WEIRD HORIZON FOR THE WEEK OF 2/14/2020

366 Weird Movies may earn commissions from purchases made through product links.

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):

Impossible Monsters (2019): A sleep-study participant is murdered; is it a literal nightmare? Another “blurring the line between dreams and reality” psychothriller. Impossible Monsters official site.

FILM FESTIVALS – South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) (Austin, TX, Mar. 13-22):

If you can’t get your indie film into Sundance, the massive SXSW festival in Austin, Texas is your next best bet. With the continued mainstreaming of Sundance, and the increasingly homogenized “indie” product spotlighted there, if your movie’s a bit on the weirder side, SWSX may even be a better fit. Among this year’s offerings are the surreal St. Vincent mockumentary The Nowhere Inn, a holdover from Sundance. Here are some newbies we’ll look out for down the road:

  • Nine Days – A man pits spirits in a competition; the winner will be born into our world. This debuted at Sundance, but the brief synopsis gave little hint it might be weird; subsequent reviews have raised our expectations a tad.
  • PG (Psycho Goreman) – Kids use a magical amulet to control an alien bent on destroying the world. Competing in the “Midnighters” category.
  • The Show – Highly anticipated (by us) story of a parallel fantasy world existing alongside the mundane British town of Northampton, scripted by Alan (Watchmen) Moore.
  • Witch Hunt – A teenager helps smuggle two witches into Mexico in an alternate reality where witchcraft is real (and banned in the USA).
