Ever heard or felt “delightfully weird”? If yes, then you might understand what this list is talking about. For years, plenty of movies has been released. Some were good, some bad, some so terrible that you can barely watch them, and then comes another category of movies. Well, there’s no name for that category, but we can explain it to you like this: ever watched a movie and felt, “Ah! Man, this is weird. But I can’t stop watching this!” So, we call them weird movies that are delightful to watch. Like, you don’t want to watch them, but when you do, you cannot stop watching and you cringe at the same time! So, here’s a list of weird movies that are surprisingly delightful to watch. Check it out!
1. Secretary (2002)
The movie is about Lee Holloway (Maggie Gyllenhaal) who is a socially awkward girl. Also, she engages in self-harm. However, things take a turn when she starts working as a secretary in a law firm and indulges in a sexual relationship with her boss Mr. Grey (James Spader). As much as the plot sounds weird, it tends to glue the audience to the screen. However, it was said that the intimate scenes in the movie were potentially harmful and weird. Even after all the ‘weird’ you read in here, you’d still watch it till the end!
2. eXistenZ (1999)
The plot is enough for you guys to understand why this movie is on the list. In the movie, there’s a group of people trying out a new virtual reality game. Here comes the mind-twisting thing, inside the game, Allegra Geller has created another game called “eXistenZ”. But, someone is trying to kill her and sabotage the game, so she and Ted must play “eXistenZ” to find out who it is. So, yes. It’s a game within a game! However, the movie is such that it makes you question reality. Even after such a plot, you won’t stop watching!
3. Donnie Darko (2001)
This is one movie that was disturbing throughout. However, it made it to the list because it somehow becomes sweet towards the end. So, you wouldn’t want to watch it, but you’ll anyway do! The movie revolves around a teenager named Donnie who escapes a terrible accident. However, after surviving that he makes friends with Frank, a rabbit who only he can see. This rabbit tells him that the world will end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, and 12 seconds. As a result, he commits serious crimes.
4. 12 Monkeys (1995)
This movie in itself is a spectacular mess. It’s about James Cole, a convict, who decides to volunteer to travel back in time to find out the main reason behind bio-terrorism and prevent it. However, things do not go as planned. He meets Dr. Kathryn Railly, a psychiatrist who convinces him that he’s delusional. When he returns to his present time, he starts hallucinating. Rest is for you to watch (only if you can handle the weird in this!).
5. Barton Fink (1991)
The movie is directed by Coen Brothers, best known for weird and quirky movies. This is one of them. It is about Barton Fink (John Turturo) who is a typewriter wanting to write a movie on wrestling. However, things start getting weird when he wakes up beside a dead girl. Also, he discovers the horrendous truth of Hollywood.
