Kount Kreepy's Top 5 Headsy Movies

"If God dropped acid, would He see people?" ~ STEVEN WRIGHT

Mind melting? Skin crawling? Wallpaper/Carpet breathing? Can't tell if its sweat or pee? Then you need a movie. Here is my "Top 5 Trippiest Movies!". So here we go my little fry-bags:


Chevy Chase's first movie role, this bizarre movie, is a compilation of skits. Not only will you laugh, but you will scratch your head and say WTF was that?? This movie left my mind bent.


Originally a novel by William S Burroughs, then turned into a roller coaster mind f@#$ movie. Its very difficult to explain the plot, but it goes like this: An exterminator discovers his wife is stealing his bug powder and using it as a drug. It slowly descends into an insane tale of conspiracy, paranoia, and murder. This one will hurt a bit..and leave you stained...


*It was difficult to try and track down a trailer, so a sample will have to do

Well I should start by saying, if you are weak of heart, easily offended, weak stomached, or general take yourself and life too seriously, this movie is FOR YOU...If you know Gwar then know I will feed you to the "World Maggot". This movie is meant to offend and entertain, but also subsequently plays with your brain. I'd recommend this one to anyone else with a dark twisted sense of humour. Here is a WIKIPEDIA plot summary that uses "meanwhile" too much...

Skulhedface being the movie coinciding with This Toilet Earth, the story of both album and movie are nearly identical (though the album diverges from that story frequently). Skulhedface, formerly a beautiful queen of a peaceful, vegetarian planet, was transformed into a foul creature during a raid on her planet by Cardinal Syn, Gwar's eternal foe. She travels to Earth, where she is instructed to acquire sufficient amounts of Jizmoglobin, a blue bodily fluid that is responsible for the creativity, rebellion and decadence of all creatures.
Gwar, meanwhile, is hosting a telethon on their pirate television network, Slave Pit TV. The goal of the telethon: offer enough human sacrifices to unite tom with the World Maggot, which lies dormant in the Earth's core, and ride it off the planet. They are having an increasing amount of success, which draws the attention of GlomCo, an archetypical evil media conglomerate.
Boss Glom, the CEO, summons Gwar's manager, Sleazy P. Martini, in the hopes that he will sell Gwar out, reduce them to commodities, and ultimately kill the band to prevent any interference. Martini repeatedly refuses, until he is offered more money than he has ever seen in his life. At this point, Gwar breaks through the ceiling, and Boss Glom summons his armed guards. Gwar makes short work of the guards and the other board members, but Glom escapes to his private elevator. After that, Slave Pit TV is then broadcast to the public, having taken over the equipment as well as the corporation.
On the way down to a secret laboratory, Boss Glom is revealed to be Skulhedface, and in her laboratory, her assistant, Flopsy, assists her to a large Jizmoglobin extraction device. Rocker Sebastian Bach is placed in the device, his Jizmoglobin removed, and emerges a business type with absolutely no personality. Skulhedface starts to drink the Jizmoglobin, when a transmission from Cardinal Syn comes in - he will "be arriving in the next movie" (which he does) to collect Jizmoglobin and subjugate the planet (which he attempts to do, but fails).
Meanwhile, the telethon is still going well, and Gwar feasts their imminent departure from the planet. Beefcake the Mighty, however, spots Flopsy, who has come to lure him into a trap. Flopsy removes his face, dons it himself, and tells Gwar of midgets in the basement (with which they could sate their sexual appetite one last time before leaving).
When they get to the basement, they find Beefcake, tied up and without a face. During a conversation with Skulhedface, Flopsy returns Beefcake's face, and in return, decides to stick his fist in Flopsy's mouth (which is vaginal in shape). Unfortunately, he is too rough, and Flopsy dies.
Skulhedface reveals her greatest weapon - the Flesh Column, composed of the foulest of human pieces. The combined efforts of Gwar are insufficient, and they are subjected to the device, which is overloaded with their combined Jizmoglobin. Skulhedface is reverted to her old self, and Gwar into infants. Now benevolent, she returns their Jizmoglobin, and things return to as they were. The entire band (minus Slymenstra Hymen) rapes her to death, and they promptly return to the World Maggot. As they reach the surface, they see the World Maggot flying away, while Sleazy P. Martini "consoles" them and concludes the broadcast day."

If you can read that in its need more.....

Altered States 1980

A scientist's obsession with hallucinogenic drugs pushes him to insanity or genetic devolution. This movie can be a mind bender. 

Arguably any Wes Anderson film 

Life Aquatic

The Royal Tenenbaums

Wes Anderson has strange characters, situations, camera shots, music, hell movies in general...if you was want a safe trip movie, any of his films will do.

Some Honorable Mentions: 

Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas!
- The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai
- Firestarter

*By no means is this a definitive list

Evil von Scarrys twisted movies for altered minds top 5

So you've got it made sitting in the double wide with orange shag carpeting, lava lamp under the velvet painting of Elvis. Feeling bored and nothing on the boob tube. Well you need some twisted movies for your altered mind........

We have our usual suspects of more recent cinema like Being John Malkovich and older "cult" classics such as Rocky Horror Picture Show or for the cine-nerd THX 1138.
Theres a few gems out there of strange movies made for weird folks.  Here's a few that may have missed Just my top 5 fucked up movies.

1/ Blue Velvet (1986):
Wow where do I start. Quick summation. Man finds a severed ear in a field, tries to figure out how it got there and gets sucked into the evil underbelly of his local town. 

