WEIRD HORIZON FOR THE WEEK OF 10/13/2017

Our weekly look at what’s weird in theaters, on hot-off-the-presses DVDs, and on more distant horizons…

Trailers of new release movies are generally available at the official site links.

IN THEATERS (LIMITED RELEASE):

Sylvio (2017): The story of a small-town gorilla stuck in a debt collection job, who dreams of starting a puppet show. Premiered at SWSX and earned a very limited theatrical run (in NYC and Baltimore, with a few more small festivals to go). Sylvio official site.

NEW ON DVD:

The Lure (2015): Read Alex Kittle’s festival review. The Criterion Collection wisely snapped up this mermaid horror musical and gives it their special treatment, with interviews, deleted scenes, and two shorts. Buy The Lure.

NEW ON BLU-RAY:

The Lure (2015): See description in DVD above. Buy The Lure [Blu-ray].

CERTIFIED WEIRD (AND OTHER) REPERTORY SCREENINGS:

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975). We won’t list all the screenings of this audience-participation classic separately. You can use this page to find a screening near you.
