A new DVD called John Dies at the End tells the strange story of a futuristic drug that does more than alter consciousness — it may alter your very species. If a crime drama is more your speed, however, there’s a new one of those out on DVD this week, too — check it out!

2) John Dies at the End
This movie is about soy sauce — but not the kind you put on your sushi. In this story, "soy sauce" is a futuristic street drug that makes LSD seem tame. Starring Paul Giamatti, this indie movie is perfect for those who like to take a walk on the wild side.

3) Hemingway and Gellhorn
Nicole Kidman plays a World War II correspondent who has a steamy romance with Ernest Hemingway, played by Clive Owen. This love affair provided the inspiration for Hemingway's book For Whom the Bell Tolls.
