25 of the Strangest Movies People Have Ever Watched

What's the oddest movie you've ever sat through that made you ask yourself, “What on Earth did I just watch?”

Someone in a popular online forum asked for examples of weird and out-there movies and film fans offered up some truly wild ones. Here are the top 25 responses.

Planet of the Apes (1968)

The weird approach allows Planet of the Apes to hold a mirror up to society, making a monkey out of our leaders and institutions.

Medea (1969)

Pasolini puts extra emphasis on the story's horrific climax by cutting directly after the title character's final line, resulting in an abrupt and disturbing close.

The Holy Mountain (1973)

Jodorowsky takes a surprising turn for the movie's end, jumping away from the fantastical world he had established for an unlikely fourth-wall-breaking climax.

The Wicker Man (1973)

When Lord Summersisle (Christopher Lee) reveals the true nature of the plot to Howie, the movie shifts into some of the most bone-chilling imagery ever committed to screen.

Soylent Green (1973)

Soylent Green mostly operates as an investigative movie, focusing on a reporter played by Charlton Heston. When Heston discovers the secret about the titular food substance, he bellows the movie's most famous line, “Soylent Green is people!”

The Conversation (1974)

More realistic than many of the other movies on this list, The Conversation is scarier in the way it feels part of the real world.
