Since Pod 366 replaced our deprecated Weird Horizon column, it’s been a while since we’ve posted one of these. But with no Pod this Thanksgiving week, it’s back! Although there’s not much to report on in an off week for weird movies…


The Boy and the Heron (2023): ‘s surprise final film involves a boy traveling to a world between the living and the dead, meeting strange animals with character designs said to rival Spirited Away. Opens in NYC and LA this week, at select IMAX theaters Dec. 4, and reaches its widest US release two weeks from today. In the meantime, we have a trailer!  The Boy and the Heron US distributor site.


Returning guest will appear on next week’s Pod 366 to discuss his upcoming feature, The Dark Sisters. In December, we’ll have someone from video collective on, and possibly some guest(s) to be named later.

In next week’s written reviews, Rafael Moreira brings our attention to António de Macedo’s rare The Twelve Hours of Maria (1977), a film about a blind girl raped by her stepfather which was condemned by the Catholic Church for blasphemy; Shane Wilson takes on another one that Came from the Reader-Suggested Queue with 1986’s absurd post-apocalyptic Roller Blade; and Giles Edwards gives the ‘s gonzo Identikit (1974) the full-length treatment ( previously reviewed it as part of the “House of Psychotic Women” box set). Meanwhile, Gregory J. Smalley works quietly behind the scenes on a not-ready-to-officially-announce if not-completely-secret project. Onward and weirdward!
