Paul Walker's last ride; an insane Elisabeth Moss; a satanic teen sex comedy; and a young girl going through the worst bout of puberty ever... these are the VOD Releases for the last week of August!

Furious 7: Dominic and his crew thought they'd left the criminal mercenary life behind. They'd defeated international terrorist Owen Shaw and went their separate ways. But now, Shaw's brother, Deckard Shaw, is out killing the crew one by one for revenge. Worse, a Somalian terrorist called Jakarde and a shady government official called "Mr. Nobody" are both competing to steal a computer terrorism program called "God's Eye," that can turn any technological device into a weapon. Torretto must reconvene with his team to stop Shaw and retrieve the God's Eye program while caught in a power struggle between the terrorist and the United States government.
Sure, you may have to check your brain at the door, but for pure action-packed fun, it gets no better than the Fast & Furious movies. Furious 7 was all kinds of crazy fun, even though it was a bit of a bummer to watch Paul Walker do his thing, knowing that he died so tragically.
Fun stuff, and definitely worth a rental if you need an action fix.
Queen of Earth: Two women who grew up together discover they have drifted apart when they retreat to a lake house together.
This one appeared on Amazon Instant out of nowhere; we're usually on top of release dates, and had no idea that Queen of Earth had even been slated for release yet. Anywho, this one looks all kinds of bizarre and intense, and Elisabeth Moss is aces in our book, so we'll definitely be checking it out asap.
Teen Lust: An awkward high school student strives to lose his virginity before his parents and their Satanic cult can sacrifice him to the devil.
We're really hoping that Teen Lust ends up being silly fun, instead of just plain old silly. There hasn't been very much hype or promotion about this one leading up to release, but we're remaining optimistic; it's got Pam from True Blood and Carey Elwes in it, so it can't be all that bad... right?
When Animals Dream: 16-year old Marie lives on a small island with her seriously ill mother and her father, who takes care of the family. But suddenly mysterious deaths happen and Marie can feel something strange happening to her body.
Finally we have When Animals Dream; a solid little Danish "Were" flick that we saw and enjoyed earlier this year. It's definitely worth a rental, but check out our review below for a more in-depth appraisal.
