Tightwad Terror Tuesday – Free Movies for 1-26-21

The Strangers (2008), courtesy Rogue Pictures.

The Strangers

The Strangers is a 2008 movie about a couple that goes to their family’s vacation home for a romantic getaway.  Once there, they find themselves being stalked by a trio of masked creeps who seem to want…something…from them.

This is one of the scarier movies of the 21st century, mainly because it’s just real enough to be truly disturbing.  Bryan Bertino makes his directorial debut here, with Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman playing the hapless couple.  This one is a must-see, so check out The Strangers here at Peacock.

Black Water: Abyss (2020), courtesy Crackle.

Black Water: Abyss

Black Water: Abyss is about a group of adventurers that decides to explore a maze of caves.  Of course, they get lost, and the water in the caves starts to rise.  And then, a hungry crocodile shows up.

This 2020 flick is somewhat of a sequel to 2008’s Black Water, although one does not need to have seen to first to appreciate the second.  It’s a cookie-cutter aquatic horror movie, part The Descent and part Lake Placid, but like most creature features, it has its fun moments.  It’s an Australian movie, available exclusively in America right here on Crackle.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981), courtesy CBS.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow

Dark Night of the Scarecrow is about a mentally challenged man who is accused of assaulting a little girl and takes refuge inside a scarecrow in a corn field.  His innocence is proven, but not until after he is hunted down and killed.  Things get supernatural when his vigilante killers are stalked and murdered, one by one, by someone – or something – in a scarecrow costume.

Frank De Felitta’s Dark Night of the Scarecrow is an overlooked classic of the horror genre from a time when TV movies were allowed to be scary.  Originally broadcast around Halloween of 1981, the movie has been ingrained into the memories of children of the seventies and eighties.  Whether you’ve never seen it before or just want to revisit it for old times’ sake, Dark Night of the Scarecrow is here on TubiTV.

The Crush (1993), courtesy Warner Bros.

The Crush

The Crush is about a fourteen-year-old girl who develops a crush on an older man who rents her parents’ guest house.  When he rightfully rebuffs her advances, she decides to take revenge on the poor guy by stalking him relentlessly.

Made in 1993, The Crush is typical of the teen horror movies that peppered the decade of the nineties.  Alicia Silverstone plays the psychotic little girl, Cary Elwes stars as the older man, and Jennifer Rubin portrays the poor sap’s girlfriend.  Check out The Crush right here at Vudu.

 

The Town that Dreaded Sundown (2014), courtesy RLJ Entertainment.

The Town that Dreaded Sundown

The Town That Dreaded Sundown is a 2014 sequel to a 1976 movie about a town that was stalked by a masked killer.  This meta reboot is about how the town embraces its past and even shows the original movie once a year, but the murderer – who was never caught – comes out of hiding to kill again.

As far as remakes go, this one’s great, as it seems to poke fun at the whole horror remake craze in the first place.  The Town That Dreaded Sundown can be found here on TubiTV.
