Fandor, the streaming movie service is bringing some of the movies that maybe you need to check out on their channel for this Halloween. These this films are different offering than what you would normally find on other channels.
Take a look at some of the features they are offering in October.
Halloween: Worst Nightmares
Bug, dir. William Friedkin
A lonely waitress with a tragic past, Agnes rooms in a run-down motel, living in fear of her abusive, recently paroled ex- husband. But when Agnes begins a tentative romance with Peter, an eccentric, nervous drifter, she starts to feel hopeful again – until the first bugs arrive.
Lisa and the Devil, dir. Mario Bava
Regarded as Mario Bava’s most personal and unconventional film, LISA AND THE DEVIL is a diabolical thriller flavored with the dreadful imagery and tormenting logic of an endless nightmare.
Patrick, dir. Richard Franklin
Robert Thompson stars as a comatose killer seemingly unresponsive in a small private hospital. But when a hot new nurse begins to question his condition, Patrick will unleash a waking nightmare of psychokinetic carnage.
Nosferatu, dir. F.W. Murnau
Before the assorted treatments of the Dracula tale starring either Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, Gary Oldman or Klaus Kinski there was F.W. Murnau’s NOSFERATU, one of the first and still most haunting of all vampire tales.
The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, dir. Dario Argento
While this modern day Jack the Ripper type is slithering through the dark byways of Rome slicing up pretty girls, director Dario Argento is carving up the emotions of terrified viewers. Dark deeds are mixed with black comedy worthy of Alfred Hitchcock in a film of almost unbearable tension and nail-biting suspense
The House that Dripped Blood, dir. Peter Duffell
A four-part anthology, all revolving around a house where all the previous owners everyone have died in a horrible fashion.
The Cabinet of Dr.Caligari, dir. Robert Wiene
The most brilliant example of that dark and twisted film movement known as German expressionism, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI is a plunge into the mind of insanity that severs all ties with the rational world.
Onechanbara, dir. Yohei Fukuda
A cowboy-hat-wearing, bikini-clad zombie assassin mows down hordes upon hordes of the undead in this tongue-in-cheek Japanese exploitation film, perhaps best understood by its alternative English title: ZOMBIE BIKINI SQUAD.
Carnival of Souls, dir. Herk Harvey
Mary Henry struggles to put her life back in order after emerging the lone survivor of a gruesome car accident. She takes a job as a church organist in Utah, alienating neighbors and fellow roomers with an icy detachment; unbeknownst to them all, Mary is sinking into one mystery after another. How did Mary Henry survive that accident? Why is she drawn to the abandoned carnival on an isolated beach? And who is the pale, sinister-looking man that has followed her to her new home?
Santa Sangre, dir. Alejandro Jodorowsky
The story of a young circus performer, the crime of passion that shatters his soul and the macabre journey back to the world of his armless mother, deaf-mute lover and murder. It is an odyssey of ecstasy and anguish, belief and blasphemy, beauty and madness. It is unlike any movie you have seen before… or ever will.
Dark Night of the Scarecrow, dir. Frank De Felitta
When young Marylee Williams is found viciously mauled, all hell breaks loose in her small rural town. Officious postmaster Otis P. Hazelrigg (Charles Durning) leads a gang of bigots in pursuit of the suspect: her mentally challenged friend Bubba Ritter (Larry Drake). Finding him hiding inside a scarecrow, they exact brutal mob “justice” only to discover a tragic mistake! Now a strange apparition stalks the land seeking each of them out as the legend of the Scarecrow begins.
