Tightwad Terror Tuesday – Free Movies for 7-14-20

Evil Dead (2013), courtesy TriStar Pictures.

Evil Dead

In the past, Tightwad Terror Tuesday has featured both The Evil Dead and Evil Dead II.  This week, we’ve got Evil Dead, the intense remake from 2013 (note the lack of the word “The” in the title).  The basic premise is the same – a group of young people go out to a cabin in the woods and encounter unspeakable evils when they find a strange book in the basement.

However, this is not your father’s Evil Dead.  Directed by Fede Alvarez, this reboot strips away any and all humor from the original, leaving just a brutally violent telling of the tale.  Jane Levy stands out as the Bruce Campbell-esque character, the final girl if you will.  This is one of the best horror remakes of all time, so if you haven’t seen it, remedy that situation right here at TubiTV.

Compliance (2012), courtesy Magnolia Pictures.

Compliance

Compliance is about a fast food restaurant that receives a call from a policeman in the middle of a busy Friday night shift that accuses one of the cashiers of being a thief.  The manager on duty pulls the suspect aside, and the officer on the phone requests that the girl is detained and searched.  As the conversation goes on, the demands get more invasive.  It almost seems as if the “cop” may not be a cop after all…

This 2012 movie will make you need a shower.  It’s a deeply disturbing movie, made even more upsetting by the fact that it’s closely based on a real case.  Dreama Walker plays the accused, Ann Dowd is the manager, and Pat Healy portrays the “officer.”  If you’ve got the stomach for it, you can find Compliance here at Popcornflix.

Life (2017), courtesy Columbia Pictures.

Life

Life is a 2017 movie about a team of scientists aboard the International Space Station that retrieves a sample from Mars that seems to contain a single-cell organism.  Excited by the prospect of having discovered life on another planet, the team continues their research.  But the life form may be a little smarter than a single-cell organism should be.

Life has been misconstrued as both an Alien movie and a Venom prequel.  It’s neither, but the comparisons are grounded in reality.  Life also boasts an all-star cast that includes Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Rebecca Ferguson.  Check out Life here at IMDB TV.

Intensive Care (2018), courtesy GKG Productions.

Intensive Care

Intensive Care is about a young live-in nurse who cares for an elderly woman.  When a group of thugs breaks into the woman’s house, the nurse must do things that are not in her job description to protect herself and her charge from the trio of criminals.

Made in 2018, Intensive Care is more of a tense crime thriller than a horror movie.  It’s a thrilling ride nonetheless, full of violence and suspense.  Catch Intensive Care here at TubiTV.

 

To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story (2017), courtesy Epic Pictures Releasing.

To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story

To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story is a 2017 documentary about, of course, the life and career of famous (and infamous) horror icon Kane Hodder.  Through interviews with the man and his colleagues, it covers basically his entire career, from his days as a stuntman to his life-changing portrayals of Jason Voorhees.

To Hell and Back is more than just a behind-the-scenes movie or a career retrospective.  With full cooperation from Hodder himself, this movie winds up being a deep and powerful experience, even touching at times.  Hearing Hodder talk about the fire stunt accident that almost killed him and how he came back from it is nothing short of tearjerking.  To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story is essential viewing, and you can do that viewing here at Crackle.
