WEIRD HORIZON FOR THE WEEK OF 3/18/2016

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

It was a strangely barren week, with nothing of serious surreal interest coming out in theaters or on DVD/Blu-ray. Hopefully this is just the calm before the big weird storm… but here’s what we did find going on this week.

SCREENINGS – (Cinefamily, Los Angeles, Fri. Mar. 18-20):

Repo Man (1984): Read the Certified Weird entry‘s unclassifiable punk/sci-fi/comedy about L.A. car repossessors is one of the lynchpins of Cinefamily’s “Underground USA: Independent Cinema of the 80s” series. Cox himself will be in attendance at tonight’s 10:30 PM showing. Also playing in this series: 1980’s ultraweird 6th dimension fantasy Forbidden Zone (with director  on hand) on Saturday at 10PM. Then, for Sunday afternoon’s “hangover matinee” they’ll be showing no less weird a film than Mulholland Drive! Once again, we wish we lived in Los Angeles… though we wouldn’t get much done on the weekends. “Underground USA: Independent Cinema of the 80s” series at Cinefamily.

  1. As the person who made the TV Tropes page, I don’t use the site very much, so I’m not very familiar with the ins and outs of how their editing system works. The page was originally titled 366 Weird Movies, but when I went to save the page and make it live, the system took me to a blank editing page and told me there couldn’t be any numerical characters in the URL. Fortunately I’d backed up my work elsewhere so two and a half hours of editing weren’t lost, but I panicked a little and just changed it to the phonetic spelling to be done with it.

    Makes things a touch weirder, at the very least.

    1. Very much welcome! Hope it generates some traffic for you guys. I complain at times, but I honestly do enjoy visiting this site and reading your reviews.
