Our weekly look at what’s weird in theaters, on hot-off-the-presses DVDs and Blu-rays (and hot off the server VODs), and on more distant horizons…
Trailers of new release movies are generally available at the official site links.
It’s off-season for the movies. The industry tends to go into hibernation after the holidays, awakening to start a new season with the Sundance Festival. Things seem even bleaker than usual with so many theaters shuttered right now. But keep checking in, things will improve.
IN DEVELOPMENT (FILMING):
Incroyable mais vrais [Incredible but True] (est 2021): Little is known about Cineuropa has an article in English referencing the project.‘s 10th feature film except that it reunites him with lead , it is currently filming, and it is listed as a comedy despite a tagline stating it’s about a couple whose real estate agent warns them about something in the basement of the dream home they are buying. It’s impossible to imagine Dupieux making a non-weird film, so we’ll be on the lookout for this one.
NEW ON HOME VIDEO:
The One You Feed (2020): A nameless man finds himself being cared for in a nameless country by a nameless man and woman. Ambiguous and homoerotic. DVD, Blu-ray or VOD. Buy The One You Feed.
CANONICALLY WEIRD (AND OTHER) REPERTORY SCREENINGS:
There are no live weird movie screenings in the USA or Canada this week. The post-holidays period is always slow, however, so we look for this section to slowly recover through 2021 and be back to full strength a year from now.
FREE MOVIES ON TUBI.TV:
Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010): Read the Canonically Weird review! What the hell is going on at the Arboria Institute, and why are they playing all that Tangerine Dream-style music? Listed as “leaving soon.” Watch Beyond the Black Rainbow free on Tubi.tv.
WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE: New movie releases may have slowed down, but that doesn’t mean we here at 366 Weird Movies will! Next week Giles Edwards feels The Hunger (1983) for a / vampire snack. And there is no need to be coy about the fact that The Wolf House, our Weirdest Movie of 2020, will be joining the Apocrypha; next week, we’ll make it official with a write-up.
And Happy 2021 to you! May this year clear the very low hurdle that is being an improvement over 2020. Onward and weirdward!
