The Immortal Story: Divas and Dandies By Jonathan Rosenbaum
10 Things I Learned: A Taste of Honey By Elizabeth Pauker
We’re on a tear with our selection of free films on Hulu this week, called Crush! Kill! Destroy!—all of which feature destructive rampages. We have large-scale attacks from a chicken-lizard extraterrestrial (The X from Outer Space), a whole ancient tome’s worth of demonic beasties (Equinox), a head-splitting alien life force (Goke, Body Snatcher from Hell) and the world’s meanest pile of Jell-O (The Blob). And look out for Tatsuya Nakadai in The Sword of Doom and Mikijiro Hira in Sword of the Beast.
Maybe the strangest movie in the bunch is the provocatively titled The Cars That Ate Paris. Directed by Peter Weir (Picnic at Hanging Rock, The Last Wave), this satirical horror film concerns a mysterious spate of car accidents in a rural Australian town (called Paris). Check out this cult classic below or at Hulu, and sign up for Hulu Plus for just $7.99 a month to see hundreds of other streaming Criterion films.
