Diving headfirst into the Tubi Library of Horrors is a dizzying and potentially nauseating experience, not just for the gory horror movies you'll find there, but for the sheer coincidence of the journey. As a free, ad-funded streaming service, Tubi has one thing above all to offer: pure scalability. Your library of horrors is absoluteFestival, with about 1000 movies available, but the functionality and ability toto search forthese films are logically practically non-existent. It's a library that puts other streamers to shame, far bigger than Netflix and even bigger than genre-specific streamers like Shudder. But man, what a clunky UI.
You'll notice this as soon as you tell Tubi to show results for a specific genre. Choose "Horror Movies" and there's no way to further refine this selection of nearly 1,000 movies. It is not possible to reorder the list alphabetically. No more subgenres, no more categories. Dubbing and cuts in different languages of the same film appear multiple times in the list, not together. It appears to have been arranged in a completely random order.
That's why our guide to the best horror on Tubi is so important: do you really want to flip through 1,000 movies and look for something to watch?

George C.

Described by Martin Scorsese as one of the scariest films of all time,The challengetreats horror to the max, with Medak playing into the fear of the unknown with the precision of a horror master. (Indeed, it's surprising that Medak had never come close to this genre before.) After moving into a new home, a century-old mansion also inhabited by the restless spirit of a child, Scott's John Russell delves into the history of an institution . He covered up and monstrously wielded power in the name of financial gain.The challengeIt may be an effortlessly magnetic showcase for a skilled protagonist, but it's also a gripping, haunting mystery thriller.

From the film's hypnotic opening sequence, which follows Suzy Banyon (Jessica Harper) as she hails a taxi through a picture-perfect Grimm's Forest, audiences will be mesmerized by Goblin's crazy baroque music and Luciano Tovoli's haunting lens. He and Argento used Technicolor Imbibition film stock (unusual even in 1977) and innovative lighting techniques to achieve Disney-inspired reds, yellows, blues, and greens, colors that visualize the film's "monstrous" manifestation of the supernatural. Significantly, when Suzy faces off against the film's antagonist, the witch Helena Markos, Markos is rendered invisible. Only her labored, painful breathing marks her physical presence, but its insidious influence is everywhere, in every image, drowning out the world around her.

Althoughsunrisewill probably be increasingly valued and culturally much more important,Day of the DeadIt's my favorite of the George Romero zombie movies and I don't think it will ever get the respect it deserves. It hits a sweet spot: bigger budget, more ambitious ideas, and Tom Savini at the height of his powers as a practical effects artist.

This movie introduces them againScienceBack to zombie movies and finally the transformation of one of the main characters into a researcher (Matthew "Frankenstein" Logan) who has taken the time to study zombies in the relative safety of a lab.

The Less You Know About Karyn KusamaThe invitation, the best. This applies to any kind of slow-recording cinema, but Kusama is slow-recording to perfection. The key to successful smoldering in narrative fiction seems to be the narrative rather than the actual smoldering. In case ofThe invitation, which contains a story of deep, intimate pain, the kind none of us have to endure in our own lives. The film taps into a nightmarish vein of real-life fear, a loss so deep and pervasive that it transforms you as a person. That's where we start: dealing with grief. It's notable for its foundation, for the entire contextual narrative infrastructure that Kusama builds the film on in the first place. The movie begins in earnest when Will (Logan Marshall-Green in top form) arrives at a dinner his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard) is hosting at their former home. He brought his girlfriend Kira (Emayatzy Corinealdi) with him. But there's definitely something wrong with Eden's place, and since Will is the lens through which Kusama's audience interacts with the film, we can't say what it is. There's so much more to sayThe invitation, especially its climax where all is revealed and we see Will's fears and Eden's spiritual assertions for what they are. You'll be busy by then, but for Kusama, nervousness and excitement are feelings worth savoring. Of course it's best not to say where we're going, butThe invitationit is not notable either for its ending or for the direction we are taking to reach its ending.

9. Good night mom
Directors:Veronika Franz, Severin Fiala
External:Susanne Wüst, Elias Schwartz, Lukas Schwartz
We begin with nine-year-old twin brothers Lukas (Lukas Schwarz) and Elias (Elias Schwarz) exploring the rural paradise of their new home, swimming in blue lakes and casually exploring nearby caves that seem untouched in centuries. Though the twins seem perfectly content being enchanted by their paradisiacal nature, an almost indescribable tragedy looms over the film from the start. It's inexplicable but slightly high-pitched, like one of the guys is about to fall down a ravine or stumble into a hornet's nest at any moment. Perhaps it's because they can't seem to bow to adult supervision, that is, until their mother (Susanne Wuest) returns to their unremittingly modern home after surgery. With her face bandaged, her eyes red and scarred, "Mami" greets her children with disgust and fear. Of course, the boys begin to suspect that something is wrong with their mother, especially when, as punishment for her suspicious behavior (and we assume behaviors and transgressions that we still don't need to understand), she pretends that Luke doesn't exist.Good night momFor all its familiar notions, it's not exactly a traditional horror film, more in tune with the hauntings and quiet morality plays of Carl Theodor Dreyer than the grand Guignol schlock of an Eli Roth in heat. In fact, you can discover the "twist" at the end of the first act; While the filmmakers do nothing to bury leadership, they still go to great lengths to reconcile their noble concept with an eye toward certain notions about the nature of our human race in the subcutaneous folds of our deeply held beliefs about how life should be buried - family, love, trust—it should work. the real horror ofGood night momit's not aboutOMSbut she isOIt happens to her: how easily we can ignite even the very core of our baser notions of what it means to be human.

