20 of the Best Cult Classic Films

By  | 

There are good films, there are bad films and then there are cult classics, which can fall under either of the first two categories depending on who's doing the judging. Some movies earned their cult status from the start — being so great that they spawned huge fandoms, merchandise, and even their own theme parks (ahem — Harry Potter).

Others earned their place on the list after being complete box office bombs, whether for weak plots, heavy doses of melodrama, or extremely violent scenes. But no matter how each film came to be on this list, they all have one thing in common: it never gets old watching any of them.
