adaptation.
Described as visionary, visually stunning and thought provoking, ANIARA is written and directed by Pella Kågerman (The Swedish Supporter, Stormakstiden) and Hugo Lilja (The Unliving, The Swedish Supporter), produced by award winning Annika Rogell (The Black Power Mixtape, Concerning Violence, My Skinny Sister) and Executive Produced by Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen (Antichrist, Melancholia, The Wife). It stars Emelie Jonsson, Arvin Kananian, Bianca Cruzeiro, Anneli Martini, Jennie Silfverhjelm, Peter Carlberg and Emma Broomé.
