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.


Koko-di, Koko-da (2019): Read Giles Edwards’ Apocrypha Candidate review and our interview with director Johannes Nyholm.  Delayed for about a year from it’s originally scheduled screen debut, this eldritch nightmare about three psychopathic fairy tale figures who kill a grieving couple over and over is (virtually) here. Regular VOD release coming on Dec. 8. List of participating virtual venues for Koko-di, Koko-da.


Barbie & Kendra Storm Area 51 (2020): The bimbo heroines of Corona Zombies (and its equally rushed sequel Barbie & Kendra Save The Tiger King) return to investigate an alien conspiracy. It’s their third movie in eight months, a pace made possible by the fact that each flick consists mostly of humorously re-dubbed dialogue from older Full Moon features–this time, The Day Time Ended (1979) features heavily. On VOD, and also streaming on Full Moon’s subscription service and Amazon Prime channel. Rent Barbie & Kendra Storm Area 51.

I Was at Home, But… (2019): A boy mysteriously disappears, then reappears. A challenging, minimalist German art movie, now out on Blu-ray or DVD. Buy I Was at Home, But….

Lake Michigan Monster (2019): Read Giles Edwards’ Apocrypha Candidate review. Made for (relative) pennies, this audience-pleasing microbudget B-movie spoof is an absurd and eye-popping comedy experience. Arrow releases it on Blu-ray only. Buy Lake Michigan Monster.

Possessor (2020): Read our review. ‘s icy sci-fi psychothriller about the future of assassination hits small screens on-demand this week; physical media still to come. Buy or rent Possessor.

The Secret of Kells (2009): Read our review. Stunning animation (the look is inspired by medieval manuscripts) full of eerie Celtic folklore. A Blu-ray re-release. Buy The Secret of Kells.


American’s aren’t back to full capacity yet, but some repertory theaters are open with screenings in theaters, drive-ins, and online.


Bronson (2008): Read the Canonically Weird entry! ‘s breakthrough performance as the obstinately brawling prisoner Bronson in ‘s surreal boipic is now listed as “leaving soon” on Tubi. Watch Bronson free on

WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE: We’ll continue taking nominations for our upcoming Weird Netflix Watch Party scheduled for Saturday, September 13 until early Sunday. Feel free to nominate a movie to watch here.

Next week’s review slate is a little bit in flux as we continue working behind-the-scenes on the 2020 Yearbook, still on schedule to roll out on the first day of December. We do promise Giles Edwards will review Russia’s weird new entry in the torture-porn genre, Sleepless Beauty (due on VOD next week and Blu-ray the week after). is working on numerous items, but expects to give you a rundown of the newest special edition release of Death Laid an Egg [La morte ha fatto l’uovo] (1968), if nothing else (and there probably will be something else). Stay tuned, and upward and weirdward!
