If you’re looking for an alternative to the usual rubbish shown on TV, love old films, or want to watch some classic horror movies (that will scare you more through their atmosphere Â than their special effects), then you should take a look at Classic Cinema Online.
Classic Cinema Online features a range of old films stretching back to the early 1900s. Many you won’t of heard of, but there are a few classics amongst them which would be considered must-sees by film buffs, such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, considered an early but hugely influential masterpiece of cinema.
There are a few hundred films to choose from (sometimes the quality can be a little poor), in categories such as Comedy, Horror, Sci-Fi, War and Westerns. There’s also an archive of historic news reels, so there should be something for any film tastes.
