DARKMATTER TV IS THE NEW STREAMING HOME FOR CULT FAVORITES
DARKMATTER TV is the new go-to app to stream classic horror movies, and these seven horror-staples are guaranteed to be a frightfully good watch.
Horror has remained a part of pop culture since the dawn of time – or at least since Bram Stoker’s Gothic horror novel “Dracula” (1897). Staple horror films like John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982) and Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (1980) have remained classic favorites despite the several re-makes and cinematic competitors.
Classic horrors were created in a different era, providing viewers with a much more eerie and creepy experience, rather than most modern films that are overtly CGI saturated. Filled with dark secret passageways, ominous farmhouses, mysterious carnivals and flesh-eating monsters, classic horrors have been passed down from generation to generation, presenting cinematic adrenaline rushes unparallel to any previous experience.
Instead of pouring millions of dollars into films we hope scares you, DarkMatter TV, TriCoast TV’s FREE ad-supported video service, has collected cinema’s cult classic horrors films that are sure to spook audiences of all ages. As the newest destination for genre fans seeking the best sci-fi, horror, action and true crime entertainment, DarkMatter TV provides studio hits from the past five decades, including underground fan favorites, glorified cult classic series, film festival favorites and additional top-notch viral content.
From untimely fright flicks like F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922) to George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968), these seven horror-staples streaming on DarkMatter TV are guaranteed to be a frightfully good watch:
1. Night of the Living Dead (1968) – George A. Romero
“There’s no denying it, Night of the Living Dead is THE archetypal zombie film,” wrote Classic-Horror.
Summary: From 16-time award-winning writer/director George A. Romero (Land of the Dead, Tales from the Darkside, Deadtime Stories), Night of the Living Dead follows a ragtag group of Pennsylvanians barricade themselves in an old farmhouse to remain safe from a bloodthirsty, flesh-eating breed of monsters who are ravaging the East Coast of the United States.
2. House on Haunted Hill (1959) – William Castle
“House on Haunted Hill is something everyone should watch at least once, preferable with good friends, good wine, and plenty of popcorn,” wrote Classic-Horror.
Summary: A millionaire offers $10,000 to five people who agree to be locked inside a large, spooky, rented house overnight with him and his wife.
3. Carnival of Souls (1962) – Herk Harvey
“Carnival of Souls is unlike any other movie I’ve ever seen,” wrote Classic-Horror, adding that moments of the film “blended with the crudeness of the production, are amongst the most inventive and absolutely creepy in all of horror cinema.”
Summary: Directed by four-time award winner Herk Harvey, Carnival of Souls takes place after a traumatic accident, where a woman becomes drawn to a mysterious abandoned carnival.
4. Deep Red (aka ‘Profundo Rosso’) (1975) – Dario Argento
“A film that deserves a place on the shelf of every horror and suspense film fan,” wrote Classic-Horror.
Summary: From Dario Argento, true staple in horror entertainment history for his award-winning writing in Opera (1987), Phenomena (1985) and Suspiria (1977), Deep Red is about a jazz pianist and a wisecracking journalist, who are pulled into a complex web of mystery after the former witnesses the brutal murder of a psychic. This award-winning Italian slasher will leave you at the edge of your seat until the very end.
5. Fantastic Planet (1973) – René Laloux
“Many movies may aspire to cult status, but only a few can slither right in and stake an unquestionable claim. The 1973 French/Czechoslovakian animated film Fantastic Planet, thankfully, is absolutely one of the latter,” wrote The Stranger.
Summary: Directed by three-time award winning director René Laloux (Time Masters), this animated sci-fi takes place on a faraway planet where blue giants rule and oppressed humanoids rebel against their machine-like leaders.
6. Nosferatu (1922) – F.W. Murnau
“Nosferatu is at least the earliest surviving cinematic appearance of that famed vampire, if not vampires in general,” wrote Classic-Horror, adding, “Nosferatu is an essential masterpiece, not only for the horror genre, but for film as a whole.”
Summary: Based on the novel “Dracula”, Nosferatu is a highly influential silent horror film. In the town of Wisborg, a demented estate agent sends his employee on a mission to sell a vacant property opposite to the mysterious Count Orlok. Upon the employee’s arrival, he comes across a novel, “Nosferatu”, which warns him of the supernatural perils. Orlok’s vampire nature soon becomes apparent, traumatizing the employee and unleashing terror upon Wisborg. But when his wife discovers the abandoned book, she learns that she must sacrifice herself to end the terror.
7. Dementia 13 (1963) – Francis Ford Coppola
“The genesis of Coppola’s legendary career as an American directorial icon started with the low-budget slasher thriller Dementia 13,” wrote Classic-Horror.
Summary: Shocked by the death of her spouse, a scheming widow hatches a bold plan to get her hands on the inheritance, unaware that she is targeted by an axe-wielding murderer who lurks in the family’s estate. What mystery shrouds the noble house?
