7 of The Weirdest Movies People Have Ever Seen

Movies are great because they can transport us to a world and environment that is different from our day-to-day existence. Some movies take it a step too far, and become a mental gymnastics course for those watching. 

We enjoy these movies and put a lot of value on the storyline and acting. Some of the highest-paid female celebrities are in these films.

1. Mother!

Mother! Is a lot to wrap your head around. It is an anxiety-producing mind wrenching film.

After watching this film, you may need to meditate and work on your optimism.

Rotten Tomatoes summarizes it with, “There's no denying that mother! is the thought-provoking product of a singularly ambitious artistic vision, though it may be too unwieldy for mainstream tastes.”

2. The Fifth Element

The Fifth Element was out there for sure. With its 1997 release, it was definitely a weird mix of characters and interest. One Redditor commented, “A bit wierd, but enjoyable nontheless.”

Rotten Tomatoes says, “A hodgepodge of elements that don't comfortably coalesce.” and “Besson's futuristic fable is flawed by a messy narrative which strains to incorporate far too many grotesque and eccentric characters.”

3. Being John Malkovich

This film is also out there. One Rotton Tomatoes reviewer said, “Kaufman and Jonze steer us through a truly twisted psychological and existential swamp.”

4. Bone Tomahawk

One Redditor says, “There's one scene in it that always sticks with me too 😬”

Rotten Tomatoes confirms the consensus that it is in fact out there “Bone Tomahawk's peculiar genre blend won't be for everyone, but its gripping performances and a slow-burning story should satisfy those in search of something different.”

5. Sharknado

Sharknado is intentionally random. Rotten Tomatoes says, “This campy franchise fuses two of the most fearsome destructive natural forces on the planet into a single entity and calls upon a motley crew of survivors to save humanity from its path of carnage.”

Even the movie cover art is has memes on it. It is just the title and then says, “Enough Said!”

While this movie is strange, over the top, and predictable. It is still very entertaining.

6. Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems is a hyper-anxiety-inducing film. To the point where it is actually entertaining to watch.

Rotten  Tomatoes says “The thing that elevates it above all else is the frenetic energy that infuses every scene, yet calibrated so perfectly so that it stays, barely, on the right side of frustrating. There's nothing more thrilling than that.”

7. Donnie Darko

One Redditor says “Donnie Darko. Seen it 3 times and I still don’t understand it.” to which another replies, “It makes sense on the 28th time.” This really summarizes the weirdness of Donnie Darko. It is just a lot to get your mind around.
