Comcast On Demand today has a whole slew of new offerings for your weekend viewing pleasure. We’ve got Larry David grumping around for Woody Allen in Whatever Works, horrors abounding for pretend in the demon flick The House of the Devil and for real in the economic collapse doc Collapse, and the compelling baseball drama Sugar. Get more info below.


Whatever Works
Larry David stars in Woody Allen’s latest as Boris, a bitter, cynical old atheist ex-scientist who complains non-stop about the meaninglessness of everything while ostensibly teaching chess to kids, and who reluctantly forms a weird friendship with a young runaway (Evan Rachel Wood).


The House of the Devil
A horror fllm set during the 1980s wherein a college student desperate for cash in order to keep her apartment takes a babysitting job at a huge, creepy and secluded house. When she finds out the ‘baby’ is actually the elderly mother-in-law of the eerie Mr. Ulman, she still takes the job once he offers her a pay raise. Even though they need her services so that he and his wife might go out and celebrate the lunar eclipse – which is really just a bad sign all around.


Collapse
A documentary look at the life of Michael Ruppert, a former Los Angeles police officer who became an independent reporter who managed to map out the way the world works so well that he accurately predicted the collapse of the global economy.

Collapse


Sugar
The story of a Dominican pitcher named Miguel Santos attempting to come to America and succeed in Major League Baseball in order to help support his impoverished family.
