In case you missed it, I am a cult cinema fan. A friend just requested a list of weirdo / over the top movies, so I figured I’d share the goods with all of you.

This list is ALL OVER THE PLACE in terms of genre / pace / extremity / sex / violence or lack thereof. Therefore I suggest you look a film up on before watching. I also left out some movies I thought were too obvious (Example: I left off all Dario Argento films).

I know that several of these films have been released cropped (pan-and-scan). These versions should be avoided. Try to make sure to see all of these movies in their original aspect ratio if possible. Information on that is available on imdb.

If you are a fan of this list you should check out Anomalous Cinema – My own streaming movie recommendation site. Covering cult to arthouse genres on Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Hulu.

WHERE TO LOOK – I’m pretty sure if you can’t find these streaming on Netflix / YouTube or on DVD you can torrent them, but that would be naughty:
