976-EVIL (1988), courtesy New Line Cinema.


976-EVIL is about a pay telephone number that doles out creepy fortunes to the people who call.  As users call more often, the number controls their souls and turns them into homicidal maniacs.  An introverted teenager falls into the trap, and his cousin must help him break the spell.

There is quite possibly not a more eighties movie than the made-in-1988 976-EVIL.  Every aspect of the movie, from the props to the effects, from the stars to the very concept, screams 1980s.  Stephen Geoffreys and Patrick O’Bryan play the cousins, and Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, makes his directorial debut with this crazy movie.  Call 976-EVIL here at Crackle.

The Number 23 (2007), courtesy New Line Cinema.

The Number 23

The Number 23 is a 2007 movie about a man who stumbles upon a novel that is based completely around numerology and the number 23.  As he makes his way through the book, he starts to obsessively think that it was written about him, and he begins finding parallels between the number 23 and his own life.

This layered thriller has an intriguing concept, but pay attention, because it gets complicated fast.  Joel Schumacher directs, Jim Carrey stars, and the support cast includes Virginia Madsen, Corey Stoll, Logan Lerman, and Danny Huston.  Oh, and keep an eye out for Bud Cort in there, too.  Count on The Number 23 here at Tubi TV.

I Saw the Devil (2010), courtesy Magnet Releasing.

I Saw the Devil

I Saw the Devil is about a special agent whose pregnant wife is brutally murdered by a serial killer.  The officer takes it upon himself to track the killer and have his revenge, but the only way he knows to find the psychopath is to become one himself.

This 2010 Korean thriller is violent, disturbing, and revolting.  It’s also a beautiful work of art.  I Saw the Devil is the best Park Chan-wook movie that wasn’t made by Park Chan-wook.  Check it out here at Vudu.

Looper (2012), courtesy TriStar Pictures.


Looper takes place in a world where the mob sends people they want killed back in time where an assassin waits to kill them in the past.  When the gangsters want to “close the loop,” they send back the assassin to be killed by his past self, and the younger killer then retires.  Of course, the killer also knows when they will be sent back to be killed themselves, and one of these assassins uses this knowledge to escape and exist along with his younger self in the past.  The assassin must hunt himself to tie up the loose end.

That sounds more complicated than it is.  This 2012 time-warp flick requires an open mind, but it isn’t hard to follow once one accepts its logical flaws.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis play the different aged assassins, and the cast is rounded out by Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Piper Perabo, and Jeff Daniels.  Close the loop with Looper here at Crackle.


The Ninth Configuration (1980), courtesy Warner Bros.

The Ninth Configuration

The Ninth Configuration takes place in a large castle that the U.S. military uses for a mental hospital.  A new officer is assigned to take over the treatment of the patients, but he’s got demons of his own, so it winds up being a case of the inmates literally running the asylum.

Written and directed by William Peter Blatty of The Exorcist fame, this 1980 drama is more One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest than Shock Corridor, but it does get dark in the second half.  The cast is terrific, featuring familiar faces like Stacy Keach, Jason Miller, Neville Brand, Scott Wilson, Robert Loggia, Tom Atkins, Ed Flanders, George DiCenzo, Moses Gunn, and Joe Spinell.  Catch The Ninth Configuration here at ShoutFactoryTV.
