New Arrow 4K and Blu-ray Titles for August 2021

DUNE and Italian Cinema Headline Arrow's August 2021 Lineup from MVD EntertainmentAs we enter the dog days of summer, Arrow continues to turn up the heat. On August 3rd, Arrow will kick things off with the release of The Sergio Martino Collection. This 3-disc set features three classic films from one of Italy's most celebrated genre filmmakers. George Hilton stars as an insurance investigator trying to get to the bottom of a strange string of murders in The Case of the Scorpion's Tail. This early '70s giallo effort was praised by The Terror Trap as "one of Martino's best crime thrillers and validates the notion that the director is indeed capable of creating high-intensity nailbiting moments." Next, Martino takes on Edgar Allen Poe in the wonderfully titled Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key. Martino borrows elements from Poe's "The Black Cat" to craft this tale of a series of murders around the estate of a degenerate author and his wife. In The Suspicious Death of a Minor, the murder of a prostitute leads to the discovery of a trafficking ring with ties to powerful people. All three films come with 2K restorations from the original camera negatives.

On August 24th, Arrow will release two titles. First up is 1969's Blind Beast. This story of a blind sculptor that kidnaps a young model with the help of his mother comes courtesy of director Yasuzô Masumura...
