    Watched something weird last night called Outpost 11. About 3 guys in a military installation isolated in the Arctic Circle in an alternative history.

    Never experienced the feeling of being pulled into a movie before like this. But the ending was just pure dross.

    Donnie Darko stands out for me in terms of weirdness.

    Jaws: The Revenge stands out for all the wrong reasons, particularly the way in which the shark dies.

    I feel the remake of The Omen was particularly odd

    I watched the original and the remake a week apart and feel like they were nearly identical

    Normally they're similar unlike the Ryan Reynolds amityville horror retread

    The title alone screams odd.

    Anthing by Jodorowsky is as weird as it is glorious. The Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre, The Dance of Reality, Endless Poetry. Apparently he doesnt allow any actors in his film who havent had sex with him, done drugs with him.

    Also Astron 6 put out some great films. I epsecially liked Fathers Day which is about a serial killer who goes around raping and murdering dads. They also did the Editor which was done by all English actors but then dubbed into eightysish sound voice overs.

    Can't go past 1970s Eastern European movies for a touch of oddness. Make that great slabs of oddness.

    Two which immediately come to mind are:-

    Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970) - Czechoslovakian horror.

    Sweet Movie (1974) - Yugoslavian written and directed dramatic comedy.

    The makers of this had to be inspired by Street Trash

    It was fan voted. If you remember Grindhouse ( Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino), it had some fake movie trailers inbetween the movies. So fans voted which one they would like made. That was the one. I love it. It's the best of bad 80's movies.

    Peter Jackson's early work is all good. The very best of course is Meet the Feebles. Check it out.

    The quintessential odd movie. The scene with the mother is one of the worst ever ive seen. Up there with the pink flamingo one. Five stars.
