Hey Tightwads! It’s that time of the week again! Time for some free movies from Tightwad Terror Tuesday. So let’s have at ‘em…
The Exorcist III
The Exorcist III is a about a police detective who is investigating a serial killer. As he learns more about the case, he starts noticing similarities with another case in which the murderer has been dead for years.
Most of the ties between The Exorcist III and the original The Exorcist are circumstantial, so it’s not a pure sequel, but this 1990 offering was directed by The Exorcist author William Peter Blatty (who also adapted the screenplay from his own novel). It also stars George C. Scott, Brad Dourif, Ed Flanders, Jason Miller, and a young Samuel L. Jackson. And it has one of the best jump scares in horror history. Catch The Exorcist III right here at Crackle.
28 Weeks Later
Tightwad Terror Tuesday has already brought you the brilliant revisionist zombie movie 28 Days Later…, and now, we’ve got the sequel. Made in 2007, 28 Weeks Later sees the zombie outbreak of the first movie seemingly under control, with the U.S. Army helping to repopulate London. During the recovery, a new outbreak occurs. But one girl seems to be immune, and the government wants to learn why.
By all accounts, 28 Weeks Later is the same general deal as its predecessor, only with a but more vitriol towards the government. The incredible cast features Rose Byrne, Jeremy Renner, Robert Carlyle, Idris Elba, Imogen Poots, and Harold Perrineau. Check out 28 Weeks Later here at TubiTV.
Patrick is about a boy who slips into a coma after murdering his mother and her lover. Years later, a new nurse is assigned to the bedridden Patrick, and the unconscious patient becomes smitten with her. He communicates through telekinesis, typing messages to her on a typewriter, but it soon becomes clear that Patrick’s obsession is a dangerous one.
One of the most memorable films of the Ozploitation craze of the seventies and eighties, Patrick is a surprisingly frightening film, considering the title character is a bedridden vegetable. Patrick was remade just a few years back, but you can see the original 1978 creepy classic here at Popcornflix.
Tucker and Dale vs Evil
Tucker and Dale vs Evil is about a pair of loveable hillbillies named Tucker and Dale (not just a clever name) who are trying to get some rest and relaxation in at their rustic mountain cabin. Their vacation is interrupted by a group of partying kids who, one by one, meet terrible demises, with Tucker and Dale unjustly getting the blame.
This 2010 horror comedy is one of the best movies of the last decade. It subverts the cabin-in-the-woods genre while eviscerating horror stereotypes one after another. It’s hysterical. You need to see Tucker and Dale vs Evil, so if you haven’t, go here to TubiTV and right that wrong.
Nina Forever is a 2015 movie about a young man who is grieving over losing his girlfriend in a car accident. Just as he starts to get over her and begins dating another girl, the dead girlfriend begins popping up at the most inopportune times, sabotaging his new relationship.
This horror comedy is a clever little zombie-ghost movie that is full of both heart and humor. It’s a horror rom-com for people who hate horror rom-coms. Have a look at Nina Forever here at Vudu.
