We’re settling in to alternating 366’s Weird Watch parties between Amazon Prime and Netflix, and it’s Prime’s turn this week.

The procedure will be the same as with our Netflix parties: we’re looking for five people (not counting your host Gregory J. Smalley) to comment on this post if you are interested in attending. Likely attendees may also make a nomination from the Amazon Prime catalog for a movie to watch, but not something we’ve already watched (so far, that only means no Human Lanterns). After we cross the five attendees threshold, we’ll put up a poll with all the nominations and start voting to select which film we’ll screen. The Watch Party will tentatively be scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 1 at 10:15 PM ET; feel free to suggest a different time in the comments.

Amazon Prime’s catalog of movies is larger (and less exclusive) than Netflix’s. Ed Dykhuizen’s availability spreadsheet is a good resource to check for Canonically Weird movies (look for ones marked “free w/ Prime” in the “Amazon” column). Or, do your own research and come up with a title from Amazon. Readers have also made some suggestions in our latest contest thread. Eligible movies will have a “watch party” button on their Amazon page. You must be a Prime subscriber; you don’t have to download an extension or additional software.

We will not provide tech support; you’re on your own. Help each other.

When the party is set to begin we’ll announce it in three places:

  • On this site (if you’ve signed up for regular email alerts via the sidebar you’ll also get a notice that way)
  • On our Facebook page
  • On Twitter

Now, RSVP and make your nominations in the comments below.


  1. Though as host I won’t count for the RSVP threshold, I’ll nominate Angst for screening. The top viewer review on Amazon complains, ” Like Watching Mr. Bean Portraying A Serial Killer! RIDICULOUS!,” which sounds like the kind of thing this crowd might enjoy.

    1. I’ll nominate “Angst” to get it on the ballot. The movie’s almost perfect as far as I’m concerned, and if we end up watching it, I’ll tell you at the end what I thought needed changing.

  2. A Field In England because I haven’t seen it. Though Angst sounds disturbing and Nothing Really Happens has rad cover art.

  3. Ok, I’m going to nominate Come To Daddy. Haven’t seen it but it sounds interesting. Watched some of My Neighbor Wants Me Dead, very experimental for those considering it. I was also thinking about nominating Things, but the transfer is just really poor, but this is definitely a so bad it’s good movie in my opinion.
