What's New on VOD for the Week Ending September 4th?
September starts off pretty busy on the VOD front with 9 new movies of note for Horror fans to stream, with Backcountry, The Harvest, and For Elisa being the best of them. You could probably add The Blood Lands to that list too.

  • The Harvest (Review) and Backcountry (Review), both of which were on VOD earlier in the year to coincide with their theatrical releases, are now back on VOD in permanent fashion. 
  • Exeter (Review), which has been available on DirecTV since July, is now available on VOD everywhere.

Bloodsucking Bastards: Evan must find a way to stop the evil brewing amidst the cubicles at work, rescue his workplace pals, and win back his girlfriend before his life and career go from dead-end to dead.

Bloodsucking Bastards looks like it might be fun, even though the trailer didn't blow us away. It's got Pedro Pascal (Narcos, Game of Thrones) playing a vampire, so we have to at least give it a chance, because that guy rocks.
Contracted: Phase II: Riley searches for a cure to the virus that took over Samantha before it consumes him and the entire world.

We weren't exactly fans of the first Contracted (Review), so I don't have much faith that we're going to enjoy the sequel all that much. You never know though, this could be a rare instance where a sequel is better than its predecessor, but that's us being extremely optimistic.

We'll probably wait to see this one until it hits Netflix.
For Elisa: Para Elisa is a terrifying story based on a simple, innocent children's game. Something that looks naive and harmless turns into the worst nightmare, into the struggle to escape a tragic and expected end, into an explicit and inevitable horror.

Para Elisa is a Spanish movie that looks fairly disturbing, and so we're all kinds of curious to check it out. This one is probably going on our Amazon Watchlist sometime today.
Poltergeist: A family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces must come together to rescue their youngest daughter after the apparitions take her captive.

If you're really curious to see this one, then go ahead and give it a rent, but you're honestly better off watching the original, and forgetting that this tepid, lame-ass remake even exists.

Feel free to read our review for our scathing take on the movie.
Run, Hide, Die: On the anniversary weekend of the death of a young women's husband, five girls head out to a cabin to help their friend move past her husband's death. As the party continues a dark secret begins to unravel and a hideous past crawls out to seek revenge.

It looks cheap, and it could end up being shitty, but aside from the chick with the wonky haircut, the trailer didn't look all that bad. Are we forking over $5 to watch it? I don't know. Probably not. For fans of cheap, Backwoods Horror flicks though, Run, Hide, Die might just do the trick.
The Blood Lands: It's Ed and Sarah's first night at their new home - an isolated farmhouse on the Scottish borders. This should be a new beginning away from their stressful London lives. And at first it is; come sunset they fall in love all over again on a wander in the woods. But as darkness falls, Sarah suspects they're not alone, Ed goes to investigate and quickly, the evening becomes a nightmare.

It was called White Settlers before it was The Blood Lands; not sure why they changed the title, but there it is. No matter the title though, this is a decent enough little Home Invasion movie, even if it does have a few issues.
