This weekend our own Micki Knop will be moderating this panel at ConCarolinas, and asked me to pass along some of her movie and website recommendations:
Here is a list of sites that you can view some of the best of the bad movies on. Many can be viewed on Netflix, Youtube, Hulu, and Amazon, but for some of the hokier you have to go on a search and find mission.
Before I start listing the sites though, I do want to mention that TCM (Turner Classic Movies) runs not only cult classics, but really cheesy and dated sci-fi/horror movies. The easiest way to find out when is to go to their website and check their schedule.
So here are the sites:
• Cult of UHF – The movies here include Attack of the Killer Shrews, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter, and (one of my favorites) Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. These movies can be watched either online or downloaded as a podcast through iTunes. There are around 60 movies in all on this site.
• Bmovies.com – This is an awesome website that lets you stream a ton of great bad movies for free. It has such bad classics as Creature From The Haunted Sea, to Zontar, The Thing From Venus, and Calamity of Snakes. All you have to do is sign up, and you are good to go. Currently it is free, but to keep it so they ask you to fill out a form for them.
• Crackle.com – Crackle doesn’t have as many movies as the others, but they have some you can’t watch anywhere else, such as The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became a Mixed up Zombies. Once again, this is a free site, you just have to register.
