Next week, look for reviews of the depressing indie drama Frownland (2007), the new-to-DVD nautical psychological thriller Triangle (2009), and that blast of classic gory kitsch from the past, Basket Case (1982).
After a disappointingly conventional week in terms of strange search terms, the Internet has bounced back with some genuinely odd search requests that eventually led people to our site. Although it’s hard to top a confusing search term like “pipeline from the Egyptian cinema pornographic video available,” sometimes simpler is better. For that reason, we choose “animated worm rape” as our weirdest search term for the week. Congratulations to the winner!
