Top 10: Bizarre Horror #2

05.30.2008by: Matt Withers
Horror comes in all shapes and sizes. Some of it rocks, some of it sucks, and some of it just leaves you saying "Meh." But there is a whole other possibility that almost defies attempts at criticism. It's the flicks that at the end you simply think WTF was that?!

Now I'm not one who generally thinks because I don't understand something it must have been ultra deep, in fact my ego requires I go in the other direction on that point. Still, it's hard to discount the power of those works that, while not necessarily "understandable" do kick your brain all over the place and permanently brand you.

So let's take a look at a group of the oddest, weirdest, most head tripping horror flicks you'll likely ever see. And if you make it back alive from the trip, then spit bullets on what crazy sights you've seen in your life.

WARNING - WEIRD SHITE AHEAD!

5. LIQUID SKY


Did you think the whole concept of I COME IN PEACE was the coolest original idea you'd ever seen? Bummer, 'cause it wasn't original. The basic premise was found in LS, although instead of Dolph Lundgren battling a mean WWE-style alien, you get a lead playing both a male and female, and at one point her female character fellates her male character. Yeah. Add in plenty of New Wave styles and surprisingly aggressive synth music to get a concoction that is best sipped when you've had one too many of whatever you like to have one too many of.

4. SINGAPORE SLING


It's film noir. Wait no, it's a psycho-sexual melodrama. Or maybe it's the grossest collection of sexual deviancy in cinematic history. Nah, it's just a good old fashioned serial killer team flick. Basically mom and daughter do all sorts of kinky sex murder things together while a down on his luck detective tries to survive the duo. Don't let the black and white fool you. This is a grotesque headtrip of the highest order.

3. BEGOTTEN


What? The? F*ck? I don't even know exactly what's going on in this flick because it's purposely shot in a grainy overdeveloped black and white that causes as many headaches as it does inspire any stylistic affection. Here's what I do know, though. It starts off with God Killing Himself and gets more uncomfortable and weird from there. You don't watch this movie. You survive it.

2. TETSUO - THE IRON MAN


What do you do when you've been anally raped by a chick's bio-mechanical metal rod? If your answer is grow a high-speed drill from your johnson and screw your girlfriend to death, then this is the movie for you. Much like many of Cronenburg's movies, TETSUO looks at how technology, in ways both chosen and not, has integrated itself into our lives so fully that we cannot keep the two separate. Now it doesn't do any of this in a way that makes sense from a linear narrative perspective, but it sure does create some amazingly unforgettable images.

1. ERASERHEAD


Has there ever been a surrealist work that was so widely accepted? I don't think so. A lot of that is because this isn't a movie that's meant to make sense in the traditional view. It's more a tapestry of images that create a horrific Rorschach experience for each and every viewer. The true beauty of Lynch's startling unique creation is that everyone agrees it's weird, but it's differently weird for each person. Confusing, horrifying, and enthralling all in one fell swoop. If you wanna get your bizarreness on, this freaky haired boy is the one to see.
