Once a year, Austin transforms itself from a deeply weird, hipster-filled city that constantly smells like brisket into a… slightly more crowded, deeply weird, hipster-filled city that constantly smells like brisket for South by Southwest.
We just spent three glorious days at SXSW hosting a pop-up Saloon with our pals from Geek and Sundry and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party, interviewing the casts of Vice Principals, Preacher, Silicon Valley, and many more. But the Party is still raging down in Austin, Texas—one of my favorite parts of the entire event is the film festival, which plays host to some of the weirdest, wildest, and balls-out craziest films you’ll see all year.
Case in point, the brand new, first-person action thriller Hardcore Henry, which our editor-in-chief Rachel Heine said was like “The Raid and Kingsman: The Secret Service had a really fucked up baby.” So, in honor of these movies that are a little off the beaten path, today’s episode of The Dan Cave is celebrating eight of the most WTF-worthy films that you need to see before you die.
