Just in time for Halloween – B movies! And I mean FREE B movies that you can watch online.

In addition to full length horror and sci-fi movies, they also have Kung-Fu and westerns.

The first thing I noticed was the full length version of Asylum. My mother, who raised me on horror movies, took me to see this film in the theater when I was ten.

A young psychiatrist interviews four inmates in a mental asylum to satisfy a requirement for employment. He hears stories about 1) the revenge of a murdered wife, 2) a tailor who makes a suit with some highly unusual qualities, 3) a woman who questions her sanity when it appears that her brother is conspiring against her, and 4) a man who builds tiny toy robots with lifelike human heads.

I have not seen this movie since 1972, but I can still recall vividly the severed hand crawling up the stairs and the little robots that haunted my dreams for weeks after.

There’s Carnival of Souls, creepy and atmospheric. The original House on Haunted Hill. Nosferatu, Night of the Living Dead and White Zombie. I could spend entire days here, maybe not even watching the whole movies but fast forwarding to the best parts.

Oh, and there’s Bad Taste, Peter Jackson’s cinematic glory about brain harvesting aliens. And you’ve got A Boy and His Dog, Teenagers From Outer Space, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.….can you tell I’m excited? I haven’t even checked out the Kung Fu yet.

Well, this presents the perfect opportunity for my annual Halloween Horror Movie Poll. This time I’ll ask, what are your favorite BAD horror movies? Anything that can be considered a B Movie, or is listed on badmovies.org counts. All those cheesy Vincent Price films, the slew of 80’s slasher flicks….so many bad horror movies, so little time before Halloween to watch them all.
