Your Favorite Godzilla Films Are Streaming For Free


Crackle is really proving to be that girl this month. Not only are they continuing to deliver on the horror movie front, but they are also curating specialty lists around topics like the Scary Strong Women. While they’ve given us plenty of movies to watch this March, they had one more kaiju-sized surprise for us. They recently drew our attention to their collection of Godzilla movies dating back to the 1950s. With this list, Crackle proves they are pulling ahead in the race to be the favorite free streaming service this year.

We had no follow-up questions as we turned on our TVs and closed the office to take advantage of all these Godzilla movies. However, some of you may wonder what about this impending spring season inspired this kaiju energy. The good people at Crackle explained:

With the recent Oscar win of the hit film Godzilla Minus One and ahead of the Easter weekend release of the much-awaited Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, your friends from Crackle wanted to let you know about the monster library of Godzilla classics you can tear into for FREE!

So, there you have it. This self-guided Godzilla marathon was put together with your holiday viewing in mind. Get into your Sunday best and grab your chocolate bunnies and remote because this kaiju king has risen this holiday season.
