So, I just watched The Loved One tonight. The cast included Jonathan Winters, Rod Steiger, and Liberace.

Very strange. Especially since it was made back in 1965.

What's the last good/weird (non-cannibal) movie you've watched?

One of my favorites is "Split Image" from 1982. It's the best of all the anti-religious cult scare films of the early 80s (1981's "Ticket To Heaven" is also worth checking out). It stars Michael O' Keefe as "Danny," a dorky high school gymnast who meets a beautiful girl that lures him into a David Koresh-styled cult (led by Peter Fonda). Danny is gradually brainwashed, loses his identity and forced to eat organic hippie slop (though at first he's resistant, and asks if there's a McDonalds near the compound). All this psychodrama occurs while cult members sing creepy bible camp songs ("He's Got the Whole In His hands," etc.) ad nauseum throughout the film. I won't give away the whole thing, but Danny's parents have to hire a coked-up James Woods to deprogram their son. The movie is an extremely overacted, hilarious and disturbing suburban nightmare (in the atmospheric vein of "Over The Edge," but different plot-wise and not as slow) that will stick with you lonnnggg after you see it. Seek this out at mom and pop video rental bargain bins (if those even exist anymore),'cause no one cares about his movie and it's not on DVD.

Cool topic, Bart!!!

"Forbiden Zone" 1980, Directed by Danny Elfman- Where does one start with a classic like "Forbiden Zone". To begin with, there was a lot of cocaine available in 1980. They didn't use any in the film but I think it may have inspired this surealistic tale of a foreign exchange student that ventures into her host families basement, seeking a door that will lead her into ...THE FORBIDEN ZONE.

The film becomes a little hard to follow. There is a King and Queen of the Forbiden Zone. The Queen is very much out of the Cruella DeVille school of acting as well as physique (only her tits don't sag so much). The King is the main reason to watch this movie. He was played by none other then Herve Veleches (Tatoo, from Fantasy Island). I don't think you need anymore reason to see this one. It was the only excuse I had.

I'm partial to The Blood-Spattered Bride, a lesbian vampire epic that appeared on the Ghoul show in the 80s. Filmed in Spain in 1972 (near the end of the repressive Franco era), BSB begins with a troubled pair of newlyweds, frigid wife Susan (Maribel Martin) and her sadistic, unnamed husband (Simon Andreu), who have a less than idyllic honeymoon at the husband's seaside ancestral mansion. The film becomes even more bizarre when a naked woman is found buried in the sand at the beach, breathing through a snorkel. The mysterious woman turns out to be Carmilla (Alexandra Bastedo), an alluring lesbian vampire who wants to kill the husband--and you can guess what plans she has for Susan. BSB is a wonderfully crazed film that features plenty of sex, gore and symbolism. My favorite scene: Carmilla and Susan make love off-screen in a ruined church. While the two women make extremely loud and intense lesbian sex noises, a doctor friend of the husband's spies on them with a dismayed expression, then walks away. Once you've seen The Blood-Spattered Bride, you won't forget it. Too bad the DVD is out of print.

i have this movie called "the incredible 2-headed transplant" starring casey kasem. not sure what year it was made but the movie came out on "hollywood's best" video in 1987.
there's a scientist who has transplanted a 2nd head onto a formerly singleheaded monkey in his basement laboratory. eventually he merges the head of a serial murderer with the head and body of his mildly retarded neighbor.
needless to say it's not really hollywood's best.

Anyone ever see the movie "Didn't You Hear" from 1970? It's about this depressed college kid who daydreams of he and his loner friends as pirates and taking control of "The Man's" islands. The movie is sad, surreal, psychotic and drenched in a spooky moog score by Mort Garson.

Probably the world's weirdest films were being made in America in the early 70s, and "Didn't You Hear" is just as screwed up as anything Jodorowsky ever did. It's my favorite movie ever. Ask me to dub you a copy.

The Blood-Spattered Bride, eh? That makes me think of the character in Kill Bill of the same name.

