Free films

by Ghastly McNasty

I love horror and watch a scary movie at least once a week. I’m hoping that the people who look at this site are going to be influenced to watch some of the films I have reviewed. If I have rated it at 7 or above then, in my opinion, it’s worth viewing. Obviously I’m no authority on movies but I reckon if you’re reading this then you probably have the same interests and tastes as me.

If you do watch a Theatre of Terror recommended film then please review it yourself on this site. The more opinions the better and I’d love to hear if you agree or disagree with what I have written.

Most of the film I watch are downloaded off the internet. Yes it is illegal, but I still go to the cinema and sometimes buy good films. I can’t see too much point investing in a great DVD collection when 10 years down the line it’s going to be replaced by a new technology. Also most film review are biased and unbelieveable, the IMDB is used as a battle ground between movie studios, and film advertising can claim 5 star status when secretly it’s promoting an absolute stinker.

I’m all about free peace and sharing the love. So, for those who don’t know how to download free shit from the net, here’s a little guide:

A lot of people I know still use programs like Kazaa and Limewire to download music and movies. This method is about 5 years out of date and has been replaced by something know as torrents. Just an alternative method of file sharing to Limewire. I won’t bore you with the technical details but here is Ghastly McNasty’s 3 step guide to modern file sharing.

  • 1) Download a bit torrent client I use a program called Azureus to download films. There are many others available but this one currently works for me. Visit their website and click on the big download button. Just like any other programs you download from the net, save the download to your desktop, and when the save is completed open the file and install the Azerues bit torrent client.
  • 2) Download a movie torrent Next step is to find yourself a movie you want to download. Axxo is good for movies, while Mininova has a good range of everything including music, TV programs, games and books. Go to Mininova and search for a movie you would like to watch. The search results should bring up a list of torrents available. Check the list and look for a file that has a high number of seeds. (Seeders are uploading, Leechers are downloading) Click on the link, download the torrent and save it to a folder on your computer
  • 3) Start the download Finally all you need to do is then double click on the torrent file you have just loaded. This should open up the bit torrent client program we downloaded in the first step. Choose where you want to save the movie and click OK. The download will start and all you need to do now is wait.

It really is as simple as that. Some downloads can take longer than others but just be patient. I only have a 2mb line and sometimes I have downloaded a whole movie in 2 hours! Sometimes it can take 2 days! Happy viewing.
