Ok, as discussed on the horror thread, time for the combination poll. Anything that can be classed as "weird" cinema counts - horror, sci-fi, fantasy, things that were eligible for the cult poll. Superhero films are fine, as is post-apocalyptic stuff, some crime/detective fiction is fine too. Again, it has to be weird, odd, offbeat, unusual, uncanny. A Touch of Frost probably wouldn't count, the works of John Franklin Bardin would.You're also allowed to vote for works other cinema - literature, art, t.v., music, games, etc. Again, it has to be weird. Tom Waits is weird. Kate Bush is weird. Ed Sheeran isn't weird, he's just shit. If you're in doubt if something qualifies - ask. This isn't like the cult poll where something is ruled out simply because it's mainstream, so things like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter are ok to vote for here. List length, I'll take anything up to 250. Deadline - End of January. Email address will be added later.

I am so up for this - count me in.

Musician wise - can we vote for them as a person, then individual songs/albums as well?

Sounds good. Count me in. There won't be many times I can have LOTR and The Muppet Show take the top spots in a list!

Oh that's an interesting idea. Weird Tales did a Weird storytellers list a while back, focusing on people rather than works. Might be interesting to allow votes for weird people here too. And by weird people, I don't mean Matty.

But Matty's mum surely counts....I've seen the videos.


Awesome - could we also vote for weird unsolved mysteries or odd historical things like the Dyatlov Pass, etc?

Nah, it's always going to be LOTR that wins that one. But there'll be some Queen near the top as well!

Seeing as we can have historical thingummies, how far can we go. Stuff like Roswell and Flight 19?

As I said on the horror thread, I'm definitely in. And I reckon I could possibly do a list of 250, but I'm not positive.

Any chance of you voting for any classic Australian weird fiction? The Bunyip needs more love.

Holy shit, I almost forgot about The Bunyip! I used to love Bunyip at Berkeley's Creek but I haven't read it since I was a kid. A few years ago I stumbled across a coin-operated bunyip when I was in South Australia. It made my little cousin cry

The music video to 'I'm Going Slightly Mad' is weird. It has a kettle hat. And penguins.

I like Queen.....but I don't like that song. I may vote for that video though. Then, I may not.

I'm going to have to give this one some thought, one man's 'weird' is another's 'Saturday nights out in Glasgow'.

That's just it, people's definitions of weird can differ monumentally. I mean I can see why people would put high votes for Donnie Darko or Mulholland Dr. and they will appear on my list probably but there is much weirder films out there. I'd say films like Nekromantik, Holy Mountain or to use another Lynch example Inland Empire are much weirder then let's say Butterfly Effect.

If it makes it easier for you, I can tell you what my list will be and you can just vote for what I like.

And yep, that's the Bunyip I've seen pictures of.

I'm actually really curious to see your list. Knowing how obscure your film taste can be I'm sure there's some really strange gems on there

And it's a creepy fucker isn't it? We have a lot of weird urban legends

The director's cut of Butterfly Effect is weirder with the baby in the womb scene.

Everybody should vote for Aphex Twins music videos, especially Windowlicker and Come to Daddy. Oh, and Parabola by Tool, because, holy shit!
