Suggestions for some bizarre movies to watch

66 posts in this topic

The kind that make you uneasy, uncomfortable, and make you want to take a shower afterwards.

Any good suggestions ?

I can think of several very unusual films that cut beneath the surface of ordinary existence

Stalker (1979) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079944/ - a russian sci-fi set in a bleak dystopian industrial landscape

Santa Sangre (1989) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098253/ - I only saw it once but its a genuinely weird and sad film about a young man and his mother who both use to be circus performers. The young mans mother has no arms he becomes her arms against his will...

Blue Velvet (1986) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090756/ - Great and weird film from David Lynch

Alice (Neco z Alenky) (1988) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095715/ - this is the most surreal adaptation of the Lewis Carrol novel from Czechoslovakia.

Eraserhead... so weird and bizarre that we all piled into a car and drove into town during a tornadic storm to watch a real movie, rather than keep watching it...

Hmmm... Oldboy was a bit of an oddity. The live octopus scene is a bit hairs-on-the-back-of-the-neck-arise...

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is certainly loopy enough that you have to watch it a couple of times to get what's going on. Very entertaining though.

The Misanthropist by Ted "Nocturno Culto". Nothing uncomfortable, but incredibly strange.

Angel Heart was kinda weird, and Extro was even weirder

Oh god, Xtro!!! Definitely a weird film with a capital WEI!

Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble by John Waters is strange.Though I liked Polyester with Divine and Tab Hunter.

Lust in the Dust with Divine was a new take on westerns.Think Tab Hunter was also in it and so was Lainie Kazan and Ceasar Romero

Involves some treasure map tattooed on Divine's butt.

Society and The Faculty.

Both of them are freakier than John Carpenter's The Thing.

Simbi I actually own Cronos lol, but another one that desturbed me to know end was BUG with Ashley Judd, WOW is all I have to say about that one. Oh and When I saw Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer I felt dirty after it was over. I saw something and it was about the making of Henry, the director said everybody that had anything to do with the movie is definately going to hell simply because the movie is sooooo sick. LMAO

Dead Ringers.

Edit to add: Which, although mentioned, I would disagree with it being 'sick'. Just a very well-done film which makes one feel uncomfortable and question the ideas of identity and dependency. And anyone who likes Lynch's stuff should check out Guy Maddin.
