Watch Horror Movies All Weekend With Tribeca Film

Have a happy Halloween weekend with some of our favorite TF horror titles (including 'The Demon's Rook') currently available to rent on iTunes.

Is there any better way to get into the spooky Halloween spirit than by watching as many horror movies as possible? If your plans for this weekend include bingewatching some really terrifying (and sometimes delightfully campy) movies, you'll be happy to hear that all of the horror movies in Tribeca Film's catalogue are available to rent on iTunes. Just click on the links below! 

With secluded haunted houses, demonic forces, cannibalistic witches, and the recently released The Demon's Rook, there's something on this list for you. Here's a crash course on this collection of movies, which are sure to scare your pants off.

The Demon's Rook 

The coolest thing about The Demon's Rook is definitely the craftsmanship that went into making up the demons. The old-school special effects recall DIY creature-features of the 80's and rely on prosthetics, fake blood, and fog machines.

Open Grave

A man (Sharlto Copley) wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that's more vicious -- and hungry -- than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together before it's too late.

Resolution

In an abandoned cabin on the edge of an Indian reservation, Mike (Peter Cilella) stages a risky intervention to force his friend Chris (Vinny Curran) off meth and into rehab. But what begins as an attempt to save his friend’s life takes an unexpected turn when ominous threats start appearing around the house – and they realize that Chris’s addictions are the least of their worries. One of the most talked-about discoveries of last year’s festival circuit, Resolution is genre-bending horror at its most bone-chilling.

Grave Encounters

Lance Preston and the crew of "Grave Encounters", a ghost-hunting reality television show, are shooting an episode inside the abandoned Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital, where unexplained phenomena has been reported for years. On the quest to expose the truth, and scare their viewers, the "Grave Encounters" crew conduct background interviews with current psychologists, as well as provide disturbing archival footage of patients in the earlier half of the century. All in the name of good television, they voluntarily lock themselves inside the building for the night and begin a paranormal investigation, capturing everything on camera. They quickly realize that the building is more than just haunted - it is alive - and it has no intention of ever letting them leave. 

Grave Encounters 2

Grave Encounters was a found-footage horror phenomenon that many people believed was just a movie.  Film student Alex Wright is out to prove them wrong in Grave Encounters 2.  Alex is as obsessed with the first film, as the 20 million people who viewed its viral trailer on YouTube.  While he and his friends research the events and visit the real psychiatric hospital depicted in the original film, they find themselves face-to-face with unspeakable evil, banking on the hope that their knowledge of the original film will help them survive the sequel. 

Hansel and Gretel Get Baked

Considering that the witch's house was made out of candy, this interpretation of this beloved childhood fairytale of Hansel and Gretel is not that far of a stretch. Hansel and Gretel Get Baked, however, substitutes candy for cannabis and the cautionary tale against gluttony takes on a whole new meaning.  The movie centers around an intense new marijuana strain named “Black Forest” and Hansel and Gretel struggle to defeat the witchy dealer who eats her customers.

388 Arletta Avenue

In this fresh, subversive take on the found-footage horror genre from the makers of Splice and Cube, a faceless voyeur’s twisted manipulation of a young couple escalates into a deadly cat-and-mouse game, as seen from the perspective of hidden cameras he’s concealed throughout their house.

The Facility

At a remote medical facility, a group of seven strangers begin a clinical trial for the experimental new drug: Pro-9. As the untested drug begins to course through their veins, unexpected side-effects start to take hold and several of the volunteers are sent into an uncontrollable murderous rage.

A Night in the Woods

When three friends go hiking, jealousies, sexual tensions and strained relationships come to a head, turning what should have been a peaceful camping adventure into a terror trip. As collective paranoia reaches fever pitch it becomes clear that there is a much darker force at work in their ancient eerie surroundings. Who or what is after them? And can any one of them survive a night in the woods?

Hollow

An old monastery in a small, remote village in Suffolk, England has been haunted by a local legend for centuries. Left in ruin and shrouded by the mystery of a dark spirit that wills young couples to suicide, the place has been avoided for years, marked only by a twisted, ancient tree with an ominous hollow said to be the home of great evil. When four friends on holiday explore the local folklore, they realize that belief in a myth can quickly materialize into reality, bringing horror to life for the town.

Don't Go in the Woods

Don't Go in the Woods is sound advice, especially when there's a killer on the loose. First-time director Vincent D'Onofrioexplores love, greed and ruthlessness in this twisted musical/horror hybrid, telling the story of a young band who heads to the woods to get away from their everyday lives in order to focus on writing new songs. Hoping to walk away from the trip with new tunes that will score them their big break, they instead find themselves in the middle of a nightmare beyond comprehension. 

The Bleeding House

On the surface, the Smiths are an average American family, with a happily married mother and father, a moody 16-year-old daughter, and a distracted 18-year-old son. But patriarch Matt Smith appears a bit on edge, and the family is eerily damaged by something in its past. One night when a sweet-talking preacher carrying a briefcase arrives at their home after his car is disabled on a nearby road, it seems like this Christian man's presence may be just the breath of fresh air the family needs. But are the Smiths are ready for the atonement this neighborly guest has in store?

As we continue our #BlackHistoryMonth exploration of Tribeca selections helmed by black directors, it's time to turn our attention to a daring and genuinely monumental exercise that was ignored upon its first bow but remains radical and required viewing for anyone who cares about the past, present, and future of movies. In 2005, writer, director, documentarian, and film movement leader William Greaves debuted SYMBIOPSYCHOTAXIPLASM: TAKE TWO AND A HALF, in which the late indie pioneer, with the help of invaluable executive producers Steve Buscemi and Steven Soderbergh, revisited and reconceived his 1968 avant-garde landmark, a cult classic and film school staple that acerbically captured the making of a film within a film within a film. Greaves' update of his experimental, docu-fictional meditation on the warped and knotty act of moviemaking only intensifies this fluid work's status as a bona fide cinematic revolution unto itself.
“Her performance requires us to pay a great deal of attention to the detail and implication laid out across her expressive face, but the final result is a nothing less than a vigorously full-bodied creation.” In an ideal world, the amazing Lily Gladstone would have been an Oscar contender for her revelatory, @FilmIndependent-nominated performance in Kelly Reichardt’s exceptional drama CERTAIN WOMEN. Find out why. Link in bio.
Like Haile Gerima's HARVEST: 3,000 YEARS, today's #BlackHistoryMonth selection highlights another retrospective screening from a past Tribeca Film Festival. From 1989, Charles Lane's Sidewalk Stories is a silent masterpiece that updates Charlie Chaplin's soulful slapstick for modern times but imparts a heartrending worldview all its own. It tells the story of a homeless New York artist who assumes parental responsibilities for the young daughter of a murdered man, finding humor and humanity in every corner of the city. If you have yet to see this independent gem, seek it out immediately.
“I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.” Raoul Peck’s magnificent new film essay @IAmNotYourNegro dives into the complex legacy of the peerless, fearless writer and social critic James Baldwin, seen here in Istanbul circa 1960. @Eng_Matthew explains why it’s necessary viewing.
