An odd little movie is INTO THE BADLANDS. A weird story anthology with a continuing storyline in an old west setting. It starred Bruce Dern, Dylan McDermott, and Helen Hunt. The year of release was 1991.

Master Blaster,

Begotten!  I was going to mention the film, but couldn't for the life of me remember the name.  As you said, incrediably nightmarish

Caligula due to its attempt to be both a movie and a porno intersplices what can be interpreted as surreal sex with a maniacal Malcolm McDowell. Not a family movie though.

Drunken Wu Tang with the Watermelon monster is pretty weird. So is Fritz the Cat, but that cartoon is classic.

Try any of the experimental films of the 60's that were exhibited in city arthouses at the time. Andy Warhol made some pretty weird stuff. If you can find it, there's a film of a couple (husband, wife) who followed their cat around for 4 months and made a film of it. Pretty weird.

I say Forbidden Zone is the craziest one I've seen so far.

Thanks! That web site offers selections that are close to what I'm looking for. I'm just more interested in the dreamlike weirdness than I am in the disturbing gore weirdness. I'll watch "Meet the Feebles" over something like "My Bloody, Gory, Hatchet-Wielding-Yet-Still-So-Alluring Valentine" any day. Well, maybe not; with a title like that, I might not be able to pass it up...  ;P

Other movies that have come to mind as further examples:
"Mom and Dad Save the World"
"Twice Upon a Time"
"City of the Lost Children"

It freaks my wife out so bad she would'nt even let me keep a copy of it in the house. Maybe it's because I kept watching it on a continuous loop.

If you havent seen it already Clive Barker's early film the Forbidden is another good art flick. He did it with some friends back in 78. Almost all of it is shot in negative. It's basically just different weird sequences. The copy I had also had his film version of Solome on it, which was god awful, but he was a kid when he made it I think. That's what fast forward buttons are for.

I've always wanted to see the surrealists films. Is "Un chien andalou" the one with the infamous eyeball slitting scene? So far all I've seen of Dali's was the dream sequence from the Hitchcock flick Spellbound. I heard he also started up a sequence of Fantasia for Disney but never completed it.

Sweet Movie is another strange one.

And hey, Forbidden Zone just came out on DVD last year--probably one of my favorite movies.  They did a really good job with the DVD.

Blood Sucking Freaks isn't really a Troma film and the style is much different. Troma somehow got the rights to it and they put their name on it. With that being said it is definately one to see. Believe me because I don't like Troma films and never have. They are like artificial B-movies or something. Check out Blood Sucking Freaks.

NOTHING BUT TROUBLE and CLIFFORD are fun films. You might want to at CABIN BOY if you like those type of films.

GOZU sounds like a winner. Never even heard of it, but will put it on my list.

Tetsuo, The Iron Man was ok with the drill part and harsh in a weird way, but somehow I didn't like this film.

You can find EL TOPO on ebay. Some sellers have it available on a Region 0 NTSC DVD. You should be able to get one for $7 to $14 plus shipping. Xploited Cinema has several DVDs available for PAL and Region 2 NTSC from 29.95 and up. Here is a search for EL TOPO on eBay:

The films of Guy Maddin:  "Tales of The Gimli Hospital" and "The Saddest Music In the World" are wonderful, extreme examples of Strangeness as its own genre.
I love the Jodoworsky & Dali stuff too --
Nobody has mentioned "Le Sangre De Poete" (Blood of a Poet) 1934, by Jean Cocteau, who also gave the world "Beauty & Le Bete"(Beauty and The Beast), 1946, and "Orphee"(Orpheus) ten years later.
 . . . a scene in space and time:  A small boy comes into a Renaissance courtyard, in the snow.  A band of bullies confront him and throw snowballs at him.  As the snowballs strike his body, blood appears, and finally a statue in the courtyard becomes an animate Negro Insect Angel, with fibrous wings, who comes and rescues him, bearing him back up the stairs to where he existed in the past as a 17th Century artist who created a statue whose mouth became part of his own hand . . .
Jean Cocteau is/was an amazing graphic artist as well, who also designed buildings and subway stations & wrote & created any number of Modernist ouvres.
He is also reputed to be the last recorded patron of the Priorie de Sion, the keepers of the "real" Sante Sangre (The Blood of Christ) in the personhood of the Merovignian royal bloodline, the alleged bloodline of Chirst.
Also, anything from Bombay qualifies as "Strange Beyond Words" . . .

    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.
