Hey Tightwads! Ready for the Thanksgiving weekend? Here’s a batch of free movies to help you get through the quarantining that we know you’re all doing, right?? No turkeys here. Well, maybe one…
Blair Witch is the long-awaited 2016 direct sequel to 1999’s highly influential The Blair Witch Project. It’s about the brother of the missing filmmaker from the first movie discovering a video that shows what he believes may be his missing sister. So, he gets a group of friends together and enters the woods to search for her. And things go about as well as they did in the original. And yes, it’s found footage.
Story-wise, Blair Witch basically rehashes the plot of The Blair Witch Project. Not as creative of Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, but definitely a more horrifying experience. The last twenty minutes are absolutely harrowing. Written and directed by Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard, the cast includes Callie Hernandez, James Allen McCune, and Valorie Curry. Check out Blair Witch here at TubiTV.
Comforting Skin is a 2011 Canadian movie about a lonely young woman who, on a whim, gets a tattoo. With the tattoo comes a new sense of self confidence, but there’s a price; the tattoo starts to take over her entire life.
Comforting Skin is a well-acted, slow-burn thriller that is heavy on the creep factor, simmering with both tension and energy. Pot-boiler fans will find something to like about Comforting Skin, and they can find it right here at Popcornflix.
Before there was The Hunt, before there was The Hunger Games, there was Battle Royale. It’s about a class of Japanese schoolchildren that is taken to a deserted island and given weapons and the instructions to fight until there is only one left alive. So yeah, it’s basically The Hunger Games, but way back in 2000.
Brutal and apocalyptic, Battle Royal should really be considered essential viewing, especially for fans of The Most Dangerous Game-influenced flicks. If that’s you, give it a look right here at IMDB TV.
White God is a Hungarian movie about a young girl who is separated from her beloved dog by her mean father. The dog shows remarkable resolve in finding his way back to the girl, but he is forced to do some very inhumane things along the way, and he even ends up leading a pack of murderous strays as they rampage through the city.
This Homeward Bound-turned-Cujo movie is seriously one of the best of 2014, if you can broaden your horizons as to what you’ll accept as horror. Dog actors Luke and Body even won the Palm Dog award at the Cannes Film Festival for their portrayal of the lead canine. Oh, and the hundreds of dogs that appear in the film are all real strays from the streets of Budapest, and the producers found all of them homes when filming wrapped. Open up your mind, and catch White God here at Crackle.
Clowntergeist is a 2017 movie about a college student who has an intense fear of clowns. So, of course, she finds herself haunted by a spirit who takes the form of a clown.
Yeah, Clowntergeist is exactly the movie that its title suggests it is. No more, no less. And no, Ribcage the Clown is no Pennywise. He’s not even Art the Clown. But if evil clowns are your thing, you could do worse. Check out Clowntergeist here at Vudu.
