Our weekly look at what’s weird in theaters, on hot-off-the-presses DVDs and Blu-rays (and hot off the server VODs), and on more distant horizons…
Trailers of new release movies are generally available at the official site links.
IN THEATERS (LIMITED RELEASE):
Broadcast Signal Intrusion (2021): A video technician investigates a sporadic series of eerie pirate broadcasts, leading him down a rabbit hole of conspiracy. Maybe a bit of a long-shot for “weird,” but it’s from The Signal), and the Videodrome comparisons will be inevitable. Broadcast Signal Intrusion official site.
NEW RELEASES STREAMING ONLINE:
Lamb (2021): Read our review. A24’s Icelandic folk-(kind of) horror will screen online for one night only, Tuesday, October 26, at 9 PM EDT. There should be some slight bonus content. Note that, if a similar event A24 held for The Green Knight earlier this year is any indication, the film will show up on regular VOD channels soon afterwards at a cheaper price. Buy tickets to Lamb at A24’s website.
NEW ON HOME VIDEO:
Dune (1984): Read our review. ‘s least favorite of his own movies gets a deluxe limited edition release consisting of a 4K UHD and a standard Blu-ray, an additional Blu packed with extra features, two booklets and a fold-out poster, all in steelbook packaging. If you’re asking yourself, “didn’t they just rerelease this in a limited edition August?,” you’ve got a great memory; and you should know there is actually another 4K Ultra release scheduled for December. Buy Dune.
“Yokai Monsters Collection”: A three-Blu box from Arrow containing four movies about the Japanese folkloric monsters known as yokai: the trilogy 100 Monsters (1968), Spook Warfare (1968), and Along with Ghosts (1969), plus ‘s kid-friendly series tribute The Great Yokai War (2005). Buy “Yokai Monsters Collection”.
CANONICALLY WEIRD (AND OTHER) REPERTORY SCREENINGS:
This section will no longer be updated regularly. Instead, we direct you to our new “Repertory Cinemas Near You” page. This week, we welcome back Oakland, CA’s New Parkway, who will celebrate Halloween with two screenings of the classic Nosferatu (1922), with a new live score performed by Sleepbomb. We’re also adding a new venue: Vancouver, B.C.’s Cinematheque, who will be featuring Eyes Without a Face [Les Yeux sans Visage] (1965) this upcoming Wednesday and Thursday, and Possession (1981) on Thursday (and wouldn’t that make an incredible double feature?) We will continue to mention exceptional events in this space from time to time.
WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE: Be sure to join us tomorrow night at 10:15 ET for our second October Weird Watch Party, Phantasm (1979). It’s on Tubi, so no subscription required, but a free Kast account is. As always, look for the link here, on Facebook, and on Twitter around 15 minutes before showtime.
Next week Gregory J. Smalley will be taking a mysterious hiatus to work on a non-366 related project. This could lead to some minor wonkiness on the site and few-to-no social media updates. But don’t worry, has you covered with a review of the made-on-a-dare microbudget horror Dementia: Part II (2018); then, chips in (and chips away at the reader-suggested review queue) with a look at the crazy star-studded detective movie collaboration between and U2’s Bono, The Million Dollar Hotel (2000). Onward and weirdward!
