The majority of flicks cost either £2.50 or £3.50 for a 48-hour pass and buyers have 30 days to start watching the content.

It's not all scraping away at the wallet, though. Classics such as Nosferatu and Vampyr, to more modern favourites, such as Revolver and Wild Things, are all up for grabs at no cost whatsoever.
