We love movies and we love them even more if they are free. Right? If you open your web browser and type free movie download websites, you’ll be presented with a long list of illegal websites promising to grab your favorite blockbuster in a matter of seconds. We are here with a list of some free movie download websites where you can get some quality entertainment without paying any money.

 

1. The Internet Archive

You’ll be surprised to find The Internet Archive sitting at the top of our free movie download websites. It like a goldmine to download free movies, music, and books. This list includes the original Jungle Book, Farewell to Arms, Iron Mask, Night of the Living Dead, The Brother from Another Planet, etc.

About 4-5 years ago, The Internet Archive just provided direct links and often the movie downloads failed as the file sizes were large. Thanks to the torrent links, now you can easily enjoy and download hundreds of movies without spending a penny. The overall catalog found on this website is continuously growing and new content is added every day.

This free movie download site also allows creating a free virtual library card which grants you access to forums, the ability to upload videos, bookmark favorite content, etc.

2. Watch TCM

As an added benefit, many movie studios and streaming services offer free access to movie websites if you have an active cable subscription. Out of all such free offerings, Turner Classic Movies’ TCM features the best collection of movies. Called Watch TCM, this service lets you watch an unlimited number of free movies with either a cable or satellite package.

Some of the most popular feature films on Watch TCM are Gone With The Wind, Westworld, Casablanca, etc. What makes TCM even better is the availability of dedicated apps for Android, iOS, Apple TV, etc. The service also contains articles, information about artists, short movies, and lists of movie recommendations.

3. Hotstar

Having talked about American viewers and the availability of free movies for them in the YouTube section, let’s talk about Indian/Hindi content. Even though paid services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are focusing more and more on the Indian audience, Hotstar remains a good source of free streaming and movie download for offline streaming.

This free movie download site’s catalog has a good amount of popular Indian movies like Housefull, Raid, Kaabil, Jolly LLB, Bodyguard, and more. The interface of the service is pretty neat and there’s a well-designed app as well. Moreover, Hotstar is also great for watching Indian TV shows, sports, and news for free.



4. The Korean Film Archive

The Korean Film Archive on YouTube is a hidden gem that cinephiles will surely appreciate. Named Korean Classic Film, this official channel contains more than 200 classic Korean movies right from the 1930s onwards. With the increasing popularity of Korean cinema in the West, this channel is the perfect way to explore the classic works of South Korean Cinema.

Some of the notable works streaming for free are The Day A Pig Fell Into The Well, Aimless Bullet, A Drawf Launches A Little Ball, Sopyonje, etc. All the movies come with English subtitles, so you don’t have to worry about the language barrier. If you love cinema, go ahead and give these free movies a try — you won’t be disappointed.
