Christopher Lesko one of many multi-talented creators in the bizarro scene, and one of his baby’s is this disturbing short film about two brothers celebrating with their new trophy. Wholesome!
It’s weird. It’s funky. It’s ready to fill your heart with horrendous horror and rapturous rap music. It’s Cody Goodfellow’s all-new all-different BABY GOT BASS!
The Slow Poisoner wishes for you to enter the wicked web of… SPIDORA!
Weird writer Adam Millard has written, directed, animated, and given artistic birth to his own stop motion short! It’s called WE’RE GONNA PLAY A GAME, and it’s a parody of the Saw franchise. Enjoy!
It blasted a hole in Kickstarter. It made the rounds on the indie film circuit; hitting 9 countries, 39 festivals, and winning 14 awards! People walked out. People cried blasphemy. Horror icons like Guillermo Del Toro, Mike Flanagan, John Shirley, and John Skipp each had their faces melted by it. And […]
We here at Bizarro Central enjoy disturbing sexual fetishes and uniquely executed violence, so Attack of the Adult Babies looks good enough to make us punch a butcher knife.
John Skipp is putting together a feature film where the house isn’t haunted. YOU ARE! And you can help make it happen! Hope in Hell Trailer + from Fungasm Press on Vimeo. Here’s the pitch from the man himself: For my 60th birthday, I swore a “bucket list vow” to […]
Grindhouse cinema comes to television with the debut of Blood Drive on the SyFy channel. Much of what SyFy puts out can be called bizarro, but an entire series about a death race where the cars are fueled by human blood? That sounds more promising than any number of tornadoes […]
SPACE TRIPPING is an extremely indie movie that may or may not ever be released, but the trailer is crammed full of so much futuristic weirdness and druggy comedy that I had to post it here.
Feast your slimy peepers on “Swamp Fist!”, the latest offering from The Slow Poisoner. Swamp witches, Trump decapitations, and moss mounds abound!
Straight out of Poland comes THE LURE, a sexy mermaid cannibalistic musical. And with all of those things combined it’s probably hilarious, too. It’s definitely weird, so check it out where available!
Flying Lotus is a rapper who’s branching out into the world of filmmaking, beginning with his first movie, a post-apocalyptic acid trip called Kuso. Word on the street is that this movie is aggressively weird and puts some people off… which makes it a must-see for weirdos everywhere.

Disgusting people. Disgusting food. Disgusting nudity. Hot pink clothes and weird murders and dysfunctional relationships. Love. Madness. Disco. All of this is encapsulated in the recently released The Greasy Strangler, a story about father and son weirdos in the vein of John Waters or Tim & Eric. This is a […]
That lovable pop star Beck has released a video for his latest single, “Wow,” and hidden among the surreal imagery, dancing girls, and all the pretty horses, there is bizarro author Cody Goodfellow, one bushy-faced cowboy standing tall in a sea of nothingness. That’s probably a good way to describe […]
If people are comparing it to A Nightmare on Elm Street, then it’s right up bizarro’s alley. Baskin is a Turkish horror flick about five cops who inadvertently wander into a dream-like Hell-like surrealistic nightmare world. Check out the trailer below.
There are a fuckload of superhero movies these days. So many that they’ve settled into a steady rhythm of diminishing returns. The bigger nd more mainstream superhero movies become, the more flawed most of them become. The good ones feel like the same story over and over, and the bad ones […]
A woman on the edge, living on the poverty line and fueled by drugs and partying, suddenly finds herself pregnant, only this pregnancy isn’t thanks to a one night stand. There’s a paranormal conspiracy afoot and the woman’s mind begins to shatter as her body undergoes a series of unnatural […]
The Fantasia International Film Festival is in full swing, and this week is of particular interest in bizarro world. Mixed in with the deluge of movies and short films on the Festival schedule are some short films based on the work of authors we know and admire. If you are […]
Most of “The Weird Stuff” is underground, but every now and then something VERY strange comes along with enough charm and smarts to push through into the mainstream. That’s what we have in Swiss Army Man, just released to theaters this past weekend. It’s a story that seemingly shouldn’t exist, […]
We bizarros love weird stuff, and we’re always on the lookout for oddities that the internet has hidden away. Thanks to one of my fellow weirdos I found this little short film from 2001, and since I love weird shit and I LOVE stop-motion animation, I knew I should post […]
If you’ve been around the bizarro genre long enough, then you know that Takashi Miike is one of our patron saints. Miike has made a ton of different movies but he’s never afraid to unleash mass cinematic insanity, whether it’s a horror film, a samurai film, or even children’s movies. His latest is […]
Why The Human Centipede 3 Might Be Smarter and More Interesting Than the Book You’re Writing and What You Can Do About ItPublished on :
by Garrett Cook A lot of people told me it would be a bad idea to write a blog post using The Human Centipede 3 to dispense writing advice. So I sewed them together. It’s clearly something that’s done nowadays. Sewing human beings together anus to mouth? Pretty commonplace. Nobody told me […]
by Tracy Vanity Watching horror movies is a staple all year for most of us and triples on Halloween. With all this extra horror film viewing comes the lists! Most disturbing, best Halloween 80’s nostalgia, best ever period! Since there are lists galore of best horror films to watch, and do feel […]
by Tracy Vanity After getting worked up over last season’s “Coven” and being completely disappointed, I was skeptical about the newest season of “American Horror Story.” Being a big fan of Tod Browning’s Freaks, as well as “Carnivale,” and The Pilo Family Circus, I adore sideshows and carnivals. The “Freak Show” theme has a lot […]
by Tracy Vanity What better way to kick off October than with a Halloween horror classic that’s about a countdown to Halloween? Unlike the other Halloween films, this movie has nothing to do with Michael Myers, who only makes a brief appearance in a TV commercial. This film stands alone in its […]
by Tracy Vanity Only a cenobite can making eating a pizza look fucking metal. The Hellraiser films are an essential part of any Halloween horror film marathon. My favorite is Hellbound Hellraiser. More pics at The Hellbound Web.
by Tracy Vanity In a town that never changes, children must work and adults get to play. But something is really off about this place called “Lantern Town”…first of all, there are only five children in the whole town and their job is to go out every night to look […]
by Tracy Vanity This first Bizarro short is pretty much Batman with clowns. I love clowns. Avey Tare from Animal Collective created this music video to promote his album “Enter the Slasher House.” Little Fang, the cat vampire-looking puppet, is from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and there is a serious nod […]
by Tracy Vanity Nothing is more soothing and inspiring than a dose of weird animation. Just like with Bizarro fiction, there are things you can do in animation that can be impossible to recreate in real life. Not only are all these shorts bizarre and well-crafted, they also convey ideas […]
by Sam Reeve Jim Tozzi of the band/art collective PFFR totally rules! You may not be familiar with his art, but maybe you’ve seen the ultra bizarro animated show Xavier: Renegade Angel? If you haven’t, check out the episode below. It’s quite a trip. PFFR created the show, whose main […]
