Top 10 Cult Films

Elizabeth Berkley in Showgirls

Showgirls (1995)
This film falls firmly into the "so bad, it's good" category, and has eight Razzie Awards to prove it, including "Worst Picture of the Decade." But it would not have earned its cult status without the rampant nudity, including stripping scenes by "Saved by the Bell" teen star Elizabeth Berkley. The story by writer Joe Eszterhas ("Basic Instinct," "Flashdance") is a dirty, improbable version of "All About Eve" as Berkley's Nomi ascends from a stripper in a seedy Vegas club to lead dancer in a (topless) casino show. But does she lose her morals along the way? Who cares! There's violence, lap dances, pool sex, drugs, lesbian sex, gang rape and, well, you get the picture. And when you do get the picture, make sure you get your hands on the NC-17 version, not the toned-down R-rated version.
