This week, see the first three minutes of a woman giving birth to a toothy Turkish alien baby, watch a Russian clock-maker try and change the world and enjoy the beautiful CG short The Ark in all its glory. What else offers you all these joys but your Sunday afternoon Cult Movie Worship?
A.R.O.G:. The Turkish scifi comedy A.R.O.G (which is actually a sequel to the earlier comedy G.O.R.A.) follows a man whose wife gives birth to an alien baby. Not only does the movie look great, but it's also pretty funny. Some new behind-the-scenes footage is included below, along with the older (but still worth a look) first three minutes of the actual alien birth. The film will be opening in Germany and Turkey in December, but we're still waiting on other release dates. Opening Scene:
