What Do You Consider To Be A "cult" Film?

Thu Jan 08, 2009 5:26 am

The phrase has always made me curious. I know of a few that have loyal followings, even though many seem to be really bad movies.

I'm curious to know what you consider to be a cult film, and if there are any that you especially like.


Here are a few I'm aware of, though I haven't seen them all:

- The Rocky Horror Picture Show
- Myra Breckinridge
- Reefer Madness
- Tommy
- Metropolis
- Sordid Lives
Blank.

I definitely think A Nightmare before Christmas is one. I know of people that stand by this film for some reason.

Star Trek and Star Wars would be my bet for the number 1 spots ....  Wink Mind you, Star Trek really started out as a TV series, so that may eliminate it. But Star Wars for sure.

Quoting JCS17 (Reply 5):
The Big Lebowski (which I couldn't stand to watch for a second time, but others love it)

And add Napoleon Dynamite/Scary Movie series/clerks/any of the national lampoon crap for that matter  banghead 

I hate all these movies and I don't quite get how people even find them funny or why so meany people just think they're the best things to come out of hollywood, it's like I have to lower my IQ down to 20 if I want to laugh at them. Definitely aimed for the brain-dead crowd and prepubescent brats, and directed by the same type of people.


OTOH, I think most if not all of Stanley Kubrick's movies could fall into the "cult" category. I personally really like most of his movies and I find them very thought provoking, but lots of people find some of his movies too "deep" I presume and admittedly either you love them or you hate them. My favorites are 2001:Space Odyssey, Full Metal Jacket, and Clockwork Orange.

IMHO the best 10mins of any movie ever made are from Full Metal Jacket. Lee Ermy is just spectacular:

Napoleon Dynamite pretty much became loved by a lot of people. I wouldn't consider it cult classic by any means. It was a limited release that became a superstar. It was rarity, not a cult classic.

Scary Movie... the first one was kinda entertaining and a lot of people saw it because it was the "first of the farce," the rest sucked ass.

Clerks was horrible.

National Lampoon? WTF!?

Vacation was awesome.

European was alright.

Vegas was worth a smirk.

Van Wilder was a laugh.

The rest... ugghhh...

Manos, the Hands of Fate
Shock Treament (Rocky Horror Picture Show's 'Not a Sequeal, not a prequel, but an equal'.)
Deliverance

and
Mystery Science Theater 3000, both the awsome series itself, but also some the bad b-movies movies they riffed, like 'Manos..', 'The Brain That Wouldn't Die', etc

The description given in Wikipedia is as good as anything

Quote:
The term cult film is used to describe a film that has had little to no success commercially and critically upon its initial release but has later spawned a small, but devoted and usually obsessive fanbase, however there are various exceptions

Have a look at the Wkipedia article, as it gives some interest snippets of information and good examples of classic cult movies.

I see they include Plan 9 from Outer Space, which I would certainly agree with in the "so bad it's good" category. I'd also add Dark Star, John Carpenter's directorial debut, I believe, which is actually quite good.

Caddy Shack was a big disappointment at the box office when it first came out, Doug Kenney who co-founded National Lampoon magazine, wrote the script for Animal House, and co-produced and co-wrote Caddy Shack became extremely depressed by the negative reviews and the bust at the box office died while on vacation in Kauai with Chevy Chase. He was alone and fell off a cliff, some speculate that he jumped.

Besides Caddy Shack and Animal house was a huge cult classic.

Ah good old Troma. There's a studio known for producing some cult classics. It seemed like back in the late 80s, early 90s, on Friday and Saturday nights, USA Network's late night movie programing always seemed to have at least one film from Troma. The Toxic Avenger is still funny to me.

Those really are cult classics; they make you want to go and drink poisoned Kool-Aid...  duck 

I can't believe nobody has mentioned Evil Dead/Evil Dead II/Army of Darkness.

Even well-respected directors make cult classics early in their careers. Peter Jackson is a great example, with films like Bad Taste, Meet The Feebles and Braindead (AKA Dead Alive).

Yes, classic example of a cult film. It often wins "Worst film of all time" polls and is so awfully bad that it's considered good by many. In true cult fashion, it has built up a large, loyal fan base.

- Dr. Strangelove
- Parents (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098068/)
- The Producers (probably has transcended cult status since the success of the Broadway musical)

Probably one of the dirtiest films ever written by a woman. Paul Newman actually said that Reg Dunlop was one of his favorite roles. It definitely is the biggest cult sports film of all-time. Back when it came out, it was panned or given a mixed review; but over time, some of those reviewers changed their opinion of the movie.

I've lost count on how many times I've watched it; probably somewhere in the neighborhood at 25-30 times at the very least.

I would have to say the following are the three that come to mind

"Polyester" Divine, Tab Hunter and Stiv Bators, who could ask for more? This was my first date with wifey on Nov 1, 1981 (we still have the scratch n' sniff cards from the theater)


"Wings of Desire" Berlin before the tearing down of the wall add in a couple of angels and ad in the late great Solveig Dommartin and you have one fine film

"Dark City" love the whole film noir and Jennifer Connelly. Just keep the volume off until just after Kiefer Sutherland looks at his watch (the dang added voice over contains a major spoiler that nearly ruins the film

Interesting.... I have a film that I believe is becoming 'cult' status that I really liked when I saw it a few years back.

Well 2 months ago I was in Boulder, CO and stepped into a locally owned DVD place and there it was on the shelf - so I bought it.

If you have not seen it you must!

The movie:

Run Lola Run

I love it!

I forgot if it was this one or number 2 that had that crazy army sergeant in the beginning... hilarious but crazy at the same time.
