Hey Tightwads!  Fall is here.  But that doesn’t change a thing for us.  We’ve still got free movies for you.  And here come some now…

Deliver Us from Evil (2014), courtesy Screen Gems.

Deliver Us from Evil

Deliver Us from Evil is a 2014 supernatural thriller about a New York City police officer who is investigating a series of strange crimes in his city.  When he suspects that the misdeeds may be paranormal in nature, he enlists the help of a priest to help him “exorcise” the demons.

Believe it or not, Deliver Us from Evil is based on true accounts of the cases of a real-life NYPD detective.  The movie is a spooky, if a bit conventional, combination of a crime drama and an exorcism movie.  Eric Bana plays the officer, and Edgar Ramirez plays the priest.  Olivia Munn, Joel McHale, and Sean Harris round out the cast of this Scott Derrickson-directed flick.  Check out Deliver Us from Evil here at Crackle.

Demon Seed (1977), courtesy Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM).

Demon Seed

Demon Seed is about a scientist who develops an artificial intelligence computer which becomes a little too sentient.  The computer takes over its creator’s home and office, and eventually, sets its sights on having a child with the scientist’s wife.

This little Rosemary’s Baby-meets-2001: A Space Odyssey tale was made in 1977, but with the advent of Alexa and Siri, the message is just as pertinent today as it was forty years ago.  The screenplay was based on a novel by Dean R. Koontz, with Julie Christie starring as the wife and Fritz Weaver playing the computer scientist.  Have a look at Demon Seed here at Popcornflix.

Suicide Girls Must Die! (2010), courtesy East West Media.

Suicide Girls Must Die!

The Suicide Girls are one of the most compelling pop culture trends of the 21st century.  So, it makes sense that there would be a movie made about them.  Suicide Girls Must Die! is about twelve nude internet models – Suicide Girls for the uninitiated – who gather in a secluded cabin for a risqué calendar photo shoot.  Of course, they start disappearing, and the remaining girls struggle to solve the mystery before they’re all gone.

This 2010 faux-documentary is sort of like a reality show with a horror twist.  All of the Suicide Girls in the film are basically playing themselves, and that’s really the only hook.  Aside from the Suicide Girls brand, it’s a generic slasher movie.  Get a load of Suicide Girls Must Die! here at Vudu.

#Screamers (2016), courtesy Epic Pictures Releasing.

#Screamers

#Screamers (pronounced “Hashtag Screamers”) is about an internet video company who receives a submission of a creepy video that ends with a “scream” – you know the type, the kind that’s makes you tear off your headphones in agony and frustration.  The clip goes viral, and the website wants more, so they investigate the source of the video.  Predictably, this turns out to be a horrible mistake.

This 2016 found footage flick is fun and freaky.  It’s also the perfect length (85 minutes) for a movie of this kind – it gets in, gets out, and gets it done.  You can see #Screamers here at TubiTV, but you might want to keep your headphone volume down.

 

Blood Bath (1966), courtesy American International Pictures (AIP).

Blood Bath

We’d be remiss if we didn’t pay tribute to the great Sid Haig, who passed away this last weekend.  Tightwad Terror Tuesday has already covered many of Haig’s movies, but this week we’re going way back to his first horror flick, Blood Bath.  The 1966 noir horror is about a vampire who uses his painting skills to attract women to model for him.  Once he gets them to his studio, he uses them to satisfy his lust for blood.

Haig’s part in Blood Bath is relatively small – he’s basically a sidekick for the male hero – but he commands every scene he’s in, and it’s a good indicator of the star he would become.  Catch this little piece of Sid Haig’s history here at YouTube.
