Hey, Tightwads! It’s the end of the month, and Tightwad Terror Tuesday is going to help you make rent with another batch of free movies, straight from the internet to your eyeballs. And here they are…
John Dies at the End
John Dies at the End is about a hip new drug called Soy Sauce that sends its user to another dimension – literally. Unfortunately, they come back…different. A pair of slackers are tasked with saving the world from the evil drug.
This 2012 sci-fi/horror/comedy was written and directed by Don Coscarelli and based on a novel by Cracked.com writer David Wong. It’s a crazy diversion that is just as weird as it sounds. The lead roles are played by Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes, and viewers will also recognize faces like Angus Scrimm, Doug Jones, Paul Giamatti, and Clancy Brown in the cast. Dip into John Dies at the End here at Vudu.
Hell House LLC
Hell House LLC is about a documentary crew that is investigating a horrible tragedy that took the lives of 15 people in a Halloween Haunted House 5 years before. Through interviews, archival materials, and site visits, the filmmakers find themselves reliving the horror of that fateful night.
Of course, this 2012 fright flick is a found footage movie, but don’t hold that against it; the concept lends itself well to the style, so it’s one of the more effective faux-documentaries out there. Have a look at Hell House LLC here at Popcornfllix.
An American Werewolf in Paris
A 1997 sequel to 1981’s An American Werewolf in London, An American Werewolf in Paris is about an American tourist who meets a young woman in France who happens to be the child of the werewolf from the first movie. He is transformed into a werewolf and finds himself caught in a battle between the young woman who can teach him to control his lycanthropy and a secret society that seeks to exploit it.
An American Werewolf in Paris shares many plot elements and gimmicks with An American Werewolf in London, but there’s enough freshness there to warrant a watch. The CG effects are more modern, and therefore, not quite as much fun. The cast includes Tom Everett Scott, Julie Delpy, and Julie Bowen. Check out An American Werewolf in Paris here at IMDB Freedive.
The Haunting of La Llorona
This is not The Curse of La Llorona, the newest movie in the Conjuring-verse. This is The Haunting of La Llorona, a similar movie that rides the coattails of that movie by exploiting the public domain rights of a campfire ghost story. The story deals with the same wailing woman spirit that seeks to replace her dead children with the souls of whatever kids she can find.
Amazingly enough, this 2019 mockbuster was not made by The Asylum. It’s just a movie that aims to confuse audiences into watching by calling itself something close to a slick new horror movie. It’s not a bad movie, just unfortunately timed. If The Curse of La Llorona didn’t satisfy your wailing woman thirst, you can find The Haunting of La Llorona here at TubiTV.
Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary
You’ve seen Pet Sematary, its sequel, and its remake. Now, we’ve got Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Sematary, the 2017 documentary about the making of the iconic 1989 movie. Through interviews and never-before-seen footage from the set, Unearthed & Untold tells the story of Pet Sematary, from author Stephen King’s inspiration for writing the book to director Mary Lambert’s realization of her vision.
As far as making-of documentaries go, Unearthed & Untold is pretty standard. It’s an in-depth look, but it’s mostly for hardcore fans of the movie. If that’s you, see Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary here at Popcornflix.
