WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE: #366 EVE

Only one more movies to Certify Weird! Many of you have already guessed the title, but feel free to try again in the comments.

Next week, we’ll be taking time out from reviews (with the exception of our 366th choice) for some reflections, starting with thoughts from  our gadfly Alfred Eaker. We’ll also bring you an updated list of the top weird movies not yet released on home video, and G. Smalley will add some thoughts on the 366 milestone, looking back fondly on what we’ve accomplished—and looking ahead to where this site will be going in a post-366 world.

Some things will be changing here in the coming weeks. We’ll let you in on the first change right now: we’re no longer going to list the upcoming reader-suggested review queue every week. (You can always see the complete list, alphabetized, on our Suggest a Weird Movie page). We will allow you to continue making suggestions for new movies, however.

Another change is that we will no longer be tracking the Weirdest Search Terms of the Week, since we’re seeing diminishing returns and a lot of repeats. If you’re disappointed by that, rest assured that at least we’ve been holding some very weird searches back—and we’re now going to dump them on you all at once, as a farewell to the series. These searches all came about because we link Pussy Goes Grrr in our sidebar. “Pussy” is, for some reason, a popular internet search term. Combine that with our high Google rank for the search term “weird” and you get a lot of strange, and often disturbing, searches combing “weird” and “pussy.” We’ve been saving some of these searches for almost a decade now. You can now finally enjoy them. Be warned, however: some of the items below contain pussy-related concepts you never thought of, and quite likely, never wanted to think of. Broad-minded, mature adults only, please. Try to keep the snickering to a minimum and do not attempt image searches on any of the following. This list may be illegal to access in Saudi Arabia, Iran, or Utah; check you local laws. Peruse at your own risk; 366 Weird Movies will not be responsible for any arousal, distress or insanity caused by reading the following list.

WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE

Only 2 more movies to Certify Weird! You may attempt to guess the remaining title(s) in the comments if you wish.

As we count down to #366, Alfred Eaker will take time out to review American Genre Film Archives’ Blu-ray release of ‘s sad (and long unavailable) final film, the softcore porn comedy Take It out in Trade (1970). Giles Edwards will toss in a review from the long-neglected reader-suggested review queue with George Clooney’s -scripted Chuck Barris biopic, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002). And, since it’s that time of year, G. Smalley will bring you his top 10 of 2018 lists (divided into weird and mainstream varieties) before bringing you a long-anticipated look at… Caligari.

It’s once again time for our weekly look at the weirdest search terms that brought readers to the site this week, a feature we call “Weirdest Search Terms of the Week.” We have seen a lot of searches this week; most of them, however, are completely rational (except for the fact that the obscure No Smoking is almost always the top searched-for movie). We do have a guy looking for “wirdiest movie,” though (does he want to find the weirdest movie, or the wordiest movie?) Here are some candidates for the former: “1950s movie where girl’s shadow is alive runs home from school,” “eel kills astronaut movie,” and of course “comedy movie tourist guy keeps getting impaled” (sounds hilarious!) There’s also a guy looking for “sss fol movi” (beats us). For our official Weirdest Search Term of the Week, we’ll go with the simple “sexyvoids.” Think we’ve gone out on regrettable dates with a few of those.

And finally, it’s time for our (final?) weekly cut n’ paste disclaimer regarding the reader-suggested review queue below: since we will definitely not be getting to all of these (although we will pick out the occasional title), you can consider this a list of “honorable mentions” for your own perusal and amusement. That out of the way, here’s how the ridiculously-long reader-suggested review queue now stands: Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (next week!); The Last Movie; Genius Party; The Idiots; “Premium” (depending on availability); Spermula; Killer Condom; Sir Henry at Rawlinson End; Moebius (1996); Adventures of Picasso; Charly: Dias de Sangre (depending on availability); Continue reading WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE

We’re just recovering from Saturnalia festivities, so we’ll be taking it slow next week. But we won’t rest until Alfred Eaker introduces you to one of the strangest virtually-unknown holiday treats, Japan’s bizzaro -styled take on the Nutcracker Fantasy. We’ll be taking Christmas Day off, but still provide you with a stocking stuffer; then Giles Edwards will be bringing you one of the last of our 2018 movies, France’s gender-bending The Wild Boys. Finally this week, G. Smalley returns with an odd one you may have heard of: Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997). On to #366, and on to 2019!

