First off, merry Christmas to all our readers, and we hope that you have all been very weird this past year so that Santa will stuff your stocking full of the collected works of Stan Brackhage.

We won’t be taking Christmas off; you can expect to see our normal “Weird Horizon” column on Christmas Day, along with another unsettling holiday-themed short. The rest of the week, you can expect to see reviews of Dans Ma Peau [In My Skin] and Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women, and an introduction to the weird words of John M. Bennet, among other features.

In looking for the weirdest search term used to locate the site this week, we’ll stick with the holiday theme and nominate “singing santa and reindeer- I am a weirdo.”

The ever-growing reader-suggested review queue looks like this: 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!, Trash Humpers (when/if released), Gozu, Tales of Ordinary Madness, The Wayward Cloud, Kwaidan, Six-String Samurai, Andy Warhol’s Trash, Altered States, Memento, Nightmare Before Christmas/Vincent/Frankenweenie, The Science of Sleep, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Gothic, The Attic Expeditions, After Last Season, Getting Any?, Performance, Being John Malkovich, The Apple, Southland Tales, Arizona Dream, Spider (2002), Songs From The Second Floor, Singapore Sling, Alice [Neco z Alenky], Dark Country, Necromania (1971, Ed Wood), Hour of the WolfMirrorMask, Possession, Suspiria, and Mary and Max.  Honestly, that list should take us all the way through 2010!
