The Marsh (2006), courtesy Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The Marsh

The Marsh is about a children’s writer who is plagued by nightmares.  She discovers that the place in her dreams is a real farm, and decides to take a vacation there.  Of course, she immediately starts seeing spirits, and enlists the help of a local historian and a paranormal investigator to help her unravel the mystery.

This 2006 ghost story was written by Michael Stokes and directed by Jordan Barker.  The trio of leads includes Gabrielle Anwar, Louis Ferreira, and Forest Whitaker.  If spooky mysteries are your thing, you can find The Marsh right here at Crackle.

Terror of Frankenstein (1977), courtesy Independent-International Pictures.

Terror of Frankenstein

Originally called Victor Frankenstein (but not THAT Victor Frankenstein), Terror of Frankenstein is essentially another retelling of the Frankenstein story of a crazed scientist whose research into reanimating the dead takes over his entire world.

Made in 1977, Terror of Frankenstein is a pretty low-rent telling of the famous tale, with Leon Vitali playing the mad doctor and Per Oscarsson in the role of the monster.  It’s a little more faithful to the novel than the Universal classic, but that’s not necessarily a good thing.  Check out Terror of Frankenstein here at Popcornflix.


Tightwad Terror Tuesday for 2-27-18 – The Best Free Movies on the Web
Nightlight (2015), courtesy Lionsgate.


Nightlight is a 2015 found footage movie about a forest that is a known final destination for teens who are contemplating suicide.  Five youths venture into the forest with the intention of trying to scare each other with ghost stories and freaky games.  However, the woods have other ideas for them.

Nightlight is one of the cleaner post-Paranormal Activity found footage movies that one is bound to find.  There’s nothing incredibly inventive, but it’s a fun ride.  If, like me, you’re a sucker for mockumentaries, you can see Nightlight right here at TubiTV.


Tightwad Terror Tuesday for 2-27-18 – The Best Free Movies on the Web
Babysitter Wanted (2008), courtesy Big Screen Entertainment Group.

Babysitter Wanted

Just as the title suggests, Babysitter Wanted is a 2008 movie about a babysitting gig that has gone very wrong.  It’s starts off with the typical When a Stranger Calls phone calls and the Halloween boogeyman stalking, but soon enough, the sitter learns that there is more to the job – and the kid – than she initially realized.

Babysitter Wanted takes the lone babysitter subgenre of horror and turns in on its ear.  It’s not exactly groundbreaking, but it is full of surprises.  And Bill Moseley shows up as the chief of police.  Have a look at Babysitter Wanted right here at Vudu.


Tightwad Terror Tuesday for 2-27-18 – The Best Free Movies on the Web
Night of the Demon (1957), courtesy Columbia Pictures.

Night of the Demon

Not to be confused with the eighties gem Night of the Demons, Night of the Demon is a 1957 classic about an American professor who travels to London to investigate a supposed Devil worshipping cult leader.  He winds up getting closer than he wanted to when a death curse is placed upon him.  There’s also an awesome demonic monster.

Also known as Curse of the Demon, Night of the Demon was adapted from an M.R. James story by famed B-movie director Jacques Tourneur, along with screenwriters Charles Bennett and Hal E. Chester.  Dana Andrews stars as the American professor and Niall MacGinnis plays the occult doctor.  Catch Night of the Demon here at Daily Motion.
