Yeah, we already have a movie thread, but some times it gets bogged down in pages upon pages about the latest Harry Potter movie or whatever other retarded shit is firing up the megaplexes. So here's another, specially designed for lovers of all things cult: midnight movies, b-movies, roadside pictures, exploitation, sexploitation, blaxploitation, foreign oddities, experimental pictures, underground animation, cheesy horror and gore flicks, over the top action movies, camp, educational/scare features, queer cinema, dark comedies, epic failures, rock operas, giallos, women-in-prison films, kung-fu, cannibal movies, mondo movies, cruelty and revenge films, X-rated features, and everything else that gets marginalized by the "respectable" mainstream movie world.
We can celebrate the (non-)talents of filmmakers such as John Waters, David Lynch, David Cronenberg, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Terry Gilliam, Joel & Ethan Coen, early Peter Jackson, Russ Meyer, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Ed Wood, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, George Romero, Roger Corman, Tod Browning, Lloyd Kaufman, Paul Bartel, Hal Hartley, Jack Hill, Jim Jarmusch, Harmony Korine, Gregg Araki, Guy Maddin, Ken Russell, Jan Svankmajer, Nick Zedd, Richard Kern, William Castle, Paul Morrissey, Stuart Gordon, Alex Cox, Larry Cohen, John Carpenter, Pedro Almadovar, the Kuchar Brothers, Paul Verhoeven, and countless others.
So tell us about your favorite cult films, some memorable movie going experience at a seedy theater where you got mugged, weird releases you're looking forward to, a bizarre movie you caught on basic cable while you were half asleep at four in the morning, cult celebrity sightings/meetings, throw around your favorite quotes, or share anything else related to the strange and exhilarating world of cult cinema.
I'll start off by giving a book recommendation for anyone interested in cult film but aren't sure where to start:
It's full of useful information and is as fun to read as the movies are to watch. These two are also pretty good references:
