Hey Tightwads! Another week, another bundle of free movies from Tightwads Terror Tuesday…
The debut feature from writer/director Adam Green, Hatchet is an old-school American slasher about a group of tourists on a “haunted swamp” tour who run into a maniacal murderer named Victor Crowley.
For a debut movie from a then-unknown filmmaker, there are a surprising number of horror legends in this one, including Kane Hodder, Robert Englund, Tony Todd, and Josh Leonard. Hatchet was made in 2006, but it feels like 1983. Check it out right here at TubiTV.
As if you don’t already know, Creepshow 2 is the 1987 sequel to the classic Creepshow. It’s another anthology, this time consisting of three stories, one about a wooden Indian that comes to life, another about a group of teens marooned on a raft in a lake, and a third about a woman who kills a hitchhiker with her car on her way home (or does she…?).
The screenplay for Creepshow 2 was again written by Stephen King and George Romero, although Romero turns the directorial duties over to Michael Gornick. The stories aren’t as memorable as those in Creepshow, but the middle one about the kids on the raft is worth the price of admission alone. Especially when that price is free. Check out Creepshow 2 here, also at TubiTV.
Who’s Watching Oliver
Who’s Watching Oliver is about a mentally unstable, socially awkward young man who picks up women, brings them back to his dingy apartment, and kills them in front of his mother on Skype. His life is turned upside down when he falls for one of his prospective victims.
This 2017 shocker is a mean and nasty little movie. It’s more than just a slasher, it’s sort of like American Psycho for the digital age. Russell Geoffrey Banks turns in a brilliant performance in the lead role, Sara Malakul Lane is stunning as the love interest, and Margaret Roche is psychotic as the mother. Check out Who’s Watching Oliver here at Vudu.
Drive is a 2011 crime thriller about a Hollywood stuntman/mechanic who moonlights as a getaway driver for criminals. He gets dragged into a bad situation when he falls in love with a neighbor whose husband is about to be released from prison.
This is more of a suspense film than a horror movie, but it’s a definite nail-biter. The driver in Drive is played by heartthrob Ryan Gosling, and the cast is rounded out by such big names as Bryan Cranston, Carey Mulligan, Oscar Isaac, Ron Perlman, Christina Hendricks, and Albert Brooks. It’s also got an awesome Cliff Martinez score that will make you think that you’ve time-warped right back to the eighties. Check out Drive here at IMDB TV.
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 Vudu.
