We’re doing things a little differently with our Weird Watch Parties this month. We’re going to schedule two Amazon Prime watch parties in a row. Assuming there’s enough interest, our next  parties will be scheduled for Saturday, September 19 and September 26 at 10:15 PM.

As always, we’ll be looking for five movie screening nominations from people who plan to attend (for both or either session). After we get the minimum five nominations and likely attendees, we’ll put up a poll. We’ll then schedule the poll’s second place vote-getter to be screened on September 19 and the first place contestant on September 26. Management will break any ties.

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 also dug the clouds. Very tidy.

      I mostly enjoyed it for Jonathan Aris’ turn as the estate agent. (And I enjoyed the rest of it rather well, too.)

  1. Baikonur

    It’s about a guy who finds an amnesiac French astronaut who has crashed and convinced her that they’re married. I’ve not seen this but really enjoyed two others by director Veit Helmer—Tuvalu and Absurdistan.

    And I’ll throw out The Carpenter again…

    1. Oh…should’ve given my question a second thought. I guess you mean a film called “The Carpenter”, not a John Carpenter film that you might have mentioned before, sorry.

  2. I have an Amazon Prime free trial, so I think I will be able to join next week. I won’t be able to participate on Amazon after next week though.

    I nominate THE FORBIDDEN ROOM.
