What is the weirdest cult movie you have ever seen?

Recommended Posts

From Dusk Till Dawn (1996 version) with George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Quentin Tarantino, aaaaand.... Salma Hayek in all her hotness.... >:(



I'd make a qualification on that. The only good parts are:
- Cheech Marin.:D
- Salma Hayek.:)
I spent the rest of the film wondering how long I had to wait until it was over.[:/]

***In Bruges. B|



"In Bruges" is cult?







SMH

Oh, hop off your fuckin' high horse, quade. I caveated the shit out of that post and acknowledged it didn't really belong here.

How about "In Bruges is not really a cult film, but hardly anyone's seen it so I'm going to talk about it anyway even though quade will probably look down his nose at me?" Better? :)

Calm down. The horse isn't nearly as high as the mountain you're making out of the mole hill.

Fact is, it was a main stream film for a main stream market. Subject line is "weirdest cult movie," not simply recommendations.








(Obviously I'm not only a horrible person, but also a horrible moderator for hoping just once a thread could actually stay on topic.)

There is a nasty hole in my mind, called Naked Lunch (1991)



I was reading the IMDB description, and noticed Roy Scheider was in it, and the first thing that popped into my head was:

"We're going to need a bigger roach trap."

:D

So how would you define "cult movie"?

Some of them seem to be independent flicks, the the makers knew would never be big.
Others seem to be 'legit' movies, that their makers intended to be mainstream. They just didn't make it big for a variety of reasons (some marketing, some cultural, some just because the movie stunk).

And add "Dark City" to my list. Very strange, but very good. Critically acclaimed, box office dud. Saw that one in a theater with a date and we were the only ones there. Only time I've had that happen.
Of course, it had to be a movie that was interesting enough that I spent the whole time watching it.

Taxonomy in films has a lot of overlap, but generally and classically would be defined as films of a controversial nature with a a strong fan following. The term was also used widely beginning in the '70s for underground and "midnight" movies like the "Rocky Horror Picture Show" (although the first definition predates the '70s by a good margin, yet RHPS easily satisfies both).

Now, I realize RHPS might now have attained considerably more main stream status over its 40 year run, but when it came out in 1975 it was controversial as hell.

Edited to add:

Maybe this will help.

***Frankenhooker.
The title says it all!

For fuck sake Billy, this makes me want to punch people in their fucking faces.>:(

***A boy and his dog. 70's

Oh yeah, with Don Johnson. Great flick.

One of my favorites, maybe not cult, but the MST 3000 riff on an old B&W 60's movie, The Skydivers. Horrible acting, terrible plot, some great jump footage. Woohoo! :)
I've only seen it once, in the theatre, just after a re- release, 35 years ago, but I do remember thinking to myself: :o

Now I want to watch it with the 2015 filter.