And on to our weekly survey of the weirdest search terms that brought visitors to the site this week. First up are a pair we’re betting are from the same searcher: “odd beastiality” and “werid beastiality.” (We see these all the time and they always make us wonder: what do these searchers consider to be ordinary, mainstream bestiality?) Next up is a film we’d like to see: “movie where they hang upside down and a monkey jumps on his face.” But for our official Weirdest Search Term of the Week, we’ll go with “creatures living in a lunch pale movie form the 80s,” which wood have been weird enough even without the pear of homophones.

And finally, it’s time for our weekly cut n’ paste disclaimer regarding the reader-suggested review queue below: since we will definitely not be getting to all of these (although we will pick out the occasional title), you can consider this a list of “honorable mentions” for your own perusal and amusement. That out of the way, here’s how the ridiculously-long reader-suggested review queue now stands:  Les garcons sauavges [The Wild Boys] (next week!); The End of Evangelion (next week!); The Last Movie; Genius Party; The Idiots; “Premium” (depending on availability); Spermula; Killer Condom; Sir Henry Continue reading WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE

Only 4 more movies to Certify Weird! You may attempt to guess the remaining titles in the comments if you wish.

Don’t forget to enter our latest giveaway contest (a Blu-ray of Snowflake and a bonus DVD of the Norwegian Xmas slasher Christmas Blood) by mentioning us on social media! There is a quick turnaround on this contest, closing on 12/18. Details here.

We’ll start off next week in a holiday mood as Alfred Eaker waxes nostalgic about “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” (the real one, not the one in theaters). Next up Giles Edwards catches us up on the hallucinogen-fueled Argentinian horror Luciferina (2018). Then, it’s G. Smalley giving you the scoop on the “surreal drama” Mountain Rest 1, then revisiting Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life (1983) so he can spend one more Christmas in heaven.

Not-so-heavenly is our weekly survey of weird search terms that brought users to the site this week. Among the best we saw was “bestiality twin,” which should give you a hint how normal the searches were this week. We are even forced to highlight “foriegnmoviegettingtidofaliens” as one of the strangest searches we saw; it’s never a good sign when you’re relying on broken space bars to create your weird searches. In a very ordinary week, we’ll go with “365 movies in dubbed movies” as the weirdest search term we saw. The searcher was probably looking for dubbed Indian movies, but the phraseology implies they’re searching for 365 different movies somehow embedded inside dubbed movies, which is a head-spinning concept indeed.

And finally, it’s time for our weekly cut n’ paste disclaimer regarding the reader-suggested review queue below: since we will definitely not be getting to all of these (although we will pick out the occasional title), you can consider this a list of “honorable mentions” for your own perusal and amusement. That out of the way, here’s how the ridiculously-long reader-suggested review queue now stands: The Last Movie (next week!); Genius Party; The Idiots; “Premium” (depending on availability); Spermula; Killer Condom; Sir Henry Continue reading WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE

Only 5 more movies to Certify Weird! You may attempt to guess the remaining titles in the comments if you wish.

A chill is in the air, egg nog is in the glass, and weird movie reviewers are typing through the sneezes as they bang out columns under the influence of NyQuil. It’s that time of year again! Next week, Alfred Eaker begins his countdown to Christmas with Rankin/Bass‘ “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” Then, we continue cleaning out last year’s releases to make room for 2019, as Shane Wilson tackles the hallucinatory social media satire Like Me and G. Smalley takes a deeper look at Masaaki Yuasa‘s whimsically weird anime Night Is Short, Walk on Girl. Finally, it wouldn’t feel like the holidays without a little pious blasphemy and nunsploitation, and so it’s time—finally—for  Ken Russell‘s The Devils.

