20 Weird Movie Scenes You Totally Didn’t See Coming
People watch movies for all sorts of different reasons. Sometimes, you want to watch a movie that will make you laugh. Sometimes, you want a movie to make you cry, or have to activate your brain to figure out what’s going on.
It’s rarer that people choose movies specifically for the reason that they’re weird. The movies on this list, for the most part, aren’t so over-the-top that you’ll have to stop in the middle and make sure that your head is screwed on straight. Instead, they are scenes with just enough oddity to intrigue and entertain us, without taking us too far over the edge.
20. An American Werewolf In London
The Scene: A deliriously nutso dream sequence in which David Kessler imagines the hospital under attack from a horde of gun-toting mutant Nazis!
The Weird: You might have been expecting werewolves. You almost certainly wouldn’t have expected the above!
19. Natural Born Killers
The Scene: The diner sequence, in which Mickey and Mallory lay waste to a posse of rednecks in supremely grisly style.
The Weird: As the camera lurches woozily around the diner, rapidly flipping between colour and black and white, you can tell that a storm is brewing. And when it finally arrives, its quite the head-rush!
18. Requiem For A Dream
The Scene: Sara hallucinates that she’s watching herself compete on her favourite game show, while her fridge steadily makes its way from the kitchen towards her armchair.
The Weird: Things get increasingly upsetting as Sara’s fragile grasp on reality steadily begins to ebb away, and her fantasy life comes ramming into her consciousness with extreme prejudice.
17. Being John Malkovich
The Scene: If the idea of a portal that allows one to experience the world as John Malkovich sees it wasn’t weird enough what would happen if Malkovich himself went through said portal?
The Weird: Charlie Kaufman is in possession of a rare imagination indeed. Malkovich Malkovich, Malkovich!
