Default Cult movies

Are there any other nerds besides me in here interested in cult film?

Here are some of my favorites:
Nosferatu (1922) - The first Dracula movie and the first horror film ever. It was titled "Nosferatu" and not "Dracula" because essentially they stole the story from the Bram Stoker's book without his permission. The actor's name who played the Count was Max Schreck, and it was in his honor they called the recent Disney creation "Shrek".

Other Dracula and Nosferatu movies followed, like Drakula (1931) with Bela Lugosi, Nosferatu the Vampyre (~1975?) with Klaus Kinski, made by Werner Herzog, and so on.

Shadow of the Vampire - it's a movie with John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe. In this movie Willem Dafoe plays Max Schreck, the actor from the original Nosferatu, only unbeknownst to the others, he is a REAL vampire, and he starts eating away the rest of the actors from the set

got to love that scene where Max Shreck grabs the bat out of the air and eats it in front of the other guys without missing a beat.

Plan 9 From Outerspace

Eraserhead- Has to be the strangest, most trippy things I've ever scene (and believe me....I've seen alot)

Brazil- Absolutely BRILLIANT! Terry Gilliam is an amazing visionary. The subtalties in this film (it's a film, not a movie) never cease to astound me.

I can keep going, but that's enough for now.

Of the ones already mentioned, I love Metropolis and Brazil. Totally two of my favorite movies. Eraserhead is awesome, too. I showed it to SWMBO and it started giving her nightmares.

I also really like Dark City, but my absolute FAVORITE cult movie without a doubt is Dead Alive. Peter Jackson before all those things like hobbits and elves... and production values...

I like From Dusk Till Dawn, it's sooo Tarantino :
