Hello dear reader and welcome to SciFinds.com, a website that is meant to showcase science fiction movies you can watch for free online. Collected from a variety of sources, the movies you will find on the site tend to be of the B-movie variety, the sort that once filled the late-night time slots on your local TV channel and formerly would be the opening film before the main feature at the drive-in theatre or neighbourhood movie palace.

Many of these movies are cheesy by modern standards, and might have been just as cheesy for the audiences that saw them during their first run, but plenty of them show flashes of inspiration and imagination that continue to entertain audiences today.

Not everything on SciFinds is a mouldy, black and white cheesefest. You’ll stumble across the occasional 21st-century film that was actually filmed in the 21st century.

The site is arranged into a bunch of broad categories to help you discover movies that match the mood you’re in so if you fancy watching mad scientists, alien invasions or monstrous monsters, we’ve got you covered. We’ve also tagged the content to further classify it if you might prefer something dubbed from Italy or a post-apocalyptic adventure. If all else fails, you can try a text search and see what comes up or simply watch something at random. If it doesn’t tickle your fancy, try the next one on the list because we’ve got loads of movies to choose from.

Don’t forget to comment on any of the movies you’ve watched on SciFinds to share your opinions and insights with other viewers and tell your friends about us so they can join in on the fun. If you’ve got links to any other free movies that you think should be on the site, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Who am I? Capt. Xerox, your erstwhile host and long-time science fiction fan who’s old enough to have seen at least a few of these ancient movies in the theatre, maybe not when they were originally released, but definitely when they were a common source of Saturday morning programming at the corner movie theatre where my one-dollar allowance would not only gain me admittance to the double-feature, but would also afford me to buy a drink, popcorn and chocolate bar at the concession stand then give me enough change to go to the corner store afterwards to get another bottled drink where I would return the bottle to use the two-cent deposit to buy some penny candy.

That early exposure fueled a life-long love of science fiction, whether it be in the form of books, short stories, TV shows or movies, both low- and high-brow. Ages ago, I started a dial-up BBS system called the BBS at the End of the Universe for local fans to discuss their favourites and I discovered a lot of new writers, movies and shows from the people I met online. Eventually that community moved to the Internet in the form of the Website and the End of the Universe, a blog that has gone through all kind of transformations during its history where it’s today mostly an archive of links of interest to sci-fi fans that I periodically tweet out.  There’s even a Facebook page which is named, of course, The FB Page at the End of the Universe.

So why SciFinds? Think of it as a spin-off for fans who are especially fond of old-time, science fiction movies who want to find a place where they can discover new films to watch and share them with like-minded individuals. I’ll also be periodically reviewing some of the movies you watch here to give you an idea of what you’re getting yourself into before you click on the play button.

On with the show!
