Hey Tightwads! It’s time for another batch of free movies from iHorror and Tightwad Terror Tuesday! Are you ready for this?
As if you didn’t know, Phantasm is about a teenage boy who discovers that sinister things are afoot at his local morgue. The mortician, a being known only as The Tall Man (played by Angus Scrimm in a star-making performance), has been doing weird things with the bodies, and has an army of slaves and deadly flying spheres that will protect him from those who try and stop him.
This 1979 Don Coscarelli joint is an absolute classic. Like, a bona-fide classic. As in if you haven’t seen it, what are you waiting for? Catch up with Phantasm here at Vudu.
In honor of the release of Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man, this week we’re going to take a look at Hollow Man. This 2000 variation on the H.G. Wells theme is about a brilliant scientist who discovers the secret to invisibility. And that secret drives him absolutely insane.
Like other invisible man movies, Hollow Man explores the dastardly side of the human spirit. Paul Verhoeven directs, and the cast includes Kevin Bacon, Elisabeth Shue, Josh Brolin, William Devane, and Kim Dickens. See Hollow Man – if you can (see what I did there?) – here at Crackle. And if you’re still wanting more, the Christian Slater-led sequel, Hollow Man 2, is also at Crackle right here.
Lisa is about a 14-year-old girl, named Lisa (so it’s not just a clever name), who enjoys crank calling random men and pretending to be an older woman who is interested in them. Of course, she calls the wrong person, and, along with her protective mother, she becomes the target of a maniacal serial killer.
This Gary Sherman film was made in 1990, and it suffers from its era. Lisa could never exist in the 21st century world of caller ID and *69. It’s still a fun little slice of nostalgia. Staci Keanan stars in the title role, Cheryl Ladd plays her mother, and D.W. Moffett is the psycho stalker. Check out Lisa here at TubiTV.
Blade Runner 2049
Blade Runner 2049 is a 2017 movie about a Blade Runner – a detective who hunts down synthetic humans called Replicants – who discovers a secret that could send what’s left of civilization into chaos. Looking for help, he goes in search of legendary Blade Runner Rick Deckard, who has been missing for 30 years.
Of course, Blade Runner 2049 is a sequel to 1982’s Blade Runner. Instead of Ridley Scott, it’s Denis Villeneuve behind the camera, and the cast includes heavyweights like Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Ana de Armas, Edward James Olmos, Mackenzie Davis, and (spoiler alert) Harrison Ford. Watch Blade Runner 2049 here at IMDB TV.
Jackals is about a family that hires a deprogrammer to help them get their son back from a dangerous cult. They kidnap the son and take him to a secluded cabin for the deprogramming, but find themselves in hot water when the cultists come looking for the boy.
Made in 2017, Jackals is a creepy siege movie, sort of a cross between Assault on Precinct 13 and You’re Next. It’s a tight, economical little fright flick with absolutely no fat on the bones. Stephen Dorff stars as the deprogrammer. Have a look at Jackals here at ShoutFactoryTV.
