We’re still experimenting with formats for our Weird Watch Parties. This month, we’ll be offering two Weird Watch Parties, one on Netflix on October 17 at 10:15 PM ET, and one on Amazon Prime on October 31 (Halloween!) at 10:15 PM EST. This will allow us to take a more leisurely approach to the nomination process and hopefully build up antici…. pation.
As always, we’ll be looking for a minimum of 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. We’re hoping that the extra lead time will allow us to announce our choice a week ahead of the screening time.
The Canonically Weird movies on Netflix that we haven’t yet screened yet 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), and Swiss Army Man (2016). 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), Murder Party (2007), I Lost My Body (2019), or I’m Thinking of Ending Things (2020).
To participate, you’ll need a U.S. Netflix account, a Chrome-based browser, and the Netflix Party extension.
