What's new on VOD this week?

Black Friday is now over, so while you're recuperating from your shopping-inflicted wounds and fatigue, maybe you should kick back and rent a movie. They're totally therapeutic like that.

The Babadook is really the only VOD release of note this week unless you're 14 and consider anything with "Mutant Turtle" in the title to be of note. So click the pics below to rent something, and if none of those movies do it for you, then there's bound to be something that strikes your fancy over on our VOD Release Dates page.

*As of right now, Amazon is having issues getting both The Babadook & Feed the Gods up and working on Amazon Instant. They said that they're working to rectify the situation, so either wait for them to sort it out, or head over to iTunes/Cable VOD to watch either film.

The Babadook: A single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her son's fear of a monster lurking in the house, but soon discovers a sinister presence all around her.

The Babadook is one of the most praised Horror movies of 2014, and rightly so; it's fresh, different, and above all else, it's genuinely terrifying (on a few different levels.) If you read our review below, you'll see that we took issue with the movie's main characters, but that the movie evolved into something that made us forget about their annoying behavior.

This is a very solid and effective movie, and it's well worth your time and rental $$$.

Read our review of The Babadook here.
Feed the Gods: Two brothers return to a small mountain town in search of their long lost parents only to discover that the place has a monstrous taste for tourists.

The trailer for Feed the Gods looks decent enough, but this is one of those movies that could go either way. We're hoping that it leans more towards the "pleasant surprise" side of the scale. I guess we'll find out.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: When a kingpin threatens New York City, a group of mutated turtle warriors must emerge from the shadows to protect their home.

We include TMNT here not because it's anything that we really care to promote, but because we know that the franchise is beloved by millions of people, and especially kids. Kids love these guys. Your kids will love these guys.

So this is basically a kids movie. Rent accordingly.
