The Grudge (2004), courtesy Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE).

The Grudge

The Grudge is about an American nurse who is working abroad in Tokyo.  When she is given a new assignment, she learns that her new charge is cursed with a malevolent spirit that possesses its victims before killing them.  The nurse has to break the curse before she ends up its next victim.

A 2004 remake of the 2002 J-horror film Ju-on, The Grudge stars Sarah Michelle Gellar in the lead role, and includes Clea DuVall, Grace Zabriskie, Bull Pullman, Ted Raimi, and Jason Behr in the support cast.  As far as early-2000s American retellings of Japanese movies go, The Grudge is one of the better ones.  Check it out for yourself here at Vudu.  And when you’re done, you can also catch The Grudge 2 here, and The Grudge 3 here, both also at Vudu.

Bad Milo (2013), courtesy Magnet Releasing.

Bad Milo

Bad Milo is a 2013 horror comedy about a man whose thinks the stress from his mundane job is giving him intense stomach pains.  Only it’s not actually the job, it’s a little demon that lives inside of his intestines and comes out of his rear end to take revenge on the things that stress him out.

Yeah, Bad Milo is a weird one.  It’s full of potty humor, but it’s also pretty smart about it.  Ken Marino stars as the worker, and Gillian Jacobs plays his wife.  The rest of the cast is rounded out by comic veterans Patrick Warburton, Kumail Nanjiani, Peter Stormare, Mary Kay Place, and Claudia Choi.  Prepare to laugh at Bad Milo right here at TubiTV.

The ABCs of Death (2012), courtesy Magnet Releasing.

The ABCs of Death

The ABCs of Death is a clever little 2012 anthology that uses the concept of the alphabet as its backbone.  Each story is inspired by a different letter, from A to Z.

Obviously, there are 26 segments to the movie, some of which are directed by notable horror filmmakers like Ben Wheatley, Adam Wingard, Nacho Vigalondo, Jason Eisener, Angela Bettis, and Ti West (although West’s “M is for Miscarriage” is a complete phone-in).  The highlight is Marcel Sarmiento’s “D is for Dogfight.”  Sift through The ABCs of Death here at TubiTV.

Blackenstein (1973), courtesy Prestige Pictures.


Just as one might suspect from the title, Blackenstein is a blacksploitation retelling of the old Frankenstein story.  In it, a Vietnam veteran loses his limbs to a land mine, and a mad scientist/brilliant doctor helps put him back together.  If you’re familiar with the Mary Shelley tale, then you know the rest.

Sometimes known by the less-awesome title Black Frankenstein, Blackenstein is a 1973 cult classic of groovy proportions.  Not terribly inventive, but very fun.  Have a ball with Blackenstein here at Kanopy.

Doppelganger (1993), courtesy The Sci-Fi Channel.


Made in 1993, Doppelganger is about a man who rents a room to a woman who has a seedy past.  He starts an affair with her, but that past catches up to her when the woman’s alter-ego – her doppelganger (so it’s not just a clever name) – shows up.

Doppelganger is, quite simply, good pulpy fun.  Drew Barrymore stars as the mysterious woman, George Newbern plays the man who rents her a room, and the support cast includes such familiar names as Sally Kellerman, Dennis Christopher, Leslie Hope, Peter Dobson, and Sean Whalen.  See double with Doppelganger, right here at ShoutFactoryTV.