And now it’s time for our weekly survey of the weirdest search terms that brought users to the site. We always see a lot of bland movie searches that aren’t worth commenting on, but “that weird movie with the weird creatures ” is so generic that it becomes a little bit weird. Then there’s “old animated movie of conceited man becoming a swan trapped in a spinning,” which would be slightly odd even if it didn’t cut off suddenly. But there’s no question what the official Weirdest Search Term of the Week is: “60 old hairy p*ssies idea dead body on the rubber to men.” There’s so much strangeness packed into those 45 characters, but we’ll only comment on the fact that when you’re searching for geriatric necrophilia, there’s probably no need to be coy about using dirty words—just spell ’em out next time.

And finally, it’s time for our weekly cut n’ paste disclaimer regarding the reader-suggested review queue below: since we will definitely not be getting to all of these (although we will pick out the occasional title), you can consider this a list of “honorable mentions” for your own perusal and amusement. That out of the way, here’s how the ridiculously-long reader-suggested review queue now stands: Genius Party; The Idiots; “Premium” (depending on availability); Spermula; Killer Condom; Sir Henry at Rawlinson End; Moebius (1996); Adventures of Picasso; Charly: Dias de Sangre (depending on availability); Continue reading WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE

Next week, Alfred Eaker will be taking care of some academic business, which means a reprint column from him. As far as new material goes, though, we’ll bring you new release coverage as 2018 winds down: G. Smalley looks at the romantic comedy Relationtrip and the cannibal documentary Caniba, while Alex Kittle gives you the scoop on the Criterion Collection edition of ‘s True Stories.

We’re back to the point where we’re seeing plenty of search engine results in our logs; and yet, they are not as strange as we would like, making our survey of Weirdest Search Terms of the Week a confounding exercise. Maybe our standards are just too high? For example, something like “name of the film about an asian girl killed by a cow from the sky” would be a weird search to show up on a different site, but for us, it seems like a completely reasonable question. And “world of tomorrow the burden of other popes thoughts watch online” would be completely unexceptional, save for a single weirding typo. Out of a pretty ordinary batch, we’ll take “girl puts red nail polish on pad to conceal pregnancy goes into labor in bathroom and taken to hospital” as our official Weirdest Search Term of the Week. Hint to girls trying to conceal a pregnancy: don’t follow the advice in this movie. Put nail polish on a pad and you’ll only end up in the hospital.

Next week Alfred Eaker plans to look at Dennis Potter’s 1969 teleplay Son of Man, a controversial (at the time) retelling of the Passion. Then, Giles Edwards goes Japanese with Vampire Clay, the eerie story of, well, vampiric clay. G. Smalley brings you Apocalypsis, the psychedelic Christian conspiracy theory thriller you did not see coming, as well as a second look at the 1985 Soviet antiwar nightmare Come and See. Come and see us all next week! The countdown is in full swing.

Now’s the time when we bring you our survey of the weirdest search terms that brought visitors to the site this week, a feature we like to call “Weirdest Search Terms of the Week.” We’ll start off with the return of an old favorite: the ultra-mysterious “friends boring strangers,” which has been showing up on the list for years now (though it hadn’t been spotted for months). Next up, we’ll mention “movie with guy who cant take his glasses off because of eye lasers.” But for our official Weirdest Search Term of the Week, we’ll go with “woman pretends to be pregnant and eats men through vagina movie.” Not sure why she would have to pretend to be pregnant—unless it’s to hide the evidence?

And finally, it’s time for our weekly cut n’ paste disclaimer regarding the reader-suggested review queue below: since we will definitely not be getting to all of these (although we will pick out the occasional title), you can consider this a list of “honorable mentions” for your own perusal and amusement.
