Not sure these are cult films but have their fair share of geeks.
I don't know how well it fits, but I watched Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) the other night and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was expecting a total cheese fest but was surprised to find a really decent movie.
It might just be me since as a kid I had a reoccurring dream that eerily mirrored the movie (everyone I knew looked the same but was completely different, and they would chase me trying to turn me into one of them, weird I know, especially for a kid...) but I found the premise much scarier than anything I'd seen made in the last 20 years, and without reliance on gross out or jump scares. Really cool.
I've been reading Sci fi since I was 6. I'm not afraid.
Hilarious stuff on a budget.
I thought Baron Munchhausen was mush better than Time Bandits--btu they both had quirky fun and humour--as well as being entertaining.
then there is also the movie Brazil.
Take no notice. It's a great film.
Accusations of pretentiousness should be reserved exclusively for Eraserhead.
Eraserhead is filth. It's somebody's rendition of a bad trip.
If I want a bad trip, I'll find a cooker and name the alcaloids to be compounded (like strichnine) and fasten my seatbelt.
This is a fantastic cult movie!
