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 Big Trouble in Little China

The Weirdest Movie I Have Ever Seen - BeatlesFan1964

Should be #2 next to rhps

3 The Blues Brothers
4 Monty Python and the Holy Grail
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 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

7 Blade Runner

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

8 This is Spinal Tap

This should be #2 next to Rocky Horror

9 Barbarella
10 Pulp Fiction

The Contenders

11 Office Space
12 Fight Club

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

13 Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
14 Fargo

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

15 The Evil Dead
16 Reservoir Dogs

This Is One Of My Favorite Movies - BeatlesFan1964

17 Clerks
18 Dazed and Confused
19 The Wicker Man (1973)

This is THE definition of a cult classic! - fireinside96
