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 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

4 The Blues Brothers

The writing is fantastic, the action is out of this world, the comedy is spot on and never misses, the songs are extremely memorable, the cast is fantastic, the acting is great, the cameos are great, and the third act is one of the greatest car chases of all time. It's a masterpiece and more people need to talk about this movie. RIP John Belushi.

5 Monty Python and the Holy Grail
6 Pulp Fiction
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 The Big Lebowski

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

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.
