Since I have been rather busy lately, let's do an informal poll:

Creepy, surreal, scary, stupid, or just plain baffling, let us know what they are!

1. Forbidden Zone
2. Eraserhead
3. Pink Flamingos
4. Phantom of the Paradise
5. Desperate Living

I didn't like Eraserhead, but I have no problem admitting that it was eerie and surreal, 'cause it just is.

By the way, hope you don't mind but I added Forbidden Zone to the group's interests... that movie is just so fucked up that it should be illegal NOT to include it!

1. Begotten
2. Lucifer Rising/Invocation of My Demon Brother (tie)
3. What Is It?
4. Godmonster of Indian Flats
5. Human Highway

There's some movie out there that is a thinly-veiled manual on the fundamental basics of Chaos magic(k), some ridiculously low-budget sci-fi thing that somehow got a VHS release back when video stores were willing to take *anything* as long as it filled the shelves, whose central object of power resembled a urinal cake. I saw it once nearly 10 years ago, and despite it profoundly affecting me (in my very, very altered state of mind), I cannot remember for the life of me what it was called. It'd be up there if I could.

I don't have a top five, but here are couple that come to mind...

The Happiness of the Katakuris was weird and baffling. It's a Japanese musical directed by Takashi Miike, and it's about a family who operates and inn (newly purchased) where all of the guests keep kicking the bucket. There's even a scene where a little asian woman gets fucked so hard by a sumo wrestler that she's completely lodged into the mattress...

Kissed is a movie about necrophilia, and it's actually quite good. It certainly belongs on the weird list, though.

Welcome to Woop Woop is one of the weirdest, greatest flicks I've seen. I don't even know how to describe it. There's a group of really bizarre people who live "off the map" in the outback of australia, and they make dog food out of kangaroos. They watch and listen to nothing but Rogers and Hammerstein, and they shoot anyone who tries to leave. Once in their lives they get to leave and find a mate, and you can just see the flick. It's weird. It's funny, and it has "beef curtains"
