"What is it that makes a film "weird"? Really, the term "weird film" is one that's thrown around almost every day, and could mean many different things to many different. It could refer to anything from a film that simply evokes some trippy imagery or plays around with the conventions of its genre, to a film that completely defies the conventions of cinematic narrative and inspires us to question our very understanding of what a movie can and should be.
Whatever your notion of a "weird film" might happen to be, though, the fact is that, in amidst all the samey cinema out there, there's also a great amount of strange, surreal, absurd, confounding, and downright weird movies that have slipped under the radar. After all, weird movies, by their very nature, tend to have a very niche audience; and if they're not marketed to that audience properly, they run a serious risk of simply not being seen at all."
