WEIRD HORIZON FOR THE WEEK OF 3/30/2018

Our weekly look at what’s weird in theaters, on hot-off-the-presses DVDs and Blu-rays (and hot off the server VODs), and on more distant horizons…

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

NEW ON HOME VIDEO:

Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988): Read our review. Minor, but kulty, spoof of 50s alien invasion horrors, with klowns replacing little green men. Arrow Video puts out a typically lavish Blu-ray with numerous interviews, deleted scenes, and new transfers of the Chiodo brothers’ early 8mm shorts. Buy Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

Scanners (1981): This horror about telepaths who can explode your head with a though is not one of ‘s weirder efforts; we actually mention this release more because of the inclusion of his experimental student film Stereo (which is set at the “Canadian Academy for Erotic Inquiry”) as a bonus feature. Criterion released the DVD in 2014; four years later, here’s the Blu-ray. Buy Scanners.

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.

FREE MOVIES ON TUBI.TV:

Pi (1998): Read the Certified Weird review! A corporation and the world’s toughest gang of Hasidic Jews try to keep a mathematics genius from revealing the God number. Watch Pi free on Tubi.TV.

  1. No mention of Best F(r)iends Part 1? (The movie with a limited theater run this weekend with Greg Sestero and Tommy Wiseau.)

    I just watched it myself and, while it’s probably not weird enough for the list, it’s definitely weird enough to be mentioned on the weekly report. (Also, it looks like Part 2 is going to be even weirder by a lot.) I recommend it.
