Bizarre Movies

Zone Troopers (1985).  The plot description sounds incredibly cheesy: U.S. soldiers behind German lines in 1944 Italy are taken prisoner along with an extraterrestrial--and both want to get home.  It is actually a lot better than it sounds, with decent period detail, a Big Band sound track, decent dialog and a nice attention to 1940s pulp science fiction motifs.

Repo!  The Genetic Opera (2008) so bizarre in its description that just out of morbid curiosity, I watched the first couple of minutes.  No, a future where slashers repossess genetically engineered replacement organs just does not make sense as an opera.  Not even close.
