Public Domain Torrents is a website that has free online movies available for download.

Although most of these movies require you to download a torrent file, it's completely legal and free to download movies at Public Domain Torrents.

Public Domain Torrents often behaves erratically. Try a different free movie streaming website if you can't get this one to work.

Public Domain Torrents Free Movie Downloads

There are tons of great movie genres at Public Domain Torrents. You can find movies listed under drama, horror, musical, and westerns, to name just a few. Dozens can even be streamed so you don't have to download them (they're listed here).

You can filter through all the movies to find the most shared movies and the most recently added movies. This makes it easy to find the most popular and newest movies available.

Public Domain Torrents Video Quality

Because these movies are shared via torrents, the quality of each download is different. I tested a few movies and found their quality to be as decent as a regular DVD movie.

Benefits of Registering With Public Domain Torrents

The only benefit of registering with Public Domain Torrents is that you can rate movies and leave your own comment.

If you don't register, you're still able to download every movie torrent.

Where Public Domain Torrents Gets Its Movies

Public Domain Movies is able to release movies when the copyright expires or the original owners don't renew their copyright.

It's important to realize that movies at Public Domain Torrents aren't automatically legal. Although the intent of the website is to provide legal downloads, some torrents may be outdated, and thus the information regarding the copyright of certain movies may also be outdated. This means some movies at Public Domain Torrents may actually not be publicly available.

Pay For Movies With Public Domain Torrents

Instead of downloading movies from Public Domain Torrents, you can optionally buy a physical DVD with the movies preloaded on it. This is available for every title.

There's also an option to buy every single movie available at Public Domain Torrents on one massive external hard drive.
