A couple of announcements: today is your last day to view the experimental short film 9 (not related to the Shane Acker animated feature). Tomorrow we will remove it, but it will be replaced with another 366 Exclusive short film.
In other news, thanks to Cameron, we now have our own 366 Weird Movies YouTube page, although it’s still in development. You won’t find much there that you wouldn’t find here, but that could change in the future.
Expect to see reviews of Larry Cohen’s wacky genre mix God Told Me To [AKA Demon] (1976) next week, along with a review of Harry Kümel’s nearly forgotten Malpertuis, and a surprise or two.
For the weirdest search term used to locate the site last week, we’ll go with “Who wrote the diary? Why did Robin decided to write a diary?” But an honorable mention goes to “Using the following steps write an hour by hour diary of a festival,” since two people apparently used this exact same term to find the site, probably for the same homework assignment.
We know we’ve been derelict in logging in reader reviews, and promise to be better about it—starting next week. The ever-growing reader-suggested review queue looks like this: Cowards Bend the Knee (substituted for the unavailable Angel’s Egg), Greasers Palace (substituted for Institute Benjamenta), Pan’s Labyrinth, Ex Drummer, 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, and Basket Case.
