So, read on so you can see what is available to rent or buy for the final days of May '14.

Now Available:

"Cheap Thrills"- Read a review or watch the trailer here. Available to buy on DVD and Blu Ray from Drafthouse Films.

"Journey to the West"- Actor and Director Stephen Chow, a huge star in his homeland of China for such wacky Action Comedies like "Shaolin Soccer" and "Kung Fu Hustle", returns with another variation on an age old story of a Buddhist monk battling demons so as to save his beloved village. Quirky but, quintessentially Chow in every aspect (this his first film not featuring him in any acting role), topped off with great slapstick fight sequences. Available only to rent on DVD and Blu Ray at Family Video, as part of the 30 day rental program.

"Patrick: Evil Awakens"- Sharni Wilson ("You're Next") plays an understanding Nurse that falls for a comatose patient who can control others psychically from his hospital bed in this solid remake of a revered Aussie cult classic. Sharp, assured and a fine supporting cast of Charles Dance and Rachel Griffiths doesn't hurt either. Available on DVD and Blu Ray to rent or buy at Family Video.

"Tim's Vermeer"- Teller, (the silent one) of the magic debunking comedy duo, Penn and Teller, directs this funny examination of Inventor Tim Denison who sets out to expose the engineered craft of art by master painter Vermeer. Complex, creative and utterly compelling in displaying how technology affects the art of our culture. Available now on Import DVD to own, one month before a stateside DVD release.

"Willow Creek"- Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait has quietly turned himself into quite the Director with his last few stellar features, such as "World's Greatest Dad", "God Bless America" and now his latest, a found footage Horror flick about Bigfoot, called "Willow Creek". A slow-burning campfire tale of a couple who seek out the mythical creature in hopes of capturing him on film. Witty, wild and wooly, this movie has lots of laughs and gives off authentic scares in a show-stopping scene that lasts for almost twenty minutes, a third of its running time. Available first on Import DVD, months before any other premiere.
