Arrow Video has unveiled the December lineup of horror movies set to his their new subscription-based platform, which is available for subscribers in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland.

Here is the full press release:

Extras for The Last Matinee include an interview with director Maxi Contenti and Killer Attractions: Maxi Contenti & Ricardo Islas in Conversation, a discussion between the film’s director and star Ricardo Islas, director of Frankenstein: Day of the Beast.

December 1’s Seasonal offerings begin with The Sublime Gothic: Edgar Allan Poe adaptations, cursed crumbling castles, decaying minds and ancestral homes, mad untethered emotions and lashings of overwrought doom and mystery – we love to wallow in the sublime gothic at ARROW, and with The Mill of the Stone Women joining our ranks, this seemed the perfect opportunity for a season devoted to the wild, the tormented, the possibly haunted and the aching romance of all things deliciously dark and gothic.
Titles include: Mill of the Stone Women, Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key, The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, The Black Cat, and The Shiver of the Vampires.
Also bowing on December 1 is The Dark of the Matinee, inspired by The Last Matinee. A season full of thrills, chills, smiles, tears, scares and buckets of blood, with films from across the service that are set in the cinema or theatre, The Dark of the Matinee highlights the refuge that the cinema can be for us, but also all the scary things that could happen in there… once the lights go down.
Titles include: The Last Matinee, Blood Theater, Cinema Paradiso, and Tale of Cinema.
December 6’s Season delves deep into the land of monsters with the Kaiju Collection, the best selection of the biggest and baddest city, village and bad guy stomping giant monsters around. Whether it’s heartbroken and angry hundred-foot tall apes, world-saving friend to all children turtles, enormous injustice smiting stone warriors, or even a gaggle of freaky looking spirits – ARROW’s got it covered. Make sure you’re wearing a helmet as we unleash the Shaw Brother’s spin on King Kong: Mighty Peking Man; all of the spinning, flying and fire-breathing baddie battling Gamera’s adventures; the full trilogy of peasant protector Daimajin’s feudal fights for fairness; and the original three strange and spooky Yokai films, as well as the legendary Takashi Miike’s recent reboot.
Titles include: Mighty Peking Man, Gamera vs. Viras, Wrath of Daimajin, and 100 Monsters.
December 10th debuts Paranoia (US/CA), So Sweet so Perverse (US/CA), A Quiet Place to Kill (US/CA), and Knife of Ice (US/CA).
In the run-up to Christmas Day, ARROW offers up an absolute gift of a curated season to give your cheeks a warm and rosy festive glow. So open these presents early (we won’t tell), finish that drink, clear your throat and bust out your best carol-singing voice for our take on a yuletide classic starting December 14, The 12 Slays of Christmas:
On the Twelfth Day of Christmas, My ARROW gave to me: Twelve scissors slashing, Eleven cultists chasing, Ten ghosts a-waiting, Nine ladies loving, Eight men under tables, Seven creepy hotels, Six censors snipping, FIIIVE GWILL-I-AMS!, Four crawling guys, Three metalheads, Two cannibals, and a shunt into So-ci-e-ty!
