Horror in the Heartland - The 'Deranged' Legacy of Ed Gein

With our Blu-ray of 1974 classic Deranged unleashed this week, we thought we'd take a closer look at the shadowy real-life figure which inspired the film - "Plainfield Ghoul" Ed Gein. 

For those not in the know, Deranged is a loose retelling of the Ed Gein story, which also served as the inspiration behind the horror classics Psycho and The Texas Chain Saw MassacreOur friends over at Rue Morgue magazine (who've graciously contributed an article to booklet accompanying our release of Deranged) here present a whistle-stop tour through the legacy of Gein: murderer, grave robber, pop icon.

How to make an Arrow Video: Acquisition

One of the aims of this blog is to provide an insight into each and every Arrow Video release, whether that be discussion around film genres, images from the films, packaging photos but also how a release is actually made…

We thought the best way to look at how an Arrow Video release is made would be to look at each stage of the processes and procedures of how a release is created from acquisition to finished product. The release we will be looking at is our 2014 release of Michael Armstrong’s 1970 film Mark of the Devil.
