Bigstar.tv announces special Halloween offer

Bigstar.tvBigstar.tv, a video on demand platform, announced a special Halloween promotional offer today: viewers who sign up with the service before November 5 will receive a 30-day free trial membership, which allows unlimited access to their catalogue. Tying in with the Halloween season, Bigstar.tv is adding additional titles to their collection of new, rare, and cult horror films. New additions include SMASH CUT, a slasher film featuring Sasha Grey of the television series ENTOURAGE; DEATH TRANCE, an action fantasy film starring Tak Sakaguchi and Kentaro Seagal (son of Steven Segal); and SHADOW DEAD RIOT, a fusion of Asian-style action and zombie horror, featuring Tony Todd of Clive Barker’s CANDYMAN series.

Said Erik Marum, COO and CTO of BIGSTAR.tv, via press release:

“Halloween time notoriously revolves around horror films for many of us who enjoy scary movies. We are pleased to offer a variety of options for our members; they can watch our movies from almost any device and now during this Halloween promotion, they can do so for an entire month at no cost.”

Bigstar.tv’s movies are accessible from nearly any device with an Internet connection: computers, iPhones, iPads, Google Androids, Roku players, Samsung Internet-connected TVs, and more. Unlimited Movie members have access to stream movies from any of these devices, from any country in the world, by logging into their account with an e-mail address and password. At the conclusion of the free-trial period, members may continue their service for as low as $4.99 a month, with the option to cancel at any time.

City of the Dead (a.k.a. Horror Hotel, 1960)

HORROR HOTEL, known as CITY OF THE DEAD in England

Bigstar.tv’s horror category contains several familiar public domain titles (such as the Roger Corman films THE WASP WOMAN and THE TERROR, the latter with Jack Nicholson) and some MST3K-grade camp (THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE, THE GIANT GILA MONSTER, EEGAH). Fortunately, fans will be pleased to find some genuinely interesting cult and classic films: NOSFERATU (1922), THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME with Lon Chaney (1923), WHITE ZOMBIE with Bela Lugosi (1932), THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL with Vincent Price (1958), HORROR HOTEL with Christopher Lee (1960), and CARNIVAL OF SOULS (1962). Gore hounds should be thrilled by the likes of H.G. Lewis’s THE GORE GORE GIRLS (1972), Tobe Hooper’s EATEN ALIVE (1977), the amusing zombie-western THE QUICK AND THE UNDEAD (2006), and TOKYO GORE POLICE (2008).  Classic horror star Boris Karloff pops up in FEAR CHAMBER, a Mexican horror film from 1968 that had additional scenes shot in the U.S. by by cult filmmaker Jack Hill, and Lugosi shows up again in THE DEVIL BAT, an above-average B-movie from the 1940s.
