Hey Tightwads! Ready for another batch of free movies? Well, ready or not…here they come!
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones
In the past, Tightwad Terror Tuesday has brought you the first four installments of the Paranormal Activity franchise. This week, we’ve got the spinoff movie Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. This 2014 entry sees a shift in the paranormal activity from a suburban San Diego couple to a handful of Hispanic friends in an Oxnard barrio. The change in location and characters is refreshing, but underneath it all, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones is still a Paranormal Activity movie, so you pretty much know what you’re getting when you get it. And you can get it right here at Popcornflix.
This is not the Child’s Play with the murderous little Chucky doll. This is the 1972 movie about a teacher who gets a job at his old Catholic prep school, only to get caught up in a web of occult intrigue and violent hazing. This Child’s Play was directed by the legendary Sidney Lumet and stars the also legendary (although slightly less) James Mason, Robert Preston, and Beau Bridges. It’s a more serious movie than the eighties film with which it shares a name, so if that’s your thing, you can find Child’s Play here at Crackle.
Jack’s Back is about a serial killer in present-day Los Angeles who is performing a series of copycat murders of the nefarious Jack the Ripper. When the prime suspect is murdered, the suspect’s twin brother has visions of who the real killer may be. James Spader has a field day playing both twins in this effective little 1988 horror mystery. Catch Jack’s Back right here at ShoutFactoryTV.
Edge of Sanity
Staying with the Jack the Ripper motif – Edge of Sanity is a 1989 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde retelling with a fun twist – Once Dr. Jekyll becomes Mr. Hyde, he stalks the London night as Jack the Ripper. This one is a fun “what-if” mashup that makes a lot of sense in context. It’s also a heavily surreal drug movie. Anthony Perkins stars in the double-lead role. See Edge of Sanity right here at Vudu.
The Jaws of Death
Also known as Mako: The Jaws of Death, The Jaws of Death is about a Vietnam Vet who develops a psychic connection with Mako sharks after one saves him from the enemy. He uses his telepathic powers to help defend the Makos from exploitation by an unethical scientist. The Jaws of Death was made in 1976, just one year after Jaws, and it’s an obvious cash-in attempt, right down to the copycat title. It’s still a fun sharksploitation flick. Check out The Jaws of Death here at DailyMotion.
