BOO! Download 5 Halloween Films for $0.99 each!

Don’t let the Christmas songs fool you: Halloween is absolutely the most wonderful time of the year.

Halloween is the one day where you get to unleash your inner ghoul or fairy princess and you get candy for your efforts. It’s a time of glittery costumes, free candy, funky makeup, free candy, fantastical accessories, and, of course, free candy.

But Halloween (regrettably) isn’t all about the delicious treats. It’s also all about the tricks and the creepy crawly frights and scares. For those of you who go all-out scary on All Hallows’ Eve, we have 5 spooky films to supplement your Halloween horror watch list. Best treat of all, you can download them for only $0.99 each!

Bydlo, Patrick Bouchard, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

Watch a nightmarish allegory about the chaos, terror and eventual disaster of mankind being its own slave driver in Patrick Bouchard‘s expertly animated and utterly haunting film. The animation was inspired by Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, a composition as equally evocative as the film.

The Burning Times

The Burning Times, Donna Read, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

You don’t need a bubbling cauldron to glimpse into the ghastly and horrific witch hunts that swept across Europe between the 15th and 17th century. Donna Read‘s doc examines the mass hysteria that culminated in the torture—and eventual burning at the stake—of thousands of young women who were accused of witchcraft.

The Brainwashers

The Brainwashers, Patrick Bouchard, provided by the National Film Board of Canada

Patrick Bouchard‘s second addition to this list tells the chilling story of two chimney sweepers who are tasked with destroying all the memories from their victim’s brain, all to figure out what goes on inside a person’s head.