The film's first full sequence breaks the silence when Sergeant Jeon Jong-gu (Kwak Do-won, who delivers a coup de grâce) is called to the scene of a grisly multiple homicide. When Jong-gu appears, everything is in chaos; People scream and cry, emergency crews cover the area like ants at a bloody picnic, and the killer is stunned, unaware of the chaos or the boils on his skin. This is an incredibly scary and often disturbing movie, but Na finds the lure of disbelief far more disturbing than the sight of bodies being hacked to pieces and blood splattering on the wall. What do you do when your holy authority figures fail you? What do you do when you can't trust your perception? Na made these ideas, while hardly new to the horror canon, the overall aim of his film, and its conclusions are devastatingly bleak. ifthe processreach its spectacular final half hour, you'll vow never to ask these questions about your own life.

The film portrays changes in time and physical transport to commemorative places with a change in aspect ratio and a black and white palette. Nani's beautiful handwriting is well-practiced thanks to a lifetime of automatic writing, with the words (including some of the company's headlines, which is a big joke) flowing from her pen and claiming an otherworldly headline. That same paranormal flow flows into her grandson, Adam (Gabriel Nicholson), the aforementioned lumberjack, whose relationship with the voices in his head is a little less comfortable. It's a raw, gritty, even compassionate film that offers imperfect details of a family beaten and bruised to the core, with plenty to make sense of (or at least theorize about) for those brave enough to venture into the woods and dare to bring it back. return. for life As scary as it isthe moleIt's an experience with enough layers and skill that its enticing call will resonate in your head long after you've put it down.—Jakob Oller

Its opening premise is strong, as it follows a college film crew documenting the titular senior battling Alzheimer's disease. What they don't know is that someone orsomethingsomething else may have been welcome in Deborah's mind when her mental faculties weakened. The film scores with low-budget style and, above all, Jill Larson's chilling and nuanced portrayal of Deborah, but ultimately fails to hold up in the last third and strays further and further from logic. There are moments of disturbingly great visuals, but this is made up for by characters who behave incredibly irrationally, even for a horror movie. It becomes increasingly difficult to find reasons to film part of the story, leading to what some might call an elusive ending. That said, it's still far better than most entries in found footage or subgenres of its own, with an inherent flair that conquers a narrow script. —he told them

Any beat or reference that harks back to Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece serves no narrative purpose or unnecessarily recontextualizes a work of art. Do we really need a simple monologue that takes the audience through Jack Torrence's motivations for being an alcoholic?

29. Final stages
Director:Adrian Garcia Bogliano

Classification:N / D
final stagesis a limited but rather brilliant version of the werewolf movie, with a truly outstanding performance from screenwriter and actor Nick Damici (ofPlayground) as an elderly blind Vietnam veteran who moves into a retirement community currently under threat from a lycanthrope. After starting off with a bang, it builds slowly, fleshing out the strained relationship between the protagonist and his son, the difficulties his blindness brings, and the werewolf's search for identity. The characterization of the embittered main character is very well crafted, and the film shines with many “little things”: great sound design, great dialogues, well-cast supporting actors. It even features a pretty impressive werewolf transformation scene that, while not exactlyAmerican Werewolf in LondonTerritory, is one of the best I've seen in a long time. It should be noted that actual werewolf costumes look a little ridiculous, like a man in a wolf-bat hybrid costume, and not as good as saying:soldier dogs– but the effects on the blood are excellent. In terms of performance, however, it is far above most independent horror films and even hits a sweet spot with effective drama. If werewolves are your choice of movie monsters, they should be at the top of your must-see list.– Jim Vorel

Everyone who meets her immediately hates her and subjects her to cruel insults. But soon the people in the camp who were mean to Angela are eliminated. The movie seems designed to look like a horror movie, but the death scenes are often so weird that they also blend comfortably into a horror comedy.

The main character played by Katharine Isabelle from the teen horror classic.Ginger Biscuits, is a young school-leaving surgery student who supports herself through backstage (albeit tech-savvy) plastic surgeries that decent hospitals just don't do. Not surprisingly, this has led her into some very dark and bizarre circles, from criminals who need life-saving surgery to her best friend who paid a fortune to look uncannily like 1930s cartoon character Betty Boop.

New Zealandconnected to homedescribes itself as horror-comedy, but this is the rare case where this tag is fairly light on "comedy" and leans a bit more towards horror. It's an interesting, well-designed film that feels a little slow at first: a worried woman is sentenced to house arrest in her childhood home, which her mother believes is haunted. However, as unexplained phenomena accumulate and the house's sordid history comes to light, a fascinating mystery begins. The twists in Act III, in particular, take the story into deliciously unexpected territory in a way that is emotional, terrifying, bloody, funny, and entertaining in equal measure. The film does a great job of first establishing our heroine as truly unlikely before slowly and completely transforming her without losing the core of her snappy, biting personality.
