Bizarre/Obscure/Underrated Cinema

***EDIT (March 30, 2014)***
Wow! I never would have expected that I'd get anywhere close to 100 likes on this list. Thank you all so much for the appreciation and kind comments that have accumulated over the past year. If anyone has watched something that they discovered through this list, I would love to hear about it! Whether it's a positive or a negative reaction, my comment space is always open. Thanks again, folks. :)

These are all films that I don't usually see being discussed or appreciated around many spheres of cinephiles. I don't exactly "love" them all, but I do think that they all should be seen by more film-lovers. Therefore, I recommend them all.
