Some of My Favorite Cult Films Part 1

Hello fellow Movie Lovers! It’s time for a very special post! I have a very soft spot for the bizarre side of cinema, and think people can make some pretty impressive films with a low budget. The following is a multipart post about some of my favorite Cult Films, and a short spoiler-free summary of each. Be warned though, some of these films contain some pretty controversial content.  Let me know some of your favorites in the comments’ section below, and I may feature them in an upcoming post. Now, grab so popcorn, and let’s begin!

  • The Room Type: Black Comedy, “Romance”, Tragedy,  Directed, Produced, and Written by Tommy Wiseau Rated: R (Language, Violence, and Sexuality) Date Released: June 27th, 2003 Starring: Greg Sestero, Juliet Danielle, Tommy Wiseau, Carolyn Minnott, and Philip Haldiman Runtime: 1 hr. 39 min 

No Cult Film list is complete without this “Painfully Funny” entry. The Room is a massive train wreck created by the enigmatic Tommy Wiseau. It has horrible acting, a shallow plot, and is ironically funny as hell. The story is about a wealthy banker named Johnny (Wiseau) who has a backstabbing fiancée, Lisa (Danielle) that cheats on him with his best friend, Mark (Sestero). What follows is a horribly made love story, that’ll will leave you in stitches.  The film is known as the Citizen Kane of Bad Movies, and has a huge cult following. The story of the film’s production is also quite fascinating, and Greg has released a book on it called The Disaster Artist.

  • Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead Directed by: Lloyd Kauffman Written by: Gabriel Friedman Produced by: Andrew Deemer Not Rated (But Probably R for Gore, Blood, Sex, Strong Violence, Politically Incorrect Humor, Gross Scenes, Strong Language, Nudity, and Alcohol) Starring: Jason Yachanin, Kate Graham, and Allyson Sereboff Release Date: July 6th, 2012 Genres: Comedy, Musical, and Horror Runtime: 1hr 43 min

If you like incredibly comedic Body Horror films, you’ll fall in love with this film. Be warned though, it’s a Troma film, so expect gratuitous violence, sex, and other gross bodily functions. The plot tells the story of a military fast food restaurant called the American Chicken Bunker. It just so happens to built on ancient Indian burial grounds, so all sorts of chaos ensues. All of the main characters are named after fast food restaurants, and this really adds to the film’s charm. It’s also part musical, and the songs will have you dying of laughter all the way through. 


Asher’s Jukebox Part 167

Highlander (The One) by Lost Horizon from the album “A Flame To The Ground Beneath” 2003: Are you guys ready to headbang?! This is one of the coolest Metal songs I’ve ever heard, and it’s 12 minutes long! It starts with a bird’s call, and then Daniel Heiman’s vocals start up. They’re filled with cosmic passion and intense power. The piece has a great combination of epic guitars and awesome drum beats. The best part of the piece happens near the end, and this is where Daniel’s vocal talents shine. I highly recommend this piece to lovers of Metal and Hard Rock.
