WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE

Just a reminder: voting for the 2010 Weridcademy Awards continues until Feb 27th.  Make your voice heard here.

The cold and flu season finally caught up with us this week, effectively knocking the entire staff of 366 Weird Movies out of commission for several days.  Fortunately, our correspondents are scattered across the globe, and with their help we’re still able to put out a full week of reviews.  Kevyn Knox will be chiming in with his take on 2010 Palme D’Or winner Uncle Boonmee Who Can Remember His Past Lives (2010), the second weird movie of last year dealing with a reincarnation theme, and Pamela De Graff will recommend Neil Jordan’s startling and hallucinatory tale about the coming of age of The Butcher Boy (1997).  Assuming 366weirdmovies is able to pick himself up off the floor, he’ll offer a second take on the much-requested Dogtooth (2009), and Alfred Eaker will bring us a spooky Hammer horror double feature: The Horror of Dracula (1958) and Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1968).

Speaking of Ms. De Graff, she features in our weirdest search terms of the past week, as someone came to this site looking for “pam degraff placenta encapsulation.”  (Pam says, “Placentas I can handle—it’s the ‘Pam De Graff + measurements + kidnap box’ search term that worries me”).  We also like the search term “nazi schoolgirls tubes” (Nazi schoolgirls are an obvious fetish, but looking for their tubes is just weird).  But, in our quest to find “something more weird than this” (another search term we encountered), we finally settled on the incomprehensible “carnivorous monkeys and several other pereplegic loony bins” as our weirdest search term of the week.

Here’s the ridiculously long and ever growing reader-suggested review queue (I will keep expanding this list as long as you guys keep adding them): Possession; Wild Zero; Nothing (2003); The Peanut Butter Solution; Perfume: The Story of a Murderer; Faust; Sublime Pink Floyd: The Wall; Toto the Hero [Toto le Héros]; Paprika; The Holy Mountain; Brazil; The Casserole Masters; Dark Crystal; Throw Away Your Books, Rally in the Streets; The Nines; The Pillow Book; Final Flesh; Lunacy [Sílení]; Inmortel (2004); Tetsuo; Dead Ringers; Kairo [AKA Pulse]; The Guatemalan Handshake; Dead Leaves; The Seventh Seal; PrimerA Boy and His Dog; 200 Motels; Private Parts (1972); Saddest Music in the World; Mulholland Drive; The American Astronaut; Blood Tea and Red Strings; The Films of Kenneth Anger, Vol. II (for Lucifer Rising, among others); Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory; The Bride of Frank; La Grande Bouffe; Hedwig and the Angry Inch; Even Dwarves Started Small; Bunny & the Bull; “I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a Meat Hook, and Now I Have a Three-Picture Deal at Disney” (assuming I can find it); Cinema 16: European Short Films; Freaked; Session 9; Schizopolis; Strings; Dellamorte Dellamore [AKA Cemetery Man]; The Hour-glass Sanatorium [Saanatorium pod klepsidra]; Liquid Sky; The Quiet; Shock Treatment; Tuvalu; “Zombie Jesus” (if we can locate it); The Bed-Sitting Room; 3 Dev Adam; Fantastic Planet; “Twin Peaks” (TV series); Society; May; The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension; Little Otik; Final Programme; Careful; Sweet Movie; The Triplets of Belleville; “Foutaises” (short); Johnny Suede; “Jam” (TV, UK, 2000), The Tale of the Floating World, Un Chien Andalou, Bloodsucking Freaks; Fellini Satyricon; Three Crowns of the Sailor; 8 1/2; Dororo; Lost Highway; Valerie and Her Week of Wonders; Dogville; Julien Donkey-boy; Amelie; The Ten; The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao; 1; Fast, Cheap and Out of Control; Tokyo Gore Police; At Midnight I’ll Take Your Soul; The Trial [Le procès) (1962); Marquis; Hell Comes to FrogtownSeom [The Isle]; Allegro Non Troppo; Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus; Lust in the Dust; Celine and Julie Go Boating; “Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life;” The Magic Christian; Black Cat, White Cat; The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T; Abnormal: The Sinema of Nick Zedd; Robot Monster; Nightdreams; 3 Women; “To Oblivion”; Rubin & Ed; Teeth; Vera; Weirdsville; Prospero’s Books; Inferno; Garden State; Persona; The Real McCoy; Rat Pfink a Boo Boo; Themroc; Candy (1968); Run Lola Run; Pink Flamingos; Buffalo ’66; Northfork; Weekend; The Room; Glen or Glenda?; Night of the Hunter; The Fox Family; Midnight Skater; Angelus; Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs; Twister (1989); Yokai Monsters, Vol. 1: Spook Warfare [AKA Big Monster War]; Britannia Hospital; This Filthy Earth; Conspirators of Pleasure; Piano Tuner of Earthquakes; Clean, Shaven; Bubba Ho-Tep; Sheitan; Innocence; “Chingsao the Clown”; Léolo; 2001: A Space Odyssey; Blue Velvet; ID (2005); Master of the Flying Guillotine; Yesterday Was a Lie; The Ninth Configuration; Love Me If You Dare; Forbidden Zone; The Cell; My Dinner with Andre; The Illustrated ManFando y Lis; Rampo Noir; Head; Christmas on Mars; “Broken Glass”; Videodrome; Air Doll; The Ossuary and Other Tales; Arrebato; Symbol; Wicked City (1992 live action); Barbarella; Picnic at Hanging Rock; The Cars that Ate Paris; The Boxer’s Omen [aka Mo]; Solyaris (1972); Portrait of Jennie; Salo, the 120 Days of Sodom; The Last Sunset (1961); Orpheus (1950); A Scanner Darkly; Safe; The Atrocity Exhibition; Gainsbourg (Vie héroïque); Slacker; Goke, Body Snatcher From Hell; Color of Pomegranates; Horror Express; Noroi; A Serbian Film (if ever released on DVD, which seems questionable at this point); Cutie Honey; The Shape of Things; On the Silver Globe; Monty Python and the Holy Grail; Sgt.

  1. Received via email from “JT”:

    “I’m proud to say that I’m the culprit that searched for your current weirdest search term of the week, ‘carnivorous monkeys and several other pereplegic loony bins.’ I feel obliged to explain myself and the explanation is simple. I searched for that phrase with the intention of it winding up as your weirdest search term. After viewing ‘Marvelous, Keen Loony Bin’ I decided to retain several words from that entry – paraplegic, loony, and bin being those words – and then just toyed around with other terms until I found something that caused Google to kick up 366 Weird Movies. And – it’s as strange to me as it is to you – the magical phrase was ‘carnivorous monkeys and several other pereplegic loony bins.’ However, I’m very disappointed with myself – I misspelled paraplegic. Anyway, it wound up as the weirdest search term of the week, so I’m happy, and I hope you and your readers were amused by it.”

    We knew it! This contest is rigged!

  2. I was the one who asked you to review wool 100% ans either it is a typing error or a different movie but the the above list it says “Crimewave Wool 100%” Im guessing instead of Crimewave; Wool 100%;
