Editorial Reviews

A boiling, bizarre tale of a mad love that crashes through the supernatural! When an electrical accident disfigures the face of Cronin Mitchell, he also acquires strange psychic powers. He promptly makes a bargain with a witch who will restore his looks if he will become her lover. However, though the world sees her as a sexy cutie named Ellen, Mitchell's new girlfriend is actually an ugly old crone. After expelling a ghost from a funeral home, Mitchell next tries to discover the identity of a small-town maniac. However, the feds have also asked karate-chopping playboy Alex Jordan to oversee the case, and Jordan schemes to have Ellen all to himself--but not before Mitchell boosts his ESP with LSD, and Jordan is attacked by killer bed sheets. Honest. Like the title promises, "Something Weird," another crackpot gem from director Herschell Gordon Lewis (She-Devils on Wheels), is one of the most bizarre and outrageous horror flicks ever made, and presented uncut and in widescreen for the first time since its theatrical release!

4.0 out of 5 stars The seed of the Dead Zone? July 22, 2003
Format:DVD
Okay, where have we heard this before? A man gets into an accident; when he gets out of the hopital he is gifted with psychic powers. Later, his powers take him to a small town (in Wisconsin but not really) to try to solve a series of bizzare murders that have the police stumped?
I like to imagine Stephen King saw this movie while in college and forgot about it, then later it grew into the Dead Zone. But that probably never happened.
I don't know, I like this movie. You have your psychic, your witch who is beautiful to the world but ugly to her lovers, your serial murderer, your inept police detectives, and LSD. What could possibly go wrong?
Oh yeah, you even have a ghost.
If you had to take one movie to a desert isle where there's no electricity to run your DVD player (or TV) anyway, you might as well make it this one, because, while it might not have everything, it has quite a bit packed into it.
Buy it now!
The DVD has the usual assortment of delightful extras that Something Weird has accustomed you to. Plus, the commentary track is the history of Something Weird Video! There is no way you can pass this DVD up and still look at yourself in the mirror!

2.0 out of 5 stars A WEAK H. G. LEWIS EXPERIENCE July 15, 2000
Format:DVD
First thing,As a big fan of all the Herschell Gordon Lewis films I have found so far,I could barely wait to see this one,it sounded real interesting.Well...it is interesting,and funny.But it does bring a new meaning to the term "wooden indian acting"(and sometimes overacting).It's the story of a guy with ESP and his deal w/a witch to restore his beauty,and a psycho on the loose...ah what else? Oh yeah LSD.Anyway it's all a bit of a mess,but fans of this stuff expect that,it's just not as good as the Blood Trilogy or The Wizard Of Gore.And now to the rest of the DVD.Something Weird Video usually does a great job w/their H. G.Lewis special editions,but this time the whole thing is sunk by a LOUSY adio commentary where Lewis only speaks for about 10 minutes and is brushed aside so you can here the riveting and terribly recorded story of SW Video.A total bore.There is some pretty good old cheap short subjects about acid,but all and all,a letdown for only the most die hard fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably The Funniest Film I Ever Saw! February 8, 2005
Format:DVD
Come on past reviewers!!!

Where is your sense of adventure, and your sense of humor?? This isn't a movie that would win any awards. This is pure fun! I've watched it 5 times and still haven't tired of it! It's so bad, it's good! That witch is hilarious!!! What sarcasm, what wit! And the makeup!! She's worth the price of the dvd alone!!! Loved when she's sitting on the couch laughing at her new lover!!! She has a tattoo of lips below one of her knees! A real 21st century business-woman stuck in the 1960's. I really want to go drinking with her, bet she'd really put me in my place!!!

I agree that the acting is something out of a high-school production, I mean, killer bedsheets??!!....this has got to be a stroke of genius, whoever thought of it deserves kudos! The cheap looking ghost!!! the cheap sets! the bad music! Which reminds me, can anyone tell me if Janet Charlton, who plays the sexy secretary, is the same journalist Janet Charlton from the E channel?? Hmmm, she looks an awful lot like her. Same name too! I'm very sure she doesn't put this film on her resume!! What a way to start a career! LOL! Janet you rock, you haven't changed a bit since 1967!

This film is also packed with subliminal messages, moral themes, and extras from the 60's. It really is dated material, but lots of fun!!

Something Weird is not for all tastes, but give it a try, the used copies here on Amazon are only $3.99. Very affordable. You won't be sorry, I promise!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie January 23, 2012
Format:DVD
I liked this movie but you have to be into this kind of movie to like it. Most people I am sure just do not 'get' it. If you are into strange movies from the 60's then you will like it, if not then you will not understand why anyone watches it. It is a dumb but in a good way and does have a B movie plot. This is the movie(and logo and sound effect) that the Something Weird company ripped their logo etc from. It also has a commentary track which is great to listen to Friedman on. There is a related movie called the Psychic that makes a good pairing to watch together. It is explained in the commentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars B Movie Madness November 26, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a classical B Movie, in every sense. It is not for everyone, but it's quirkiness certainly fulfills all the expectations of a B movie afficianado.

I decided to revisit H.G. Lewis recently. Not a big deal, actually, although I knew I was in trouble from the start with "Something Weird". Since I've already viewed and reviewed all of his horror films, at least the ones that really matter, I suspected I would find little to like with this decidedly non-horror entry. How could a non-horror film from the Godfather of Gore match up to the sinew-ripping atrocities committed in "Blood Feast," "The Wizard of Gore," and "Gore Gore Girls"? I knew I would never see another tongue pulled out of a woman's mouth, nor would I witness Montag the Magician hypnotizing his audience so he could perform unspeakable acts of gory mayhem on unwitting young ladies. No more faces dipped in a deep fat fryer, no more heads crushed under a car's wheels. Sigh. I really miss the experience of watching an H.G. Lewis gore flick for the first time. I'm hurting over here! Maybe "Something Weird" won't be such a bad experience. Maybe I'll see a film overflowing with excellent performances from a talented batch of actors, lavish set pieces, and top-notch direction, lighting, and editing. What am I saying? This is an H.G. Lewis flick! He doesn't know the first thing about movie making!

"Something Weird" tells the story of an unfortunate wretch named Cronin Mitchell (Tony McCabe). In the opening sequences of the film, we see Mitchell dutifully performing his electrical engineering job as he tries to repair a power line. Tragedy strikes when he receives a jolt of electricity, falls to the ground, and then receives another blast of high voltage to his face from the fallen wire. The movie immediately switches focus at this point to the hospital, where we learn that the accident permanently scarred Cronin's face.
