What's New on VOD This Week? (3/8-3/11)

VOD 550
*Check out all of our Release Date Pages: Blu-ray & DVD, Theatrical, VOD, TV.

Some disturbing necrophilia; an even more disturbed roommate; the last Hunger Games movie, thankfully; a Satanic Panic Thriller; a delusional guy who sees monsters; and the twisted adventures of a deaf gang in the Ukraine... this week is packed tight with solid VOD releases!

*Be sure to click the pics to rent the movies, or watch their trailers. Or both. Or neither. It really depends on your mood, now doesn't it?
"Anna Fritz, a beautiful Spanish actress and one of the most desired women in the world, has suddenly died. Her body is transferred to a city morgue where a withdrawn young orderly, Pau, becomes fascinated with her lifeless cadaver. When Pau sends a picture of the dead celebrity to his two friends, they show up at the morgue for a glimpse of the beautiful starlet. As the whiskey bottles and coke packets empty, the three friends decide this is an opportunity they can't pass up to get up close and personal with the corpse of Anna Fritz."

Dark, disturbing, uncomfortable, and heinous, The Corpse of Anna Fritz is a short Thriller that packs a lot of punch. It twists and turns, and in the end it became something more than what we thought it would be, and that's a good thing.

Rent it if you like movies that make your skin crawl.
"Obsessed with her sexy roommate, Jill violently imprisons Jennifer in their apartment in a twisted attempt to bring them closer together."

Excess Flesh looks like a twisted, nasty modern day update of Single White Female to us, and if the advance reviews are to be believed, that's exactly what it is. Bring it on.

Rent it.
"As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts, Katniss Everdeen, the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow, while all she holds dear hangs in the balance."

The final Hunger Games movie was split in two to milk as much money out of fans as possible, and the result was 2 hours worth of material that was dragged and stretched to 4 and a half hours. 4 and a half long, slow, uneventful, dull-ass hours.

I personally really liked the first two Hunger Games movies, but both parts of Mockingjay dropped the ball in a big way. What a huge letdown.

Skip it, unless you really feel the need to see how it all ends.
"A young girl is sexually abused by her father. Thus, begins the disturbing tale of a father and daughter torn apart, thrown into the center of a conspiracy that shocks the nation."

For all of its faults, Regression was a pretty good movie that managed to keep us interested throughout. If you look at it as a fictional portrayal of some very real things that happened in American history, and don't expect an all-out Horror flick, then you'll probably dig it.

See it, because it's a very solid dramatic thriller.
"Suspecting that people around him are turning into evil creatures, a troubled man questions whether to protect his only friend from an impending war, or from himself."

They Look Like People has been getting some really positive reviews so far, and so we're all about delving into its psychologically-charged waters.

See it if you like experimental Indie flicks.
"A deaf teenager enters a specialized boarding school where, to survive, he becomes part of a wild organization - the tribe. His love for one of the concubines will unwillingly lead him to break all the unwritten rules within the Tribe's hierarchy."

The Tribe is a great Arthouse Film that offers Horror fans plenty of realistic brutality, but not much in the way of story or character development. It's not a particularly enjoyable movie either, but it is one that makes a statement, and does so in a very powerful, bold, and unique way.

It won't be for everybody, and in fact, it may not even be for most people, but if you like experimental Arthouse movies that do something completely different from the norm, then it might just be for you.

Rent it if you're in the mood for something different.
