NOTICE – POSSIBLE DOWNTIME: Our webhost tells us they will be upgrading the servers on Monday, Nov. 9 and Tuesday, Nov. 10. This may cause some limited interruptions in the availability of these pages.
Finally, we have an early frontrunner for weirdest movie of 2009! But what is it? Spike (Adaptation) Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are? The independent twentysomethings-get-slaughtered-in-the woods horror film I Can See You? Or are we contrarians who actually liked the widely despised Donnie Darko direct-to-DVD sequel, S. Darko? Check this space in next week to find out the shocking answer!
For our “weirdest search term used to locate the site” pick of the week, we’re dipping back into the overflowing “disturbing” file for “watch free rape nuns movies in the farms.” We find this request both disquieting and encouraging. The weird specificity of the search: not only “nuns,” but nuns “in the farms”—sets it apart from the generic sordid “watch free rape movies” garbage we get all the time.
But why in the world would we find a rape search encouraging? Because it came from the Islamic Republic of Egypt. I say this more than half-seriously: porn will destroy Islamic fundamentalism. By pumping free porn behind enemy lines via broadband, we teach them the true value of freedom. It may be a NeoCon myth that the huddled masses out there all yearn to be free, but they most certainly yearn to masturbate to freaky porn. Show them a vision of a land overflowing with free rape movies, and they will eventually demand their governments give them the same freedom. Worldwide democracy and an unprecedented era of global peace will inevitably follow.
On a more pleasant note, we finally have a Miss Weird Movie 2009! Her name is Lola, and her favorite site is http://366weirdmovies.com!
Much thanks to the anonymous webmaster who spammed our server logs with this autogenerated image in order to promote some service or other, I forgot what it was.
Thanks to our decision to focus on 2009 releases, the reader-suggested review queue is growing quite unruly: Greaser’s Palace (substituted for Institute Benjamenta), Waking Life, Survive Style 5+, The Dark Backward, The Short Films of David Lynch, Santa Sangre, Dead Man, Inland Empire, Monday (assuming I can find an English language version), The Abominable Dr. Phibes, Barton Fink, What? (Diary of Forbidden Dreams), Meatball Machine, Xtro, Basket Case, Suicide Club, O Lucky Man! , Harmony Korine’s Trash Humpers (if it’s released), Takashi Miike’s Gozu, Tales of Ordinary Madness, The Wayward Cloud, Kwaidan, Six-String Samurai, Andy Warhol’s Trash, Altered States, Memento, Nightmare Before Christmas/Vincent/Frankenweenie, Johnny Got His Gun, and The Science of Sleep. Although we’re focusing on 2009 release at the moment, Johnny Got His Gun is likely to jump the line due to the fact that this long-unavailable movie finally got a DVD release this year.
