What's New on VOD this week?

This week in VOD brings us only three new releases of interest, and they make for a very mixed bag of uncertainty.

Don't forget that Guardians of the Galaxy was officially released this week for rental (and not just advanced purchase), so if you've been waiting to rent it, you can finally do so HERE.

The Captive: Eight years after the disappearance of Cassandra, some disturbing incidents seem to indicate that she's still alive. Police, parents and Cassandra herself, will try to unravel the mystery of her disappearance.

This was odd movie that felt a bit confused, and it should have been far better than it was, especially considering the director and acting talent involved. The Captive has its moments, and it's a beautiful film to look at, but it's also like trying to put a puzzle together with pieces that just don't fit. Give it a rent if you think it looks good, but just know going in that it has some issues that the trailer doesn't highlight.

We were 50/50 on this one.
Daylight: A horror/thriller about a team of Child Protective Services workers who investigate a series of bizarre child abuse cases in the small town of Daylight, IN. As the mystery unfolds, they discover the cases may actually be linked by demonic possession.

We're really nervous about this one. On one hand, the trailer looks decent, and we love the creepy premise. On the other, it's a low-budget Found Footage flick, so that means it could really, really suck. We're definitely going to give Daylight a watch, and hope that it ends up being a diamond in the rough. We'd even settle for an emerald in the rough, to be honest.
The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears: Following the disappearance of his wife, a man finds himself on a dark and twisted trail of discovery through the labyrinthine halls of his apartment building. Led on a wild goose chase by cryptic messages from his mysterious neighbours, he becomes entangled in a hellish nightmare as he unlocks their strange fantasies of sensuality and bloodshed. The Strange Colour Of Your Body's Tears is a visually dazzling experience from the creators of Amer that takes you on a journey into mystery and blood soaked terror that you will never forget.

We've been waiting to see this one for quite some time now, mainly because we (mostly) liked the Director's first effort, Amer (review HERE.) Strange Color looks to be more of the same hypnotic, artsy, visually-stunning material that we got with Amer, which should at least make for an interesting watch. We hope.

*For some reason, this movie is already streaming on Netflix, so if you're a subscriber, head on over there and stream it for free.
