Cult movies...

I recently discovered not one but two very unique and helluva strange cult classic movies that I never knew existed.

Stop me if you've heard of either of these.

THE CABINET OF DR.CALIGARI(1920.)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGdUG7TgCxA&t=194s

A very surrealistic silent film to be sure of,i'm taking the time to watch it very carefully.

VIDEODROME(1983.)
I really couldn't find a proper copy of the movie on YouTube,so here's the trailer for it,but man don't it look freaky.

Anyhoo,those are just a couple of odd movies I thought i'd share with any of you,but please let me know if there's any truly weird or rare cult films you know of.

Videodrome has aged really badly.
If you like the look of that try 'Naked Lunch'

Oh yeah,I remember Naked Lunch,man that was a mindwarp on the eyes for it's full frontal surreal-ness,whatta film!

Here's another pair I recommend..TETSUO THE IRON MAN and TETSUO II:BODY HAMMER!

You should read Naked Lunch. Very different experience.

Fair warning, there's like a 20 page section that's essentially gay snuff porn . . . that Burroughs claimed is an indictment of capital punishment.

Thanks for the warning about it Bucky,i'll keep it in mind,but I probably won't read it at any rate.

I did just read A scanner Darkly by Phil Dick,helluva lot better than the movie,yeah!

I hope they do a movie based on his other book..Ubik someday though.

Here's another cult movie that's all but forgotten..THE TOXIC AVENGER,remember that one?

TOXIC AVENGER...never forgotten.
Toxie 2 & 3 were pretty bad....BUT Citizen Toxie (number 4) is so demented and offensive that it is great.

Have you seen any Astron 6 films? Manborg, Fathers Day or The Editor. Very Low budget and pretty creative.

Altered States is a fun little cult movie.

Troll 2, so utterly terrible that it is great. So much fun to watch.
