WHAT’S IN THE PIPELINE

Coming up next week: reviews of the Roger Corman quickie The Little Shop of Horrors (1960), the best black comedy about a man-eating plant ever filmed in 48 hours; the seminal surreal cyperpunk pic Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989);  Lon Chaney‘s 1925 The Monster; a 366 Underground report on the experimental Wrists (2011); and possibly even a bonus review hidden in there somewhere.

It was a sick and disturbing week for weird search terms used to locate the site.  People flocked to search engines desperately looking for movies matching the following twisted descriptions: the awful “3 weird robots rape a girl,” the Father’s Day-themed “movie of pubic hair of old man dad,” and, of course, this week’s weirdest search term of the week, “silent film with a dwarf climbing into a vagina black and white.”  As you read this, we’re on the lookout for any movies matching the above descriptions for possible future review and certification.

Here’s the ever-growing reader-suggested review queue (more titles after break): Tetsuo (next week!); Perfume: The Story of a Murderer; Lunacy [Sílení]; Inmortel (2004); Dead Ringers; Kairo [AKA Pulse]; The Guatemalan Handshake; Dead Leaves; The Seventh SealPrimerA Boy and His Dog; 200 Motels; Private  Parts (1972); Saddest Music in the World; Mulholland  Drive; The American Astronaut; Blood Tea and Red StringsThe 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 InchEven 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 FilmsFreaked; Session 9; Schizopolis; Strings; Dellamorte Dellamore [AKA Cemetery Man]; The Hour-glass  Sanatorium [Saanatorium pod klepsidra]; Liquid SkyThe Quiet; Shock Treatment; Tuvalu; “Zombie Jesus”  (if we can locate it); The Bed-Sitting Room; 3 Dev AdamFantastic Planet; “Twin Peaks” (TV series); SocietyMay; The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th  Dimension; Little Otik; Final ProgrammeCareful; 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 Sailor8 1/2; Dororo; Lost Highway; Valerie and Her Week  of Wonders; Dogville; Julien Donkey-boy; AmelieThe 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); MarquisHell 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; TeethVera; Weirdsville; Prospero’s BooksInferno; Garden State; Persona; The Real McCoy; Rat Pfink a Boo Boo; Themroc; Candy (1968); Run Lola Run; Pink Flamingos; Buffalo ’66Northfork; Weekend; The Room; Glen or Glenda?; Night of the Hunter; The Fox FamilyMidnight 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 VelvetID (2005); Master of the Flying Guillotine; Yesterday Was a Lie; The Ninth Configuration; Love Me If You DareForbidden Zone; The Cell; My Dinner with AndreThe 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. The “silent film with a dwarf climbing into a vagina black and white” sounds like Pedro Almodovar’s “Talk To Her” (the film within the film part). Looking forward to Tetsuo immensely.

  2. I think you guys may be on to something! Once again, what seems weird to the uninitiated turns out to have a perfectly logical explanation. Plus, Hable Con Ella [Talk to Her] just went up on my personal “to see” list.

    Now anyone want to take a stab at explaining the thought process of the person looking for old man pubic hair?
