These are 7 of the weirdest baseball movies you will ever see

Out of all the films on this list, this is the one you’re most likely to see showing at a midnight screening somewhere. Why? Because this anthology of three shorts features John Carpenter playing a Tales from the Crypt-style host as an undead coroner.

For our purposes, we’ll skip ahead to the third and final short (directed by genre legend Tobe Hooper!) that stars Mark Hamill as a ballplayer with everything ahead of him: He’s in the midst of a hot streak that’s put him on the cusp of reaching the big leagues, and he’s got a baby on the way. Unfortunately, he loses his eye in a car accident and all those plans seem dashed.

Fortunately, there’s an experimental eye transplant ready to get him back on the path to big league stardom. Only problem: The eye belonged to a serial killer.

Who will win out: Hamill’s star-on-the-rise self, or the murderer’s soul fighting for control? Pop this one on when the hour grows late, but be careful not to scare yourself silly.
