What's New on VOD This Week? (5/31-6/3)

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

A new and different Cloverfield fix; some creepy road stalking; some party kids take the wrong drug and pay for it; Mark Strong in space; a girl goes camping; Gerard Butler vs. terrorists abroad; and a Bava remake that looks pretty good... there are 7 new movies hitting VOD this week, and they all look watchable, at the very least.

*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?

"After surviving a car accident, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) wakes up to find herself in an underground bunker with two men. Howard (John Goodman) tells her that a massive chemical attack has rendered the air unbreathable, and their only hope of survival is to remain inside. Despite the comforts of home, Howard's controlling and menacing nature makes Michelle want to escape. After taking matters into her own hands, the young woman finally discovers the truth about the outside world."

An exciting, absorbing movie, 10 Cloverfield Lane sucked us in from the get-go, kept us at full attention until the end, and then left us wanting more. If you didn't get the chance to see this one when it was in theaters, you should definitely check it out now that it's on VOD.


"In a small New Mexico town, a 17-year-old high school girl who just got her driver's license gets into her first fender bender, innocently exchanging her personal information with an apologetic stranger. Later that stormy night, she is joined in her desolate suburban home by a couple of her school friends who try their best to make a night out of it, only to be visited by the stranger she so willingly handed all of her information to - a terrifying and bizarre serial killer who stalks the country's endless miles of roads and streets with his old rusty car, hungrily searching for his next unsuspecting victim."

Scream Factory has teamed up with Chiller TV to produce an original movie, and it doesn't look too bad. Even if it ends up being underwhelming, we'll give it a look because Scream Factory has given us so many excellent Blu-ray releases over the past few years, that we kind of owe it to them to give their first-ever original film the benefit of the doubt.

*Fender Bender is a Chiller TV Exclusive, so, you'll have to subscribe to the channel if you want to watch it.

"A weekend getaway takes a dangerous turn when a mysterious nightclub owner (Pierce Brosnan) introduces a group of friends to a new designer drug. Stripped of their inhibitions, they start living out their wildest fantasies - but what starts out as a fun night of partying quickly turns deadly, as the island paradise deteriorates into a tropical madhouse. URGE also stars Justin Chatwin, Ashley Greene, Alexis Knapp, Bar Paly, Chris Geere, Nick Thune, and Danny Masterson."

The trailer for Urge looks slick, and the movie is filled with all kinds of talent (sexy, sexy talent), so we'll give it a go. After all, seeing Pierce Brosnan playing a devilish bad guy can't be all bad, can it?

  • Approaching the Unknown looks like it's going to be an intense Sci-Fi Thriller along the lines of that stupid move where Sandra Bullock was trapped in space, only better. We love Mark Strong, and we're pretty sure that he can carry a movie like this all alone, so we're all for it. Rent it, because it's Mark Strong in space.
  • Good, bad, or otherwise, Girl in Woods is streaming for free for Amazon Prime Members, so even if it sucks, it's free. It doesn't look to bad though. Rent it, because it's (potentially) free.
  • London Has Fallen is one that we'll probably check out when we get some free time, as we're always up for a big, stupid action flick, and the first one wasn't bad at all. Rent it if you like that sort of thing.
  • A French remake of the 1974 Mario/Lamberto Bava heist-gone-wrong flick, Rabid Dogs looks like it's going to be right up our alley. Rent it if you don't mind subtitles.

  1. Watched Urge tonight. Bizarre. It is almost like two movies in one, a sex/drug-fueled psychedelic trip turned horror movie of sorts. Even though it was most definitely uneven, I enjoyed it.
