We spend this week’s episode in search of the weird. To be precise, we each select three of our favourite weird films and talk about them. Some of the choices may be what you expect (although we avoided Cronenberg, having devoted a show to him before), some may surprise you and some will probably make you think less of us as human beings.
Up till now, we’ve used the explicit tag on iTunes as a way to save Paul having to bleep out all Scott’s swearing (and save his energy for censoring mentions of A*****t F**h), but we really earn it this episode. One of the films is decidedly pornographic, and we don’t shy away from discussing details. Be warned.
Scott mentions the old Scala Cinema in Kings Cross, London, and the wonderful printed programmes they used to issue to members. Here’s a picture of one of them to give you some context.
As usual, we didn’t tell each other what our choices were ahead of time, and we actually managed to avoid any duplication. If you want the films to come as a surprise to you too, look away now.

I watched House last night. At first I questioned just how weird it was going to be, but it didn’t disappoint. The choice of music throughout really is very strange. There are moments of gonzo humour, voyeurism, bizarre gore, a piano eating someone, animated melons… do I need to go on. At times I questioned just whether I was enjoying it, but it’s only 88 minutes, I stuck with it and the ending was pleasantly rewarding.
I missed the name of Rubber as you introduced it, but thought it sounded familiar… great fun, highly recommended, and distinctly odd.
