Help us rally around a common weirdness

I'm looking for recommendations of movies to show at a movie party. I'd like to find films that are completely out there and just offensively weird and absurd in a way that would allow us all to comment on just how absurd they are.

I've been hosting a series of movie parties lately, and I've found that the best parties are those that center around movies that incite my friends and I to comment on them MST3K style. Movies that are really good, artsy, serious, etc. don't work very well because nobody wants to say anything during a really good movie. Movies that are just too easy to make fun of tend not to work either (Robot Monster was a dud). So far the best movies were ones that none of us had ever seen or heard of that turned out to be so completely bizarre that we couldn't even imagine what was going through the heads of the people who made them.
Movies we've watched in the past that fit what I'm looking for:
-Tetsuo: The Iron Man
-Tetsuo II: Body Hammer
-Turks Fruit (although that movie isn't really that weird)
