We’re ready to take suggestions and votes in the comments for our August Netflix Weird Watch party, scheduled for Saturday, August 7 at 10:15 PM ET.

If you’d like to attend our watch party, then the important thing is to RSVP in the comments, where you can make a screening suggestion, or just say you plan to be there. As always, we’re looking for five likely attendees before officially scheduling.

The Canonically Weird movies on Netflix that we haven’t yet screened yet are Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997), Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010). (Netflix is losing catalog titles at an alarming rate, replacing them with “exclusive” content). Feel free to nominate any of these, or ignore them in favor of other selections.

To participate, you’ll need a U.S. Netflix account, a Chrome-based browser, and the TeleParty (formerly “Netflix Party”) extension.

Okay, now join us in discussion in the comments.


    1. I nominate “Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus”. It still tickles me that a guy made famous by the ultra-violent “Johnny the Homicidal Maniac” was put in charge of a children’s cartoon all those decades ago.

  1. I like learning about history and would watch America: The Motion Picture.

    I’m nominating On Body and Soul again.

  2. I’ll be recommending Homunculus again. Enter the Florpus is great, but I have to admit I was a little disappointed with America, but it had its moments.

  3. We have our five RSVPs, and I’m going to change my vote to Homunculus and Scott Pilgrim. So as I count things it stands

    Homunculus 3
    Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus 2
    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 2
    America: The Motion Picture 1
    On Body and Soul 1
    Creep 1
    Forest of Love 1

    and anyone can add or change their votes up until, let’s say, Saturday.
