One of the most difficult aspects of making a film is deciding what to call it – after all, lots of us go see a film based on the title!
Sure, “Jaws” pretty much nailed it…big shark, “JAWS”…I’m in…and when a movie has a distinctive, iconic title, there’s not much more you need to worry about…here are more examples of films where the titles pretty much told you all you need to know…
Yes, THAT film title explains exactly what you are about to see as well! And in that vein of “this film MUST be as bad as it sounds”, I offer you this movie title:
“I Could Never Have Sex With Any Man Who Has Such Little Respect For My Husband!”
First of all, what was the year 1973 thinking when it released this movie to the world?
That said, it’s not only a very accurate description of the film, but one of the strangest movie titles of all time!
In this sex farce, a couple of aspiring swingers rent a summer cottage in Martha’s Vineyard. There they sit around discussing the pros and cons of having affairs!
Of course they do!
This was an actual movie that was released in theaters…and here’s another wacky movie title that shares the same distinction!
“Psyched By The 4D Witch”!
Yes, it’s not only one of the strangest movie titles ever, but it was theatrically released as well! The early 70’s were obviously a gold mine for wacky!
I probably don’t have to tell you this, but “Psyched By The 4D Witch” is one of the worst films of all time…read all about it here:
Oh, Dustin Hoffman, REALLY?
While “4D Witch” will only be remembered by the people who made it, some of these strange movie titles had really big stars in the films – here is a great example – take a deep breath and try to get this movie title out in one sitting:
“Who Is Harry Kellerman And Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?”
What the? Well, this obscure 1971 film starred Dustin Hoffman as a song writer who cannot love himself, or others. So he spends his days with various women flying his plane, and dropping in to the world around him. Um, OK….
Dustin went on to star in some more mainstream movies with more straightforward titles of course:
Well, maybe not…you see, I wanted to share some of the funniest and most unique movie titles of all time – the films themselves may be good, bad or ugly, or in some cases, cult classics like this one!
“Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowl-A-Rama!”
This 80’s cult horror film starred Scream Queen Linnea Quigley, and was originally called “The Imp!”
You see, a bunch of sorority sisters are trapped in a bowling alley, and are terrorized by the afore-mentioned “Imp!”
To see more of this wackiness, and to celebrate Linnea Quigley in all of her greatness, click on my story here:
Finally, there is this gem…if you think I am joking about this movie title, YOU ARE WRONG:
“The World’s First Monster Musical!”
Yes, this is real movie! Time to embrace:
“The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!”
Watch this classic trailer for “the world’s first monster musical!”
That is, without a doubt, the most unique movie title I’ve ver heard…well, except for the others! So there you have it, five very strange movie titles…let me know which is your favorite!
