W4free is expanding its free streaming line-up with a raft of horror favourites.
The streaming platform, which provides films and TV shows to watch online with adverts, launched last year in the UK. It was founded by Chris Sharp, former Chief Operating Officer for Cello Zone and AMC Networks UK, and has a string of international hits in its library, including Lars Von Trier’s Dogville, Grant Gee’s celebrated documentary Joy Division, the Irish musical drama Once, Oscar winner La Vie en Rose, Australian comedy Muriel’s Wedding and New Zealand drama Whale Rider.
Now, it’s unleashing a slew of genre titles, including Bobcat Goldthwait’s Bigfoot parody Willow Creek, Bruce McDonald’s Pontypool, Adam Green’s Hatchet, Elfie Hopkins, Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, Wesley Snipes cowboy/zombie mash-up Gallowwalkers, After.Life, Dead and Buried and The Haunting of Molly Hartley.
Sharp comments: “The Horror genre has always been dear to my heart and today’s announcement is only the beginning of what will be a steady output of international genre titles, ranging from cult classics to the contemporary”.
W4free is available as an app for mobile devices and via Apple TV, as well as through Netgem TV in the UK and Ireland.
