Discover the best free movies streaming on Crackle now

Crackle might just be the best kept secret of the streaming world. It’s entirely free and offers more than 250 TV shows and feature-length films, and what’s more, it doesn’t even require you to register an account in order to begin watching content. So, instead of stocking up on Top Ramen or stealing ketchup packets from your local McDonald’s to cut costs, you can simply stream with Crackle and save yourself the monthly cost associated with landmark streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu.

So, what are the setbacks? Surprisingly, there aren’t very many. You will have to endure some commercials here and there, and if you only watch the newest content available, then Crackle likely isn’t the site for you. The limited library primarily consists of oldies culled from Sony’s collection, though it’s peppered with goodies you can stream via the accompanying app available for both iOS and Android. There’s even a dedicated app for PlayStation and Xbox consoles, which further renders the service as a great alternative to legal and illegal streaming sites alike. Conveniently, the smaller library allows for less time choosing and more time watching.  So sit back, relax, and get your Crackle on with one of the titles below.

Choose your genre:


Crackle Logo FinalShaun of the Dead

The zombie craze may be on the downslope, but we all know it will never die, and Shaun of the Dead might just be the best zombie movie of the 21st century. The British comedy takes us on a trip though zombie-infested London, with best friends Shaun (Simon Pegg) and Ed (Nick Frost) leading a small group of survivors. Cricket bat in hand, Shaun tries to become a zombie-slaying hero in an effort to prove his love for his fed-up girlfriend. With a staggering 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, Shaun of the Dead lies in the classics of “You haven’t seen that? What? You have to!”

Crackle Logo FinalFear and Loathing in Las Vegas

A chase for the American dream, Vegas at the height of the counterculture movement, and lots and lots of acid makes for a story so strange that only Hunter S. Thompson could tell it. Thompson’s character in the film, journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp), sets out on a trip to Vegas to cover a desert motorcycle race alongside one Benicio Del Toro, an equally conspicuous latino attorney. Taking advantage of the all expenses paid road trip, Duke rents a red Chevy convertible, gathers a trunk full of LSD — and practically anything that’ll get you high — and hits the California highway at ludicrous speeds. As hallucinations run wild, the story unfurls the highs and lows of a time of free speech, anti-establishment, and civil rights. For Thompson fans and anyone who can appreciate a free-spirited, mind-bending road trip to Vegas, this eccentric comedy is one to take a movie trip with.

Crackle Logo FinalThe Cable Guy

“I can be your best friend or your worst enemy,” or so says Ernie “Chip” Douglas, the deranged and manic star of The Cable Guy. One of Judd Apatow’s earliest productions, the dark comedy stars Jim Carrey as Chip and Matthew Broderick as his new friend and victim, Steve Kovacs. The iconic film takes a turn from goofball to black comedy when Steve starts to avoid Chip’s calls, thus igniting a sling of violent, vengeful outbursts from the cable guy. Directed by Ben Stiller, the film also features cameos from the likes of Owen Wilson and Jack Black, which will leave you laughing with the heebie-jeebies.

Crackle Logo FinalLock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

A huge hit in Britain, this fast talking crime comedy is kind of like Reservoir Dogs meets Pulp Fiction, but with a cockney twist. The story follows Eddy, a rough and tumble East London poker player, who makes a deadly decision and finds himself a half million in debt when he sits across the poker table from wealthy porn lord Harry Lonsdale. The story unfolds as Eddy attempts anything and everything to get the money, including hijacking a drug deal. This brash, cynical comedy evokes glamorized violence through director Guy Ritchie’s random shifts of film speed and rock n’ roll soundtrack. The Washington Post even once described the film as a special weapon unto itself, essentially highlighting the its cockney esprit and the way it peppers its audience with aggressive, sarcastic grapeshot. That’s English for “fun.”

Crackle Logo FinalStranger Than Fiction

The life of an IRS agent is far from exciting, but for Harold Crick, an unexpected voice flips his mundane world upside down. Harold Crick’s (Will Ferrell) overwhelmingly boring life takes a sharp, somewhat disembodied turn when he starts to hear voices … voices of an author who has written his life with a fatal ending.The ominous voice, who we find out to be author Karen Eiffel (Emma Thompson), begins narrating Crick’s every action, feeling, and soon announces death by bus. Desperate to change his fate, Harry begins living a life he never thought possible. The thought-stirring comedy weaves a moral-story of life, death and love as Ferrel proves his equally met talent for drama. A 3.5 out of 4 rating from Roger Ebert explains the film as, “such an uncommonly intelligent film does not often get made … which requires us to enter the lives of these specific quiet, sweet, worthy people.”
