This month on VOD: The latest from the makers of "Martha Marcy May Marlene," the pleasingly grisly debut from David Cronenberg's son, a Jeff Buckley biopic starring "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley as the famous musician, a mystery-ridden road story from "Upstream Color" star Amy Seimetz, and much more. Below are the 10 indies to watch on VOD this month in alphabetical order.

"33 Postcards" (April 15)
Guy Pearce headlines this heartwarming tale of a teenaged orphan from China who searches for her benefactor, Dean (Pearce), in Australia. When they do meet, she discovers that the family man Dean had made himself out to be is in fact a convict, charged with murder. What follows is an uplifting, captivating story of redemption, crime, sacrifice and love, as they both take risks and make sacrifices to connect with each other.

Where to Watch: iTunes, Amazon, Charter, Comcast, Google Play, DirecTV, Playstation, SuddenLink, Time Warner, Verizon FIOS, Vudu, XBOX


"Antiviral" (April 12)
David Cronenberg's son, Brandon, follows in his famous father's footsteps with his disturbing debut, "Antiviral," an exercise in body horror that harks back to the grisly work that put his dad on the map. "Antiviral" presents an eery future in which companies extract non-infectious diseases from ill celebrities and harvest their blood for eager masses hoping to experience a famous person's sickness. Caleb Landry Jones stars as a clinician at one such company who contracts a dying movie star's disease by accident and subsequently becomes embroiled in an investigation into the cause of her death.

Where to Watch: Bright House, Cablevision, Comcast, Cox, Insight, Time Warner


"Broke" (April 16)
Following on-the-verge artist Will Gray through the recording of his debut album (featuring production by Grammy Award-winning producer, T Bone Burnett), the documentary "Broke" chronicles the stories of artists and executives searching for ways to thrive in the face of today's music industry challenges. Featuring candid interviews with industry insiders and intimate profiles of some of the brightest emerging musical talent in the country, the film digs beneath the clichés and standard story-lines to reveal an industry struggling to find a new identity and an artist who's simply trying to establish one.

Where to Watch: Comcast, Time Warner, Cox, iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, Vudu, Google Play


"The English Teacher" (April 16)
After romancing Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the Sundance/Berlinale hit "Don Jon" (formerly titled "Don Jon's Addiction"), Julianne Moore is at it again, putting the moves on her much younger co-star Michael Angarano in the raucous indie comedy "The English Teacher." In the Cinedigm/Tribeca Film release, Moore plays a 40-year-old unmarried high school English teacher who mounts a play by a former student (Angarano), only to find herself falling for him. Greg Kinnear co-stars as the aspiring playwright's overbearing father, while Nathan Lane pops up as a wacky colleague to Moore's teacher.

"Erased" (April 5)


Aaron Eckhart headlines this breathless thriller as ex-CIA agent Ben Logan, who discovers that he and his daughter have been marked for termination as part of a wide-reaching international conspiracy. A dangerous game of cat-and-mouse ensues as Logan tries to outsmart his hunters and uncover the truth. "To the Wonder" star Olga Kurylenko co-stars.
