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

Trailers of new release movies are generally available on the official site links.


The ABCs of Death 2 (2014): Read our review of the first installment. Although we really liked (the weird) portions of the original, we’re a little bit surprised that it was financially successful enough to justify a sequel. Once again, the alphabet of directors has us salivating beforehand. The biggest name in our book is Certified Weird directors and , but we’re also excited about , Vanishing Waves‘ (see below) Kristina Buozyte, , and stop-motion animator . Read more at Movieweb.


Alien Paranormal: Bigfoot, UFOs and the Men in Black (2013): This purported documentary asks the question, “are Bigfoot creatures traveling to earth in UFOs, covered up by mysterious Men In Black?” It takes less than an hour to answer the question, but for some reason Amazon suggests it may take up to two months to ship the DVD (possibly they are delivered periodically in batches brought by Bigfoot creatures traveling to Earth from a distant star system?) Buy Alien Paranormal: Bigfoot UFOs & The Men in Black.

“Mystery Science Theater 3000, Vol. XXVII”: No weird movies were harmed in the latest set from the movie-mocking cult TV show, but since you’re cool, we still thought you’d like to know there’s a new volume out. This volume deconstructs the monster mashes The Slime People and The Giant Mantis, the Cold War thriller Rocket Attack USA, and the closest thing to a weird movie in the collection, Bert I. Gordon’s giant teenager extravaganza Village of the Giants. Buy “Mystery Science Theater 3000, Vol. XXVII”.

“Superjail: Season Three”: The third season of the Cartoon Network’s on-again, off-again series (three seasons in five years) set in a futuristic jail. Each ten-minute episodes is absurd, psychedelic, violent, and usually extremely offensive—consider yourself warned! Buy “Superjail: Season Three”.

Trance (2013): Read our review. Psychological thriller with a nice cast (James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson, ) and hypnosis-based hallucination scenes. Buy Trance.

Twixt (2011): Read our review. ‘s horror flop barely received a theatrical release and was slammed by nearly everyone (except us). Buy Twixt.

Vanishing Waves (2012): A therapist becomes erotically involved with a patient in a coma when he uses an experimental technique to enter her sleeping consciousness. The biggest “bonus” extra in this 2-disc set from Artsploitation Films is actually director Kristina Buozyte’s first feature film, 2008’s The Collector, in its entirety. Buy Vanishing Waves.
