So while I advocate always keeping things you LOVE in physical media, DVDs , Blurays, CDs, etc; the beneft of Streaming and Digital is that it is GREAT for exploring, and finding out what out there is worth having. Most things aren’t, so Streaming is great for a try before you buy methodology, or simply finding new things to watch right now
This installment’s channel up for review is FILMRISE HORROR.
FILMRISE HORROR – nice interface and good Halloween selection for this free ad -supported VOD/Streaming channel. Also I like that it gives the movies ratings. The lack of ratings and trailers is one of the reasons I left Netflix. Highlight of this channel, as we gear up for Halloween, are:
- BIG BAD WOLF – readily available on other chaneels, it is always a good one to watch
- CREATURE – nice 80s Alien ripoff. But despite that, a good although cheesy watch
- SWAMP SHARK – I’ve actually been meaning to watch this one. A shark in the swap? I’m there! 🙂
- ALIEN CONTAMINATION – Another film I have been meaning to check out
- IMAGES i This is a FANTASTIC early Robert Altman film, during his very experimental phase. With stunning cinematography and a brilliant discordant score this is a film I m proud to own on Bluray. But it is good to know streaming channels are showing it some love.
- MEMORY OF THE DEAD – another one I want to take a look at
- MANEATER – Gay Busey fights a Tiger. I’m there. 🙂
- LYCANTHROPE – I’ll try most horror films that have to do with Werewolves.
- NIGHT OF THE DEMON – I’ll try most horror fiilms that have to do with Bigfoot.
- STRIGOI – sounds intriguing
- BITE MARKS – intriguing sounding Vampire flick
- THE 4th FLOOR – a top notch cast in this interesting sounding film about an apartment build and a dangerous neighbor
- SPIDERS and SPIDERS 2- I saw SPIDERS 2 and really, really enjoyed it. So looking forward to watching the first one.
- BLOODWORX- I remember this being pretty good
- DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE – interested in seeing this made for TV version
- LARVA – intrigued
- FRANKENSTEIN – A 2015 vod version. May be worth a look.
- WITHER – A swedish I believe, version of EVIL DEAD. A good film.
- BLOOD PUNCH – Fantastic. Lots of fun.
- DER SAMURAI – Disturbing, slow burn film, that is worth a watch.
- IN THE SPIDERS WEB – Another fun Lance Henriksen horror film
All in all, this week FILM RISE HORROR has plentiful selections, good quality, a nice interface, and effective ratings to help you narrow in on a choice, unfortunately the ads are WAY too invasive and plentiful. Grade for this channel is : D-. It is not worth adding to your list.
THE FILMRISE HORROR CHANNEL GETS A FAIL. Do not subscribe to it this week.
