On December 4th, Arrow Video is pleased to release The Serpent’s Egg from legendary director Ingmar Bergman. In this spellbinding mystery, David Carradine stars as an out-of-work circus performer that gets caught up in a tangled web when he begins to ask questions about his brother’s bizarre death. For this film, Bergman teamed with powerhouse Italian director Dino De Laurentiis.

Twisted ’80s slasher Bloody Birthday comes home on December 18th with a brand new 2K restoration. A trio born on the same solar eclipse develop a habit for murdering adults in the Ed Hunt directed classic. This new release is loaded with special features, including two new commentaries, an interview with lead actress Lori Lethin and a video appreciation from renowned genre journalist Chris Alexander.

After his brother inexplicably commits suicide, unemployed Jewish-American circus performer Abel Rosenberg (David Carradine) is stuck in Berlin with his sister-in-law, Manuela (Liv Ullmann), a cabaret singer. Desperate circumstances lead to the pair taking jobs at a medical facility run by Professor Hans Vergerus (Heinz Bennent), who also offers to give them shelter. However, the clinic turns out be a very sinister place, and soon the lives of Abel and Manuela are in serious jeopardy.

As their 10th birthday approaches, three children, born prematurely during a complete solar eclipse, turn murderous.
