PLANNING SEPTEMBER’S AMAZON PRIME (?) WEIRD WATCH PARTY

We’re ready to take suggestions and votes in the comments for our September Amazon Prime Weird Watch party, scheduled for Saturday, September 25 at 10:15 PM ET–with a slight twist.

Because of the success of last night’s special Tubi.tv/Kast screening, we’re thinking of throwing our watch parties open to that platform as well. Tubi has a reasonable selection of movies and the big advantage of not requiring a subscription to access its content.

So we propose going forward that we open the bi-monthly watch parties to any of the three platforms—Netflix, Prime or Tubi—and hell, we’ll even throw Hulu in there, in theory. When making your nomination, simply say “I think we should watch Weird Movie on Netflix” or “I propose Strange Movie on Tubi” or “How about Weird Movie 2: Electric Boogaloo on Prime?” We’ll try to come to a consensus and see how this experiment shakes out.

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.

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

Make your nominations and/or RSVP in the comments below.

  1. Changing mine to Embrión La Criatura Infernal (Doblado).
    A Spanish language film with Rock Hudson and Diane Ladd in 1976. I don’t know what it’s about, but the “cover” shows naked women all attached by an umbilical cord.

  2. Nominating Men and Chicken on Tubi.

    Though I’d also like to watch Entertainment again.

    Embryo and Virgin aren’t ones I’m familiar with. I was not a fan of Orphan.

  3. I put all my voting weight behind the option that’s no-more-than (or at least not-much-more-than) 100 minutes in length.

  4. I’ll nominate Lair of the White Worm (I don’t think we’ve done a Ken Russell yet), and Small Apartments, both on Prime.

  5. Edward, Lair of the White Worm and Small Apartments are both on Tubi, too. As are, I now notice, both Embryo and Entertainment. (Not long ago Prime had a huge library of exclusive licensed films, and now it seems to be shrinking dramatically.)

    The Tubi movies say they come with ads–I haven’t experienced any yet–so the only advantage of Prime is ad-free.

    I don’t think we have a clear consensus yet so let me lay out the options for further voting/discussion:

    Embryo (104 min) – Prime or Tubi
    Entertainment (103 min) – Prime or Tubi
    Lair of the White Worm (93 min) – Prime or Tubi
    Men and Chicken (104 min) – Tubi
    The Night of the Virgin (116 min) – Tubi
    Small Apartments (95 min) – Tubi

    I will cast my official votes for Entertainment, Men & Chicken, and Small Apartments (guess I’m in the mood for black comedy). I would prefer Prime unless someone wants to attend who doesn’t have it, in which case Tubi is perfectly fine.
