Welcome, sinner. Pull up a pew and prepare yourself for a curated collection of Cult films that all have one thing in common: judgement is coming.
You know very well what you've done wrong and, as you're about to see, courtesy of the Judgement Day collection, if you've done wrong then you will get your comeuppance. And being ARROW, when uppance does come, it's swift and decisive, but also bloody and brutal. And a heck of a lot of fun! Amen.
The church of ARROW is now in session and our good book is a digital catalogue of thrills and horrors with a religious bent that will have you praising all the crazy Cult filmmakers who have blessed us with a bounty of bizarre and brilliant takes on faith on film that will leave you praying for more.
