The Walking Dead Marathon – Pluto
The Best Things Streaming For Free This Month_1


Pluto has been doing a great job at creating a rad, usable platform for ad-supported video and on-demand content. This month they’re bringing something really cool to their roster. The first five seasons of The Walking Dead are now available on demand. They’ll also be playing a TWD marathon on their Stories By AMC channel on May 2 and every Saturday after. You’ll also be able to watch the first three seasons of Fear The Walking Dead too. This is a really impressive addition to Pluto’s ever growing lineup that will likely find them a whole new audience.

Color Out of Space – Hoopla

RLJE Films

One of the most comprehensive library apps, Hoopla has over 13,000 movies that almost anyone with a library card can access. If you don’t have a card already, check whether you can sign up digitally during the shelter-in-place order. This brand new H.P. Lovecraft adaptation stars Nic Cage and comes from director Richard Stanley. It’s surreal, beautiful, and delightfully strange. This is a great choice even if you aren’t a fan of Lovecraft and his terrible life choices.

Sea Fever – Hoopla

Eagle Film

Another inventive little indie comes is Neasa Hardiman’s Sea Fever. Sitting somewhere between The Thing and Alien in terms of tone, this chiller is claustrophobic as fuck. Siobhán is a marine biology student stuck on a fishing trawler with its cantankerous crew. But when a mysterious and powerful force gets its grips on the boat, she quickly becomes a hero. Grimy, scary, and atmospheric, Sea Fever is a great addition to the nautical horror canon.

Addams Family Values – Pluto
The Best Things Streaming For Free This Month_3

One of the few sequels that actually surpasses the original, we love Addams Family Values. This hilarious family comedy is a riotous joy and features brilliant performances. We still stand by the fact that Joan Cusack should have won an Oscar for her part in this sumptuous and silly flick. Following the birth of a new baby, the Addams are thrown into disarray. The scheming Debbie (played by Cusack) arrives in the guise of a nanny. And before they know it, the family is at the mercy of a sociopathic black widow. One of our faves, this is the perfect feel good movie.
