Stuff for free: number two - sci-fi, horror, everythingsploitation films


I love old black and white films. They’re a rare treat on TV – sadly, schedulers would rather show a made-for-TV 80s slushfest than a gripping film noir, purely because they think that if a viewer flicks to a channel showing a monochrome film, they’ll assume the station is for fogies.

But now you can experience that wet Sunday afternoon feeling any time you want, for free. www.publicdomaintorrents.com is a download site for films that are out of copyright.

Delights such as the entire Flash Gordon series (Ming and Flash in homoerotic pose above), are racked alongside juicy nuggets from Teenage Zombies, to Reefer Madness, Roger Corman’s Little Shop of Horrors, Things to Come and Wasp Woman.

The films are also available to download in formats suitable for your iPod and PSP - free schlock-to-go! And the only thing keeping you awake at night will be the nightmares inspired by Doctor X rather than your conscience-worrying copyright infringements.

Hello Stingler! That public domain site is fantastic! Just what I have been looking for all my internet life. Well, at least I think it is. I haven't as yet had time to delve much further than watching a bit of a Buster Keaton film, and probably won't be able to do the site justice for a week or two....but I can hardly wait! Black and white films are where its at for me, many a happy night I have indulged myself at the National Film Theatre. They just finished a season of Louise Brooks silent films, where there was a pianist by the side of the screen, banging along for up to 2 hours at a time. Surreal. I almost felt like dressing up for it all! And, no, I didn't have the cinema to myself...most showings were as good as sold out. So, once again, thankyou for your information....you can go now....go on...shoo