2/ Donnie Darko (2001):
Time travel and strange people who dress in metallic bunny masks.

3/ Repo Man (1984):
awesome punk rock sound track, young man becomes a repo man. A repo notice goes out on a car that happens to have a dead alien in the trunk and a slowly dying government scientist (who is also slowly going crazy).

4/ Time Bandits (1981):
young boy travels through time and dimensions with a group of dwarves intent on looting.

5/ In the Mouth of Madness (1994)
An H.P. Lovecraft inspired film by John Carpenter. A book that apparently causes people to go crazy, problem is the places mentioned in the book exist. Or do they? Muhahhahahahaha. 

 honorable mentions- (with some interesting links)

ok The Wizard of Oz ( and the "soul" version called  The Wiz is a must see) apparently can be synced to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. There's a whole group of people out there who spend time and money syncing iconic albums with movies saying they mesh. Dunno but sounds neat.

Rocky Horror Picture Show, any given Tarantino film, Doctor Strangelove, Hellraiser, A Clockwork Orange, Naked Lunch, Monty Python movies, Sleepaway Camp, Requiem for a Dream, One Hour Photo (probably the best thing Robin Williams ever did) , Harold and Kumar movies, Jay and SilentBob, Drug Store Cowboy, Jacobs Ladder, Kentucky Fried Movie.

If I missed any you feel needs to be considered let us know. If I haven't seen it then I just might. -EvS

Necroscope THE MOVIE IS COMING! Who would you cast?

Harry Keogh (born Harry Snaith) is born with the ability to speak to the dead. As he grows up and his power manifests itself, he befriends the dead. From them he learns that death is not the end, that once the bodies die the mind goes on, and the dead continue to do in death what they did in life. From him, the once silent Great Majority learns to communicate amongst themselves, and love him for it. In turn, they offer him their knowledge. From a former maths teacher he discovers his own mathematical genius, and an ex-army sergeant teaches him self-defense.

As the years go by, he has recurring dreams about his mother, dead after an alleged ice-skating accident but in reality murdered by her husband and Harry's stepfather Victor Shukshin. Shukshin is a psychic sensitive, a defector sleeper agent planted by the Soviet E-Branch. In his self-appointed mission to avenge his mother's death, Harry is dragged into a web of espionage (actually, ESPionage) involving the British and Soviet ESP agencies.
This leads to Harry learning to use the Möbius Continuum (from its discoverer, August Ferdinand Möbius himself, at his grave in Leipzig, Germany), which allows him to instantaneously transport himself anywhere in the world, and pits him head to head against Boris Dragosani, a necromancer and fledgling vampire.

Soon to be a movie?? or TV series??Glenn Hetrick announced his project on SyFy's Faceoff

We can only wait to see how this develops. Who would you cast for the movie?

Cyberpunk here we come! Synthetic skin

Material World
Human skin is a hard system to emulate, but that hasn't stopped Stanford scientists from producing a touch-sensitive material that can heal itself at room temperature.

Self-Healing, Touch-Sensitive Synthetic Skin Linda A. Cicero, Stanford News Service
Before we can construct the realistic humanoid robots that populate our most vivid sci-fi-driven dreams, there are a lot of human systems that researchers are going to have to emulate synthetically. Not the least challenging is human skin; filled with nerve endings and able to heal itself over time, our skin serves as both a massive sensory system and a barrier between our innards and the outside world. Now, an interdisciplinary team of Stanford researchers has created the first synthetic material that is both self-healing at room temperature and sensitive to touch--a breakthrough that could be the beginnings of a new kind of robot skin (and in the meantime enjoy much more practical applications like enhanced prosthetics).
The Stanford material is far from the first self-healing plastic or polymer, but it does enjoy some benefits that set it apart. For one, many self-healing materials require some kind of catalyst or special condition to heal up, things like exposure to high temperature or certain spectrums of light. Others can heal up at room temperature, but they generally can only do so once--the act of healing alters their chemical structure such that they cannot do it a second time, much less a third or fourth.
Then, if an analog for skin is what you’re truly looking for, there’s the problem with touch sensitivity. Most plastics, polymers, and such--the primary materials used in self-healing research--are fantastic insulators. But to imbue a material with a sense of touch--and to make it interface with a larger digital system--you really want something conductive. That’s where the Stanford team has really broken new ground. Its material can repair cuts or tears in itself at room temperature multiple times, and it is conductive.
How did the researchers pull it off? They started with a plastic consisting of molecular chains joined by simple hydrogen bonds. This imparts the self-healing ability, as the bonds can be easily broken but also easily reconstituted by simply putting the broken chains back in contact with each other. In the lab, the researchers severed a piece of the material completely, creating two separate halves. After pressing the cut edge back together for just a few seconds, three-quarters of its prior strength had been restored. Within half an hour it returned to nearly 100 percent strength. After 50 such trials, the material still healed up nicely.
Then, to achieve conductivity, the researchers distributed nickel particles throughout their plastic. These nickel particles not only increase the material’s mechanical strength, but also serve as a means for electrons to move through the material, hopping from one particle to the next, creating an electric current. Bending, flexing, or otherwise warping the material changes the distance between the nickel particles, altering the material's resistance to the current. That electrical resistance can be measured to determine the shape of the skin and any pressure being exerted on it.
It’s easy to envision something like this being integrated into future prosthetics to help restore a sense of touch to those missing a limb. More immediately, such a material could be used to sheathe other electronics to give them a self-healing capacity. The findings were published in the November 11 issue of the journal Nature Nanotechnology.
