Now that so many of us have been asked to remain at home during the Coronavirus crisis, streaming entertainment is more important than ever: as a distraction, an escape, and a way to feel connected to the outside world, cinema is more important than ever.
Last October, Dread Central and our Parent Company Epic Pictures launched a free AVOD app with a slew of awesome horror movies to consume. And did we mention it’s free? To recap:
We’ve launched an ad-based video on demand destination that can be found on the Amazon, Roku, FireTV, AppleTV, and Android TV platforms. On the app, you’ll see many DREAD titles, as well as previously released Epic Pictures horror titles. The app will also be home to upcoming and previously published original web content. We’re also working on mobile apps for iOS and Android phones so that you’ll be able to watch your favorite DREAD content anywhere! Download links are provided for your convenience below.
If you’re looking to bulk up on your horror knowledge, we’ve assembled a killer list of flicks streaming on the free DREAD App. We’ve also created a handy graphic of all the movies currently available to stream for free (have a look-see below).
We’ll do our best to keep the recommendations coming, with additional DREAD/Epic recommendations, as well as lists of what’s worth watching on Netflix, Amazon, Shudder, and other streaming platforms.
While I’m not focusing on apocalyptic themes, some of these suggestions are ironically fitting for facing current anxieties. Enjoy!
