What’s up Tightwads! It’s almost Halloween! And with the current pandemic situation, you can probably use a batch of free movies to help get in the mood…
Timecrimes is a 2007 mystery thriller about a man who finds a time machine and goes back one hour. He then encounters a crazed masked killer, setting off a murderous chain of events involving himself…and himself.
Timecrimes is one of the more clever time travel movies. It’s not realistic, but it is wildly entertaining. Director Nacho Vigalondo also plays the part of the inventor of the time machine. Check out Timecrimes here at Crackle.
Predictably, Urban Legend is about a serial killer who murders his victims using famous urban legends as blueprints, treating his victims like the unfortunates in the killer-in-the-backseat or the aren’t-you-glad-you-didn’t-turn-on-the-lights campfire tales.
Released in 1998, this movie is a product of the post-Scream slasher craze of the nineties, but it’s got a better gimmick than the average murderer-on-the-loose flick. Also indicative of its time period, it’s got a cast full of beautiful young stars like Jared Leto, Tara Reid, Joshua Jackson, Rebecca Gayheart, and Alicia Witt, but it also features appearances by a couple of horror legends in Robert Englund and Danielle Harris. You can find Urban Legend right here at IMDB TV.
On a grand level, Cell is about a cell phone signal that pings every network in the world at the same time, turning all users into homicidal maniacs. On a smaller scale, Cell is about a man who wants to reach his wife and son amidst the chaos of the ruined world.
This 2016 apocalyptic flick’s screenplay was written by Stephen King, based upon one of his own novels. The stellar cast includes John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson, Stacy Keach, Isabelle Fuhrman, and Owen Teague. Have a look at Cell here at TubiTV.
Not to be confused with the 2018 comedy of the same name, Tag is a 2015 Japanese film about a schoolgirl whose friends and acquaintances all seem to suffer horribly gruesome fates. And they suffer them over and over again, with the girl stuck in a weird loop of brutality that resets every so often.
Tag is a wild movie. Wild and weird. It’s not going to be for everyone, but everyone should at least watch the first 20 minutes or so. They’re worth the price of admission alone. You can watch those 20 minutes – and the rest – of Tag here at Vudu.
The generically named 10/31 is an anthology movie featuring five tales of fright featuring everything from witches to serial killers. And they’re all tied together by a movie marathon wraparound.
Like any anthology, this 2017 collection is a bit uneven. It’s pretty much five independent short films. Forgettable, but consumable. Catch 10/31 here at TubiTV.
