Moody Horror from the ’70s and a Zany Modern Comedy
Headline Arrow’s November Lineup
As the end of the year approaches, Arrow Video continues to deliver the highest quality home video releases, including these feature films from two of cinema’s most unique voices.
In 1977, Robert Wise returned to his horror roots one last time to direct the film adaption of Frank De Felitta’s novel, Audrey Rose. Bill (John Beck) and Janice Templeton (Marsha Mason) are a wealthy couple living in Manhattan with their 11-year-old daughter. The couple’s idyllic life is interrupted when they realize that a man appears to be stalking them in public. Eventually, the man reaches out and introduces himself as Elliot Hoover (Anthony Hopkins). Elliot believes that the Templeton’s child is the reincarnation of his deceased daughter.
Arrow Video will be releasing Wise’s horror swan song on a stunning new Blu-ray on November 8. This new release features a brand-new 2K restoration from a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative. Special features include new and archival interviews about both the film and the concept of reincarnation.
Over the last decade, few filmmakers have had a style and voice as distinct as that of French director Quentin Dupieux. Incredible But True is the latest example of Dupieux’s unique comedic taste. A couple living a nice suburban life have their world flipped upside down when they uncover a mystery in their new home.
Incredible But True premiered at the 72nd Annual Berlin Film Festival to rave reviews. The film has a 96% Tomatometer rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics praising Dupieux and his zany brand of humor. Kat Hughes of THN describes Incredible But True as “a quirky and exciting analysis of the aging process told in an innovative way,” while Martin Unsworth of Starburst writes that Dupieux “continues his streak of bizarre movies with this light-hearted but poignant tale that has a Charlie Kaufman quality.”
Incredible But True comes home to Blu-ray on November 8. Special features include cast and crew interviews and an appreciation of Dupiex’s films from critic Elena Lazic.
