Hey Tightwads! How about this heat? Cool off by staying inside with these free movies from Tightwad Terror Tuesday and iHorror.
American Mary is about a medical student who is studying to become a surgeon. Saddled with debt, she winds up becoming an underground plastic surgeon who will perform all kinds of transformative procedures on her patients…as long as the price is right.
This 2012 shocker is the epitome of Cronenbergian body horror. Except that it was directed by the Soska Sisters, Jen and Sylvia. Katharine Isabelle stars in the lead role. Have a look at American Mary here at TubiTV.
The Innkeepers is about a pair of workers during the closing weekend of an old hotel. The inn is said to be haunted, and both employees have embraced the reputation. When a former actress/current medium checks in, the pair of ghost hunters decides to do a little parapsychological snooping of their own.
This 2011 Ti West joint is a pretty spooky movie. The cast includes Sara Paxton and Pat Healy as the employees, and Kelly McGillis as the clairvoyant. Watch the last shot very closely, maybe even twice if you need to – there’s something creepy there. Check out The Innkeepers here at Vudu.
Zombeavers is exactly what you think it is. It’s a 2014 movie about a group of kids who travel to a remote cabin on a lake for a weekend of sex and booze. Unfortunately for them, the lake is overrun with a horde of zombie beavers – zombeavers, get it?
This horror comedy is just as silly as it sounds, but if you’re looking for fun, this is it. It’s also a good mic drop for horror fans who are sick to death of zombies. The cast includes rising scream queens Cortney Palm, Lexi Atkins, and Rachel Melvin, and whoa! is that John Mayer? Check out Zombeavers here at Tubi TV.
Dark Skies is a 2013 sci-fi horror movie about a typical suburban family that lives in a typical suburban neighborhood. After a series of strange occurrences, the family starts thinking that they may be the target of something sinister. And that something sinister may come from beyond the stars…
As far as alien abduction movies go, Dark Skies is, well, one of them. It’s well made, but nothing that hasn’t been done before. The cast includes Keri Russell, Josh Hamilton, and J.K. Simmons, so it’s got that going for it. Catch Dark Skies here, also at TubiTV.
The Children is the story of two families who head out to an isolated country home for the winter holiday. Once there, all of the young children get sick – then turn homicidal and attack the adults.
This one is a must-see for fans of the oft-overlooked killer children subgenre of horror. The murderous kids are creepy enough, but this 2008 British film also tosses in several scenes of violence that are absolutely cringe-worthy. It also plays with the emotions quite a bit because, well, these are kids…how do you stop them from killing without committing child abuse yourself? Find out how the adults in the film do it (or don’t do it) here, again at TubiTV.
