THE 2017 VERSION OF THE 366 WEIRD MOVIES YEARBOOK IS (FINALLY) HERE!

Every year we promise to get the previous year’s Yearbook out sooner, and every year it ends up debuting sometime in the middle of the following year. We did manage to get it out a few days sooner this time, in May, at least. Longtime readers and collectors have learned to live with these delays. Fortunately, the movies examined herein are still fresh and weird.

As always, the recycled ad copy speaks for itself:

Covering everything weird, from art house surrealism to next-generation cult movies to so-bad-they’re-weird B-movie atrocities, 366 Weird Movies has been meeting all of your weird movie needs since 2009 with a combination of sly humor and serious insight. This is our annual Yearbook covering all the weird movies released and re-released in 2017, from “The Bad Batch” to “We Are the Flesh”, with 35 full-length reviews, extensive capsules and supplemental listings, and exclusive interviews with gore maestro Yoshihiro Nishimura (“Tokyo Gore Police” and the upcoming “Kodoku Meatball Machine”), the director and crew of the genre hit “Lowlife,” and others. If it’s weird, it’s a movie, it’s from 2017, and 366 Weird Movies covered it, you’ll find it here!

You can buy the 366 Weird Movies 2017 Yearbook here. Don’t forget that it’s also available (for a mere $3.49!) in a Kindle version.

All profits derived from your kind purchase will go towards paying our hosting costs. Any leftover monies will be wasted on G. Smalley’s relentless and desperate pursuit of hedonistic excess: an ocean of gin, a parade of cheap floozies, and impulsive weird movie purchases that leave him feeling physically spent, but empty and soulless. Good times!

Next year, let’s aim for an April 2019 release! Even though we say this every year, next year it’s doable!

366 DISTRIBUTION RELEASES “MONDO ART”

For immediate release

Mondo ArtFamed Palm Beach art critic “Indio” travels around the United States and Mexico showcasing some of the most shocking and disturbing art forms ever captured on Super 8 film! A feminist art film about a chauvinist penis houseplant, “Ammo Sexual” paintings, nudist colony body painting, a suicide artist’s final masterpiece, insane asylum creations, and a graphic live on-stage body piercing performance are just of a few of the chapters in this twisted, 1960s-style mondo grindhouse film.

366 Weird Movies is proud to add Mondo Art to our catalog of truly weird, truly independent underground films.

Currently available on DVD or video-on-demand (the current download-to-own price is $2.50, for a short time only).

366 DISTRIBUTION RELEASES “WAY DOWN IN CHINATOWN” ON DVD, INSTANT VIDEO

For immediate release

From director Eric Michael Kochmer, producers Jonathan Haloosim and James Anthony Cotton, associate producer Maria Olsen, co-produced by the We Make Movies collective and MOnsterworks66 comes Way Down in Chinatown, featuring Lisa Loring, “Wednesday” from the original “Addams Family” TV show.

“The team who put this film together certainly succeeded in their mission if it was to leave the viewer disturbed.” – Stuart Hine

THE STORY: Playwright Victor Mitchum and theater director Jessica Mitchum work exceedingly hard at creating new and innovative work for the theater. As they venture into their new dark musical, “Apocalypse Tomorrow” (inspired by Leadbelly’s “Goodnight Irene”) they suddenly find themselves seduced by the underworld that is being created to preserve the few.

Annie, an elusive temptress with the voice of a worm-like angel, slithers her way into Victor’s soul, causing a rift in his marriage to Jessica, who is equally lured by an ominous mirror image of herself, (Mara). Both of the possessed protagonists descend morally before they are compelled to walk downtown and face the underground theater, and themselves, for possibly the last time.

Way Down in Chinatown is a surrealistic horror film in the same vein as Eraserhead and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The film can be classified as a black and white, Expressionist noir. Influenced by Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, Jean Luc Godard’s Alphaville, and Rainer Wener Fassbinder’s Veronica Voss, Chinatown takes elements from all these classics and melds them into a catastrophic delight to watch.

REVIEWS:

“…avant garde at its finest… there really is no middle ground with this film. Either you love it or you hate it. I say enjoy it for what it is.”
– STEPHANIE NETT, Midnight Reverie

“…as original a sci-fi thriller as you’re likely to see… It’s a polarizing film, it’s one that you will love or hate but whatever your reaction it’ll get the grey matter working harder than any movie you’ll see this year.”
– JONATHAN BAXTER, Knifed in Venice

“Think film noir add a dash of Sci-Fi throw in some disturbing scenes in the style of Eraserhead mixed with a squeeze of A Clockwork Orange and you have WAY DOWN IN CHINATOWN.”
– MOLLY GORE, Kensington Gore”

“Surreal, impressionistic, and irrevocably bizarre, Kochmer’s artistic approach to the eccentric is reminiscent of a David Lynch expose.”
– DAVE GAMMON, Horror News

“To be honest with you I can’t really say what this flick is about. And I’ve seen it twice already!”
-TOMMY SORDERBERG, The Flick Fanatic’s Companion

366 WEIRD MOVIES 2013 YEARBOOK IS HERE! (BUT ONLY THE KINDLE VERSION)

We’re a third of the way through 2014, which can only mean one thing: it’s time for us to publish a Weird Movies Yearbook covering the previous year’s bizarre cinema! The print issue still needs formatting and will arrive in a few weeks, but we’re happy to announce the Kindle e-book version is now live:

366 Weird Movies 2013 Yearbook (Kindle) Per the ad copy: “Covering everything weird, from art house surrealism to next-generation cult movies to so-bad-they’re-weird B-movie atrocities, 366 Weird Movies has been meeting all of your weird movie needs since 2009 with a combination of sly humor and serious insight. This is our annual Yearbook covering all the weird movies released and re-released in 2013, from The ABC’s of Death to Zeta One, with over 45 full-length reviews, extensive supplemental listings, and exclusive interviews and director’s statements. If it’s weird, and it’s a movie, and it’s from 2013, and 366 Weird Movies covered it, you’ll find it here.” The delightful cover image is from Strange Frame: Love & Sax.

If you’re a regular reader and you appreciate what we do here, this is a great way to show some gratitude for mooching off our weird movie knowledge for an entire year. Royalties from each sale will be given to reviewers and used to purchase either one domestic beer, or 2/3 of an import/craft beer, or, in Alfred Eaker‘s case, 1/2 of a Bloody Mary—we keep advising him to go with the house-brand vodka, and he keeps telling us where we can stuff our cocktail onions. Reviewers based in Colorado and Washington may opt to dedicate their royalties towards greener purchases, if you know what we mean. Teetotalers and those in recovery are objects of pity around the 366 World Headquarters; they can spend their pittance on whatever it is sober people buy (probably love, or justice, or something hoighty-toighty like that).
