Phantom Of The Paradise

This is a strange one. It’s basically a rock version of (the already pseudo-rock) Phantom of the Opera. So, if you’ve seen that classic you already know the basic plot. But, this is also very much a seventies movie, which means that there are a lot of druggy, sexual weird things involved. Some of the music is quite lovely and I only wish that there was more of it. Also, the costume for the Phantom is really strange. He looks like a transformer or something.

Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls

Another one of those strange, strange seventies movies, BTVOD is shockingly funny, sexual and campy. It’s not so much of a break-out-in-song-for-no-reason musical, but it still is very much driven by music. The ending is bewilderingly druggy and doesn’t quite fit with the rest of the film, but it’s a good laugh. And, it was written by Roger Ebert (bizarrely enough…)

Forbidden Zone

This is the weirdest movie I have ever seen in my life. It is so incredibly bizarre that I believe everyone should see it at least once. Just watch the clip below and tell me it’s not the highlight of your day. It’s like some weird black and white dream. The music in this Oingo Boingo created musical leaves something to be desired at times and you have to search hard to find a storyline, but it is funny and demented and definitely a conversation piece!
