Top Ten Best Cult Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Saw it about 50 times when I was young during the 70's at the midnight show after partying all night. Great times were had. Miss them. Go Tim Curry. You made my teen and young adult years fun.

2 This is Spinal Tap

This should be #2 next to Rocky Horror

3 Office Space
4 The Big Lebowski

This is by far the best cult movie of all time if not one of the best movies ever

How is this not in the top 3?
Nonetheless, The Dude Abides

i love it

5 A Clockwork Orange

Muddled and slightly boring. Tries to be edgy but ends up just being pointless.

One of my all time favorites, and best of Kubrick. - Beatlesboy9

6 Fargo

Hey, I live right next to Fargo, and so maybe this makes me more partial to this film.

7 The Evil Dead
8 Reservoir Dogs

This Is One Of My Favorite Movies - BeatlesFan1964

9 Clerks
10 Fight Club

The best movie ever created! And the book is great too! Palahnuik is God!

The Contenders

11 Pulp Fiction
12 Dazed and Confused
13 Heathers
14 Night of the Living Dead

Top 3 - Strobo

15 The Room

Oh come on! That's a cheesy movie! - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

16 Blade Runner

Harrison Ford in a brilliant, darkly futuristic thriller and it only gets one lousy percent here? - Dave0the0Suave

17 Big Trouble in Little China

The Weirdest Movie I Have Ever Seen - BeatlesFan1964

18 Caddyshack
19 Yellow Submarine
20 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
21 Plan 9 From Outer Space
22 The Breakfast Club
23 Dark Star

What an amazing movie! There's just something indefinably special about it. The way the characters talk. The vibe. The subtle bits of humour. It's just a work of sheer genius.
