Description: What were they smoking? Odd little movies that are surreal, weird or just plain bizarre.

Fando & Lis (1967)
  Alexandro Jodorowski is the king of surreal cinema, even surpassing Dali and Bunel by having a narrative to hang his weird episodes on.
Django Kill! (1967)
Not Rated
  Out of the minor sub-genre of surreal spaghetti westerns, this is probably the most gripping. Some truly disturbing images and a general air of paranoia make this a bit of a gothic horror movie as well.
Possession (1981)
  Quite possibly the most bizarre film ever made with a top-drawer cast. Disturbing, surreal and violent. Somewhat Cronenbergish, but far less accessable. One of my faves.
Videodrome (1982)
Not Rated
  The apex of Cronenberg's career or just the most commercial? Either way, it's an amazing film that is both accessable and esoteric. Intensely graphic, yet thoughtful. Has a narrative, yet is open to interpretation. Excellent.
Guinea Pig: Mermaid in a Manhole / He Never Dies (2004)
Not Rated
  Mermaid is one of the more bizarre entries in the hyper-gory Japanese Guinea Pig series that is just plain whacked from frame one right down to the nasty end.
Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989)
Not Rated
  Shinya Tsukamoto virtually invented his own genre with this hyper-kinetic B&W short film that completely reinvents the bio-mechanical art of Geiger and Cronenberg.
Gemini (1999)
  Tsukamoto shows how much he has progressed in the 11 years since Tetsuo. This intricately made thriller uses color, light and shadow, costumes and settings with amazing dexterity creating a world all it's own. Light years above his previous work.
Charisma (1999)
  Pretty much all of Kioshi Kirosawa's films belong in this category so it was tough to chose one, but this is definitely one weird flick that's not really his best (I think Pulse takes that honor), but has it's moments.
Visitor Q (2001)
Not Rated
  Takashi Miike's warped, surreal reinvention of the "family" soap that brings bad taste and abiguous weirdness to all new heights... or depths.
Cure (1997)
