We live in great times if you, like myself, appreciate B-Movies, because the Internet is polluted with these old, cheezy movies available for watching/downloading legally (in most cases).
Recently Google has expanded their movie service on Youtube. Now you can rent full length movies through the popular video service, but what many do not know is that there is a huge number of movies available for free also. I have watched several movies for free over the last few months on Youtube, including the notorious Ed Wood film, Plan 9 From Outer Space, the Filipino exploitation films, Brides of Blood and the Mad Doctor of Blood Island. There are lots more to come, I am sure as there are tons of B-Movies up there.
Another great source is the Internet Archive. The Internet Archive is an organization that is indexing and archiving the Internet, as well as preserving media for the future. In their “Moving Images” section under Feature films you can find hundreds of public domain movies. I have watched quite a few Film Noir movies and a number of Science Fiction 50s B-Movies. There’s is whole lot more there too, including TV shows and music. This is actually my favourite spot on the Internet.
There are lots of other places too – all it takes is a Google search for Public Domain movies will reveal a plethora of sources. -Why not send me an email of your favourite, freely available movies on the Web? Email me at email@example.com and share?
