Kino Cult AVOD Service Celebrates One-Year Anniversary With ‘Weird Cinema’ Double Features

The Kino Cult ad-supported streaming service is celebrating its first anniversary in October with 31 curated double-features aimed at reviving “the spirit of the midnight movie and providing a sampling of the unapologetically weird cinema that has become Kino Cult’s trademark,” parent company Kino Lorber said.

Each Thursday at midnight, Kino Cult will introduce a pair of new films to its collection, expanding its partnerships with genre film labels Severin Films, Synapse Films and Vinegar Syndrome. New titles include work by Dario Argento (Phenomena, Tenebrae), Curtis Harrington (The Killing Kind), a sampling of Filipino exploitation (The Thirsty Dead, Blood Thirst), and classic 1980s grindhouse titles (Don’t Go in the Woods, The Executioner Part II). The month-long event will climax on Halloween night with Dario Argento and Lamberto Bava’s iconic Italian horror saga Demons and Demons 2.

Tuesdays remain dedicated to “Tune In, Turn On,” Kino Cult’s weekly programming slot for mind-bending and psychedelic cinema.

Kino Cult is a free, ad-supported streaming service that is available as apps for Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Google TV, iOS, Android, LG Smart TV, and via desktop and mobile at It is also available as a 24/7 linear FAST (Free Ad-Supported TV) channel with carriage on Plex, DistroTV, Rad TV, TCL, and on the Kino Cult apps and website.
