Hey Tightwads! Are you ready for more free movies? Check out these cheap chills and thrifty thrills…
Grand Piano is a 2013 movie about a world-class pianist who is set to perform for the first time in public since an infamous bout with stage fright crippled his career. He sits down to play the complicated piece of music, and…his sheet music contains a note saying that if he makes a mistake, he will be shot dead by a sniper.
Sure, it’s basically the plot of Phone Booth, but Grand Piano is suspenseful enough to pull it off. Elijah Wood stars as the pianist and John Cusack plays the sniper. This one was also written by Damien Chazelle, who would go on to bigger things like 10 Cloverfield Lane, Whiplash, and La La Land. Have a look at Grand Piano here at TubiTV.
Also from 2013, Anna is about a “memory detective” who is asked to go into the subconscious mind of a 16-year-old girl who has stopped eating. Unfortunately, once he taps into her psyche, he realizes that the girl has bigger problems.
Anna is one of those not-quite futuristic sci-fi thrillers that is more psychological than visceral. Taissa Farmiga stars in the titular role, and Mark Strong plays the detective who pries into her memories. Check out Anna here at Popcornflix.
Run, Angel, Run!
Run, Angel, Run! is a 1969 biker-sploitation movie about a motorcycle gang member who is offered a bunch of money by a magazine to help author a tell-all article about the inner workings of the club. The guy takes the dough, and predictably, he and his girlfriend have to go on the run from the justifiably angry motorcycle gang.
This movie is pretty much exactly what anyone would expect an exploitation action movie about bikers from 1969 would be. It’s also the first film from director Jack Starrett, who would go on to make Race with the Devil and Cleopatra Jones. You can see Run, Angel, Run! here at ShoutFactoryTV.
I Saw What You Did
I Saw What You Did is a 1988 television movie remake of the 1965 Joan Crawford/William Castle flick about a pair of teenage girls who spend an evening making prank calls. Things go horribly wrong for them when they dial up the wrong guy.
This one has television movie written all over it. It was directed by Fred Walton, who also did When a Stranger Calls, and stars Shawnee Smith, Tammy Lauren, Candace Cameron, and both Robert and David Carradine. It’s typical teenage horror stuff, but it’s a lot of fun. Catch I Saw What You Did right here on YouTube.
Towards the beginning of this year, Tightwad Terror Tuesday showed you where to find the Saw movies – all except for Saw II. Now, we’re righting that wrong. This 2005 sequel finds a group of people stuck in a booby-trapped maze of a warehouse who not only have to figure a way out, but also determine the link between them that brought them there in the first place.
Since the Saw movies get progressively worse, Saw II is the second best movie in the series. This particular entry was directed by Darren Lynn Bousman from a script he co-wrote with Leigh Whannell. And, like I Saw What You Did and several of the other Saw movies, Shawnee Smith stars in it. You already know if you want to see a Saw movie, so if you do, you can find Saw II right here at Vudu.
