Congratulations, Tightwads! You’ve made it through another week! And your rewards is this fine batch of free movies, courtesy of iHorror, from the internet to your computer.
Ghoulies is about a guy who holds an occult ritual in his family’s mansion with the hopes that he will gain supernatural powers. Instead, he unleashes a bunch of little monsters upon the occupants of the home. Released hot on the heels of Gremlins in 1984, Ghoulies is one of those tiny monster, PG-13 gateway horror movies that the kids of the day loved. You can see Ghoulies here at TubiTV.
The Breed is about a group of college kids who head out to their dead uncle’s island for a party weekend. Once there, they discover the island is not deserted; the island houses a canine training station that was closed because of a rabies outbreak, and the dogs are still there. This 2006 shocker is like Cujo on steroids. Wes Craven’s name is on it, but he only served as executive producer – it’s not a lost Wes Craven film. It does star Michelle Rodriguez and Taryn Manning, though. Check out The Breed right here at Popcornflix.
Last week, Tightwad Terror Tuesday brought you Adam Green’s most popular movie, Hatchet. This week, we bring you his best – Frozen. Not to be confused with the Disney animated feature of the same name, Frozen is about two snowboarders and a skier who get stuck on a chairlift as the resort closes for the week. This 2010 movie is a masterclass of contained suspense. Emma Bell, Shawn Ashmore, and Kevin Zegers play the three hapless winter sports enthusiasts. Catch Frozen right here at TubiTV.
Bent is an epic anthology of short films by writer/director Jason Santo. The segments in this 2004 collection run the gamut from supernatural to metaphysical, from art film to noir thriller. Bent clocks in at about four and a half hours, but the segments are short enough to keep things interesting, and if there’s one that isn’t doing it for you, you can skip it and move on to the next. Bent is available in three volumes on YouTube, Volume One here, Volume Two here, and volume Three here, so hunker down and dig in.
Set in the futuristic year of 2004 after time travel has been perfected, Timecop is about an officer in the Time Enforcement Commission (TEC for short) who is tasked with policing time travel crimes. Yeah, it’s pretty much what it sounds like. Although set in 2004, Timecop was made in 1994, so it’s kind of hilarious to see its vision of the future. Oh, yeah, Jean-Claude Van Damme plays the titular Timecop, so you pretty much know what you’re in for with this one. You can find Timecop right here at Crackle.
