10 horror flicks worth watching on Tubi

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      You may have seen my recent lists of recommended horror movies streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

      If nothing in those wrap-ups impressed you much, here's another batch of 10 fright flicks to consider.

      Tubi is a streaming service that offers a shipload of horror flicks that you can watch instantly on your computer or phone for free. You just have to put up with the commercials--and the knowledge that the company is owned by the Fox Corporation, which brings that icky Tucker Carlson/Sean Hannity vibe.

      But who's got time for politics when there's scary movies to be seen?

      High Tension (2003) "French shocker helmed by then–25-year-old wunderkind Alexandre Aja, who would later wow horror fans with his 2006 remake of The Hills Have EyesHigh Tension sees a brave young woman (Maíwenn Le Besco) desperately chasing the brutal murderer of an entire family, with some truly disturbing sequences along the way."

      The Eclipse (2010) "With its leisurely pace, melancholy score, and low-key lead actor, The Eclipse is a curious supernatural drama that quietly lulls you into complacency. But just try holding onto your popcorn when its horrors are unleashed."

      House of 1000 Corpses (2003) "Suffice it to say that this House is best visited by hard-core horror fans who don’t care much for plot but can appreciate the cult-star casting, grisly makeup FX, occasional moments of spiralling terror, and imaginative sets. Others may feel the need for a long shower after viewing Zombie’s down ’n’ dirty drive up Exploitation Avenue."

      Backcountry (2015) “If you’re thinking about going camping anywhere bears might be, Backcountry is definitely not for you. It’s Stephen Colbert’s worst nightmare come to life, basically.”

      Green Room (2016) "Around this time the movie viciously transforms from a semi-hokey portrayal of a struggling punk band to a gritty survival-horror flick that keeps you transfixed till the bitter end, ladling on the tension and nasty violence, and offering up some of the most terrifying Rottweiler attack scenes since The Omen."

      It Follows (2015) “Every once in a while a low-budget indie fright flick comes along that makes everything on the major studios’ horror plate look like a pile of steaming crap.”

      P2 (2007) "...an old-school nail biter that's sure to make late-night holiday shoppers think twice as they push the button marked P2 on the parkade elevator." 

      The Stepfather (1987) "Before getting known for his work on The X-Files, Terry O’Quinn delivered a career-making performance as a family-values stepdad bent on living the American dream, and Lord help those who might interfere—especially if there’s a two-by-four handy."

      The Devil's Rejects (2005) "Eschewing the hallucinogenic fun-house vibe of Corpses, the freeze-frame- and shaky-cam-crazed Zombie strives to give Rejects a gritty, realistic road-movie feel. And he does succeed at creating a twisted cross between The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Natural Born Killers, with some pseudo Bonnie and Clyde sentiments thrown in."

      Frozen (2010) “Green avoids Hatchet‘s corny clichés and totally redeems himself with a harrowing portrait of humans at the mercy of the great outdoors.”
