cult clas·sic

noun

  1. something, typically a movie or book, that is popular or fashionable among a particular group or section of society.

Cult movies are a hard thing to pin down since everyone has a different definition of them. Personally, I see them as films that gained popularity after their initial release. My top ten changes from time to time because I’m always discovering new ones. Below are my current favorites and a little insight on why I picked them.

P.S. Rocky Horror Picture Show will never be on my list.
10.) Night of the Living Dead – The OG zombie movie

9.) Big Trouble in Little China – John Carpenter’s it’s so bad, it’s good action comedy

8.) Mamma Mia! – Meryl Streep singing ABBA

7.) Mad Max – Kickstarted the cult classic franchise

6.)Reservoir Dogs – The movie that started Quentin Tarantino’s career

5.)Monty Python and the Holy Grail – British humor at its best

4.) Clerks – A look into the life of working at a convenience store

3.) Scott Pilgrim vs. the World– It perfectly sums up what it’s like being in love + visual gags for days
