Watch Horror Flicks Online for Free this Halloween Season

Those of you who are already aware of the free video-on-demand website Joost may have already seen this, but for those who haven't, they're doing a cool little promotion this month called Special Effects not Included: Halloween Movies.

Basically, Joost offers videos--including films--that are in the public domain, which is why they are able to offer them for free. This month, they've gathered together a wildly erratic, though fun, group of horror movies for your enjoyment.

For example, included in the bunch are Nosferatu, Night of the Living Dead and Ghidorah the 3-Headed Monster, all available completely free in their entirety. But in addition, you also have some of the most howlingly bad schlock ever committed to celluloid. Such as: Attack of the Giant Leeches (bottom-of-the-barrel atomic age radiation flick), Class of Nuke 'Em High (the movie that put Troma on the map), Fear Chamber (one of Boris Karloff's last films), Dracula vs. Frankenstein (pictured; from '60s/'70s master hack Al Adamson), The Devil Bat (obscure 1940 Bela Lugosi B-movie) and Creature of the Haunted Sea (an early Roger Corman effort).

Definitely worth a look, whether it's to enjoy a genuinely good monster movie at your computer desk or laptop, or to partake in the guilty pleasure of a so-bad-it's-good turkey. This is a pretty nifty service.

That's good to know. You can also
see free movies online at fearnet.com. They have some great horror flicks to view. I just saw Waxwork on there. Saw Evil Dead 2 on there a while back. They seem change their selection often. Hulu has Pumpkinhead and 28 Days Later among others.

Thanks for the site. I've been wanting to watch Gore-Gore Girls for a while, but haven't gotten around to hunting it down.

Sunday's looking up.
