What's new on VOD this Week?

VOD 550

This week's crop of VOD releases is about as solid as you can get.

It's an eclectic mix this week, with all five of these movies being worth a rental, for different reasons. So no matter what kind of movie watching mood you find yourselves int his weekend, one of them should fit the bill.

The big VOD release this week is Honeymoon.

Young newlyweds Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon, where the promise of private romance awaits them. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods.

Honeymoon looks like it's going to be great, and its 82% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes gives us hope that it will be. We'll let you know sometime tomorrow.

Edge of Tomorrow is available now on Amazon Instant as an Early Release, and if you skipped it when it was at a Theater near you this past June, you missed out on one hell of a Sci-Fi flick.

Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again...and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

I don't understand how Edge of Tomorrow bombed at the U.S. Box Office this Summer, because it was one of the most enjoyable experiences we've had in a Theater all year. If you think it looks silly, lame, or run-of-the-mill, trust us when we say that it's not. If you love a good Sci-Fi flick, then you need to see this one asap.

The Hunted is the directorial debut of The Collector star, Josh Stewart, so we can't help but be intrigued. 

Chasing their dream of landing their own hunting show, two hunters head into the dense, secluded mountains of West Virginia only to realize they are not alone.

The fact that it's Found Footage gives us some pause, but with all of the positive word of mouth the movie has already received, we're still excited to see how it plays.

Borgman is another movie sitting with a solid score over at Rotten Tomatoes (85%), so we're inclined to believe all of the hype surrounding it, or at least most of it.

A vagrant enters the lives of an arrogant upper-class family, turning their lives into a psychological nightmare in the process.

We've been sitting on our copy of Borgman for a while now, and one of these days here fairly soon, we'll finally give it a spin and review it.

Finally we have Killer Mermaid aka Nymph aka Mamula.

Two beautiful young women go on an exotic Mediterranean vacation and uncover the watery lair of a killer mermaid hidden beneath an abandoned military fortress. What was once a carefree adventure becomes a grueling fight for survival.

We've already seen this one, and though it's not a perfect film by any stretch, we enjoyed a lot of it. Kristina Klebe was good here, as she always is, but it was the appearance of the all-time acting great, Franco Nero, that stole the show for us. We also thought that the ending was pretty awesome.

If you think the trailer looks fun, then you'll probably dig the movie. If not, then run.

So now is the time when you go and watch one of these movies... go! We're going to watch Honeymoon, ourselves, so you won't be alone! *In spirit, anyways.
