Arrow Video is the home video distribution arm of the United Kingdom-based film distribution company Arrow Films. Arrow Video releases collector-oriented Blu-ray and DVDs of independent, international, arthouse, cult, horror, and classic films. In 2018, it released all three entries of director Michio Yamamoto's Bloodthirsty Trilogy in a Blu-ray set in North America, the UK, and Japan. It also released a Gamera Blu-ray box set containing all 12 films, along with Dark Horse's Gamera: The Guardian of the Universe comic miniseries and Matt Frank's prequel one-shot comic The Last Hope on August 18, 2020. Arrow has continued to release Daiei properties on Blu-ray ever since, notably the Daimajin trilogy and Yokai Monsters series. They also acquired the Hong Kong/Japanese co-production The Mighty Peking Man, due for release as part of a Shaw Brothers collection on December 6, 2021.
