Must see weird movies

Mon Jul 23, 2018 12:43 pm

I don't have much time for watching movies these days, but I might sit down once a month and watch one. Lately I've picked complete rubbish.

What's a good weird movie that you think is a must watch?

I'm not after run of the mill predictable plots. I want something that smacks you between the eyes without you realising it until the end.

Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive?
Both Lynch.
By the way, I'm a huge Lynch fan. So imho all his films are worth watching. Yes Dune also.

Also you may take a look at Alexandro Jodorowsky's "The Holy Mountain" and "El Topo". Those two films are on Amazon Prime Video streaming platform, that is a really valuable source for rubbish, kitsch and B / C-Movies.

Getting on more recent movies, may I suggest Arrival, that I liked very much; "the Witch", because I may be in love with Anya Taylor-Joy, same for "Split", but not only for the in love thing; Guillermo del Toro's "Mama" and "Pan's Labyrinth"; "Moon" 's also a masterpiece imho, "The Manchurian Candidate" (2004)

On the Masterpiece list, war movies section, "Platoon", "Apocalypse Now", "Rambo" (the first chapter)

If you want to have a good laugh may I suggest John Carpenter's "They Live", it's a B-Movie (not for me), that eventually became a cult movie

... there will be light....

Awesome movie.

I nominate "Hentai Kamen".

Kyosuke is the son of a fallen cop and a dominatrix. Although tall and strong, he has little self-confidence or fighting skills. One day, a twist of fate leads him to a hostage situation involving the new transfer student, Aiko Himeno. During Kyosuke's infiltration to try to help save the hostages, he learns by chance that wearing women's used underwear on his face awakens the dormant powers of his dominatrix mother and, combined with the influence of his policeman father's strong sense of justice, transforms him into a superhero - Hentai Kamen

I recently watched the Spanish movie Contratiempo on Netflix. A business men is found with his death mistress, and during the movie he is preparing his defence with his lawyer. It's a whodunit movie, but this time seen from the eyes of the accused instead of the police/prosecutor. I can't tell you much more without spoiling mayor plot points. This is definately a movie to see "unspoiled".

Blood and Concrete, A Love Story- A car thief and a punk rocker fall in love as they become embroiled in deaths attributed to an aphrodisiac (from IMDB). Also features Mark Pellegrino in a very early role.

Lifeforce- What would normally be a "B"-movie script is given a blockbuster budget and stupendously good special effects from before the days of CGI. Features Patrick Stewart prior to Star Trek.

Ok. This takes the cake. I started reading the plot line and I was like "ok yeah this is pretty weird" It got progressively weirder as I went on. Even when I thought it couldn't continue to get any worse I read the last line. +1 internets to you.
