Final Girl (2015), courtesy Cinedigm Entertainment Group.

Final Girl

Final Girl is about a cute, shy girl who is targeted by a group of boys who want to use her as the last piece to a murderous game that they play.  Unfortunately for them, they picked the wrong girl to be their “Final Girl.”

Made in 2015, Final Girl is one of the new breed of script-flipping, tables-turning revenge horror movies.  It’s full of twists, turns, and surprises.  Abigail Breslin stars as the less-than-hapless girl, and two of her would-be tormentors are played by Wes Bentley and Logan Huffman.  Catch Final Girl here at TubiTV.

The Skulls (2000), courtesy Universal Pictures.

The Skulls

The Skulls is about a college senior who joins a fraternity-type secret organization, of course called The Skulls, which he thinks will help him get into Harvard Law School.  Soon enough, however, he learns that something much more sinister than academic networking is at the center of the group.

The Skulls was released in 2000, right on the tail end of the hip-television-stars-in-big-budget-horror-films craze.  This time, the cool name star is Joshua “Pacey Witter” Jackson, but The Skulls also features Paul Walker, Leslie Bibb, and Craig T. Nelson.  You can see The Skulls right here at Crackle, and if you can’t get enough of it, you can also find The Skulls II here and The Skulls III here.

The White Buffalo (1977), courtesy United Artists.

The White Buffalo

The White Buffalo is a 1977 movie about the legendary western figure Wild Bill Hickock, who has a dream about being killed by a gigantic white buffalo.  Not wanting to leave things to chance, Wild Bill heads north to hunt the beast, where he meets up with equally-legendary Indian chief Crazy Horse, who is also hunting the beast for his own personal reasons.

There’s an all-star cast in The White Buffalo, with Charles Bronson starring as Wild Bill Kickcock and Will Sampson playing Crazy Horse.  The notable support cast includes Jack Warden, Kim Novak, Stuart Whitman, Slim Pickens, and John Carradine.  It’s not as exploitive as, say, Grizzly, but it’s got some good man-versus-nature, creature-feature moments.  Check out The White Buffalo here at Vudu.

Embryo (1976), courtesy Cine Artists Pictures.


Also from the seventies, albeit a year earlier in 1976, Embryo is about a scientist who transplants a fetus into an artificial womb and subjects the embryo to a growth drug which accelerates its development so that it becomes an adult within a matter of weeks.  And, of course, the adult that it becomes is unstable and homicidal.

Embryo is one of those unsung seventies sci-fi horror movies that everyone should see.  Rock Hudson plays the lead, and the rest of the cast includes Diane Ladd, Barbara Carrera, Roddy McDowall, and Anne Schedeen.  Dr. Joyce Brothers also appears as herself.  Have a look at Embryo right here at Popcornflix.

Zombie High (1987), courtesy Palisades Entertainment Group.

Zombie High

Zombie High is about a young woman who is awarded a scholarship at an all-male boarding school.  Once there, she notices that her classmates seem like cookie-cutter images of each other.  She soon discovers that there’s a diabolical reason why.

This 1987 horror comedy is reminiscent of The Stepford Wives and is a precursor to Disturbing Behavior.  Virginia Madsen anchors the film, but the support cast includes Sherilyn Fenn, Richard Cox, James Wilder, and Paul Feig (yes, THAT Paul Feig).  If you’re not too tired of zombies, you can watch Zombie High here at ShoutfactoryTV.
