ARROW Seasons For March: Jill Gevargizian’s THE STYLIST To Terrorize You, Tributes To Meiko Kaji, H.G. Wells And More
It’s a new month! For horror and cult film fans and ARROW subscribers alike in North America and the U.K., that means more inbound excitement as the streamer gears up to tear into your senses with even more thrills.
First and foremost is the release of Jill Gevargizian’s The Stylist, starring Najarra Townsend (Contracted, Wolf Mother) and Brea Grant (After Midnight, Lucky). The film is based on the director’s own earlier shortfilm of the same name, and will release on March 1 along with exclusive extras as part of the package.
We all dream of being someone else… but for Claire (Townsend), that dream goes from an obsession to a living nightmare. Hairstylist by day, serial killer and collector of scalps by night, Claire’s lonely existence is thrown into turmoil when her regular client, Olivia (Grant), asks her to style her hair for her wedding day. Increasingly fixated on Olivia’s seemingly flawless life, Claire vows to lock up her scalp collection and change her ways for good – only to discover that repressing your deadly desires is easier said than done…
The monthly seasons kick off the same day with titles lined up for “Traffic Was Murder” and “Unchained Melody: The Films of Meiko Kaji”, curated shortfilms comprising “The Brian Lonano Collection” and Jim Cumming’s “The Minutes series”, with “Caught On Tape”, homages to H.G. Wells and “Makeup Effects Masterclass”, and much more.
