Ready for another batch of free movies from iHorror? Well, clear your schedule. Here comes the horror.
Burnt Offerings is about a family that rents an old dilapidated mansion for the summer while on vacation. Over the course of the season, strange accidents befall the family, and the rundown house seems to regenerate itself with each one. This 1976 movie is a good old fashioned haunted house movie, full of mystery and suspense…and more than a few good scares. It’s directed by Dan Curtis, and the first-rate cast includes horror heavyweights like Karen Black, Oliver Reed, Bette Davis, and Burgess Meredith. If you’re in the mood for a different kind of haunted mansion story, give it a watch here at DailyMotion.
Here at iHorror, we’ve already written about App, but now it’s become available for those readers who don’t have Netflix or Amazon Prime accounts. In case you missed it, App is a 2013 Dutch movie about a young girl who gets drunk at a party and wakes up to a mysterious app on her phone that seems to want to destroy her life…and she can’t get rid of it. The cool thing about App is that there’s an actual app that can be downloaded to the viewer’s smartphone or tablet that syncs up with the movie and provides second-screen content during the film. It’s an interesting little gimmick that really adds to the movie. Grab your phone and experience App for yourself here on Hulu.
Attack of the Puppet People
Attack of the Puppet People is a 1958 science fiction movie about a lonely doll maker who builds a machine that can shrink people down to the size of dolls so that he can imprison them for his own amusement. It’s an entertaining little movie with some pretty fun Honey I Shrunk the Kids-style visual effects. Attack of the Puppet People was directed by one of the pioneers of the low-budget feature, Bert I. Gordon, and stars B-movie legends John Agar and John Hoyt. Check it out here at DailyMotion.
Once Friday the 13th became a hit in 1980, killer camp slashers began to pop up all over the place. In 1982, it was Madman’s turn to spill some blood. Predictably, Madman is about a wilderness camp that is being stalked by a lunatic serial killer. This one is pretty derivative, hitting all the same plot points and dramatic beats as Friday the 13th, but still manages to be a highly engaging movie. The killer-at-large, Madman Marz, is no Jason Voorhees, but Madman does star the beautiful Gaylen Ross from Dawn of the Dead and Creepshow, and that’s a selling point in itself. Madman is availableon YouTube.
Shock Value is a 2014 schlockfest about a budding filmmaker who accidentally stumbles upon a real-life serial killer. He blackmails the murderer into appearing in his next movie, hoping to make the most realistic horror film ever created, but the killer has other plans. It’s a pretty gruesome movie, but never takes itself too seriously – everything is treated very tongue-in-cheek. The movie has its flaws, but it’s an enjoyable horror-comedy; it’s very self-referential and meta, and that’s why it’s so much fun. Check out Shock Value here on Hulu.
