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):
Undergods (2020): Read Giles Edwards festival review and listen to our interview with director Chino Moya. A dystopian anthology linked by the adventures of a pair of corpse-haulers on a devastated future city. It’s listed as releasing theatrically on May 7, but we couldn’t find any theaters showing it; you can check it out on video-on-demand, though. No official site located.
IN DEVELOPMENT (psot-production):
Hundreds of Beavers (2021?): A silent (or at least, dialogue-free) comedy about fur trappers in the Northwoods, featuring (hundreds of? unlikely) beavers played by actors in furry costumes. The sophomore feature from the team responsible for Lake Michigan Monster. Thanks to reader Nc for the heads-up (and you can read the results of his research on in-production titles in the comments to last week’s Weird Horizon). “Daily Globe” story on Hundreds of Beavers.
NEW ON HOME VIDEO:
CANONICALLY WEIRD (AND OTHER) REPERTORY SCREENINGS:
Screenings are still scant, but there are a few to be found.
- Dallas, TX
- Mahoning, PA
- Tustin, CA
- Wayne, MI (Detroit)
FREE WEIRD MOVIES ON TUBI.TV:
Mr. Nobody (2009): Read the canonically weird entry! Bob Odenkirk as an action hero?? That’s one of the few branching realities not covered in Jaco Van Dormael‘s epic about the many lives of the last mortal man on earth. As with all titles we feature from Tubi, it’s in the “leaving soon” category. Watch Mr. Nobody free on Tubi.tv.
WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE: Thanks to a last-minute vote that broke a three-way tie, tomorrow’s weird Netflix screening will be the British Christmas horror Await Further Instructions (2018). As always, the link to join will appear here, on Facebook, or on Twitter around 10 PM ET. Join us!
Next week will be a light one in terms of reviews, with only 1989’s “homemade horror” Beyond Dream’s Door ready to publish. There’s a reason for that: we’re hard at work behind the scenes finishing up the manuscript for the print book version of the List of 366! Now, just because we have a manuscript doesn’t mean that publication is right around the bend—but it does mean that it’s quickly becoming inevitable. Onward and weirdward!
What are you looking forward to? If you have any weird movie leads that we have overlooked, feel free to leave them in the COMMENTS section.
