We’re going to experiment this month and do things a little differently with our Weird Watch Parties this month. We’re going to schedule two Netflix watch parties in a row. Assuming there’s enough interest, our next Netflix parties will be scheduled for Saturday, September 5 and September 12 at 10:15 PM.

.As always, we’ll be looking for five movie screening nominations from people who plan to attend (for both or either session). After we get the minimum five nominations and likely attendees, we’ll put up a poll. We’ll then schedule the poll’s second place vote-getter to be screened on September 5th and the first place contestant on September 12. Management will break any ties.

The Canonically Weird movies on Netflix that we haven’t yet screened are Being John Malkovich (1999), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Kung Fu Hustle (2004), The Lobster (2015), Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997), Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), A Serious Man (2009), Sin City (2005), Swiss Army Man (2016), and The Wicker Man (1973). Feel free to nominate any of these, or ignore them in favor of other selections. You can nominate something you nominated before, but not something we watched in a previous party: so no The Platform, April and the Extraordinary World, The Bad Batch, Skins [Pieles], Under the Skin, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Enemy, A Ghost Story, Escape from the ‘Liberty’ Cinema, Between Worlds, Buster’s Mal Heart, The Aerial [La Antena], The Endless, The Wicker Man (1973), or Murder Party (2007).

To participate, you’ll need a U.S. Netflix account, a Chrome-based browser, and the Netflix Party extension.

  1. Ok, i’m going to nominate Safety Not Guaranteed. Don’t know if i’d call it the weirdest movie, but it does deal with time travel, and has 2 wonderful lead performances.
