December sees a pair of must-have stocking-stuffers from Arrow Video, in the form of a camp cult horror and an extraordinary sci-fi epic.
First off is Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, starring the irresistible Cassandra Peterson as the gorgeous gothic horror host, starring in her very own, and very entertaining B-movie, where she inherits a mansion in a small town, and the locals want to burn her as a witch. Directed by Saturday Night Live veteran James Signorelli, this is an hilarious and spooky good time, given the exemplary Arrow treatment.
Then there’s the definitive Blu-ray release of the Kevin Costner sci-fi epic Waterworld. A post-apocalypse blockbuster, Costner is The Mariner – a mutant trader, adrift in a dystopian future where Earth is submerged under water, fighting against the villainous leader Deacon (Dennis Hopper, Blue Velvet) over a map to the mythical realm of “Dryland”. Presented here in an exclusive new restoration, in three different cuts, and with a wealth of extra material, this high-water mark of high-concept Hollywood can now be enjoyed as never before.
Both titles are packed with goodies and packaged with exclusive new artwork. Elvira arrives on December 3, while Waterworld is out on December 10.
