    Best label 2011

    Arrow

    "It's often the smaller-funded labels that do the best work. Arrow has released marvellous discs of many of cinema's classics, such as Bicycle Thieves, Rififi and Les Diaboliques, but it's for their horror releases that they truly excel. The more respectable directors like George A Romero and Dario Argento get their due here, but Arrow also pull out all the stops for such (unfairly) lesser regarded Gore-teurs as Lucio Fulci and Frank Henenlotter. Blu-rays of Fulci classics The Beyond and City Of The Living Dead show that the films are far more atmospheric and better made than they ever appeared before, and for Henenlotter (with the imminent Frankenhooker disc) you get extensive extras that cover the rarely examined scene of low-budget New York film-makers and the lost grindhouses of Times Square and 42nd Street."

What more can anyone really say? With a title that always brings a schoolboy smirk to my face and some of the most ridiculous scenes in a modern horror film that I can recall - ''Frankenhooker'' is the perfect midnight movie for fans of subversive and rather silly cinema.

Director Frank Henenlotter (recently only returning from MIA with the eagerly awaited BAD BIOLOGY) has always made movies that walk the line of absurdity. From his ''Basket Case'' trilogy to his drug addiction metaphor splatter epic ''Brain Damage'', Henenlotter's movies have always been horror comedies with an undercurrent of an actual idea behind them. Not just 'face value' horror pap - actually, something going on behind all the rubber and blood. Frankenhooker, although not as clever as something like 'Brain Damage' - does work on many levels, but also does what it says on the tin. It has a woman reanimated as a hooker. Which for me, is what makes this director very special.

The story has Jeffrey Franken (played to perfection by James Lorinz) overcome by the death of his fiance (Patty Mullen) in a freak lawn mower accident. Distraught to the fact that his love no longer has a body (and only a severed head!), he decides to re-animate her by collecting body parts of various prostitutes in the vain hope that he can somehow recreate his deceased partner. Along the way, Jeffrey gets involved in 'super crack', a pimp named zorro and many, many ladies of the night. It's all played for laughs and is easily the work of a guy who loves 50s nudie movies and gross out gore and comedy. Its low budget actually helps keep the movie on the seedy side and the cast are pitch perfect in their over the top delivery. Henenlotters' direction is sharp and his screenplay is both funny, playful and ridiculous.

Frankenhooker is an inspired work of genius. The plot could almost be Shakespearian, if old Will could have written with this much style. If you like your films with lawnmower accidents, brains in jars, crack and hookers (and let's face it, who doesn't?) you cannot afford to miss this.
The basic plot is man's girl is killed (brilliantly), man invents super-crack, man trys to reanimate girl using hookers' body parts. Its the time old tale of young love flourishing in the face of adversity - I would strongly recommend the directors of Titanic have a butcher's at this before making the same mistakes again.
My only critism of this film is that it needs more Jar Jar Binks and Celine Dion.

This is just great. Sound Plot, Great dialogue, and great acting. That is quite possibly the best performance of a woman bought back from the dead using the body parts of various dead hookers I have, or likely to see ever. And it was very well shot, i have never seen a exploding hooker action sequence as good as that. period. And right at the end a twist no one saw coming. watch this. you know you want to

When your summer lovin comes to an abrubpt end under the blades of your trusty, rusty lawnmower and the girl of your dream's life gets cut shorter than your newly mown grass what would you do? Cry yourself to sleep whilst listening to Radiohead? Or rebuild her and bring her back to life, better and bustier than ever using the best cuts of local hookers? Surely such an idea can't go wrong? Can it?

Got to hand it to Arrow they have done it again. What they do, they do so well.

Time and time again they reach back into my childhood 80s video rental store memories and return with classic titles that I can relive again and take a nostalgic, bloody and sleazy trip down memory lane. Some of the titles may have been released on DVD since through other companies but you have to applaud the love Arrow put into their releases. Yes the transfers may not make them the best titles to showboat your HD setup, but considering the source material for many of the titles they are as good as you are going to get unless they do a Hollywood shot for shot remake, and nobody wants that!

What really makes Arrow titles stand out from the crowd though are the extras, pure gold as usual.

The packaging for their blu-ray releases make them must own items for any serious genre collector. You get the usual reversible sleeve with both original and commissioned artwork, double sided fold-out artwork poster and exclusive collector's booklet featuring brand new writing on the film by regular contributor Calum Waddell. Whenever friends eye my blu-ray collection they always head straight for the Arrow shelf, the packaging always screams "pick me up and look at me!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my arrow video edition of Frankenhooker! Not only do I get the hilarious film, but it's got loads of features to boot. The visual quality is better than with previous editions with really sharp images and great colours, and the packaging looks super sleek on my film shelf.

Will definitely be buying more from them - great high quality product! Thanks!

Exploding super-crack-addicted hookers, an out of control killer lawn mower, a morbid crazed
recluse, a floating brain with one eye... what more could a cult film fan ask for?!

The basic premise of this film revolves around the classic tale of Frankenstein, but with one major difference; Frank Henenlotter is behind the camera! Living up to the standards of his other masterpieces, Brain Damage and Basket Case, Frankenhooker is totally insane, filled with flying limbs, boob-selecting and the zaniest Frankenstein creation you'll ever see. The acting is top notch (especially from the underappreciated James Lorinz who stole Street Trash despite having only a small role). The comedy, quotable lines and gore comes thick and fast in this off-the-wall movie.

Arrow's Blu-Ray release of this film is simply incredible with its four artwork panels, poster, exclusive booklet and wealth of special features. This version is without a shadow of a doubt, the best release of this film so far.

I would highly recommend this to all fans of cult cinema or those looking for something slightly different for a fun night in.
