Title: Weird Movies...

Discuss your favorite weird movies or scenes from films. You can post clips if you wish. I will begin with this gem.

Sorry, I know nothing about the genre.  :tongueout: I hear some guy out there has a pretty comprehensive list of them, though...

I'll add Mulholland Drive, The Game and Eyes Wide Shut to the list

Ah, what the hell. Here's my channel's playlist. Should be several hours worth of clips and trailers on there.

Aah, I have quite a few of these.

1. Eraserhead (David Lynch)
2. El Topo (Alejandro Jodorowski)
3. The Holy Mountain (Alejandro Jodorowski, and even weirder than the other one)
4. Mirrormask (Dave McKean - Weird, almost nightmarish, but without lack of certain beauty. I mean... yeah, weird.)
5. Zazie dans le métro (French movie from Louis Malle. Hilariously weird, but masterly directed.)
6. The Zero Theorem (Terry Gillian, and almost all his movies, by the way.)
7. Existenz (David Cronenberg. Got mixed reviews, but I enjoyed it.)
8. Naked Lunch (David Cronenberg again. A masterpiece of the weirdness. Only the bug makes me sick.)
9. Scanner (David Cronenberg, yes, sorry, once again. Not that weird compared to the other two. However, the exploding head remains THE cult scene from his entire work.)
10. La Cabina (Antonio Mercero. Short Spanish jewel shot during the early seventies, which passed through the censors of Franco's dictatorship God knows how.)
11. Cloud Atlas (Tom Tykwer, Lana and Andy Wachowski. When weird also means great beauty.)
12. Blue Velvet (David Lynch. Brutal and disturbing weird, but good story and masterly directed nonetheless.)
13. El ángel exterminador (Luis Buñuel. Very disturbing movie. But not as weird as the one that follows.)
14. Un chien andalou (Luis Buñuel. God, now, that's weird. Cult scene: the eye and the razor blade. Ough!!)
15. Delicatessen (Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Weird for sure, but unprecedentedly good. I believe it is reviewed in BadMovies.org. I must disagree with the web-master. That's definitely not a bad movie.)

And I still have more which I cannot think about at the moment. I'll try to refresh my list once in a while.

A recent weird movie is the independent film Upstream Color (2013).  Almost singlehandedly written, produced, directed, shot by and starring Shane Carruth, it is a remarkable and bizarre movie that screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival.  I've watched it many times and still get a thrill out of it.

I stopped posting links to my site's reviews here since I seldom got any clicks, but since a few of you are interested in weird movies, you can check out our latest review (main text not by me):

Not a deep cut, but if you haven't seen it yet and you like weird movies you should track it down.

Rev, that movie looked like all kinds of weird.  I couldn't bring myself to watch what looked like a cross between Castaway, Weekend at Bernie's and Brokeback Mountain.  Interesting review, though.

Definately agree with Eraserhead. Lynch's movies are always on the twisted side.
I don't really consider Eyes Wide Shut 'weird" but it is eccentric and it's one of my top 10.
I think Gummo belongs on the list.

Our featured weird movie for Thanksgiving at 366 Weird Movies is one you all should know: BLOOD FREAK.

(Trailer is NSFW for gore/violence)

This Wednesday's pick is one that is mentioned on this thread.

I'd like to see THE DISTANCE, but it's rare, and I have a huge stack of recommendations to plow through anyway.

For sheer over the top weirdness, it hard to beat the Japanese.  I own a film called HELLDRIVER that is quite possibly the MOST bizarre film I have ever seen; certainly in the top 3.

Omg, so much cool stuff to track down!

You want weird?  I got weird.  The Bed Sitting Room (1969).  A very surreal comedy written by Spike Milligan about a future in which a short nuclear war causes all manner of bizarre things to happen.  In a Kafkaeque plotline, someone mutates into a bed sitting room.

The writer uses poor English, and I personally wouldn't qualify all of those as 2016 releases. Some of them only played film festivals and very few people had a chance to see them (including me). That said, they're not bad choices.

I recommend THE LURE and SWISS ARMY MAN unconditionally. (THE LURE was even picked up by the Criterion Collection for a 2017 release). I recommend THE GREASY STRANGLER only if you love grossouts and want to see Tim & Eric mixed with John Waters.

Here's our list for comparison: http://366weirdmovies.com/10-weirdest-movies-of-2016/. (http://366weirdmovies.com/10-weirdest-movies-of-2016/.) We classify movies as belonging to the year they're first widely screened, either in theaters or home video. That guy must have considered THE LOBSTER as a 2105 release, I don't see how he could have passed over it otherwise.

The Triangle (2016)

Firstly if you're looking for a big payoff there isn't one and also it's in the found footage section of the horror movie asylum (yes the dead left toe of that 98yo woman). Setup wise it kind of reminded me of Apocalyptic (which is just about bearable flick, probably because David Macrae kills it imo): outsider journalist crew gains access to odd remote cult/movement. Don't expect many answers if any with this just a s**tload of questions with spooky implications. Deserves a spot on the freaky weird horror list though.
