Since they feature a pretty full horror library throughout the year, Tubi may just have the cure for your Halloween hangover. Was their October catalogue pretty fantastic? Heck, yeah! But the Tubi November calendar looks pretty great too.
Let’s start by talking about the latest Tubi Original, a documentary called Evil Among Us: Ted Bundy. It will begin streaming on November 23, and it’s a must-see for all true crime followers. Bundy was a serial killer that more or less stood apart from the pack. By all accounts, he seemed like a nice, normal guy, and didn’t give off “weirdo” vibes. He even fooled true crime author Ann Rule, who would later write a book about the man she at one time considered a friend (if you haven’t read The Stranger Beside Me, I highly recommend it). Tubi’s doc dives into the whys and hows of Bundy’s reign of terror, during which he murdered at least 30 young women.
Here are the remaining films coming to Tubi in November:
28 Days Later – One of the highest regarded “zombie” films, this one begins with a rage virus started by a group of chimps being experimented on in a research lab. When Jim (Cillian Murphy) awakens in the hospital from a coma, he finds himself in the midst of super-fast, enraged humans. He and a small group of survivors set off in search of a safe haven.
Cabin Fever – In Eli Roth’s 2002 directorial debut, a group of college kids do what a group of college kids should NEVER do: They rent a cabin in the woods. That never goes well in horror films, and it certainly doesn’t go well here, since a flesh-eating virus suddenly breaks out.
Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever – Ti West (X) directed and co-wrote this sequel, which sees the flesh-eating virus invading a high school prom. It should be noted that Cabin Fever 2 was subjected to multiple re-shoots and re-edits, to the point where West requested his name be removed from the credits. His request was denied, and he has since basically renounced the film.
Cabin in the Woods – Part satire, part love letter to slasher films, Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s spin on the trope of college students vacationing in a remote cabin was pure genius. A mysterious experiment is carried out from an underground (literally) lab, and the unaware students find themselves subjected to monsters, zombies, and all sorts of other stereotypical horror movie characters.
Freddie vs. Jason – It is exactly what it sounds like: A smack-down between two of the most iconic horror movie serial killers in existence. Poor Freddie, his power is at an all-time low since the townspeople no longer fear him. He thinks the answer is to team up with Jason Voorhees, but a power struggle soon ensues.
Friday the 13th (franchise) – I am not really sure which films Tubi is including from this enduring horror franchise, but I’ll go out on a limb and say at least a handful of the Jason films will be available to stream in November. Take a trip back to Camp Crystal Lake and revisit the notorious hockey masked killer and his victims.
Grind House: Death Proof – Originally released with Planet Terror as a double feature, this Quentin Tarantino film stars Kurt Russell as a stunt man who uses his knowledge as a murder weapon. He has equipped his car with the same types of safety features you would find in a stunt vehicle, which basically makes him death proof when he uses said car to cause horrific car crashes.
Grind House: Planet Terror – A deadly biochemical agent causes humans to becom zombie-like creatures, and go-go dancer Cherry Darling (Rose McGowan) and her ex-boyfriend El Ray are attacked. Though both survive, Cherry’s leg is ripped off. No problem, though, since El Ray simply attaches a table leg to her stump. After the table leg is replaced with an assault rifle, things kick up into high, violent gear.
Halloween II – If you aren’t already burned out by repeated viewings of every Halloween film in existence during the month of October, revisit Haddonfield in the immediate aftermath of the first film. Michael Myers stalks Laurie (Jamie Leigh Curtis), following her to the hospital, where she was taken for treatment of the injuries she sustained. Michael’s not picky, he is content to kill off anyone who gets in his way.
Halloween III: Season of the Witch – Even though Darcy the Mail Girl has still not managed to get this sequel onto The Last Drive-In, you can now watch it on Tubi. With Michael Myers nowhere in sight, Tom Atkins and Stacy Nelkin attempt to stop cursed Halloween masks from causing mass destruction.
The Conjuring – Paranormal Investigators / Demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) try to help the Perron family, who have recently moved into a haunted farmhouse in Rhode Island. Sympathetic characters, the warm relationships and some truly scary effects make this a must-see for fans of supernatural horror.
The Crazies – There are two versions of this film, the 1973 original and the 2010 remake, so I am not 100% sure which one will be available to stream. It’s most likely the remake, which stars Timothy Olyphant as the sheriff of Ogden Marsh, Iowa. When the town is exposed to a deadly biological agent that causes the infected to change into violent killers, Sheriff Dutton fights to lead as many people as possible to safety.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (franchise) – See note above regarding the Friday the 13th franchise. It’s not clear how many of the nine films are included, but you can bet that Freddie Krueger will be in each of them. Robert Englund (and possibly Jackie Earle Haley) appears as the burned killer with knives for fingers.
The Shallows – Nancy (Blake Lively) takes a nostalgic trip to Mexico after her mother’s death. While surfing late in the day, she is attacked by a shark and left stranded on a rock out in the water. With only an injured seagull for company, Nancy must get back to shore before the rock is submerged by the tide…but the shark is still there.
Thirteen Ghosts – Once again, it’s unclear whether this is the 1960 original or its 2001 remake, but either way, it involves a family who inherits a mansion that is inhabited by 12 ghosts. That’s ok, there is still room for one more!
Green Room – Punk Band the Ain’t Rights are all set to perform, when their gig is cancelled. They accept a new gig in a rural area outside of Portland, not knowing that they are venturing into neo-Nazi skinhead country. After their disastrous show, the band members unwittingly stumble upon a murder and find themselves trapped behind a lock door, literally fighting for their lives. This excellent film stars Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawcat and Patrick Stewart.
The Night of the Hunter – Robert Mitchum stars as Reverend Harry Powell, a serial killer in disguise. Travelling along the Ohio River, Harry has a habit of marrying widows, killing them, then taking off with their money. A stint in jail lands him a cellmate named Jim Harper, who tells him about some money he hid, but he only told his kids where it is, and won’t tell Harry. You can guess where Harry heads immediately after his release.
