3 Weird But Famous Films That You Should Watch

We list down some of the films you may get a shock after watching, read on..

We all watch movies. Sometimes we like the movie, sometimes we just get a weird feeling. Here are some movies that will leave you with both kinds of feelings at the same time… weird, but good.

‘The Shining’ (1980)

This adaptation of Stephen King’s novel is now not only considered among the greatest horror films ever, but possibly even more impressively, one of Stanley Kubrick’s first-rate movies.

On one hand, it is meticulously made, with each and every shot carefully choreographed and most scenes filmed dozens of times before  Kubrick chose the best take. On the other hand, it is a complete mess, full of striking plot threads and incongruities. For both these reasons, ‘The Shining’ has attracted a nearly cult-like collective of fans and followers who long to discover its secrets.

‘Rosemary’s Baby’ (1968)

Roman Polanski’s ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ is a brooding, macabre film, stuffed with the feel of unthinkable danger. Strangely enough, it also has an eerie experience of humour almost till the end. It is a creepy and crawly film, and a movie stuffed with things that go bump in the night.

The film is primarily based on Ira Levin’s novel about contemporary witches and demons. But it is much more than simply a suspense story; the brilliance of the movie comes more from Polanski’s direction, and from a collection of truly inspired performances, more than from the unique story.

Polanski offers the target audience a remarkable deal of information early in the story, and by the time the film’s halfway over, we’re quite sure what’s going on in that apartment next door. When the conclusion comes, it works not because it is a shock but because it is horrifyingly inevitable. Rosemary makes her dreadful discovery, and we are wrenched due to the fact we knew what was once going to happen, and could not help her!

Mother! (2017)

A house that was once consumed by despair and hate is destroyed and reconstructed through the poet/God (Javier Bardem), and the mother (Jennifer Lawrence), who appears to have been around before. Albeit, she wakes up and admires the peace and beauty of her home till it is again destroyed by outsiders. In the case of ‘Mother!’, the mother’s trip is the opening of this merciless world the poet is trying to perfect.

This film is an allegory about the relationship between God, humanity, the Earth, and Mother Nature. Javier Bardem’s character, the poet, is God, and Jennifer Lawrence’s character, who is the mother, is Mother Nature. The house that the mother is continuously tinkering away on is the Earth, and every person that is brought at some stage in the film has a direct link to the story.
