New Streamer LocalNowBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies
I am a huge fan of free things. And when those things have a very user-friendly interface, I am a happy little camper. I was informed of a new streaming service(new to me) LocalNow.com, and I checked it out. The interface is like PlutoTV and Tubi. You can either stream different channels or go and look through their large catalog of horror movies.
Going through the lists of horror movies, I was surprised by all the different Indie and Amazon Prime movies it had. I am what you would call a purveyor of Indie and B movies. So I decided to list some of the less known but highly entertaining films they have listed. Naturally, these films are in no way, shape, or form in any order other than how they come up on my screen. Let's go over some movies and maybe find one you have not watched before.
The Night Watchmen 2016
Three inept night watchmen, aided by a young rookie and a fearless tabloid journalist, fight an epic battle to save their lives. A mistaken warehouse delivery unleashes a horde of hungry vampires, and the watchmen must not only save themselves but also stop the scourge that threatens to take over the city of Baltimore.
Do you like vampires? How about Zombies? Are clowns your favorite? Well, this Indie film combines them all. It is one of those films you turn your brain off and just enjoy.
ThanksKilling 3 2012
Fowl-mouthed villain Turkie carves through the likes of a rapping grandma, puppet, inventor, and a space worm on his quest to recover the last copy of ThanksKilling 2.
Few movies truly need to be seen to be fully appreciated. This is one. Not because of being a superior movie, but because it is the equivalent of a dumpster full of soiled diapers on fire. So bad it is good. It is one of the best party drinking movies.
Beast of the Water 2017
A research group makes a curious discovery that may lead to the fountain of youth. Meanwhile, an ancient Native American fable sends an ominous warning that those who disrespect nature will learn to fear the rain. Nature's law has no mercy.
A solid horror/SyFy movie. Acting, scenery, and monster look good for the budget. The monster looks nice, they could go with a big-budget film with it.
An Accidental Zombie Named Ted 2017
Ted knows he's not a zombie. He just picked up a "skin thing" on his vacation in The Caribbean. But his hilariously kooky family is not convinced, especially after he brings home a hot vampire he met in group therapy.
If you want a horror/romantic/comedy, then here you go. Funny and crazy love story. Plus you have Kane Hodder doing comedy. Dang nab it that is worth watching it.
Dave Made a Maze 2017
An unaccomplished and frustrated artist builds a cardboard box fort in his living room and winds up trapped with a gang of oddball explorers in a fantasy world of his own creation, threatened by booby traps and a bloodthirsty Minotaur.
Leave your brain, your sanity at the door and explore the maze. This is a surreal romp into a diseased mind. It is like a fever dream after freebasing Draino while getting a magic mushroom and acid enema. I thoroughly enjoyed this.
From Hell to the Wild West 2017
A psychotic killer has found a new hunting ground. A place where people frequently go missing. The American frontier.
I grew up on John Wayne and Clint Eastwood films, so when a western horror comes along; I am all over it. First, how is Robert Bronzi not a gigantic star in Charles Bronson-type movies? He looks like his reincarnation. Overall a solid western with horror elements.
Two inexplicably coherent zombies awake amidst a zombie attack, and decide to take a road trip to find the one's lost love, unaware they are being chased by the agents of a ruthless company with its own agenda.
It is a horror road comedy. I admit the zombie is played out, but this kept me entertained.
When Timmy's mom brings home a zombie servant, he discovers a new best friend and is determined to keep him, even if his zombie ate the next-door neighbor.
One of my favorite zombie films. It is campy, retro, and spoofs everything 1950s.
Seoul Station 2016
Animated prequel to the box office hit Train to Busan, a group of survivors deals with a zombie pandemic that unleashes itself in downtown Seoul.
Who doesn’t like cartoons(as Spongebob plays in the background as I write)? A nice prequel story giving us more background on the Train to Busan. Sorry kids this has subtitles.
Thirteen years after the "Lawnmower Killer" killed her sister, high school student Mary Graves and obsessed detective Dick Harbinger are on the lookout for the killer to reappear during the annual Halloween Pumpkin Prom.
A staple of why I am a horror movie fan and a lover of sundaes. Parody of the first generation of slasher films. Too many stars to list. Why we don’t get parody movies anymore, I love them.
Nightmares in Red, White, and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film 2009
This is an honorable mention. An exploration of the appeal of horror films, with interviews of many legendary directors in the genre.
A great documentary on horror films. Just the interviews alone are worth watching it.Share this article on:
