Tightwad Terror Tuesday – Free Movies for 1-18-22

Asylum (1972), courtesy Cinerama Releasing Corporation.

Asylum

Asylum is one of the greatest anthology films to have come out of Britain’s Amicus Productions in the early seventies.  The premise involves a young doctor who arrives at a mental institution for a job interview, only to be informed that the former head of the asylum is now an inmate.  The doctor is told that he will be considered for the job of chief of staff if he can deduce which inmate was his predecessor.

Robert Bloch, author of the source novel for Psycho, culled together the inmate’s tales from a series of his own short stories, and director Roy Ward Baker brings it all to life – in dazzling Technicolor.  The film is full of surprises, with the wraparound story leading the audience to a Shyamalan-like ending.  Find Aslyum here at TubiTV.

V/H/S/2

And speaking of anthology movies…V/H/S/2 is, of course, the second installment in the V/H/S series of found-footage anthologies.  There are four segments in this 2013 follow-up, featuring everything from zombies and aliens to botched eye transplants and crazy brainwashed cults.

The shorts that compose V/H/S/2 were written and directed by seemingly a who’s-who of modern horror that includes Simon Barrett, Adam Wingard, Jason Eisener, Eduardo Sanchez, Gareth Evans, and Gregg Hale.  Like any anthology, the segments are a bit inconsistent, but as a whole, V/H/S/2 is better than the average collection.  See it for yourself here at Crackle.

Wither (2012), courtesy Artsploitation Films.

Wither

Wither is a 2012 Swedish movie about a couple that heads off to a cabin in the woods with a bunch of their friends.  And of course, there’s something evil in the basement of the cabin.

So, Wither is basically the Swedish equivalent of The Evil Dead.  It’s closer to the modern remake than the original, though, as it is more guts and gore than pie and chase.  Have a look at Wither here at Kinocult.

The Editor (2014), courtesy XYZ Films.

The Editor

True to its name, The Editor is about a washed-up film editor who finds himself the prime suspect when the actors in his latest movie start turning up murdered.

This 2014 schlockfest was made by the Astron-6 guys who also brought us Father’s Day and Psycho Goreman, so you kind of have an idea of what to expect from this heavy giallo tribute.  Besides Astron-6, The Editor also stars Paz de la Huerta, Udo Kier, Jerry Wasserman, and Laurence R. Harvey.  Take a look at The Editor right here at TubiTV.

 

Fear Itself (2008), courtesy National Broadcasting Company (NBC).

Fear Itself

Fear Itself is the unofficial official third season of the Showtime series Masters of Horror.  The premise is the same – legendary horror filmmakers team up for an anthology show with each episode containing a creepy, self-contained story.

This series aired on the NBC network in 2008, so it’s not quite as graphic as Masters of Horror.  The talent is just as A-list, though, with episodes being directed by the likes of Stuart Gordon, John Landis, Ernest Dickerson, Mary Harron, Larry Fessenden, and Darren Lynn Bousman.  If you’ve been pining for more Masters of Horror, scratch the itch with Fear Itself here at Vudu.
