Hey Tightwads! It’s Tuesday, and that means free movies from Tightwad Terror Tuesday! Let’s get to ’em…
Brightburn is about an alien child who is found on Earth and adopted by parents. As he grows up, the parents learn that he holds dangerous powers. If that sounds like the origin of Superman to you, you’re right. It’s basically that story, only the young Clark Kent uses his powers for evil instead of good.
This 2019 anti-superhero movie is both fantastical and brutal. Jackson A. Dunn plays the kid, while Elizabeth Banks and David Denman portray the parents. Check out Brightburn here at TubiTV.
Destroy All Monsters
Destroy All Monsters is a Godzilla fan’s dream. The 1968 film is set in 1999 (gotta love living in the “post-future”), and all of the world’s monsters, including Godzilla, have been gathered and imprisoned on an island for research purposes. An alien race takes control of the monsters and forces them to attack major world cities until the human race surrenders.
Like most of the old Toho monster movies, Destroy All Monsters was directed by the legendary IshirÃ´ Honda and stars the one and only Haruo Nakajima as the big guy himself, Godzilla. For Kaiju fans, this is the ultimate movie, culminating in a no-holds-barred battle royal that features Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and a bunch of others. Awesome stuff. Enjoy Destroy All Monsters here at Crackle.
Hate Crime is a 2012 found footage movie about a Jewish family that is having a birthday party for their youngest child. In the middle of the festivities, three Neo-Nazis break into their home and proceed to torment and torture the family. And they keep the video camera rolling the whole time.
So, Hate Crime is exactly what the title suggests. It’s a flawed film, but the found footage aspect makes it horrifying in its own way. Witness Hate Crime here at TubiTV.
Itsy Bitsy is about a live-in caregiver who relocates with her two children to the home of her elderly patient. They soon learn that they also share the house with a giant monster spider. And the spider isn’t exactly friendly.
This 2019 movie is a creature feature on the surface, but it’s also an intense family drama. With a giant spider. And giant spiders are always fun. Catch Itsy Bitsy here at PeacockTV.
V/H/S: Viral is the third entry into the V/H/S found footage anthology movie series. This 2014 sequel includes stories about psychotic magicians, portals to other dimensions, and skate punks fighting conjured skeletal demons.
The V/H/S movies are all kind of hit and miss, and this one is no different. The strongest segment is director Gregg Bishop’s crazy illusionist story. The other two segments are directed by Nacho Vigalondo, and Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Check out V/H/S Viral here at Vudu.
