Best Cult Movies

Cult Classic Movies You Must See

Here at GAYOT, we have a special place in our hearts for cult films. Sprung from the often-manic minds of fringe directors, shot on shoestring budgets and screened to mostly empty art houses, these are the misfits of cinema — the films the A-listers turned down; the films destined for limited release and DVD bargain bins.

However, the passage of time has been kind to this crop of fan favorites. While some are revered for their genius ("The Big Lebowski," "Brazil") and others are relished for their deliciously bad direction ("The Room"), all have gained a fervent fan base that can only be described as cultish.
