What Lies Beneath (2000), courtesy Dreamworks/Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.

What Lies Beneath

What Lies Beneath is a 2000 spook movie about a woman who believes that her lake shore house may be haunted.  As she digs deeper into the mystery, she realizes that either she is right about the paranormal presence…or that she is slowly going insane.  Directed by Robert Zemeckis, this big-budget ghost story is one of the best movies of the 21st century.  Michelle Pfeiffer stars as the tortured woman and Harrison Ford plays her research scientist husband.  Find out What Lies Beneath right here at Popcornflix.

Krull (1983), courtesy Columbia Pictures.

Krull

More of a medieval space opera than a horror film, Krull is about a prince who throws together a rag-tag band of criminals and fugitives to help him rescue his princess who has been kidnapped by an alien Beast and his henchmen.  Yeah, Krull is one of those kinds of movies.  There’s even a super-cool magic weapon called the Glaive that is part boomerang and part Chinese throwing star.  This 1983 sci-fi fantasy flick was a bomb when first released, but it’s found a healthy cult following in recent years.  Whether it’s a smash or trash is up to you, and you can decide here at Crackle.

Witchery (1988), courtesy Filmirage.

Witchery

Witchery is about a pair of ghost hunters who travel to a hotel on a New England island to do some research.  When a storm strands them there with a handful of other guests, the group is tormented by a demonic witch.  Although it has little to nothing to do with it, Witchery is a 1988 sequel of sorts to Ghosthouse (which Tightwad Terror Tuesday covered last week), which means that it’s also an unofficial sequel to The Evil Dead (Witchery is La Casa 4, for those of you keeping score at home).  It also stars David Hasselhoff and Linda Blair, so it’s go that going for it as well.  Check out Witchery here at ShoutfactoryTV.

Grave of the Vampire (1974), courtesy Daniel Cady.

Grave of the Vampire

Grave of the Vampire is a 1974 fright flick about a child who is born to a woman who was raped by a legendary vampire.  Reared on human blood, the child grows into a young man who decides to hunt down and kill his monstrous father.  Grave of the Vampire is an American movie, and it kind of gets lost between the British and Italian horror films of the seventies.  It is, however, a clever little vampire story, and it’s worth a watch.  You can watch it here at Dailymotion.

The Babysitter (1980), courtesy American Broadcasting Company (ABC).

The Babysitter

Not to be confused with the Alicia Silverstone vehicle from the mid-nineties, The Babysitter is a 1980 television movie about a family that hires a mentally unstable babysitter who turns their world upside down.  Because it’s a TV movie, The Babysitter is a bit tame as far as horror movies go, but it’s a cool romp back to the time when television was free to be creepy.  It also features a television movie cast that includes William Shatner, Patty Duke Astin, Stephanie Zimbalist, John Houseman, and Quinn Cummings.  Catch The Babysitter here on YouTube.
