What’s up, Tightwads? Ready for another bundle of free movies? Ready or not, here they come…
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Just as the title implies, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is an adaptation of the essential Jane Austin novel about five sisters who navigate life and love in 19th century England. Except, in this version, they also have to fight off hordes of zombies.
This 2016 mashup is more of an action flick than a love story or a horror movie. The sisters are played by Lily James, Bella Heathcote, Suki Waterhouse, Ellie Bamber, and Millie Brady, and the rest of the cast is rounded out by Charles Dance, Lena Headey, Jack Huston, Sam Riley, and Douglas Booth. This one is an interesting experiment, if you’re not too fatigued by zombies. Check out Pride and Prejudice and Zombies here at Crackle.
Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse
Speaking of zombie fatigue…Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is about a group of aging boy scouts that goes on one last campout with their troop. When they stumble upon a zombie outbreak, the task of saving the town falls upon them.
Everything you need to know about this 2015 horror comedy is in the title. The scouts are played by Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, David Koechner, and Joey Morgan, and other townspeople are played by the likes of Cloris Leachman, Halston Sage, Sarah Dumont, and Patrick Schwarzenegger. Once again, this one is fun, provided you’re not sick and tired of zombies by now. Have a look at Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse here at Popcornflix.
Boogie Nights is a 1997 movie about the rise and fall of a young man who decides to break into the Los Angeles adult film industry in the 1970s. His success is as enormous as his…assets…but along with all of the sex, money, and fame, he also experiences all of the drugs and violence.
While Boogie Nights is not a horror movie in the traditional sense, it is pretty horrific, especially once it gets past the partying of the seventies and finds itself in the desolation of the eighties. The all-star cast includes Burt Reynolds, Mark Wahlberg, Julianne Moore, Heather Graham, John C. Reilly, William H. Macy, Philp Seymour Hoffman, Don Cheadle, and the list goes on and on…real-life adult film star Nina Hartley even makes an appearance. Boogie Nights is simply one of the best movies ever made, horror or not, so if you haven’t seen it, fix that error here at Vudu.
Laserblast is about an outcast teenager who stumbles upon the scene of some kind of alien assassination. He finds the discarded laser gun of the victim and takes it. The weapon transforms the young man into a psychotic killing machine who uses his newfound power to crush his enemies.
Made in 1978, Laserblast is a Charles Band Production, so it’s cheap and dirty. It’s also remarkably fun, full of cool stop motion aliens and low-budget laser explosions. See this seventies sci-fi b-movie here at TubiTV.
The Devil Bat
The Devil Bat stars the one and only Bela Lugosi as a mad scientist who has figured out a way to get a giant bat to attack his enemies. A newspaper reporter and his trusty photographer sidekick are on to him, though, and they decide to kill two birds – or bats – with one stone by catching him and getting the scoop on the story.
The Devil Bat is Lugosi just as his career started to decline, and his performance is campy in its Dracula-ness. And the bat itself is…freaking hilarious. The Devil Bat wants to be a Universal Horror movie, but instead it winds up as much more of a William Castle joint. Catch The Devil Bat here at YouTube.
