Celebrate your independence from ordinariness!

MESHES OF THE AFTERNOON (1943): Certified Weird! "For fifteen minutes you are trapped in this psychic fugue; it’s a wonderfully intense and insistent experience, but you’ll be relieved when Maya’s magic mirror finally shatters and you can cut yourself free from these nightmare filaments. The film’s protagonist is, perhaps, not so free."

YOUR GUIDE TO TROMA ON YOUTUBE: Compiled by badmovies.org's own Fulci420!

PROMETHEUS (2012): "Like Blade Runner, Scott's Prometheus is sci-fi pop theology picture that asks unanswered questions, which,of course, is the most appealing kind of theology."-AE

THE THREE FETISHES: TRANSFORMATION AND ETHICAL ENGAGEMENT IN WALTER MURCH'S RETURN TO OZ (1985): Don't let the title scare you! "There was one other notable film drawn from [the Oz] mythology, however, and it vibrates with richness and rabid weirdness. This is director Walter Murch’s 1985 Return to Oz, a film sentenced by the cruel hand of circumstance to obscurity and cult status." Guest essay by Jesse Miksic.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

Ju-like?

THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE (1962): "The Brain that Wouldn’t Die bypasses the rational portion of the frontal cortex and directly stimulates the part of the brain that responds to misogynist daydreams and deformed mutants in closets."

THE EARLY FILMS OF ROBERT DOWNEY, SR. (A PRINCE): "Looking at the ultra-conventional career of Sherlock Holmes/Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr., it’s hard to imagine that this talented but timid McMoviestar was sired by a disreputable ultracool beatnik hepcat."

THE RAPE OF THE VAMPIRE (1968): "Rape of the Vampire acts like it wants to be the Un Chien Andalou of lesbian vampire movies; it can’t quite reach those lofty aspirations, but it does have fun trying."

THE COLLECTIVE VOLUME 4: EMOTIONS (2012): "If Indiana has a reputation at all in the independent film scene, it is for its endless crop of ultra low-grade horror corn."-AE

FANTASTIC PLANET (1973): Certified Weird! "The Terry Gilliam-meets-Salvador Dalí-in-space animation combined with the acidic prog-rock soundtrack encourages (or even precipitates) altered states of viewing, but Fantastic Planet is more than just an astral trip."

SATURDAY MORNING WITH SID & MARTY KROFFT: "Sid and Marty Krofft stuck to their idiosyncratic formula, which was characterized by prepubescent heroes and heroines, puppet comedy relief, knee-tapping kitsch songs and (badly) canned laughs from the laugh track."

BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD (2012): "With the lines between reality and fantasy artfully blended and fascinating waterlogged landscapes, the film is as much a visual treat as it is an environmental parable."-AK

The Poisonous Image in WISCONSIN DEATH TRIP (1999): "...a dreamy, dissociative experience, the ramblings of a ghost walking through a funhouse of bad mojo."-JM

"Saturday Morning With Sid and Marty Krofft"....now there's a fun memory. Their over-the-top schtick was a staple in our house. Wink

Ju made your bed, July in it...

BAD GIRLS GO TO HELL (1965): "...protagonist Meg (Gigi Darlene) might be soulmate to Kafka’s Josef K, moving numbly through an inverted, anti-fairy tale nightmare told by John Waters at his copping-an-attitude best."

READER'S CHOICE POLL: HELP PICK TWO MORE MOVIES TO GO ON THE FINAL LIST OF 366

PUTNEY SWOPE (1969): "..retains a razor-like satirical focus while simultaneously dealing in jokes that, for the most part, are so nonsensical that Monty Python would have rejected them for being too oblique and absurd."

CINEMA 16: EUROPEAN SHORT FILMS: "Experiments, whether visual or narrative, that might grow wearisome at 90 minutes can be refreshing at under 15 minutes, and directors can indulge their outré aesthetic impulses without fear of alienating audiences and distributors."

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
