Time really is a circle huh? Every day, we get closer and closer to the good ‘ole days of cable. With so many streaming services available, each ranging from $5 – $25 a month, it’s getting pretty difficult to afford them, even if you’re splitting the cost. There’s got to be a cheaper way to indulge in, what can often be, a very expensive hobby. From movie tickets, to merch, to cons, to streaming services, things can certainly get a little pricey.

Thankfully, if you’re lookin for some scares on a budget, look no further than Tubi! Thanks to the ad-supported platform, Tubi is able to provide all this content to viewers in the US, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador, Ecuador, PanamaAustralia and New Zealand, all for free! Housing over 45,000 movies and tv shows in total, it goes without saying that its horror selection is pretty mighty. I know it seems too good to be true, but Tubi actually has a really solid library of classics, indies, and even more recent successes.

So if you’ve got a hankerin’ for some blood n guts, or maybe just some good jumps, here’s a list of some of the best horror movies Tubi has to offer!
