Annihilation, They Remain, Black Mirror, Twin Peaks: The Return, Silent Hill, Bloodborne…Is The Weird finally oozing onto screens big and small, or has it been there all along lurking behind and between other genre labels? What are some past and present examples of effective Weird cinema in media other than print? What challenges does The Weird face when translated from the written word into the visual? Conversely, what are the strengths of visual media in conveying Weirdness? And where do visual creators cross the line from effectively utilizing The Weird to Weirdness simply for Weird’s sake? The episode concludes with Readings by Gregory Norman Bossert (1:06:07),Silvia Moreno-Garcia (01:14:50) and Marc Laidlaw (01:25:05), followed by a fond farewell to Orrin Grey and final remarks (1:41:36).
