WEIRD HORIZON FOR THE WEEK OF 5/6/2022

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):

Lux Aeterna: and are two actresses in a witch trial movie, and everything goes wrong in a psychedelic way typical of director . Epileptics beware the trippy stroboscopic effects! Only 50 minutes long, and in very limited U.S. distribution. Lux Aeterna official site (in French).

BOOKS:

“Liarmouth: A Feel-Bad Romance”: writes his first novel at 76, and it’s a callback to his early days, like a Trash Trilogy sequel in prose. It’s the story of suitcase thief Marsha Sprinkle, and apparently there are talking genitals in it, among other demented scenes. Reviews have been generally positive, though coming with a warning that it’s not for those with weak stomachs.  Buy “Liarmouth: A Feel-Bad Romance.”

CANONICALLY WEIRD (AND OTHER) REPERTORY SCREENINGS:

This section will no longer be updated regularly. Instead, we direct you to our new “Repertory Cinemas Near You” page. We will continue to mention exceptional events in this space from time to time, however. Like this one:
