Action movies and romantic flicks used to be the most popular movie categories but things have changed over the course of years. People are more inclined to watch a weird movie that has a chance of blowing their minds, rather than going to see another action packed superhero movie. The term “weird movies” is used quite loose and it doesn’t exactly define a specific category, but I’ll try to make it clear through this list.
“Irreversible” is definitely the first movie that comes in my mind when I hear the term “weird”. The movie is basically a horror drama and not many people will be able to watch it until the end.
Natural Born Killers
This is a movie about two people that became infamous after getting in the spotlight by the media.
Collin Farrell shows the entire world his acting talent in this weird movie about how a not so far away society is obsessed with couples.
A movie about an evil car tire, can it get weirder than this?
O.J.: Made in America
Just as the title says, this is a documentary about the life of O.J. Simpson and how he got away.
The Truman Show
A movie that plays with the idea that we’re always being watch by someone. Jim Carey is incredible in this movie!
Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Another awesome and weird Jim Carey movie. The entire plot is centered around a woman that’s trying to wipe her boyfriend’s memories.
The movie revolves around a young Joseph Gordon-Levit that’s obsessed with alien abductions.

This movie is so good! You’ll be able to see quotes from the Dude (main character) everywhere you go on the internet.
A movie starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, what do you need to know more? The only thing I need to say about Fightclub is that it’s a masterpiece.
A Clockwork Orange
Stanley Kubrick is the visionary director behind this really weird but incredibly interesting movie.
Lars And The Real Girl
First off, this movie will seem weird because it doesn’t show Ryan Gosling as a knight in shining armor that gets every girl he sets his eyes on. The movie’s plot is about a very shy man that wants to let everyone know that he is in a relationship with a doll.
This movie is set in a future society where a man (Joaquin Pheonix) falls in love with an operating system (Scarlet Johanson).
