What is a Public Domain Movie?

Public domain refers to the body of creative works and knowledge in which no person, government or organization has any proprietary interest such as a copyright. These works are considered part of the public cultural heritage and may be freely used by all.  However please be aware that although the movies may be in the public domain, the summaries are not. I wrote them, they are copyright protected, and should not be copied and used elsewhere.

Please Note: This page lists public domain horror movies in alphabetical order, by their title. If you want to see the movies listed by their year of release click here.
