THE CONTEST IS OVER! You may still comment on the topic if you like, however.

We have a surplus of promotional DVDs and Blu-rays we need to move, so it’s time for another giveaway! This time, the contest centers around the “movie of the day” concept that underlies the site’s mission statement, but which we rarely refer to.

To enter, we ask you to, in the comments, pick the day that’s most appropriate to view a particular Certified Weird movie. An obvious example would be viewing Santa Claus (or Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny) on December 25, Christmas Day. But what movie would you pick for Arbor Day? January 20? June 19? What’s the perfect day of the year to watch, for example, 2001: A Space Odyssey? (You might check Wikipedia for some ideas of celebrations and events associated with particular days of the year, or this site for some more whimsical choices.)

To enter, add your idea in the comments to this post. We are going to select the winner randomly using, so you don’t have to provide the best suggestion to enter. (One entry per person, please, though you can mention as many films as you like). In fact, although we want to hear your thoughts, you don’t even have to have a suggestion to enter: you can simply mention in the comments that you love the site and you’d like to enter the contest. (You can even say you hate the site and still enter the contest; you will make us sad, but it won’t affect your chances of winning.)

The usual eligibility rules apply: to receive the DVD/Blu-ray, you must supply us with a mailing address in the United States. (Don’t publish your address in your comment! We’ll contact the winner through email). You also must be over the age of 18, given the extra-sexy nature of this prize pack. 366 contributors are not eligible for the prize. If you don’t meet those qualifications you can still comment for fun, but let us know you’re not in it for the swag. We’ll stop accepting entries Wednesday, July 4, at midnight EST, after the fireworks are over. If the winner does not respond to our request for a mailing address within 24 hours we’ll email a runner-up, and so forth, until the prize is given away.

Fags in the Fast Lane DVD cover

And now, for our prizes. First up is the campy, crazy Australian homo-comedy Fags in the Fast Lane. This special DVD presentation comes with a sticker and a large reversible poster plus the usual DVD extras like a commentary track, music video, cartoon and trailers.  Our review states that “we fully expect to see it on our 10 Weirdest Movies of 2018 list… It goes without saying that neither homophobes nor the easily grossed-out will want to encounter Fags, but if you’re made of sterner stuff, you should find it fast-paced fluff that satisfies your guilty desire for absurd sleaze served with a twist of retro pop-culture surrealism.” Check out their home page for more info.

Frank & Eva Blu-ray coverAnd just to please everyone, our second sexy feature is a softcore drama aimed at the heterosexual crowd: Cult Epics‘ new release of Frank & Eva, the debut film for Sylvia “Emmanuelle” Kristel. The DVD/Blu-ray combo includes a commentary track from director , the mini-doc “Up Front & Naked: Sex in Dutch Films,” and photo galleries. From the back cover: “Frank (Blue Movie’s Hugo Metsers) and Eva (The Lift’s Willeke van Ammelrooy) cannot live with or without each other. In the liberal 1970s, Frank sleeps with every woman he can get. Eva, meanwhile, is looking for more security and wants to start a family. Frank’s behavior frustrates her so much that she starts an affair with their mutual friend. This social drama offers a view on relationships not much different than today. For Sylvia Kristel (her debut prior to Emmanuelle), a special role was written after she said to Pim de la Parra, ‘Why won’t you discover me? I’m the best.'” Check out the Cult Epics Frank & Eva page for more info.

All right, get to it!


  1. According to this dumb desk calendar I have, today is National Orange Blossom Day. So 6/27 would be a good day to watch A Clockwork Orange

  2. The Tree of Life on New Years Eve. I can’t for the life of me think of a better film that examines both life and death in such a profound way, all while maintaining a human core while at once also spreading itself to the cosmic. In short, it’s the best movie to close out one year on, while ringing in another.

    (I was also considering posting about Donnie Darko on Mischief Night, if only because the movie is set on/around Halloween, but has a bit of a more angst-filled tone than the sort of thing I’d consider truly “Halloween-y”.)

  3. December 9th falls on John Malkovich’s birthday, so what better day to watch his undoubtedly boldest (and weirdest) move of not only agreeing to star in a film about a people entering a portal into his head for fifteen minutes, but also allowing the film to brand his name and become forever associated with it.

  4. Kubrick (esp The Shining) and Lynch (esp Eraserhead) movies are best watched during wintertime, when everything feels slow, dead, depressing and dark.

  5. Since Dogville is a misanthropic retelling of Christian ideals- especially in how it subverts Christian sacrifice narratives, Easter would be the perfect time to watch it with the entire family!

  6. Frank & Eva not only for the heterosexual according to MR. MAN so enjoy! “The hunky Hugo Metsers, shows off pretty much everything in this movie. We get quite familiar with his frankfurter and beans in several scenes that show Frank totally nude. We even enjoy watching him bulge out in tight undies like the scene where a woman strokes him from under his undies. It’s fun to watch him harden in his underwear!”
    Great Nudity! A 4 star review at Mr. Man here:

  7. The best time to watch The red squirrel is. is… Oh man, I just forgot it. Please tell me what I was about to say.

  8. January is the coldest month to watch After Last Season. You can endure the torment and the sickness the actors and actresses went through when they executed their nonsensical lines and actions in sub zero temperatures. Just do what Mr Region would: drag your laptop out to the snow with whatever extension cord you have lying around, pop in the DVD (or download it beforehand) and let your IQ corrode from hypothermia and confusion when exposed to 30 minutes of flying oblongs.

  9. Lynch film marathon on August 25th. Since the winner is random, I won’t bother explaining. Instead, I’ll leave it as a challenge for someone to figure it out!

  10. I’m not trying to enter the contest, but personally “Brazil” has long been one of my favourite Christmas movies. Best enjoyed with a bottle of Barley Water.

  11. Let’s go with Doggiewoggiez Poichiewo hiez! and the perfect date of April 32nd. Woof!

  12. I watch the Sandlot on every 4th of july. The whole movie reminds me of summers i had as a kid and the 4th of july baseball segment has me thinking about the holiday every time.

  13. “The Love Witch” on Sweetest Day – which is like Valentine’s Day, only more of a shamelessly commercial social construct.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  14. Looking it up, October 10th is Ed Wood’s birthday, so that seems like a perfect day to watch Glen or Glenda, Plan 9, and finish it up with The Violent Years (not a 366 movie, but one of my favorite MST3K episodes, if nothing else).

  15. There are a number of thematically suitable weird films for Valentine’s Day, but I would choose the four-hour epic Love Exposure for this special day. With religion, estranged fathers, martial arts, cults, the adult film industry, upskirt photography, parrots, ritual suicide, it truly has something for everyone.

  16. I think the forthcoming horror film THE NUN will be exceptional viewing for Christmas Day. And if France win the World Cup I’m revisiting THE ARTIST on Sunday!

  17. Thanks for any other wonderful post. The place else may anyone get
    that kind of information in such an ideal manner of writing?
    I have a presentation next week, and I’m at the search for such information. viagra tablets
