What is the weirdest movie you've ever seen, or own in your collection?

For me, I'll have to think long and hard, because film is one of my hobbies.

However, a top contender is Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter. It's definitely right up there in odd-factors.

Movie Listing on IMDB

The wierdest movie i've ever had the pleasure of owning was 'Pink Flamingos' i could make at least obscure sense of everything else i own but that movie just freaked me out the first time i ever saw it. 'The Kentucky Fried Movie' came a close second.

The Ring seemed very weird to me it moved along so fast and it made no sense to me at all.

I have to add Existenz to my list.

I was watching it with a friend of mine and we were both looking at each other going, "WTF???" then it hit us that it was a game and we got it. We're both long-term gamers from back in the 80's so once it clicked we enjoyed it. But up until that point we were going to shut it off it was so out there.

I think Attack of the Killer Tomatoes must be up there.

Plan 9 from Outer Space is actually so bad it's great!

So many others, too numerous to mention...

"In The Mouth of Madness", starring Sam Neal. (80's flick) Anyone seen it?

This was a doozie!

Watching good ol' Sam at the end of the movie watching himself on screen literally laughing himself to death. Weird..Weird ending.

This one is way out there but pretty good with Deborah Harry. At one point she pulls a videotape out of a guys stomach.

Videodrome (1983)

...I'm something of a movie buff... I worked part-time for a company

called Audience Response, during the mid90's...

One of the weirdiest, yet enjoyable movies I have seen was

Mulholland Drive by director David Lynch.

Eraserhead, also by David Lynch.

There aren't stranger movies.

Sanctum ,'Withnail and I' is an absolute classic film-good call

As for weird ones 'Kung pow' has got to be up there, its bonkers!

Kung Pow rocks - totally crazy.

Any cantopop based film will drive you nuts. Not all Chinese language films as there as some shockingly good, very cheaply produced ones.

Loads of films made in about 10 minutes with some local starlet where some wierd s*%t happens and it's explained away by a simple one linner. Script by A. four. year. old.

One night in Mong Kok. Is a fine movie, if you can handle subtitles, watch it.

The weirdest movie I have to say I seen was The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.. and to top it off the first time I ever saw it I was SNIP.

Weirdest? Ha. I could post a list as long as my arm. But for brevity's sake, I'll just turn y'all on to one of my most recent finds-

Bubba Ho-Tep

Elvis didn't die, he's in an old age home along with JFK who has been turned into an African American. And they're being stalked by a soul-stealing mummy. And stuff.

For Bruce Campbell fans, specifically and weird cinema enthusiasts, in general.

Oh, yeah. It's from the guy that did the "Phantasm" flicks.

[#1985]

Can I throw Showgirls out there as weird? It's one of those movies that after your dont watching it, you beg for the two hours of your life back.......... EVERYTIME you watch it. hehee.

Phantasm was a strange movie

Kentucky Fried Movies was hysterical but Groove Tube was far funnier. They came out around the same time, when film makers were trying to push the envelope, see what they could get away with etc. If you have never seen Groove Tube, it is worth the work finding it. Another entry in this area is Elephant Parts by Michael Nesmith (yup, the monkee).

Jacob's Ladder was disturbing and weird as hell.

Blue Velvet - Another David Lynch gem.

I'd have to say Gummo. What an odd movie it was. I usually tend to like movies that are a bit on the weird side. I did not like this movie.

Very good movie. Secret Window was also pretty strange, but I think Donnie Darko has everything beat in the "weird" department.

And burying the needle on the ol' Weird -O- Meter:

The Terror of Tiny Town. To my knowledge, the only all-midget western. Includes a singing cowboy and everything. if you think midget wrestling is entertaining, this is for you.

Every bit as bad as you imagine it might be.

A better movie (damning with faint praise) is the Roddy Piper classic, Hell Comes to Frogtown. Better than an all-midget western that should've had the celluloid cut up into mandolin picks, that is.

(And if "midget" isn't the preferred nomenclature, I apologise).
