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.
The summer doldrums are officially here, with no wierd theatrical or home video releases to speak of. Things will pick up a little next week. In the meantime, you’ll have to keep an eye out for screenings near you, and enjoy the new trailer for the restored version of Andrei Tarkovsky‘s minimalist sic-fi masterpiece Stalker .
