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 or My Neighbor Wants Me Dead). 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. 15 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. 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. I intended to add The Love Witch, but since it’s already taken by someone else with extraordinary taste (I think, I haven’t seen it), I’ll nominate Urusei Yatsura 2.

  2. Still looking for one more RSVP/nomination.

    And I think I have bad news, James. I don’t see a watch party option for Borgman. It looks like it’s not in Prime’s regular free streaming library but in some “watch free with ads” category I haven’t seen before.

    1. ah no worries, i hope it gets reconsidered for your list someday. not the weirdest but really well done.
