Although it really needs no introduction, NIghtbreed is a 1990 Clive Barker movie about a young man who believes that he is a monster, so he finds a place called Midian where the monsters live with the intent of hiding out there with his own kind. But he and the monsters soon find themselves wrapped up in a world of serial killers, trigger happy policemen, and vigilante rednecks who all want to see them suffer. This is the recently polished up Scream Factory Directors Cut of the film, so even if you’ve seen Nightbreed, you may not have ever seen it like this. Nightbreed is waiting for you here at ShoutfactoryTV.
Coming out of the wave of hip horror movies of the late nineties, Disturbing Behavior is about a young man who moves to a new town and starts at a new high school. He soon notices that the students are a little different, and the school has a unique way of transforming problem children into model citizens. This 1998 sci-fi horror flick has a first-rate nineties cast of both established actors and rising stars that includes Katie Holmes, James Marsden, Nick Stahl, Katharine Isabelle, Ethan Embry, Tobias Mehler, Steve Railsback, Bruce Greenwood, and William Sadler. See Disturbing Behavior here at Vudu.
Slasher is a 1985 straight-to-video cheapie about a serial killer who has been preying upon co-eds, stealing body parts and leaving strange gold medallions behind. The detective assigned to the case figures out that the killings can be traced to a satanic cult that uses the body parts for its rituals. This generically named thriller is also known by the equally-generic name Blood Cult. There’s nothing in Slasher that you haven’t seen before, and truth be told, it’s a pretty amateur production, but it’s fun in that Herschell Gordon Lewis sort of way. Check out Slasher right here at Viewster.
Tamara is about a young outcast girl, obviously named Tamara, who is killed by a prank-gone-wrong. Of course, because Tamara dabbled in witchcraft, she comes back from the dead to torment her tormenters – except, instead of the mousey nerd that she was, she’s now a sexy vixen. Made in 2005, Tamara was written by Jeffrey Reddick, directed by Jeremy Haft, and stars Jenna Dewan in the title role. It’s not exactly The Craft, but it’s a cool witchcraft revenge movie. You can find Tamara here at TubiTV.
Blood Mania is a 1970 movie about a woman who conspires with a doctor to kill her invalid father so that they can split his money. Unfortunately, when the old man dies, he leaves his fortune to his other daughter, and things get backstab-y, love triangle-y and downright murderous. Blood Mania is an American film, but has the distinct feel of an Italian or Spanish joint, so if that’s what you’re into, there’ll probably be something there for you to like. Watch Blood Mania right here at DailyMotion.
