ODDITIES THEATER: Hellraiser (1987)

Yo ho ho! It’s Saturday! And what do we do every Saturday? Yup, you know it… we get weirddddddddd.

Today we’re watching one of my all-time favorites, an absolute classic: Clive Barker’s Hellraiser.

The first time I ever watched this, my mind was bubbling. I was in awe of its originality. Such creativity! There’s truly nothing else like it. I like to revisit this one every year, and with the Fall weather in full swing, there’s no better time than the present.

If you like this, I recommend reading the original novella it was based on, The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker. I also recommend watching Hellraiser II & III, but don’t waste your time with the many other sequels. Like many of the characters within it, the Hellraiser franchise has been suffering for a long, long time. At least we still have those first few to go back to.

Alright, well enjoy your extra long weekend, everyone! Stay safe.

“We have such sights to show you.”

ODDITIES THEATER: Perfect Blue (1997)

It’s Saturd—wait, what? It’s… Sunday? 😑

It was bound to happen sooner or later. My phone buzzed Saturday morning, screaming at me to make an Oddities Theater post, but I was in mid-conversation with my girlfriend and I casually dismissed it, thinking there’s no way I’ll forget today’s post because this week’s film is amazing.

And then I forgot.

So, yeah… it’s Sunday. Hope you all still got weird on Saturday without me. For those of you who didn’t get your fill for the week, I’ve got a good one for you today: Satoshi Kon’s Perfect Blue. This one is an absolute classic. It’s so good that I bet you’ll forgive me for arriving late to the party.

Back cover summary: A retired pop singer turned actress’ sense of reality is shaken when she is stalked by an obsessed fan and seemingly a ghost of her past.

I was surprised I was able to find this one on YouTube, however it is a VHS rip and includes some commercials at the beginning. If you want to skip to the start of the film, you can find it around the 6:15 mark.

Happy Sunday, weirdos. Stay hydrated, avoid tolls, and don’t forget to brush your teeth.

I’ll try to be punctual next week. 😬

ODDITIES THEATER: Roujin-Z (1991)

It’s Saturday, people, and here at DoomFiction.com we celebrate by GETTING WEIRD.

So, let’s get to it…

This week we’ll be watching Roujin-Z, an anime from director Hiroyuki Kitakubo and writer of Akira, Katsuhiro Otomo.

If that hasn’t sold you on it already, I’ll clue you in on the bizzare plot: It’s about a sentient hospital bed going rogue.

Read that again.

You dont want to miss this one!

Alrighty, now I’m off to the Woodland Art Fair. Never miss it. Hopefully I’ll come home with a bunch of handmade stuff for my house. Can’t wait. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Talk soon.

ODDITIES THEATER: The Hoober-Bloob Highway (1975)

It’s Saturday and you know what that means, right? It’s time… to get weird.

Hey, guess what? Good news! A couple of my friends brought a new baby into the world earlier this week, so to honor this fine occasion we’re going to watch an old classic: The Hoober-Bloob Highway. This is an awesome animation based on a Dr Seuss story. If you’re familiar with it, you’ll know why I’m posting it. If not, you’ll see soon.

This may be the first Dr Seuss “film” that’s ever been featured on Oddities Theater, but it certainly will not be the last. He has so many great stories and many of them have been animated. There’s also The 5,000 Fingers of Dr T, but we’ll save that one for a later date.

Alright, it’s about time we get on The Hoober-Bloob Highway. Until next time!
