People continue to show up to watch weird movies and we haven’t quite exhausted Netflix’s catalogue yet, so we’re proposing a week 9 party.
We’re asking for nominations for a movie to watch partly because we love making polls, but mainly as a means to gauge interest. If we get five suggestions from people planning to attend, then we’ll know it’s worth hosting.
You can nominate something you nominated before, but not something we watched in a previous party: so no The Platform, April and the Extraordinary World, The Bad Batch, Skins [Pieles], Under the Skin, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Enemy, or A Ghost Story.
We’ll tentatively set aside May 23 at 10:15 PM EST for this one. If you have feedback suggesting a different start time we’ll listen.
Just like previous weeks, we’ll open it up to reader suggestions until we get five or more candidates, then put up a poll to vote on which movie to screen. Only films in Netflix’s catalog are eligible. We don’t have to watch a Canonically Weird movie together, but just for your convenience, we’re reasonably sure these are all the (previously unscreened by us) ones available on the service at the moment: The Lobster (2015), Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997), Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), A Serious Man (2009), Sin City (2005), Swiss Army Man (2016), and The Wicker Man (1973). Also available: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), which we had accidentally omitted from previous lists. Feel free to nominate any of these, or ignore them in favor of other selections.
To join, you’ll need a U.S. Netflix account, a Chrome-based browser (Brave works) and the Netflix Party extension.
