The strangest movie I have ever seen was Blood Gnome. It was about this invisible gnomes (that could only be seen by viewing through a camera lens) and the attacked and killed people who participated in BDSM.

Invisible foes are all the rage for cutting expenses in movie making at least since Ator 2

We watched the Salvador Dali film Un Chien Andalou in my film history class... I don't think you could pack more weirdness into a 16-minute movie (though with Dali involved, you kind of expect something odd).

Barbarella is probably the movie that left me with the most "WTF" feeling, with Flesh Gordon as a close runner-up (which probably would've scored higher, but it was so bad I couldn't stand to watch the whole thing).

Funny you mention that, because that was the next song I listened to...

It's fun to charter an accountant,
And sail the wide accountan-cy.
To find, explore the funds offshore,
And skirt the shoals of bankruptcy.
It can be manly in insurance.
We'll up your premium semi-anually.
It's all tax-deductible,
We're fairly incorruptible.
We're sailing on the wide accountan-cy.

I think the tax-deductible comes after the incorruptible.
I loved that pre-movie!

It was the best pre-movie I have ever seen, not to mention the only pre-movie I've ever seen.

With some weird movies, I'm surprised that any company produces it, and even more surprised that anyone goes to see them, myself included.

I just watched Tetsuo: The Iron Man. Japanese movie about a guy who gradually turns into metal parts. Add it to my list.

Here's a screenshot:

There's also Tetsuo II, which I have yet to see, but am looking forward to it.
