Tightwad Terror Tuesday – Free Movies for 6-14-2022
Hey there, Tightwads! It’s Tuesday, and that means free movies from Tightwad Terror Tuesday and iHorror. Let’s do this!
Doctor Sleep is the long-awaited 2019 sequel to The Shining. It finds a cult of people with psychic powers trying to gain control of a girl who “shines.” The grown-up Danny Torrance connects with the girl and vows to protect her.
Doctor Sleep was directed by Mike Flanagan, who manages to masterfully walk the line between respecting Stephen King’s book and honoring Stanley Kubrick’s filmed adaptation of The Shining (which King famously hates). Ewan McGregor plays the adult Danny, Kyliegh Curran portrays the similarly psychic girl, and Rebecca Ferguson is the leader of the cult. Catch Doctor Sleep right here at TubiTV.
Don’t Look Now
Don’t Look Now is about a married couple who, while still grieving over the death of their young daughter, travel to Venice where they meet a psychic who claims that she has made contact with their child. At first, the father is skeptical, but when he starts to see his daughter around the city, he turns into a believer.
Directed by Nicolas Roeg, this 1973 supernatural mystery is a must-see for horror fans, and it includes one of the most talked-about surprise endings in cinematic history. The cast is loaded, too, with Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie playing the parents. As if that weren’t enough, Don’t Look Now has an awesome Pino Donaggio score. Don’t wonder about it anymore, just go watch Don’t Look Back here at PlutoTV.
Saw really needs no introduction, but here’s one anyway; Saw is the 2004 thriller that launched the careers of James Wan and Leigh Whannell. It’s about two men who wake up in a dilapidated restroom, chained to the walls with a dead body between them, and with no memories of how they got there. Much of the story is told through flashbacks, and it’s a morbid tale of an enigmatic figure nicknamed Jigsaw who places flawed people in traps and gives them a choice: pay a horrible physical price, or die trying to escape.
For what was in its time a tiny horror film, Saw boasts an impressive cast that includes Cary Elwes, Danny Glover, Shawnee Smith, and Monica Potter. It’s pretty much essential viewing, so see it here at TubiTV.
Bomb City is about a group of punk rockers in Amarillo, Texas, that is constantly at odd with the jocks in town. When things boil over, one of the punks is dead and one of the jocks is accused of murder.
This 2017 crime drama is based on a real case from 1997. And it’s infuriating. While it takes some liberties for dramatic license, it’s a fairly decent snapshot of the punk subculture of the mid-nineties. Catch Bomb City here at Crackle.
Unearthed and Untold – The Path to Pet Sematary
You’ve seen Pet Sematary, its sequel, and its remake. Now, we’ve got Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary, the 2017 documentary about the making of the iconic 1989 movie. Through interviews and never-before-seen footage from the set, Unearthed & Untold tells the story of Pet Sematary, from author Stephen King’s inspiration for writing the book to director Mary Lambert’s realization of her vision.
As far as making-of documentaries go, Unearthed & Untold is pretty standard. It’s an in-depth look, but it’s mostly for hardcore fans of the movie. If that’s you, see Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary here at Vudu.

‘Fear the Invisible Man’ Trailer Reveals the Character’s Sinister Plans
Fear the Invisible Man takes us back to the H.G. Wells classic and takes a few liberties along the way by adding some twists, turns, and of course more bloodshed. Of course, Universal Monsters also incorporated Well’s character into their lineup of creatures. And in some ways I believe the original Invisible Man film to be the most monstrous character among Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, etc…
While Frankenstein and the Wolfman might come off as the tortured victim of someone else’s doing, The Invisible Man did it to himself and became obsessed with results and immediately found ways to use his condition to break the law and to ultimately murder.
The synopsis for Fear the Invisible Man goes like this:
Based on the classic novel by H.G. Wells, a young British widow shelters an old medical school colleague, a man who has somehow turned himself invisible. As his isolation grows and his sanity frays, he schemes to create a reign of wanton murder and terror across the city.
Fear the Invisible Man stars David Hayman (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Mark Arnold (Teen Wolf), Mhairi Calvey (Braveheart), Mike Beckingham (Truth Seekers). The film is directed by Paul Dudbridge and Written By Phillip Daay.
The film arrives on DVD, digital and VOD beginning June 13.
‘The Wrath Of Becky’ – Interview With Lulu Wilson
Lulu Wilson (Ouija: Origin of Terror & Annabelle Creation) returns to the role of Becky in the sequel due out on theaters May 26, 2023, The Wrath of Becky. The Wrath of Becky is just as good as its predecessor, and Becky brings lots of pain and suffering as she faces off against the worst of the worst! One lesson we learned in the first film was that no one should mess with the inner rage of a teenage girl! This film is off-the-wall bonkers, and Lulu Wilson does not disappoint!
Originally from New York City, Wilson made her film debut in Jerry Bruckheimer’s dark thriller Deliver Us From Evil opposite Eric Bana and Olivia Munn. Shortly after, Wilson moved to Los Angeles to work as a series regular on the CBS hit comedy The Millers for two seasons.
Chatting with this young and upcoming talent who has embedded her footprint within the horror genre over the past several years was fantastic. We discuss the evolution of her character from the original film to the second film, what it was like working with all of the BLOOD, and, of course, what it was like working with Seann William Scott.
“As a teenage girl myself, I find that I go from cold to hot in like two seconds, so it wasn’t super difficult to tap into that…” – Lulu Wilson, Becky.
Relax, and enjoy our interview with Lulu Wilson from her new film, The Wrath of Becky.
Two years after she escaped a violent attack on her family, Becky attempts to rebuild her life in the care of an older woman – a kindred spirit named Elena. But when a group known as the “Noble Men” break into their home, attack them, and take her beloved dog, Diego, Becky must return to her old ways to protect herself and her loved ones.

‘Cinderella’s Curse’: A Blood-Soaked Retelling of the Classic Fairytale
Imagine Cinderella, the story that children have all come to adore thanks to Disney, but with a twist so dark, it could only belong to the horror genre.
Children’s stories have frequently been fodder for horrifying reinventions with movies like Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey and The Mean One. Now, it’s Cinderella’s turn to step into this terrifying limelight.
Bloody Disgusting exclusively reveals that Cinderella is undergoing a transformation far removed from the family friendly kind we’re accustomed to. She’ll be crossing genres in Cinderella’s Curse, an upcoming horror film.
Slated to be available for sale at the American Film Market (AFM), Cinderella’s Curse is the latest offering from ChampDog Films. Thanks to the Bloody Disgusting exclusive, we’ve learned that ITN Studios is primed to unleash this chilling interpretation come October 2023.
Production is gearing up, with filming scheduled to begin next month in the UK. Louisa Warren, a name that’s no stranger to the horror genre, will be donning the dual hats of producer and director. The screenplay is the brainchild of Harry Boxley, who penned the script for Mary Had A Little Lamb. Kelly Rian Sanson, Chrissie Wunna, and Danielle Scott are set to bring the characters to life on the screen.
Warren shared her excitement for this novel take on a familiar tale, stating that it’s an incredibly unique spin on the Cinderella we’ve all grown up with. Promising a series of “truly horrific deaths by her hands,” she assures fans of gore-filled narratives that they’re in for a treat with this dark retelling.
Currently, there aren’t any official visuals available. The images used in this piece, including the featured image at the top, are fan interpretations imagining a horror-themed Cinderella. Stay tuned for updates as official images start to emerge.
