3.0 out of 5 stars A Really Hard-To-Find Curio of 70s Horror. August 28, 2009
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Back in 1974 Warner Brothers along with Brut Productions (remember Brut cologne for men?) barely released two films that were classified as horror films but really weren't. One of them, THE WICKER MAN, has attained the status of a cult classic and is well known even inspiring a remake in 2006. The second film, WELCOME TO ARROW BEACH, disappeared without a trace although I managed to see it on its initial run (later it wound up on the drive-in circuit as TENDER FLESH and on TV minus 11 minutes as COLD STORAGE). This twisted psychological study of modern day cannibalism is one of the more bizarre film scenarios ever conceived for a mainstream release. Who knows why it appealed to director-star Laurence Harvey (he may have needed the money or relished a challenge). In what turned out to be his final film role, Harvey portrays a Korean War veteran (just as in THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE) who had to eat his dead companions in order to stay alive. 20 years later he is living on a private beach in an incestuous relationship with his sister (Joanna Pettet) and killing people in order to satisfy his craving for human flesh.

While the story is as sick as it sounds, Harvey manages to direct it with skill and sensitivity making good use of his meager budget. Among the film's remarkable set pieces are the eating of an extremely rare cooked steak and the murder of a victim done as a series of camera stills. Veterans John Ireland and Stuart Whitman are on hand to lend credibility along with the strikingly beautiful Meg Foster (those blue eyes!) in one of her earliest roles. ARROW BEACH does have some serious problems. The dated hip dialogue wasn't very good to begin with and the groovy early 70s music (Lou Rawls sings the title song!) is totally inappropriate to what's going on.

i like laurence harvey and wanted to see his low budget horror movie.the quality of the video was good and it was nice to see Meg Foster when she was young (she was very recognizable).there was a moderate level of gore and the plot was discernable.definitely worth it.
