What’s new on VOD this week?
A Hobbit war, some dystopian teen angst, a bit of supernatural rape-revenge, some disturbing deprogramming, hot chicks fighting for their lives, and a bizarre sex club... this is your week in VOD Releases!

First, the two films of the week that we don't really need to discuss:

  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is an Early Release, and is available for purchase only. 
  • We discussed Mockingjay a few weeks ago when it was an Early Release, but as of 3/7, it can be rented as well.

Avenged: A deaf girl is brutalized by a murderous gang who are then hunted by her when the bloodthirsty spirit of an Apache warrior inhabits her lifeless body.

Not sure what we're gonna get with Avenged, but if the trailer is any indication, it looks to be a mean, creepy little revenge flick. It's got a slick look to it for a lower budget flick, and the Supernatural twist makes it look like it could end up being an above average effort.

Faults: Claire is under the grip of a mysterious new cult called Faults. Desperate to be reunited with their daughter, Claire's parents recruit one of the world's foremost experts on mind control, Ansel Roth.

The trailer for Faults makes it look a bit light-hearted and quirky at first, and then it changes gears to something that looks a bit more sinister. It almost has a Coen Brothers vibe about it, and that is absolutely fine with us. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is hot, and Leland Orser is a great character guy, so we'll be watching this one with no prejudice this weekend.
Muck: After narrowly escaping an ancient burial ground, a group of friends find themselves trapped between two evils, forcing them to fight, die, or go back the way they came.

It feels as if we've been waiting forever to see Muck, and now we finally get our chance! This movie looks like it's going to be wall-to-wall sexy ladies and gore, and and maybe even funny too. If the story is halfway decent, we'll be pleased.
R100: An ordinary man with an ordinary life joins a mysterious club. The membership lasts for one year only and there is one rule: no cancellation under any circumstance. The man enters into a whole new exciting world he never before experienced where crazy love goes wilder and crazier. Is it an illusion or is it real? Welcome to the world no one has dared to explore until now!

This movie looks different, and we're not sure if that's different in a good way, or different in a "why in the hell did I just watch this" kind of way. In all reality, we'll probably wait until it hits Netflix to check it out, but for fans of odd Japanese flicks, it's probably worth a rental.
