With almost everyone staying at home nowadays, streaming sites are getting an unexpected workout. Many people have been flocking to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu to wait out the quarantine.

If you’ve got some free time on your hands (which we all do), take some time to watch 50 great horror movies on Tubi right now!
One may think that since it’s a free streaming service, they won’t have a good catalog to choose from, but that’s definitely not the case for the tons of great horror movies to watch on Tubi.

So, read below to check out the best horror movies to watch on Tubi!
Classic Horror Movies on Tubi
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974): Tobe Hooper’s disgusting tale of the cannibalistic Sawyer Family, slashing through Texas one teen at a time!
Hellraiser (1987): The ’80s were crazy, this movie is crazier. An interdimensional puzzle box, a skinless zombie, BDSM, well dressed demons, and buckets of blood. This movie has it all.
Suspiria (1977): One of the most well-known Giallo films directed by legend Dario Argento. This colorful flick follows an American girl who enrolls in a prestigious German dance academy secretly run by witches.
Day of the Dead (1985): The celebrated followup to George Romero’s Night and Dawn of the Dead. A group of scientists and military personnel are stuck inside an underground bunker as the zombie apocalypse threatens them above.
Carnival of Souls (1962): An underappreciated black and white movie where strange occurrences start happening to a woman following a disastrous car accident.
Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988): This quirky horror movie has aliens disguised as clowns terrorize an American town.
Sleepaway Camp (1983): This summer camp gone slasher is the definition of campy, with an ending you’ll remember.
Rabid (1977): David Cronenberg’s gritty and sexually-fueled zombie movie. A young woman develops a weird growth that makes her crave blood after getting extreme surgery following a motorcycle accident.
Ginger Snaps (2000): This female coming-of-age film is probably the most refreshing werewolf movie you’ll ever see. The gory practical effects are especially good.
The Slumber Party Massacre (1982): A crazed drill-wielding maniac interrupts a sexually-charged slumber party in this classic slasher film. It also does a fair bit of satirizing the slasher genre in ways pretty ahead of its time.
