What’s up, Tightwads! It’s that time of week again – the day where Tightwad Terror Tuesday shoots a bunch of free movies at you. And here they come…
Friday the 13th Part III
Everybody loves the Friday the 13th movies. Popcornflix has just added six of the original Paramount movies, from 1982’s Friday the 13th Part III, which holds the distinction of introducing the world to Jason’s hockey mask, to 1989’s Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Takes Manhattan, which is pretty self explanatory.
The first two entries into the classic series are not there, but the rest are, so if you’re in the mood for a marathon, Popcornflix has got you covered. Friday the 13th Part III is here (although not in its original 3D format), Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter is here, Friday the 13th: A New Beginning is here, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives is here, Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood is here, and Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan is here. Have fun.
A History of Violence
A History of Violence is about a small town businessman who foils a robbery attempt in his diner one night. The ensuing news reports turn him into a local celebrity, which draws the attention of a mobster who thinks that he recognizes the hero as a man who wronged him in the past. Of course, revenge is sought.
A History of Violence is a David Cronenberg movie, but it’s from 2005, so it’s one of his later Oscar-bait films, not one of his early gooey schlock flicks. Viggo Mortensen plays the hero, Maria Bello is his wife, and Ed Harris shows up as the mobster. Check out A History of Violence here at Vudu.
Green Room is a tense psychological exercise about a punk rock band who gets booked at a Nazi skinhead club in the middle of nowhere. When they inadvertently witness a murder, they find themselves trapped in the green room of the venue with no choice for escape except to fight their way out.
Written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier, Green Room is one of the best movies of 2015. The band is portrayed by Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat, Callum Turner, and Joe Cole, with Patrick Stewart appearing as the leader of the skinheads, and Imogen Poots popping in as an unlikely ally to the band. Catch this must-see movie here at Kanopy.
Diabolique is about a cruel prep school dean whose wife and mistress conspire to kill him. The plan goes well – until the victims’s body disappears out from under them.
This is a 1996 remake of a classic French film from 1955. Sharon Stone plays the mistress, Isabelle Adjani plays the wife, and Chazz Palminteri plays the husband. Kathy Bates shows up as a police detective as well. Have a look at Diabolique here at Crackle.
Marianne is a 2011 Swedish film about a man who tries to put his life back together after the death of his wife. His rebuilding efforts are hampered by sever night terrors, as well as by a daughter who blames him for all of the family’s problems.
This one is a spooky and atmospheric tale, nothing that hasn’t been done before, but it’s original enough to raise a few eyebrows, if you don’t mind subtitles. Watch Marianne here at TubiTV.
