Reviews definitely appearing next week: we’ll be covering Desperate Living (1977), the third and final entry in John Waters‘ “Trash Trilogy;” looking into the 2009 “Un Certain Regard” winner, Dogtooth (2009), the absurd story of three children hidden away from the real world by rich parents; and rolling our eyes at Thankskilling, the DIY horror-comedy about an axe wielding turkey puppet. From the reader suggested review queue, we’ll be tackling the “Beat” Kitano comedy Getting Any? and Michel Gondry‘s surreal Science of Sleep. And don’t forget to check back this evening for our review of one of the most outlandish exploitation movies ever made, 1934’s incredible Maniac.
It was a good week for entertainingly weird search terms used to locate the site. The perverts (God love ’em) were out in full force, scouring 366 for info on “Georges Melies adult movies,” “overdeveloped jugs,” “weird sissy sex movies,” “mofo sexo,” and hoping for the opportunity to “watch a movie of sexual footmen and his daughter.” The most striking search term, however, in our view was “wierd girl has unusualy tiny vagina.”
