Asher’s Cult Film Watchlist Part 2

Hello fellow Cult Film Fans! It’s time for another film-based post! A couple of months ago, I discussed some Cult Films that I would like to see. I had a ton of fun doing that post, so I decided to make a second part to it. I’d love to hear some suggestions from you guys, so be sure to leave some in the comments’ section below. Now, let’s begin!

  • The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension Release Date: August 10th 1984 Rated: PG Runtime: 1h 43 min Genres: Comedy, Adventure, Romance Directed by: W.D. Richter Written by: Earl Mac Rauch Produced by: Sidney Beckerman Starring: John Lithgow, Peter Weller, Christopher Lloyd, Ellen Barkin, and Jeff Goldblum  

Short Summary: This film, aside from its incredibly long name, is a pure 80’s Sci-Fi satire. The movies tells the story of Buckaroo Banzai (Peter Weller), a mad scientist/Neurosurgeon/Rock Star and his equally unique teammates. When an alien race from the 8th Dimension threatens to conquer Earth, Banzai and his friends must suit up for battle in order to save the world from total destruction. The script is chalk full of hilarious dialogue and unpredictability. This alone makes this film right up my alley. Also, it has an all star cast, and it’s always enjoyable to see Goldblum chew the scenery. I will definitely seek this movie out if I can find it.

  • Pan’s Labyrinth Release Date: January 19th, 2007 (In USA) (2006) internationally Rated: R for language and graphic violence. Genres: War, Drama, Fantasy Directed/Written by: Guillermo del Toro  Starring: Sergi Lopez, Ivana Baquero, Maribel Verdu, and Doug Jones Runtime: 1h 58 min Language: Spanish  

Short Summary: Pan’s Labyrinth is a terrifying and beautiful film by one of the godfathers of Horror, Guillermo del Toro. The film takes place in Spain during World War II and tells the story of Ophelia (Baquero), a young girl who lives in the midst of the battle with her pregnant Mother and ruthless Stepfather. Ophelia loves fairy tales, and runs into a fairy, and this is where her adventure begins. The creatures believe her to be a princess, and have information about her estranged Father. She’s asked to complete three horrific tasks, and if she even fails one, she’ll never see her Father again. This film immediately intrigued me upon seeing some of the grotesquely beautiful characters. I have yet to watch a del Toro film, and I believe that this one might be my gateway drug into his incredibly unique stories. Expect a HUGE review after I see this film.
