Twilight Zone: The Movie

Twilight Zone: The Movie really needs no introduction, but here’s one anyway.  This is a 1983 anthology of four episodes from the classic television series, each re-imaged (some a bit looser than others) for a more modern audience.  The tales included are “A Quality of Mercy” (which is the loosest adaptation, becoming “Time Out”), “Kick the Can,” “It’s a Good Life,” and “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet.”

This is a classic eighties anthology, bringing together visionary directors Joe Dante, John Landis, George Miller, and Steven Spielberg with a star-studded cast that includes Vic Morrow, Scatman Crothers, Kathleen Quinlan, Kevin McCarthy, Dick Miller, John Lithgow, Dan Ackroyd, and Albert Brooks.  The opening scene also features one of the greatest jump scares of all time.  Enter Twilight Zone: The Movie here at Vudu.

Wrong Turn (2003), courtesy Twentieth Century Fox.

Wrong Turn

Wrong Turn is about a group of young people who get into a car accident while driving through the mountains of West Virginia.  While going for help, they find themselves being stalked through the woods by a family of inbred cannibals.

Part cannibal exploitation and part torture porn flick, Wrong Turn is a dirty little 2003 thriller that has spawned a whopping 5 sequels (and counting).  Eliza Dushku and Jeremy Sisto lead the cast.  Check out Wrong Turn here at Crackle.

Paranormal Entity

Over the course of Tightwad Terror Tuesday’s run, we’ve brought you every entry in the Paranormal Activity franchise.  Now, we’ve got the 2009 Asylum rip-off Paranormal Entity.  And yes, like most Asylum movies, this is a blatant copy.

Honestly, if you take away the fact that it’s a copy of the first Paranormal Activity movie, Paranormal Entity is not bad.  It’s nothing anyone hasn’t seen before, but found footage junkies will be into it.  Have a look for yourself here at TubiTV.

The Alchemist Cookbook (2016), courtesy Oscilloscope.

The Alchemist Cookbook

The Alchemist Cookbook is a 2016 movie about a young man who lives in a trailer in the woods, his only companions being his cat and a friend who brings him supplies.  The loner is trying to unlock the secrets of a book of mystic spells, a task which, of course, goes dreadfully wrong.

The Alchemist Cookbook is writer/director Joel Potrykus’ study in film minimalism and cinematic realism.  It’s the type of movie that film students everywhere should aspire to make (and should be able to make).  And it’s surprisingly scary.  See The Alchemist Cookbook here at Kanopy.


Lords of the Deep (1989), courtesy Shout Factory.

Lords of the Deep

Lords of the Deep is about an underwater research facility that is looking for ways for humans to live in the sea after the Earth’s atmosphere has been destroyed.  While performing their experiments, the team accidentally unleashes a school of oceanic monsters.

Made in 1989, Lords of the Deep is one of the slew of aquatic horror movies that were released in the late eighties and early nineties.  It’s a Roger Corman production, and it stars Priscilla Barnes and Bradford Dillman.  Catch Lords of the Deep here at Shout Factory TV.
