Ticks (1993), courtesy Republic Pictures.


Ticks is a 1993 movie about a group of delinquent teenagers that is sent into the wilderness with a pair of social workers in order to reconnect with nature.  Nature proves to be more than they can handle when they find that their camping area is overrun by giant mutant ticks.

This buggy creature feature was directed by Tony Randel and stars Rosalind Allen and Peter Scolari as the social workers, and Seth Green, Ami Dolenz, and Alfonso Ribeiro as the kids.  Keep an eye out for a Clint Howard sighting, too.  Check out Ticks here at Vudu.

Half Light (2006), courtesy Lakeshore Entertainment.

Half Light

Half Light is about a successful writer who moves to a quaint little village on the Scottish coast to mourn the death of her son while finishing her current book.  The ghosts of her past have followed her there, though, and the novelist struggles with her sanity as she tries to figure out if what she sees is real or if it’s all in her head.

This 2006 movie is one of those ghost stories that is more of a mystery than a horror flick.  Still has its spooky moments, though.  Demi Moore stars as the novelist, and the whole shebang was written and directed by Craig Rosenberg.  Have a look at Half Light here at Popcornflix.

The Mind’s Eye (2015), courtesy RLJ Entertainment.

The Mind’s Eye

The Mind’s Eye is about a pair of psychokinetics who are being held captive by a mad scientist who wants to harvest their powers for his own needs.  When they escape, the doctor tracks them down to recapture them.  But the psychics aren’t going to go back quite so easily.

This 2015 sci-fi thriller is like a missing Scanners sequel.  Only it’s better than any of the real Scanners sequels.  Joe Begos wrote and directed the film, and the psychic duo is portrayed by Graham Skipper and Lauren Ashley Carter.  The inimitable Larry Fessenden pops in for a visit, too.  Catch The Mind’s Eye here at TubiTV.

Lizzie (2012), courtesy Dark Morgue Pictures.


Although Lizzie deals with similar content, this is not the 2018 movie of the same name.  This Lizzie is about a young woman who suffers from childhood amnesia.  When she inherits a new house, she starts remembering her childhood.  She also starts having horrifying visions of the Lizzie Borden murders from over a hundred years ago.

Made in 2012, this Lizzie predates the Hilary Swank/Kristen Stewart movie by a good 6 years.  This one is more exploitative, but also less speculative.  Corbin Bernsen plays a psychiatrist, and Gary Busey shows up as Lizzie Borden’s father.  You can find Lizzie here at TubiTV.


Ghost Rider (2007), courtesy Sony Pictures Releasing.

Ghost Rider

With all the hype around the Marvel Universe lately, everyone seems to forget about Ghost Rider.  This 2007 flick is about a daredevil motorcyclist who makes a pact with the devil to become the Ghost Rider, an ominous presence who wanders the earth collecting souls.  The devil betrays the Rider, but offers him back his soul if he will hunt down and defeat his nemesis.

All you need to know about Ghost Rider is that it stars Nicolas Cage.  It’s that kind of movie.  It also stars Peter Fonda, Eva Mendes, Sam Elliot, and Wes Bentley.  If you’re tired of the modern Marvel madness, the alternative is right here at Crackle.
