If you’re a streamer and aren’t taking advantage of Tubi.TV’s free streaming service you’re missing out. Tubi has so much to offer, and actually has an impressive selection of ’90s movies, TV series, and cartoons.
I was browsing their catalog the other day looking for some spooky something to watch since we’re finally into October, and I came across a couple of movies that would make for a great double-feature for a night in this month. Two classics from the ’90s…Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Urban Legend!
Just in case you’ve forgotten, these two movies combined featured a host of popular young actors and actresses from the ’90s like Kristi Swanson, Hillary Swank, David Arquette, Luke Perry, Alyson Hannigan, Seth Green, Tara Reid, Josh Jackson, Rebecca Gayheart, Jared Leto, & more! Not only are these two films loaded with star power, but they play nicely off of one another as well, with Buffy the Vampire Slayer being a more light-hearted flick in contrast to the heaviness of Urban Legend. Here’s the synopsis of each:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)
For Buffy Summers (Kristy Swanson), nothing is the same after she meets Merrick Jamison-Smythe (Donald Sutherland). Merrick tells the teen that he’s been sent to train her to fight vampires, and he proves himself by displaying his supernatural powers. Buffy is a quick study, and soon takes fellow student Oliver Pike (Luke Perry) under her wing, repeatedly saving him from fierce bloodsuckers. But, when a very dangerous vampire (Rutger Hauer) gets rambunctious, she must go to war again.
Urban Legend (1998)
A university is beset by a rash of gruesome murders that resemble old urban legends. When her friend Michelle (Natasha Gregson Wagner) is killed by someone hiding in her car, Natalie (Alicia Witt) begins to notice the pattern. Her suspicions grow stronger when her own roommate is strangled to death. Soon the quiet college campus is transformed into hunting grounds for a maniac, and Natalie struggles to find the killer and stop the bloodshed before she becomes the next victim.
So do yourselves a favor on a cool evening this month and settle in and watch this classic ’90s double-feature for free on Tubi.TV!
Loved the Buffy show, but never watched the movie. And Urban Legend is just good 90s fun.
