Hey Tightwads! It’s Tuesday again, and that means another round of free movies from Tightwad Terror Tuesday! Have at ‘em.
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
In case you haven’t heard, Kino Lorber launched a free streaming service this month called Kino Cult, and the selection is killer. There’s a ton to see there, both horror and non, but we’ll get you over there with A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is about an Iranian town called Bad City that is filled with desperate criminals and hopeless drug addicts. As if that isn’t enough despair, Bad City’s citizens are also being stalked nightly by a murderous vampire.
Directed by Ana Lily Amirpour and starring Sheila Vand as “the girl,” A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is an art film hidden within the shell of a horror movie. This 2014 tale of loneliness and isolation was purposefully shot in black and white, and although it was made in America, it’s in Persian with English subtitles. For what it’s worth, it’s often billed as the first Iranian Vampire Western. See A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night here at KinoCult.
Jack’s Back is about a serial killer in present-day Los Angeles who is performing a series of copycat murders of the nefarious Jack the Ripper. When the prime suspect is murdered, the suspect’s twin brother has visions of who the real killer may be.
Sort of like The Silence of the Lambs with a psychic, Jack’s Back is an effective little 1988 horror mystery. James Spader has a field day playing both twins. Catch Jack’s Back right here at Crackle.
The Guest is a 2014 movie about a family whose son is a soldier who was killed in action. A stranger shows up claiming to be a friend of the son, and the family welcomes him into their home. Soon enough, the bodies start to pile up and the family realizes that their guest may not be who they think he is.
The Guest is the total package. It was written and directed by the filmmaking team of Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard, features an incredible score by Steve Moore, and stars Dan Stevens, Maika Monroe, Sheila Kelly, Lance Reddick, Ethan Embry, and Joel David Moore. The Guest is a can’t-miss movie, so don’t miss it here at TubiTV.
Speaking of filmmaking teams…The Endless is a 2017 movie from Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead about two brothers who escaped a cult when they were children. As adults, they receive a strange videotape that convinces them to get back to their roots.
The Endless is a trip of a movie. And, no spoilers, but it more than hints at being part of a larger universe. If weird sci-fi is your thing, check out The Endless here at Vudu.
The Invitation is a 2015 movie about a man who goes to dinner party with thrown by his ex-wife with his new girlfriend. Once there, they realize that this is no normal dinner party.
It’s hard to talk about The Invitation without spoiling key surprises, so we won’t. But whatever kind of movie you think The Invitation is, it’s a different one. It was directed by Karyn Kusama, and Logan Marshall-Green leads the killer cast. RVSP to The Invitation here at TubiTV.
