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.
IN THEATERS (LIMITED RELEASE):
Ayar (2021): Read our festival capsule. Although this experimental Covid-set drama about an immigrant single mom is an interesting offering, we’re a bit surprised to see it hit 100% on Rotten Tomatoes on seven reviews. There’s no predicting what will grab the normies’ interest and attention. Ayar at Apple TV.
NEW ON HOME VIDEO:
Climate of the Hunter (2019): Read Giles Edwards’ review. ‘s ambiguously vampiric romantic melodrama pops onto home video just ahead of Agnes‘ theatrical release. Also available free on Amazon Prime and ad-supported on Tubi.tv. Or, you can buy Climate of the Hunter.
The Show (2021): Searching for an unnamed artifact, a man visits a surreal town peopled by vampires, voodoo gangsters, and 40s detectives. The first feature film scripted by Alan “Watchmen” Moore is a weird one indeed. It shows up on DVD and Blu-ray after a long wait (we first mentioned it three years ago). Buy The Show.
CANONICALLY WEIRD (AND OTHER) REPERTORY SCREENINGS:
This section will no longer be updated regularly. Instead, we direct you to our new “Repertory Cinemas Near You” page. We will continue to mention exceptional events in this space from time to time, however.
WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE:
We’re still looking for RSVPs and suggestions for our next Weird Watch Party, tentatively scheduled for the evening of Dec. 4. Join the conversation here.
In next week’s reviews, Jake Fredel digs up a hidden gem in the 1968 Japanese horror-fantasy The Snake Girl and the Silver-Haired Witch. Then, Giles Edwards goes to the reader-suggested review queue for ‘s surreal and sorta-sexy feature animation I Married a Strange Person (1997). Gregory J. Smalley, meanwhile, will probably spend his time putting the finishing touches on the scaled-back 2021 edition of the 366 Weird Movies Yearbook, but he may throw in a bonus review if time permits. Onward and weirdward!
