The term 'cult movie' was first used in the 1970s to describe the culture that surrounded underground films and midnight movies. These movies have aquired cult followings for their camp value (an aesthetic style and sensibility that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value). Other cult movies were controversial and suppressed at their release, but they are reclaimed or rediscovered. (Source: Wikipedia)

In May 2003, magazine Entertainment Weekly published a list of the top 50 Cult Movies of All Time. Which cult movie is your favorite? Or, which one seems the most fascinating?

Note: Movies with more than 100,000 votes, Documentaries and Short Films are excluded.

I didn't know that anybody considered Pee Wee's Big Adventure a 'cult film' but I guess if it came from EW (which by the way is a 'cra*py publication written by hacks) it must be so?

That said it would be a tie between:

Hard-Boiled

Pee Wee's Big Adventure
