Netflix has a massive movie library, which means the streaming service has films every taste. You'll find Oscar-winning dramas, big budget superhero movies, the latest Disney animated films, critically-acclaimed Netflix original films, and cult-favorite comedies. And mixed in among all genres you'll also discover some of the weirdest movies ever made. You can find some of the most bizarre movies on Netflix as long as you know where to look, which is why I've compiled a list of the weirdest flicks the service has to offer.
Some of these movies are quite popular and you've almost definitely seen them, but that doesn't make them any less weird. There are also a number of films here that are pretty obscure that you probably haven't seen, and again, their level of popularity doesn't really have any correlation to the amount of weirdness they contain. So I considered all genres and time periods when putting this list together in order to best aid you in your quest to watch stranger things. Uh, I mean stranger things as in movies that are more unusual than what you're used to, not Stranger Things the TV show, which you of course can also find on Netflix. Anyway, here are the 17 most bizarre movies currently streaming on Netflix.
This tongue-in-cheek retro video game homage is obviously meant to be as bizarre as possible, but that doesn't make it any less strange.
This film's backwards narrative put Christopher Nolan on the map, and clued audiences in to the weirdness he had in store for future films.
3'The Nightmare Before Christmas'
Now regarded as a holiday classic, this animated tale is still extremely macabre and oh so weird.
It's Mel Gibson using a beaver puppet to talk to everyone. So... yeah.
The most bizarre thing about this movie is that the Wayans Brothers' horrible white woman makeup manages to fool any other characters. They look horrifying.
6'Hell And Back'
A claymation movie about a couple dudes who go to Hell. I think it's a comedy?
You might not want to eat meat anymore after watching this disturbing parable.
8'An American Werewolf In London'
This cult-favorite horror/comedy remains one of the most beloved weird movies ever made.
This insane CGI-fueled nightmare was not what anyone was expecting when Warner Bros. first announced a Scooby-Doo reboot.
I mean... do I even have to explain?
It's a bunch of food obsessed with getting laid and discovering atheism. Yep.
12'The Last Unicorn'
This animated fantasy is a straight up 1980s acid trip, with a soundtrack by America for some reason.
There are so many bizarre, cryptic moments in this horror classic that it has spawned its own fandom obsessed with solving its mysteries.
If you've seen anything by David Lynch, then you know why this is on the list.
15'The Human Centipede'
Whoever though of this should not be allowed to make movies anymore.
The mid-20th century produced some of the craziest sci-fi films of all time.
A couple of yoga-obsessed Canadian teens do battle with Nazi sausages. I'm pretty sure Kevin Smith just wrote up a particularly weird dream he had and decided to film it.
These movies are some of the strangest you'll find on Netflix, so when you're looking for something other than the usual fare, now you know where to look.
