WEIRD HORIZON FOR THE WEEK OF 11/8/2013

Our weekly look at what’s weird in theaters, on hot-off-the-presses DVDs, and on more distant horizons…

Trailers of new release movies are generally available on the official site links.

IN THEATERS (LIMITED RELEASE):

It’s Me, It’s Me: After an identity theft scam goes wrong, Hitoshi finds that everyone in the world is slowly being replaced by his clones; then, the various “mes” begin “deleting” each other. We’re not sure exactly where this is playing (assume New York City and/or Los Angeles). It’s Me, It’s Me official site.

NEW ON DVD:

Amnesiac (2013): A grieving mother contacts a spirit via a Ouija board who promises to help her contact her dead son. Descriptions suggest an interesting mindbender that winds up being a little talky due to its low budget. Buy Amnesiac.

NEW ON BLU-RAY:

Oldboy (2013): Read our review. No special features are advertised for this 10th Anniversary re-release. The distributor already released an extras-laden Blu in 2007. Buy Oldboy [Blu-ray].

FREE (LEGITIMATE RELEASE) MOVIES ON YOUTUBE:

City Ninja (1985): Read our capsule review. Crazy (and sexy) chopsocky about martial artists and criminal gangs looking for two necklaces, each with half of a Swiss bank account printed on it. Watch City Ninja free on YouTube.

What are you looking forward to? If you have any weird movie leads that I have overlooked, feel free to leave them in the COMMENTS section.
