Looker is a 1981 techo-thriller about a plastic surgeon whose patients keep winding up murdered. The victims are all beautiful models who came to the doctor for some “perfecting” work, and when a new girl arrives asking for more of the same, the surgeon finds himself in the middle of a deadly conspiracy.
Looker was written and directed by Michael Crichton, and while it’s not exactly Jurassic Park, it does share the scientific specificity in its details. Albert Finney, James Coburn, and Susan Dey all star in this one. Check out Looker here at Vudu.
A Shock to the System
A Shock to the System stars Michael Caine as an ad executive who gets passed up for a promotion. Frustrated, he accidentally causes the death of a panhandler in a subway station. He escapes scot-free, which gives him an idea as to how he can get revenge on all of those who have wronged him.
This 1980 black comedy is both horrifying and hilarious. It’s one of Caine’s cash-in roles, but even movies made for the money are gold when Michael Caine is the actor (Jaws: The Revenge, anyone?). Have a look at A Shock to the System here at ShoutFactoryTV.
House by the Lake
House by the Lake is about a mother, father, and daughter who retreat to a vacation home on a lake in order to mend fences and try and reconnect as a family The autistic daughter finds an imaginary friend who may or may not be real, thus sending the family into a downward spiral of destruction.
Directed by Adam Gierasch, this 2017 fright flick is part family drama and part monster movie, with just a splash of the supernatural. It’s a fairly typical modern horror movie, but at least it’s not a slasher or a zombie flick. You can find House by the Lake here at Kanopy.
I Spit on Your Grave III
Over the years, Tightwad Terror Tuesday has shown you where to find I Spit on Your Grave, its remake, and its remake’s sequel. Now, we’ve got I Spit on Your Grave III. It follows the same girl from the remake as she meets a new friend and helps her seek vengeance. So, it’s an I Spit on Your Grave movie.
Also known as I Spit on Your Grave: Vengeance is Mine, I Spit on Your Grave III is your fairly standard 2015 rape-revenge thriller. It’s brutal, violent…and pretty unoriginal. But hey, if these revenge movies are what you’re into, catch I Spit on Your Grave III here at TubiTV.
Not to be confused with The Triangle, Triangle is about a group of young people that sets sail on a yacht. Their boat is disabled by a storm, but they manage to find refuge aboard a deserted passing cruise ship. Only, the cruise ship is not as deserted as they originally thought.
This clever 2009 aqua-horror movie stars Melissa George, Michael Dorman, and Liam Hemsworth. It’s a twisting little thriller that runs a little long, but keeps things interesting enough to almost pull it off. It’s worth a look, and you can get that look here at Popcornflix.
