WEIRD HORIZON FOR THE WEEK OF 1/2/08

A new feature looking at potentially weird films that are currently in theaters, coming to DVD soon or in production.  Visit the official sites to see trailers.

IN THEATERS (LIMITED RELEASE):

Let the Right One In:  There’s a fantastic buzz about this Swedish movie about a 12 year old boy who falls in love with a neighbor girl who is a vampire.  It looks like an inferior Hollywood remake is already in the works!  Let the Right One In Official Site

Timecrimes [Los Cronocrimenes]:  Well reviewed Spanish time-travel Twilight Zone thriller.  Looks promising.  Los Cronocrimenes Official Site (Spanish)

Waltz with Bashir: Animated Israeli politically tinged film, described as visually inventive and surreal.  Waltz with Bashir Official Site

Repo: The Genetic Opera:  Gory sci-fi musical comedy about a future where organs are bought on the open market, and occasionally have to be repossessed.  Adapted from am underground LA stage play.  Very poorly reviewed.  Repo: The Genetic Opera Official Site
