Courtesy of Jen Speaks, here is a list of their top 50 cult films (it’s actually 61 films since there were too many to choose from.

1 This Is Spinal Tap
2 The Rocky Horror Picture Show
3 Freaks – this is the old b/w movie with the midgets, right? If so, then I’ve seen it.

50 Faces of Death, Vol. 1
51 Monty Pyton and the Holy Grail – we own, but I’ve never sat down and watched the whole thing. Have seen a good portion of it though.
52 A Clockwork Orange – seen bits, and read the book.
53 Mommie Dearest – LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie too.
54 The Princess Bride
56 UHF – seen bits. It’s so bad though.
57 Valley of the Dolls
58 Fight Club – at one point this movie is on my all time bottom five, but subsequent viewings (it draws you in) have removed it from that list. I can see some value in it – but not much.
59 Dead Alive (aka Braindead)
60 Better Off Dead
61 Donnie Darko – great movie, incredible soundtrack.
