All The Best Horror and Sci-Fi Movies on Tubi

With the explosion of streaming content out there right now it’s hard to wade through the massive lists on every service to find the very best worth watching.  Tubi, which has just come on people’s radar, is a fantastic streaming service that is absolutely free.  It costs nothing!  The best part is it has a massive library of horror and sci-fi.  Surprisingly, it’s a really good catalog too.  This isn’t just the throwaway titles that are free because they are terrible and no one wanted to watch them.  There is a great mix of popular mainstream, old school slashers, cult classics, and even some really hard to find hidden gems.  This is by no means an exhaustive list, but the list of the best that’s available right now in no particular order.
