SXSW is a beautiful oasis of brisket, bass-heavy music, and bold filmmaking in one of the weirdest cities in the world, Austin, Texas. Every year, thousands of people flock to the festival to see some truly unique, challenging films and fill their bodies with all the breakfast tacos they can handle. So, whether you’re currently gorging yourself on all manner of kooky, off-kilter cinema at SXSW or you’re stuck at home living vicariously through the tweets of others, I’ve got something for you. Today on The Dan Cave, we’re celebrating the “Keep It Weird” vibe that permeates both Austin and SXSW by shining a light on seven of the weirdest films ever made.
From murderous rubber creatures to Sean Connery in a bathing sit that would make Borat blush, there’s a little something for everyone in today’s episode. If you’re someone who likes movies that make you wonder “what the hell did I just watch?”, then trust me when I say that these movies will leave you more existentially distressed than ever.
Now, obviously, there’s more than just seven weird films out there, so be sure to let me know your favorites in the comments below. Or, hit me up on Twitter (@Osteoferocious) and we can chat more about some of the stranger slices of cinema available out there.
