Last week, Amazon Prime; this week, we’re back to Netflix for our Weird Watch Party. We plan to alternate between the two services for the time being. Assuming there’s enough interest, our next Netflix party will be scheduled for Saturday, August 8 at 10:15 PM.

As always, we’ll be looking for five movie screening nominations from people who plan to attend. After we get the minimum five nominations and likely attendees, we’ll put up a poll.

In August, Netflix is adding a couple of new Canonically Weird movies to their catalog: Being John Malkovich (1999) and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004). The other canonical movies (that we haven’t yet screened) currently in their library are 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], or The Endless.

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

Make your nominations in the comments below.


    1. I’d love to do a “Borgman” party, but I’m afraid I can’t find it listed on Netflix. I will count you as an RSVP, James, but feel free to nominate a different movie (unless you can find a hidden “Borgman” link).

      I’ll nominate one that won’t count for RSVPs: the touching severed-hand cartoon “I Lost My Body.”

  1. I’m going to throw Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion out there, because I *still* haven’t seen it.
