7 Free Horror Movies Websites in 2020

7 Free Horror Movies Websites in 2020


Horror Movies tend to engage audiences in ways other film genres do not. They terrify the audience, get goosebumps, and even force them to scream and embarrass themselves. Some notable features of this genre are Dracula, The Exorcist, Psycho, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Rosemary’s Baby, Insidious, etc.

To embrace the thrill of this genre, you don’t have to shell out a fortune as there are plenty of horror movie websites that let you stream full-length feature films without spending a penny. Many of these horror streaming services don’t even ask you to sign up to download scary movies.

7 Free Sites To Watch Horror Movies Online

1. Crackle

Owned by Chicken Soup For The Soul Entertainment and Sony Pictures, Crackle is a well-known name when it comes to watching movies for free. This ad-supported website keeps updating its horror catalog from time to time, so don’t worry about ending up with the same choices again and again.

About 50+ horror movies on Crackle can be sorted by title and duration, streamed in any web browser in good quality. However, don’t expect any new horror movie releases on Crackle – sadly, that’s the case with all other free horror movie websites.

2. CONtv/Viewster

Founded in 2007, Viewster was acquired and renamed CONtv Anime in June 2020. However, Viewster’s official YouTube channel still exists with many full-length horror films. Some of the most recent uploads are The Summoning, Open Windows, Brackenmore, Blood Widow, etc. Since you already know how free content on YouTube works, I don’t think I need to go into detail about it.

Moving on to the brand-renamed CONtv, it primarily caters to the needs of anime fans with a wide selection of anime series and films. The ad-supported site also streams free horror movies with an attractive and user-friendly interface. While some movies don’t require you to register, others want you to register for a free CONtv account to continue.

3. Popcornflix

Owned by Screen Media Ventures, Popcornflix offers many public domain horror movies that you can stream online from the comfort of your home. While the overall interface of the website is nothing fancy, the website hosts more than 250 horror movies that one can watch in high quality. Popcornflix has also produced original programs, which also include horror films like Portal, Darling, Djinn, Void, etc.

Similar to Viewster, Popcornflix also has an official YouTube movie channel that keeps adding new movies from time to time. According to my personal experience, watching free horror movies on the Popcornflix YouTube channel is a better experience compared to their website.

4. Horror movies on YouTube

YouTube hosts many public domain horror films, which you can watch for free and have a refreshing experience. In this list myself, I’ve talked about YouTube channels like Viewster and Popcornflix, which are alternatives to free horror movie websites. YouTube’s official movies section also contains free, ad-supported content from genres like horror, thriller, drama, comedy, etc.

If you like surfing the web in 2020, YouTube could be a goldmine for classic horror films uploaded under a Creative Commons License. Just searching for horror films yields many results on YouTube; just make sure you activate the Creative Commons filter from above and legally watch free horror movies.

5. IMDb TV

For horror movie lovers in the United States, IMDb TV IMDb free movie streaming service is a great choice. To stream content, you need to register using your IMDb, Google, Amazon, Apple, or Facebook account. Nevertheless, its movie collection and freshness really help IMDb TV stand out from the crowd. You can also use a Fire TV device to enjoy content on a bigger screen.

6. Disney+ Hotstar

In line with IMDb TV for the US, Disney+ Hotstar is one of the best free horror movie websites for Indonesian users in 2020. While Disney+ Hotstar’s horror catalog isn’t nearly as great as some sites mentioned above, its interface is definitely better than services like Popcornflix.

7. 80s Horror

As the name suggests, 80sHorror is a horror streaming service specifically for fans of 1980s movies. It basically does the job of collecting and sorting user-submitted movie links on YouTube and adding information like IMDB ratings, Wikipedia, Rotten Tomatoes, and Amazon Buy links to the list.

The website sorts movies by year and further lets you select sub-genres such as Vampires, Werewolves, Halloween, Ghosts, etc. You can even sign up for their newsletter to get regular updates about new posts. The website also has a YouTube channel that posts movie reviews and suggestions.
