Another busy month is lined-up for you on HorrorXtra, including the return flight of a true TV classic, Airwolf!

Here's the lowdown on what August has to offer:

Mutant X continues weekdays at 3pm and chronicles the adventures of a team of human mutants possessing extraordinary powers as a result of genetic engineering. Like hundreds of other unsuspecting subjects, these new mutants were altered in secret experiments conducted in a covert government project.

Mutant X's mission is to seek out fellow mutants to help them come to terms with their astoni...

Graham Humphreys' stunning poster art for Arrow Video FrightFest 2022 - a celebration of the festival's past 'trophy' films.

FrightFEst Poster 2022

Arrow Video FrightFest is proud to present Graham Humphreys' stand-out poster design for 2022, which marks the 14th appearance for his iconic Monster.

Graham revealed today: "The predominant theme is a celebration of past 'trophy' films. I took my inspiration references from an old paperback cover 'Vincent Price presents: The Price of Fear', in which Vincent's head is depicted mounted on a wooden shield. It seemed the perfect way to represent the films, with key portraiture represented as mounted heads. Rather than mount the head of the regular FrightFest monster, I thought it would be fun to turn him into the roaring lion of MGM's familiar mascot!"

Would you experience The Leftovers?

The Leftover Covers

Issued on limited edition white vinyl is Max Richter's emotive and minimal score to Damon Lindelof's TV series The Leftovers which is about a post-apocalyptic global event where 2% of the world's population disappears without explanation. Richter's approach explores the feelings of the protagonist's family, the Garveys, through intimate, small-scale music.

He tackles this psychological landscape by bringing a ritual quality to the score, while themes of departure and loss are represented by a sense of sonic decay, relying on the instrumentation of a few sustained tones on pianos, harps and celesta.

Max Richter is a classically trained composer that defies bound...
