[e.g.: for the RC priest to use when called to give Last Rites to your suddenly-dying-at-home relative, just in case he lacked the presence of mind to bring his own sacramental paraphernalia.]

My parents had one lurking on the wall in the hallway for years. Decades. In fact, it's probably still there.
It always gave me the "I-don't-wanna-die-and-go-to-hell" willies. But what a surprise for the unsuspecting cleric or relatives to find a bit of the 'sacrament' in there, eh...
:lech:


It is, in fact, part of an old set, but i'm quite sure that there'll be no looking in it. All the relatives are lutheran, so they probably wouldnt recognize it for what it is. Abd besides, there's no pot in there anymore....

I think it might be a venial sin to let a perfectly good sick call set go to waste.
Use it to hide your stash of half-price chocolate easter eggs, or something...

Ok, while it may not be a movie, per se, They Are My Noble Masters is certainly one of the most peculiar anime I've seen, just based on the main character's sister, alone. I'm halfway through the first episode, and she's already pulled a camera and a spinach out of her bosom, and instant ramen out of her crotch, all to the "Ooh! Aah! *applause!*" of her brother (she apparently has 47 "secret tools" stashed about her person), and admitted in public that she has a brother complex. That aside, this show holds the record for the earliest in any anime that I've seen, yaoi or not, which a male character has revealed himself to another male. It's not even hentai (I think).

I'm going to enjoy this.

Did anyone mention "The Killer Shrews"?? AKA "The Attack of the Killer Shrews" (hell, maybe I did, but this thing is running so slow I don't want to go back and check...)

If those qualify for 'the strangest movie you have ever seen,' you need to get out more.

Okay, you're going to have to be more specific because I've seen all the mainstream ones and they don't even register on my strange-o-meter.

I'm referring to some old ones I saw on TV, I don't think they're "mainstream" like Batman Begins, they pre-date those. I can't be specific with names because I've literally just seen them on TV a few times. These are Batman & Robin films, BTW, not the ones with just Batman.

How have I never seen this thread?

Hmm... tough question.

I once rented what I thought was anime, but turned out to be weird Japanese tentacle porn. I'ma have to go with that one, La Blue Girl (sp?)

Thank you


You lasted that long? When hubby and I tried to watch it, I'm not sure how long we watched; it was only a couple of scenes, but it seemed like several hours. :grumpy:

Eraserhead certainly was one of the stranger ones.

We just watched Blue Velvet. More Lynch strangeness, but not quite at the same deeply disturbed level
