As usual, Indiewire has weeded through the films hitting VOD this cold month to bring you a curated list of the 10 most worth your time. Your options this month include the latest found-footage horror film sure to rattle your nerves, a Sundance comedy that sees British actress Rebecca Hall play against type, a new comedy that reunites the director behind "Clueless" with that film's star Alicia Silverstone, and a period romance set on the English countryside that stars "Like Crazy" breakout Felicity Jones. Here are the 10 films to watch on VOD this November, in alphabetical order:
1

"Letters From the Big Man" (November 13) Criticwire Page

"Letters From the Big Man," an oddball and totally endearing Sundance dramedy stars stage and screen star Lily Rabe as Sarah Smith, an artist and government hydrologist, who sets out on a post-fire stream survey in a remote part of the Kalmiopsis Wilderness of southwestern Oregon. In the course of her journey, Sarah unwittingly finds herself interacting with a sasquatch man (yeah, you heard that right). Over time, the two discover they have more in common than meets the eye. And when push comes to shove, Sarah must take bold steps to protect his privacy, as well as her own.

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

"Save the Date" (November 8) Criticwire Page

This Sundance romantic comedy, which stars Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, Martin Starr, Mark Webber and Geoffrey Arend, tells the story of the extremely self-reliant Sarah (Caplan), who breaks up with her overly enthusiastic boyfriend Kevin (Arend) after a botched marriage proposal. Sarah turns to her sister Beth (Brie) for comfort, but Beth is too consumed by her own wedding plans to wed Kevin's drummer, Andrew (Starr). When Sarah realizes she's in a potentially fine rebound relationship with endearing Jonathan (Webber), she is confronted with her own mental roadblocks concerning love and relationships.

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


"Vamps" (November 13) Criticwire Page

"Clueless" director Amy Heckerling reunites with that film's star Alicia Silverstone for "Vamps," a tongue-in-cheek New York comedy that centers on, you guessed it, vampires. Silverstone and Krysten Ritter star as undead vampires frozen in their dating years but bored by contemporary metropolitan life. Under the guidance of their chief vampire (Sigourney Weaver), the duo look for ways of ending their dry spell. "Heckerling's screenplay strikes an odd satiric tone that's both sincere and sinister, as the filmmaker sinks her teeth into the myth of chic urban life and at the same time celebrates it," wrote Kohn in his review. "Compared to the market standard for vampires these days -- you know the franchise I'm talking about -- Heckerling's sly treatment of the material is a welcome cut above.
