Open Windows from Cinedigm
When Nick (Elijah Wood) discovers that he’s won a dinner date with his favorite star Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey), he’s incredibly excited to finally get the chance to meet her. That excitement deflates when Jill refuses to honor the contest and all of Nick’s hopes are dashed. He’s intrigued when Chord (Neil Maskell), a man claiming to be Jill’s campaign manager, offers him something he can’t quite refuse: Chord will give Nick the ability to constantly view Jill via computer. Nick is initially reluctant but is finally persuaded, unaware that this decision will put both himself and Jill at risk.
Why Don’t You Play In Hell (2013) from Cinedigm
Master filmmaker Sion Sono (Love Exposure; Cold Fish) describes his frenzied, gleeful new masterpiece as an action film about the love of 35mm. Based on a screenplay he wrote nearly fifteen years ago, WHY DON T YOU PLAY IN HELL? is among Sono s very best work, as his trademark excess and outrageousness is infused with an affection for the previous century of Japanese cinema. This is Sion Sono with his talent and unique vision completely unleashed.

Feed The Gods (2014) from Xlrator

With Kris fiancé Brit (Emily Tennant, Jennifer s Body) in tow, the three of them head out to discover this long- lost family. What they are unprepared for though, is what exactly this cryptic small town has in store for them. Weird locals abound and rumors of a Bigfoot creature haunting the area at first seem silly… but things quickly escalate into a frantic, scary and action-packed nightmare with more than a few casualties along the way.
