Top Cult Movies List : 1 to 10
‘Friday’ starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker is about two guys getting high on a Friday afternoon while they work out how to pay back $200 to their drug dealer. One of these cult classic movies with a simple plot but also very funny. The pair run into a bizzare range of characters and the viewer won’t get bored giving it a worthy placement in the top cult movies list.
#9: Bad Taste
‘Bad Taste’ is a pretty off the wall classic cult film directed by Peter Jackson (he also stars in it too). “The bastards have landed” and they are here to chase and kill humans for their intergalactic restaurant chain. Yep, you don’t get much madder than that. Action packed, funny and pretty gory – Peter Jackson’s older stuff was always a laugh.
‘Coffy’ starring Pam Grier and directed by legendary cult film director Jack Hill is a film about a nurse whose sister gets badly injured when she uses contaminated herion. She then sets out on a mission to kill drug dealers, pimps and gangsters of all shapes and sizes. Coffy is a top cult film action packed, cool for cats, blaxploitation and vigilante film.
Chopper is based on the Austrailian enforcer Mark “Chopper” Read. The film is based on the book written by Chopper himself and was and still is a best seller. Comedian Eric Bana plays Chopper and I believe the real Chopper has been sent back to prison (last time I read anyway). Great film with a cracking script.
#6: Killer Klowns from Outer Space
This film has trashy B movie written all over it. Still love it after all these years. Just a good fun, very cartoonish, comical and slightly creepy film. The title pretty much is the summary. If you have a phobia of clowns probably best to stay away. Couldn’t find it for years then it just kind of appeared out of no where. You’d probably not find it in the shops but I’m pretty sure you’d get a copy off Amazon.
#5: Easy Rider
If your a true movie fan of any genre I would say that Easy Rider is one of the top cult classic movies that should be on your list to watch. One of the first films to be shot out of studio, it helped create a revolution in Hollywood cinema. It’s a journey and drama film with great performances from Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda and jack Nicholson.
#4: Jackie Brown
Starring Pam Grier, and directed by Quentin tarintino. This film holds a lot of style. You can tell that Quentin Tarintino is a fan of Pam Grier as he considers himself the number one fan of Jack Hill who essentialy found Pam Grier and brought her into cinema. Good fun film, although not one of Tarintinos best.
#3: Withnail and I
Withnail and I is one of those cult classic movies that should be on your ‘must see’ list . It is a very funny english cult comedy about two unemployed actors at the end of the 60’s who decide to take a trip into the country. They meet some bizzare characters and a lot of people say it’s the English Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. They both definitely have their similarities.
#2: Truck Turner
It’s funny seeing Isaac Hayes as an actor but I suppose he’s done quite a lot of roles. Theres no question – he plays a great Truck Turner and he’s pretty bad ass in this blaxploitation flick where he’s on a mission to hunt down a crazy pimp. Stylish clothes and cool characters make this film one of the coolest in the cult and classic movies list .
#1: The Fog
The Fog was on television a few nights ago and it was definitely worthy of a mention in the list . The Fog is a brilliant film and has everything a 80’s horror movie should have; Ghost storys, big red telephones, hitchhikers, creepy characters and much more. Films like these have just faded off the film scene but this one definitely gains a place in the top cult movies list.
