JANUARY AMAZON PRIME WATCH PARTY NOMINATIONS THREAD

Our next Weird Watch Party on Amazon Prime is scheduled for Jan. 23 at 10:15 PM.

As always, we’ll be looking for nominations from people who plan to attend. After we get the minimum five nominations and likely attendees, we’ll put up a poll. Management will break any ties. We’re open to suggestions for different starting times, dates, or methods of propagating the watch link.

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

We’ll take nominations through the week and put up a poll a week from today. Make your nominations in the comments below.

  1. I’d nominate “Aguirre, The Wrath of God”, but they only have the English dub. Instead, …. “Come to Daddy”.

  2. What about Bad Ben. A guy wanted to make a horror film and filmed it in his own house pretty much all alone. (This is not the plot. It’s how the movie came about). This is the first in a series. It’s extremely low budget and cheesy, but I think it’s fun to watch. It’s not at all well done but I guess that’s what makes it weird to me. It might be too low brow for you guys, though!

    1. I’ve actually gotten half-way through that movie–and I imagine the 366 viewership could have fun with it. (It’s short, too!)
