Indiewire has weeded through the films hitting VOD this Fall month to bring you a curated list of the 16 most worth your time. You'll find everything from a madcap comedy that features "Hellboy" himself, Ron Perlman, in drag to the debut feature from Boyd Tinsley of Dave Matthews Band fame, from the latest improvised romantic comedy from "Humpday" director Lynn Shelton to a found-footage horror movie that took Sundance by storm earlier this year and a drama that boasts Paul Dano's best performance yet.

Here are the 16 films to watch on VOD this September, in alphabetical order:

"3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom" (September 10)

If the title "3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom" doesn't get your attention, then the wacky plot should do the trick. In the comedy, Charlie Hunnam stars as the titular Frankie, a sad sack who spent his childhood being pranked by his brother, Bruce (Chris O'Dowd). After an unsuccessful one-night stand with the beautiful but sad Lassie (Lizzy Caplan), Frankie is horrified to learn that Bruce caught the whole thing on tape. Things only get wilder from there, as Frankie embarks on a zany journey to stop the tape from hitting the internet. Look out for Ron Perlman in drag (spoiler alert: it ain't pretty).

Where to Find: Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox, Verizon, Charter, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Sony Playstation, Microsoft Xbox, CinemaNow, Blockbuster OnDemand

"Butter" (September 7)

Jennifer Garner heads an impressive cast that includes Ty Burrell, Olivia Wilde, Hugh Jackman, Rob Corddry and Alicia Silverstone in "Butter," the Weinstein Company's Tea Party-lampooning comedy that unspooled last year in Telluride and Toronto. The "Alias" star plays Laura Pickler, the wife of a former butter-sculpting champion who takes a stab at mastering the craft with aspirations for political office in mind. Her chances at taking over her husband's title are threatened when an African American girl named Destiny (Yara Shahidi) comes to town armed with a winning smile and major butter-carving talent. Garner is great as a conservative housewife with a close relationship to God, and an even closer one to butter, but it's Wilde who steals the show as a stripper hellbent on making Laura's life a living hell. Why? You'll have to watch to find out.

Where to Find: iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, Playstation, XBOX, Vudu, Time Warner

"Eye of the Storm" (September 7)

If prestige is your thing, then you can't go wrong with "The Eye of the Storm," Fred Schepisi's drama based on the novel by Nobel Prize winner Patrick White and starring two of Australia's greatest living actors, Geoffrey Rush and Judy Davis, plus the legendary Charlotte Rampling. Set in the Sydney suburb of Centennial Park, the film centers on a group that convenes at the deathbed of the wealthy Elizabeth Hunter (Rampling), a once-great beauty used to controlling all in her life.

Where to Find: Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox, Verizon, Charter, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Sony Playstation, Microsoft Xbox, CinemaNow, Blockbuster OnDemand
