Happy Thursday, everyone! As we get closer to the weekend, you may be thinking about catching up on some horror and sci-fi movies over the next few days. And if that is the case, then perhaps I can help out with a recommendation—or 40. With our Indie Horror Month celebration still underway, I scoured the entirety of Tubi TV’s streaming horror library to put together this list of 40 excellent genre movies that are currently available to watch on their platform (which is free to everyone, just in case you didn’t know that).

And because Tubi TV’s variety of titles are vast, I was able to put together an extensive list that should have a little something for every kind of genre fan out there. So, if you’re looking to expand your horizons a little bit—or maybe you want to catch up with some of your own genre favorites—check out this list of 40 indie horror and sci-fi films that are currently available on Tubi, and join in on our celebration of all things independent horror.

Happy streaming!
