5 Free Movies on UK Film Channel
This month, UK Film Review Editor-in-Chief and film critic Chris Olson gives his list of movies to watch without spending a penny.
1. The Golden Shore
Directed by Fred Cavender and one of the most impressive dystopian short films currently on the channel, this is a gloriously made short movie. Fans of science-fiction and drama will be in their element, as will a cinephile who enjoys a high standard of filmmaking in their independent cinema.
2. Hold Me Down
Another drama, this time written and directed by Niclas Gillis. I gave this film 5 stars when I reviewed it for UK Film Review for its knockout story, compelling themes, and arresting visuals. Telling the story of a woman struggling to survive in urban America, it is a must-see for fans of gripping cinema.
3. Yemen: The Silent War
If those dramas don't bring a tear to your eye, this moving documentary from filmmaker Sufian Abulohom will. An emotionally charged and poignant piece on the state of life in Yemen, the movie is a tremendous achievement that plays with cinematic techniques. As my dad always said, it won't cheer you up but you will be glad you watched it.
4. Hell's Bells
If you have never experienced the sheer craziness that is Morris Dancing, this is the short film for you. With horror themes and dark comedy aplenty, it is the kind of free movie on the UK Film Channel we love to promote. Writer and director Luke Jeffrey has done these delightful dancers proud.
5. California Hotdog Champions
Absolutely nothing like the title sounds, this mixture of comedy, horror, and zombie tied up in a mockumentary format is another phenomenal outing from Fred Cavender. Come for the music and stay for the mauling.
There you have it. 5 Free Movies to watch on the UK Film Channel. Stay tuned for more lists, more free films, and more support for indie film.
