Horror Movies

Horror aficionados, rejoice! The world of free streaming has opened its dark, creaking doors to some of the most iconic horror films ever made. Here are five spine-chilling classics you can watch right now on Tubi without spending a dime:

Suspiria (1977)

Dario Argento’s landmark giallo is a gorgeous technicolor nightmare.

When American ballet student Suzy Bannion arrives at a prestigious German dance academy, she discovers the staff are actually a coven of witches with sinister plans.

Argento conjures an eerie atmosphere through the film’s lush visuals and Goblin’s nerve-jangling score.

Stylishly staged murder scenes feature razors, ropes and even attack dogs.

With its dreamlike aura and striking set pieces, Suspiria remains one of horror cinema’s most stunning artistic achievements.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)

Tobe Hooper’s shoestring budget shocker has retained its power to horrify nearly 50 years later.

When a van of friends stops at the wrong house in rural Texas, they disturb the cannibalistic Sawyer family.

Leatherface’s first appearance slamming the metal door is iconic and Hooper’s agonizingly drawn out scenes create deep unease.

Though short on gore, the documentary feel makes the violence intensely realistic.

With its nihilistic tone and the torment it inflicts on viewers, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre set a new bar for brutal horror.

Sinister (2012)

Ethan Hawke stars in Scott Derrickson’s chilling found footage tale as a true crime writer who discovers a box of disturbing home movies in his new house.

The footage depicts grisly murders linked to an ancient pagan deity named Bughuul.

Derrickson builds an atmosphere of lingering dread as the sinister force seems to turn its sights on the writer’s family.

Creative found footage sequences and Ethan Hawke’s committed performance elevate Sinister above typical supernatural fare.

Bughuul remains one of modern horror’s most frightening creations.

The Hills Have Eyes (1977)

Wes Craven’s gritty film strands suburbanites in the Nevada desert at the mercy of atomic mutant cannibals.

The contrast between civilized family and primal brutality provides chilling commentary.

Plenty of nail-biting sequences, plus Michael Berryman’s iconic villain Pluto make this a satisfyingly savage viewing.

Craven’s talent for terror is on full display here. Fun fact: Craven named the film after a Scottish ballad.

Phantasm (1979)

Don Coscarelli’s cult classic follows a teenage boy investigating a sinister Tall Man who turns corpses into dwarf zombies.

More surreal dreamscape than narrative, Phantasm impresses with bizarre visuals and its eerie score.

The Tall Man and his otherworldly creations stick with you long after viewing.

While the plot is confusing at times, the nightmarish atmosphere keeps you engrossed.

Phantasm kicked off a franchise, but the original remains the most inventive and chilling installment.
