Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

Yeah, Boxing Helena was an odd one.  Saw it back '94 or so, I think it was.  I'd read about it in some magazine and thought, ooh, this looks interesting.  I had just seen Julian Sands in Warlock, and I'd always thought of Sherilyn Fenn as one of the most beautiful actresses of her generation (chick should have been an A-lister but for whatever reason, it never happened), so I went in with my expectations high.  Suffice to say, I shouldn't have.  lol

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

A Clockwork Orange: Okay this may seem a bit odd choice. However, there is a bit of horror, sci-fi, and crime-drama on this.  Many horror films have masked serial killers and this film did have plenty of that. Yet, this is not a horror film in the classical sense.  Some of the crime scenes or "true horror show" rivaled any horror film in capturing the terror of crime.

Troll: This 1986 film really didn't fit the classic horror story.  Could be described as a bit sci-fi, thriller, and horror.     

Some of the Stephen King novels that have been made into film as Firestarter, Maximum Overdrive, and even Cats Eye are not easy to classify either.   Could be described as a mixture of thriller, sci-fi, and horror.

Coonskin kind of a hybrid of animation, live action, social commentary, Blaxploitation, and comedy.
Intrusion one of those films made by the Avon film company in the 70s sort of a cross between a rough rape porn and a home invasion drama.

Gummo - I like a lot of the filmakers who ascribe to the Dogme 95 manifesto.  I love art house stuff...this one can't simply be explained away so easily.  Also contains some of the strangest imagery in film I've ever seen.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

Rewatched the INSANE, CRAZY, MAD, WILD as H3LL Begotten earlier and that's a freaking strange one, no doubt possible...

I watched Black Metal Veins a few weeks ago........Lucifer Valentine is just....well....

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

Freaks (1932)

Personally, this movie has nothing to do with horror, drama or anything else. It's a deeply human film absolutely unclassifiable.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

70's explotation film Ilsa  Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks.   Cool sexplotation and violence, pure cheese.  Not as good as the original but along the same lines.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

AMERICAN MARY.  I haven't a clue as to why VIDEODROME and ALTERED STATES are on this list.  Both, especially VIDEODROME sure strike ME as part of the horror genre.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

The Grey

Great Movie but hard to pin down to a single genre.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

Totally agree!!!

Yeah but man it's weird, so damn weird it's hard to pinpoint exactly what style it really is. And well, different folks different views, American Mary is much more true Horror to me than Videodrome.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

I know you nit-pickers would quibble over whether this is horror, comedy or even romance, so I'm putting WARM BODIES (2013) here.  Deserves the praise it got.  Highly recommended to those who've not yet seen it.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

^^^ To my surprise, I enjoyed Warm Bodies as well.  Sure it's basically Twilight with zombies, but the it didn't take itself deathly serious like that series did, and the quirky sense of humor worked a great deal in its favor.

I'll slap you with real unclassifiable right here folks.

Now this is really like the thread title... lol

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

Yeah-Teresa Palmer who I suspect is one of those "pre-discovery" performances.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

She already made it in I Am Number Four... tongue

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

I wouldn't call that making it?

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

^^^
I do, she was insanely great. Just would've hope she came in earlier...

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

But being great doesn't mean one has made it on the "commercially bankable" level.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

^^^
Fuck commercially bankable level...

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

So say I in most cases, but we were talking about mainstream DISCOVERY.  Your answer then counts as a misnomer.  Apples and oranges.

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

I prefer oranges. lol

Re: What's the Last Unclassifiable Movie You Watched?

So, don't talk about apples.
