Free Halloween Movies!

It's almost Halloween, which means it's the perfect time to watch some scary movies! What? You don't have any scary movies? Well, that's okay. If you're reading this, chances are you can watch a whole bunch of classic horror movies for free! There are a lot of old movies which are free to watch and available in the public domain, and a lot of them can be found to download for your own private use on the Internet Archive. What? You thought only bad old movies were in the public domain? Well think again! Here are five of my favorite movies that you can download right now for free from the Internet Archive.

Night of the Living Dead (1968)

This is probably the most notorious and best example of an excellent film that is free to watch from the public domain. Night of the Living Dead is one of the most popular zombie flicks of all time, and it's a perfect movie to watch around Halloween. Download it here

Nosferatu (1922)

This immortal classic Vampire flick is also free to watch. Check out what real vampires look like in one of the films that started it all almost 90 years ago. Warning: Vampires portrayed in this film do not sparkle in the sunlight. Download it here.

The Last Man on Earth (1964)

It's I am Legend before either Will Smith or Charlton Heston got their hands on it. This is the story as told from the perspective of Vincent Price! Another classic available for free in the public domain, and even though it isn't great, it is a pretty good and cheesy horror flick. Download it here.

Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959)

Perhaps the most famous flick that Ed Wood ever created, although for the worst reasons. This is the most cornball horror flick I can think of. Everything about it is cheap and stupid, and that's what makes it so awesome. If you need a good laugh this Halloween, you can always count on this gem. Download it here.

White Zombie (1932)

This is yet another Zombie classic. It's also the movie that gave the popular band headed by Rob Zombie its namesake. Get a taste of horror history and check this flick out for free. Download it here.

This select choice of horror films only touches the surface of what is available to watch and download for free from the public domain. If you take some time just to search the Internet Archive, I'm sure you'll discover more than a few gems that I haven't even mentioned here. If you're hard up for some horror but you don't have any money, let public domain become your best friend! Check out what's available and start watching excellent free movies today!
