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...

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.

THE LOVED ONE (1965) certainly should be on that list

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Ghosts Of Edendale(2004)

Strange film about a home hosting ghosts from Tom Mix's ranch that still show up for some debauched fun even at the current owner's expense..

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.

http://366weirdmovies.com/258-blood-freak-1972/

https://youtu.be/VoU4TT8-frU

(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.
