WATCH: The Best Free Movies on YouTube!

As great as it is to have a zillion video-streaming options, subscription fees for all those different platforms add up. So it’s our duty to point out one you’re likely overlooking that won’t cost you a cent — as long as you already have an internet connection and a device capable of connecting to it, that is.

YouTube isn’t just for Vine compilations and viral videos anymore. The OG streaming platform hosts an insane number of movies you can watch at no cost — some more legal than others, admittedly. In addition, the site has a section for movies you can buy or rent. So the next time you’re in a movie slump and want a free way out, give some of these a try.

Movies in the public domain

When a film’s copyright expires, it enters the public domain — meaning you can watch it legally for free, no strings attached. Many of the films below were made before copyright renewals were a thing, and for more under-seen old-school classics and B-movies, check out the curated selections on accounts like Times Classic Entertainment.

A Bucket of Blood
Carnival of Souls
Cyrano de Bergerac
The General
His Girl Friday
The Gold Rush
The Kid
The Lady Vanishes

Night of the Living Dead
Plan Nine from Outer Space
Reefer Madness
Sita Sings the Blues
A Star Is Born
The Stranger
Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans
