Hey Tightwads! Time for another batch of free movies from iHorror and the internet. Away we go…!
Oculus is about a young man who murdered his father after the man killed his mother. He was sentenced to a mental hospital, and upon his release, his sister brings him home. But their troubles are not over there; the sister reveals that in order to break their family curse, they have to destroy an antique mirror that was responsible for their father’s madness. But the mirror has other ideas.
Although it’s his second movie, this 2013 offering introduced the world to horror master Mike Flanagan. The cast includes Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Katee Sackhoff, and Rory Cochrane. Oculus is one of the creepier movies of the 21st century, and you can find it here at TubiTV.
Love is a quirky little 2011 science fiction film about a futuristic astronaut who travels to the now-deserted International Space Station to see what repairs are needed in order to get it functional again. While in orbit, an apocalypse occurs on Earth, leaving the man stranded at the station.
Surreal and philosophical, Love is the directorial debut of William Eubank, who would go on to make The Signal a couple of years later and Underwater a few years ago. Love also includes a dreamy, shoegazing soundtrack score by the band Angels & Airwaves. This one’s a slow burn, but it pays off in the end. If you’ve got a little patience, check out Love right here at Crackle.
Contrary to what the title may imply, Found is not a found-footage horror film. It’s actually about a young boy who discovers that his older brother is a serial killer.
This 2012 offering is a very brutal and disturbing film, thanks in part to a brutal and disturbing movie-within-the-movie called Headless. The most intriguing aspect of Found is that it’s basically a coming-of-age movie, just with the main character doing his growing up with a homicidal maniac for a brother. This one’s got one of the best opening scenes in recent memory, so at least check out the first ten minutes or so. You can check it out here at TubiTV.
Bad Ben is a 2016 no-budget movie about a man who buys a house and immediately experiences strange goings-on. He sets up some cameras and discovers that his new home is haunted.
Yes, Bad Ben is a found footage movie. It’s an average-at-best offering, but what makes it impressive is that everything in the movie, from the writing to the acting to the editing, was done by a single guy named Nigel Bach. And that’s not all – Bach has made nine Bad Ben movies in mostly the same way. His perseverance is really quite inspiring. You can see all of them for free on Vudu, but it’s best to start with Bad Ben right here.
Deadware is about two friends in the late nineties who discover the magic of webcams. While chatting, they find an internet browser game, and decide to play through it together while screen sharing. What could possibly go wrong?
This 2021 flick isn’t as creative as other screen-horror movies like Host or Unfriended, but the concept is fun. It loses stream at the end, but it’s only 68 minutes so you probably have the time for it. Check out Deadware here at TubiTV.
