Comcast On Demand today has a batch of new offerings, including Megan Fox slinking around in Jennifer’s Body, Milla Jovovich in action in A Perfect Getaway, and the beautifully dark animated sci-fi tale 9. Check out more about each film below.


Jennifer’s Body
Diablo Cody’s sophomore screenwriting effort is this horror-comedy in which Megan Fox stars as the most popular girl in a small rural town who gets sacrificed to Satan by a rock band trying to get famous. But when the ritual goes wrong, Fox becomes a flesh-eating monster feeding on high school boys. Her best friend Needy (Amanda Seyfried) is forced to grow a spine and stop her.


9
Producer Tim Burton has helped director Shane Acker expand his original short film into a dark, scary and thrilling animated sci-fi action-adventure. Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland of everything that we once were, the last remnants of humanity are small creatures made of clockwork and rags, each imbued with a piece of their remorseful creator’s soul. 9 (Elijah Wood) is the last and most whole of these creations, and we learn about this new world alongside him as he meets his brethren – the stubbornly fearful leader 1 (Christopher Plummer), the friendly inventor 2 (Martin Landau), his nervous disciple 3 (John C. Reilly), the mute archivists 4 & 5, the crazed 6 (Crispin Glover), the badass warrior 7 (Jennifer Connelly) and the burly bodyguard 8 (Fred Tatasciore). This rag-tag group has to fight to survive against the terrifying rogue machines of war that still roam the landscape, having already destroyed humankind.


A Perfect Getaway
Milla Jovovich and Steve Zahn are newlyweds who go on an exotic vacation to Hawaii and soon find that someone in their mountain hiking party is a killer.