As a would-be movie-host, I own HUNDREDS of weird movies, and although I am familiar with the titles you have hitherto discussed, I have yet to acquire copies of them.The standard English-language version of "The Blood-Spattered Bride" is poorly edited (a literal chop-job; most of the English-language versions of Spanish horror-films from that period are). "The Forbidden Zone" can be quite gross. And if you have never seen a movie starring Bruce Dern and Casey Kasem, I would strongly suggest "The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant" (which also features Larry Vance, who played an LA movie-host named Seymour -- he also has a significant cameo in "The Witchmaker"). I DO have my own favorites, of course: I don't own a copy of "Repo Man" yet, but I DO own a copy of the movie soundtrack and a copy of the SCRIPT! I am waiting for the EDITED-FOR-TELEVISION version of "Repo Man" to be released because the dubbed-in "tamer language" is such a HOOT: "Flip you!" "Freeze, Melon-Farmer!"

Two comments on the responses to my Blood-Spattered Bride post.

1. JMD, I'm sure that Quentin Tarantino consciously referred to BSB in Kill Bill. It fits in with his enthusiasm for violent horror films.

2. Baron Nightwolf, as far as I know, the out of print Anchor Bay DVD of BSB is uncut. It's worth searching for.

Yeah, "Cemetery Man" is cool, but one of the weirdest films I ever saw was "12 Monkeys and a Funeral", esp. the part where Hugh Grant and Kristin Scott Thomas were in that hotel room, and Hugh Grant reached into his mouth with a pair of pliers and pulled his tooth out! CREEPY!
Re: Weird Movies

Hmmmm...I vividly remember "Split Image", worth viewing for James Woods' performance as a coked out deprogrammer. It used to be shown alot on the Showtime and The Movie Channel back in the eighties. Unfortunately, Ted Kotcheff went from directing interesting exploitation stuff like this, to doing Red Shoe Diarie episodes and Weekend at Bernie's.

The Blood Splattered Bride is being released as a extra to Blue Underground's deluxe edition of Daughters of Darkness, available on "October 31st.

Daughters of Darkness is a great existentialist, lesbian vampire movie from the early seventies. Highly recommended for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

Re: "Cemetery Man"
That's one of my favorite movies of the 90s, and here's something weird: Michele Soavi, who apprenticed with Dario Argento, and directed "CM,"
went on to direct a mini-series on the life of St. Francis of Assisi for Italian television, which is quite beautiful actually, and available from Netflix. (Disclaimer: I dozed off at one point, but I'm pretty sure that there aren't any cannibals in it.)

A lot of times, I acquire Grade-Z movies just because I like their theme-songs and/or other music. That's why I own copies of "The Green Slime", "Village Of The Giants", and -- get this -- "Modesty Blaise"! As for now, I am seeking a copy of an ultra-boring Italian sci-fi flick directed by Antonio Margorhetti (or is it Margoghetti or Margaghetti?) called "Diovali della Spazio", or in English "The Snow Devils". It's a great cure for insomnia, but has a delightful theme-song. Go figure.
Re: Weird Movies

"Is it something in your head? You'll believe it when you're dead! Green Slime!" (Or something like that.) I don't think I ever heard that song, but Crocus "David Thomas" Behemoth wrote about it in The Cleveland Scene in '74 or so.

damn straight great soundtrack by the way...which we have in the station...speaking of which...me and lady "HOT" was watching this 80's horror TV series on one of them new cable channels. Each episode had two half hour mini stories and they were basically a horror and mystery type theme...one of these stories had Emilio estaves as this little punk kid from the suburbs who would hustle at the arcade down town...the cool thing about the entire episode is that when ever he played a game at the arcade he would put on his walk man and music would start playing.....in less than half hour they had played minor threat...several Fear songs...black flag and among others... it was fucking awesome....the episode was No repo man but you could tell that Emilio had an influence on the music and to think he would end up doing mighty ducks.

The series you mention was probably "Tales From The Darkside". The '80s version of 'The Twilight Zone' was too lame to produce something like you described. And "Freddy's Nightmares" and "Tales From The Crypt" were just too obvious to be mistaken for anything else. Besides, "Tales From The Crypt" harkens from the '90s.

I saw Forbidden Zone once, 6 years ago. I haven't ever been able to find it. I even had my comic-con going friends look for it.
Re: Weird Movies

I saw Frobidden Zone on one of the Showtime channels (I'm not sure which) back in August.

I want to thank the fine folks at the CWRU Film Society for screening Zardoz at the last Sci-fi film Marathon. It is truly one of my all time favorites. Sean Connery running around in red underwear and shooting people makes for a good movie. A giant monolithic head that vomits guns from it's mouth is a plus. Throw in a bunch lot's of boobs and it makes for a somewhat surreal post apocolyptic romp.
