NEW THIS WEEK: BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE AND MORE

BAD MEETS WORSE

 

Hellish hotels, scary symbiotes, and spooky sorcerers. Who says December can’t be devious?

 

 

A priest, a singer, a salesman, and a drifter all walk into a hotel… and none of them is exactly who they say they are. It’s no joke; it’s Bad Times at the El Royale, the twisty and twisted noir thriller from the maker of The Cabin in the Woods.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

One part alien invader, one part Tom Hardy as a hard-boiled reporter. Shake well and stand back as Venom, two anti-heroes in one, goes on a crime-fighting, crime-committing, chaos-creating spree that Spider-Man will be glad he doesn’t have to clean up.

 

 

Speaking of chaos, there’s going to be a whole lot of it if Lewis Barnavelt and his wacky warlock uncle can’t figure out what’s going on with The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

 

Director Eli Roth and composer Nathan Barr were especially inspired to bring the classic children’s tale to life, which they’ll tell you more about in the video above.

 

 

This mommy blogger’s got more than mashed peas and crepe paper crafts on the brain.

 

There’s a missing person case to solve, and as the clues add up and the details unravel, solving it may be more than just A Simple Favor.

 

Missed out on some major movies this year? Want to stock up entertainment for holiday guests? Vudu’s End of Year Sale is the best and brightest time to stock up on star-studded movies, bundles, and TV seasons.

 

 

GEAR UP WITH CERTIFIED PROPS FROM THE PREDATOR

THE VIEWER BECOMES THE HUNTER

 

 

 

Just in time for the holidays, The Predator has arrived: big, bad, and ready to rent in up to 4K + UHD. Enjoying the explosive action and cutting edge effects of the series’ high-tech upgrade is its own reward, but since its the season of giving and all, we thought we might throw in a little something extra.

 

Through some high-stakes science fiction subterfuge, we’ve gotten our hands on 5 real-life props used in the making of The Predator, each with a certificate of authenticity.

 

Every day from today 12/18 through 12/22, we’ll be randomly selecting one The Predator renter to take home one of these ultra-rare pieces of movie magic.

 

With a separate drawing each day, the odds have never been better for nabbing a grand prize, and all you have to do to enter is rent and enjoy the latest pulse-pounding, human hunting entry in one of the sci-fi’s all-time greatest franchises.

 

One of these authentic, movie-making Predator props could be yours:

– Quinn McKenna’s Tactical Backpack 12/18

– Will Traeger’s Tactical Backpack 12/19

– Quinn McKenna’s G-Shock Watch 12/20

– Baxley’s Watch 12/21

– Agent Church’s Watch 12/22

 

 

Rent, watch, and with a little luck you may just claim a one-of-a-kind trophy to prove your Predator superfandom. Full rules and details here.

2018 VUDU HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

DECK THE HAULS

 

Tis the season for secret Santas, white elephants, and all manner of giving occasions, and trying to find the perfect thing for everyone on your list can leave you saying “Bah humbug!”

 

No need to fear the cheer, we’ve assembled our first ever Vudu holiday gift guide to help you find the right stuff for stuffing those stockings. Everyone loves a good movie, and we’ve got the greatest gadgets, goodies, and gear to make everyone’s movie night merry and bright.

 

TECH

 

 

 

Wi-fi coming up a little short? A mesh network extends the router’s reach to cover the whole home, so everyone can browse, game, or stream in style.

 

 

 

The best TV is nothing without awesome sound, and a wireless soundbar is a sleek and simple way to amp up movies with the sound they deserve.

 

 

 

Any TV can be smart with a little help. Roku devices let you stream all of your favorite video apps (*cough* Vudu *cough*) onto the big screen, with options for newer and older models.

 

COMFORT

 

 

Is it a blanket? Is it a hoodie? All we know about Huggles is they’re the comfiest purchase you’ll ever make, and available in multiple colors!

 

 

 

Up your snack game with an air fryer: the quicker, healthier, oil-free way to cook and crispify all your favorite movie eats.

 

 

Nobody likes a warm drink (hot cocoa no included). A Yeti drink holster keeps your favorite movie drink cold from opening titles to end credits.

 

SWAG

 

 

For the movie fan ready to immortalize their absolute fav; these awesome metal movie posters are a grown-up upgrade to classic dorm room decor.

 

 

 

The perfect (and affordable) addition to every movie buff’s stocking, Funko’s cute collectibles are a great way to let your fan flag fly.

 

 

 

For those who want to rep their favorite franchises all day and/or night long, these fun and comfy movie-themed shirts are a steal at just $6.

 

MOVIES

 

 

Can’t have a movie night without movies. Gifting a Vudu digital copy of the latest releases is as easy as picking up a digital movie card at your local Walmart.

 

 

Why not double (or triple) dip? Vudu Disc + Digital gets you a physical copy to give away, a digital copy for you, and some bundles even come with exclusive movie-themed collectibles.

 

 

Movie tastes are personal, so why not let your giftees choose for themselves? With a Vudu eGift card they can purchase or rent movies and TV from our huge collection of new and classic titles, then watch them on any device.

 

 

FREE MOVIES AND TV FOR FRIDAY

NEW THIS WEEK

 

 

She’s a mixed up, mic’d up, mess of an aunt, and the last thing she wants or needs is three kids showing up at her front door (with Madea no less). With a house full of strangers and nowhere to hide, April (Taraji P.Henson) will either change for the better or stick to her philosophy: I Can Do Bad All by Myself.

 

 

Which is more valuable: a chance to start over again, or revenge against the person that wronged you? A wife falsely convicted of murdering her husband is opting for the second choice, even if it means Double Jeopardy.

 

 

He’s got it all: money, power, respect, a loving family, and an unquenchable bloodlust that drives him to kill. One of these things is not like the others, and it’s taking the wheel for a wild ride Mr. Brooks will never forget.

 

SHARP TURNS

 

These characters may seem to be living normal lives, but trouble is brewing beneath the surface.

 

 

Saving the earth, the whales, and the ozone layer can’t be bad right? What about if you blow up a damn to do it? What if something goes wrong? There will be a lot of questions when these Night Moves are done.

 

 

Three different women, three different relationships, none of them good. As they each struggle to break free from the things that hold them back, they’ll find that reaching their Personal Velocity is all about the journey.

 

 

Forming your identity at school can be a trying thing, especially when everyone starts developing mysterious fainting spells. Nothing is as it seems and everything is about to be turned upside down in The Falling.

 

No need to drop dollars on movie, we’ve got thousands of free movies & TV shows ready to go in our full free collection here.
