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.

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!
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!
"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.Read more ›

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.Published on November 26, 2010 by Bella Lugosi
