Arrow Video is excited to announce the March 2021 lineup of their new subscription-based ARROW platform, now also available to UK subscribers, joining the US and Canada.
The March lineup blooms with the March 1 release of Jill Gevargizian’s debut feature The Stylist. Based on Gevargizian’s award-winning short of the same name, The Stylist reunites Gevargizian with the short’s lead actor Najarra Townsend (Contracted, Wolf Mother). Townsend stars as Claire, a lonely hairstylist who becomes obsessed with her clients…to their peril. Brea Grant (After Midnight, director of 12 Hour Shift) joins the feature as Olivia, an unsuspecting bride who makes the deadly mistake of hiring Claire for her big day. The Stylist streams exclusively on ARROW in the US, Canada and the UK.
ARROW Stories will be home to a host of exclusive extras for The Stylist, including the original award-winning short, an introduction to the film by Gevargizian, behind the scenes featurettes and more, giving fans an insight into how the acclaimed thriller came together.
March will also see the ARROW bow of collected shorts from filmmakers Jim Cummings and Brian Lonano. The Brian Lonano Collection, Volume 1 drops March 1, featuring five shorts showcasing Lonano’s bizarre aesthetic and DIY effects: Crow Hand!!!, Gwilliam, BFF Girls, Gwilliam’s Tips for Turning Tricks into Treats and the exclusive premiere of The Devil’s Asshole.

I am but a small website in this big wide world. As much as I would love to make this website a big and wonderful entity. That would bring in more costs. So, for now all I hope is to make Upcoming On Screen self sufficient. Well enough to where any website fees are less of a worry for me in the future. You can support the website below…
You can support us in a variety of ways (other than that wonderful word of mouth) and those lovely follows. If you are so inclined to help out then you can support us via Patreon, find our link here! We don’t want to ask much from you, so for now we have limited our tiers to £1.50 and £3.50. These will of course grow the more we plan to do here at Upcoming On Screen.
Thanks for reading, every view helps us out more than you would think (we have fragile egos). Until next time.
