WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE

Don’t forget to participate in the July contest to win a Donnie Darko Blu-ray (UK & Ireland) or a Donnie Darko poster.  It’s easy; all you have to do is make two comments on this site (and one is just the notice that you want to enter the contest)!  Your chances of being the winner are excellent…

In terms of upcoming reviews, we may have a few surprises this week, but definitely expect coverage of the Christian Bale psychological thriller The Machinist (2004); the recent Japanese fantasy gorefest Samurai Princess (2009); and, on the very opposite scale of Japanese horror, the goreless, poetic classic Kwaidan (1964) (from the reader-suggested review queue).

It was a very weak week in terms of weird search terms used to locate the site.  But we have to give props to the person who came here on a search for “Love, Sex and Weird Movies.”  In fact, that gives us an idea.  Be on the lookout for our “366 Weird Dates” matchmaking service, debuting very soon…
