Are these cult films actually good?

Is it worthy of cult classic status?

What makes a movie a "cult film"? Cinephiles have disagreed over the definition for years, and no resolution has been heard as of yet. Some argue that a cult film is a box office bomb that gains newfound appreciation and adoration after its theatrical run. Some argue that a cult film is any film with a deeply devoted fanbase.

Regardless, films that have been given the coveted cult status have gained newfound love from fans across the globe. But have they earned that love? We're asking that difficult question today and giving you the opportunity to answer. We'll give you a film that has been argued to have reached "cult status" and you tell us if that film is actually good, and thus worthy of that status.

  1. Creature From The Black Lagoon
  2. Plan 9 from Outer Space
  3. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
  4. Nosferatu
  5. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
  6. Harold and Maude
  7. The Evil Dead

Watched the Creature From The Black Lagoon the very first night I was allowed to stay home by myself while my folks were out. Scared me stupid. Saw it again a few years later and.... Julia Adams, yow!

Anyone who thinks The Evil Dead isn't good can kiss my behind. Pink Flamingos is neither good nor bad. It''s its own category. I've seen. Lord help me I've seen it. None of you. None of you know a quarter of it.

" Anyone who thinks The Evil Dead isn't good can kiss my behind."
There's a line forming.... (59% terrible to 41% good) On the not thinking it's good, not the other.

Who knows though maybe that will change?

I believe the no's out-trump the yeses because some got scared of the horrible creatures that come out in the movie. If one looks at the USA IMDb rating (7.6) which is above average (average being 6.0) Though everyone has their own idea about certain movies. This horror genre flick can get to one with unpleasant images for some on certain entertainment. I did vote it an upswing. Though I must say TED has more then outrun its fame. Don't tell Bruce Campbell this but he's made a ton of (mullah) with on-going sequels. Sort like many others (Halloween etc.) Just the eye of the beholder when one makes their choices.

This is all subjective as to being right or wrong. But if you are one of those that deemed
"Nosferatu" to be terrible, turn in your Movie Watcher card, you have no clue and dollars
to doughnuts you never saw it in the first place. You probably spend your afternoons
writing to MeTV demanding they run Tim Conway's Rango series.

I don’t have a movie watcher card. Where can I get one?

Maybe they sell them in the MeTV Mall.

I was looking at mine just the other day. It's become so faded I will have to ask for new card.

66%. I thought Plan 9 From Outer Space was really good. After all, it’s based on documented facts!

Plan 9 was one of those movies that were so bad they were considered good.

I've never even seen majority of these, but I love my Universal Monsters so the Creature from the Black Lagoon was Great.

My personal favorite cult movie is "Colossus: The Forbin Project". It has quite a few TV personalities in it like Eric Braeden, Marion Ross, George Stanford Brown, William Schallert and Paul Frees. WOR-TV in NYC used to show that movie practically annually. It is kind of eerily on the mark given recent concerns about AI. It's also the movie from whence I got my Internet nickname.

It also had James Hong as one of the technicians. There was a quiz about his many roles here recently and somehow they left that one out.

I also got a 66. Did we pass or do we have to take this quiz again?

Yes, I know it's supposed to be a percentage thing. It's only 6 of the 12 that I've actually seen, though. Only one of the six did my good/bad selection differ from that of the great unwashed. (Nosferatu)

BTW, for any fans of Nosferatu who haven't seen it, you should check out "Shadow of the Vampire" (2000), about the making of that film. Willem Dafoe plays Max Schreck, the actor who portrayed the vampire - or was it a portrayal? [queue eerie music]
Lol, I had to answer the same way 😂

With no malice meant, "queue" is a line, as in "I was waiting in the queue for tickets"... You cue an orchestera or a performer. Please don't hate me for pointing that out...

I'll take a cue from that correction.

33% "I should like to turn into a sunflower most of all." - Maude.
Yes, and that's Ruth Gordon not Beatrice Arthur! After all, there were 2 Maudes mentioned today!
