(Posted: 9 October 2009)

Film Bizarro's "Strano Mondo del Cinema", or "Strange World of Cinema" (we really don't care if the translation is correct) is a list we decided to do as a fun thing a couple of months ago. The plan behind the list is pretty damn simple; it's just a long list of titles that are Film Bizarro-esque. Meaning: Gory, surreal, art house, experimental, sick, silly, underground, independent, and whatever else Film Bizarro stands for. So here I present to you, close to 600 titles you might want to check out if you like odd cinema!

Since we don't do overall ratings in our reviews, this is what these ratings mean:
10 - Perfect
9 - Excellent
8 - Great
7 - Good
6 - Watchable
5 - Nothing special
4 - Pretty bad
3 - Bad
2 - Terrible
1 - Pure shit
