10 Years of Bizarre
We've been doing this for a while now and we've had some pretty weird and wild stuff come through the mailbox. And here's a dirty fistful of our favourites! Long-time aficionados of our Late Night Bizarre screenings will relish (yes - relish) the opportunity to relive this collection of out of control classics. More recent initiates to the genre will have a chance to catch up and roll around in this swirling, murky pool of true cult cinema. Sunglasses optional, fancy dress encouraged, funny hats applauded. No puritans admitted.

|Fantasie In Bubblewrap
Even bubblewrap has feelings. Lots of feelings. Especially when you start popping them one at a time. They begin to wonder out loud which bubble will be next.
United StatesRuntime: 4:20
Wild & hand drawn! Mild mannered Johnny goes berzerk when his computer crashes.
United StatesRuntime: 3:00
Igor Coric, Sheldon Lieberman
Utterly hilarious! This guy will have you rolling in the aisles until they fill up with glacier melt.
|Journey To The Disney Vault
David Wachtenheim, Glen Steinmacher, Robert Marianetti
A wicked, behind the scenes look at what happened to Walt's head - among other scarey Mouseland outrages.
United StatesRuntime: 3:09
They don't come much crazier than this. Two guys trying to shoot an illegal car-chase movie cross paths with a very unusual cat.
United KingdomRuntime: 3:00
Crossing a line that even Kricfalusi might have drawn. A demented look at the origins of kiddie ice treats.
|Golden Age: Hansel And Gretel
Did they or didn't they?
United StatesRuntime: 1:50
|The Evil Empire
Federico Solmi, Russell Lowe
A porn crazed pope sends an army into battle.
|Ah Pook Is Here
"After I become Death, Death is the seed from which I grow". One of the most atmospheric animated films ever made. Featuring the voice of William Burroughs and the music of John Cale.
United KingdomRuntime: 6:04
|I Live In The Woods
It has to be every crazed hillbilly's dream to kill all the cuddly animals with his bare hands. But what about God? Is nothing sacred? If you like your Gods intact and all powerful, this is probably not the film for you.
United StatesRuntime: 3:26
One of the most popular animated films every made. Only the hilarious genius of Mr Hertzfeldt could so comprehensively capture the pure evil that beats in the heart of every balloon.
United StatesRuntime: 5:22
A complex, utterly surreal examination of both youth and the animation art-form in their determination to ignore the physical laws of nature. Or something!
|Weekend Pussy Hunt
It's not what you think. An agitated dog tries to explain to both his wives why he has to track down and beat a cat. More double entendres than a "Carry On" marathon.
United StatesRuntime: 3:53
|Down To The Bone
Life just ain't no good when you've had your skin pulled off you.
United StatesRuntime: 4:14
|Malice In Wonderland
Definitely not one for the kiddies. A scabrously sexual, super surreal retelling of much beloved story that some how includes a girl, a rabbit and a lot of colour.
United StatesRuntime: 4:30
Even a written synopsis for this would have problems passing the censor. A knitted exploration of...well..... personal bits!
United KingdomRuntime: 4:00
Ingenious, artful cruelty.
|Saddam and Osama
David Wachtenheim, Robert Marianetti
Politically incorrect - check. Horribly slanderous - check. Too hilarious not to screen - check. Let's screen this baby!
