    Well i got an urge to see Pet sematary, and i found it on youtube, amazing. Another one is tinker tailor soldier spy. Yes the old one.

    I've got a LONG list of pre-1970 Criterion Collection films I'm interested in, but they're expensive, especially in Canada.

    Hopefully, the Criterion streaming service launching some time this year will alleviate things...

    There are tons of cult movies I'd like to buy but they are rare/hard to find and somewhat expensive.

    Many of them are horror/thriller movies such as "The Incubus (1982), "The Stuff", "Psycho II", "Poltergeist II", "The Funhouse", "Westworld"...many Stephen King based movies

    There are others like "7 Faces of Dr. Lao", "Sinbad Trilogy: The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad and Sinbad the Eye of the Tiger", "Fantastic Voyage"...

    Westworld; good shout!

    Love me some cult movies. Mostly horror; The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is unmatched.
    But The Fearless Vampire Killers is also a true gem.

    That movie is nuts lol. If you like something different and miss practical effects... this is your movie.

    I would suggest Evil Dead 1, 2, Army of Darkness, and Ash vs Evil Dead.

    For me Performance will always be the ultimate cult film - it’s got it all - cracking dialogue, sex, drugs, rock n roll....and murder.

    I'll watch The Great Silence tonight. Brilliant and brutal Spaghetti Western by Sergio Corbucci with the great late Klaus Kinski.
    Nice article about it here: https://www.nytimes....

    Logan's Run.

    I watch Westworld every now and then.

    Saw E.T. for the first time since it was released. Not bad at all. Ages well. Way better than Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, which doesn't stand the test of time. Cheesy, shitty and unconvincing scenography, badly written, parody of itself.

    The Wicker Man - an eerie, unsettling film (the original, not the remake).

    Not a movie but a series; Battlestar Galatica from the late seventies. Adama, Starbuck, Apollo and the Cylons. Great!

    Predator from 1987 with Arnold Schwarzenegger, cult sci-fi action

    Favorite horror films would have to be Texas Chainsaw (1974) and The Shining
    Favorite "cult" films would have to be Blade Runner and all 8 paramount Friday the 13th films (Not scary in the slightest, but entertaining as fuck).

    When it comes to retro horror (pre 1960's cultural boom), I stick with silent films. They manage to be both creepier and more disturbing than almost any other film due to deteriorated film quality, lack of sound (aside from atmospheric orchestral music written to be played in theatres), and limited film making techniques. Seriously, go watch "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" - it's purposefully expressionistic, yet is probably scarier to watch now than it was 100 years ago (2019 is the 100th anniversary of it) due to the things I mentioned previously. It's really unsettling to watch.

    In that regard "Nosferatu – A Symphony Of Horror" is incredibly creepy.

    Good choises here. Original Wicker Man is great! Maybe you would like Blood on the satans claw and Horror Hotel (Christopher Lee)too. And almost every Carpenter movie!

    Great old school movie. Slow burns to a climax that's 180 degrees from what you were expecting. And Kurt is always the man.

    Also dig The Guest from 2014. Has a cool John Carpenter/80s vibe.

    That was a great Spaghetti Western, one of the best. Corbucci is underrated. Companeros is one of my favourites aswell.

    Xtro - Very strange 80s British film about a man who gets abducted by aliens. Sort of like E.T., if E.T. were written and directed by David Cronenberg. Very much the definition of a cult classic, it bombed on release, but has sold well on DVD.

    Woodchipper Massacre - Another 80s one that makes Xtro look like Spielberg by comparison. No professional actors or special effects. Made at the height of the DIY shot-on-shitteo movement, but it has an odd, quirky charm. It's fairly well edited and well scored despite its production budget of only a few hundred dollars. I see it as an ultra-low budget John Hughes teen comedy that has woodchipper-based maladies.

    I like the sound of this - just had a look on Amazon and I'm going to watch it. I mostly watch French film but I like a bit of horror or sci-fi if not the silly overblown crap - British is fine.

    **EDIT** Thanks for the recommendation, Briany! I ended up curious enough to see this last night, and wow what a MAD film, really great! The imagination in it, the crazy thing they conjured up, it's brilliant. I love how random and weird the various things the aliens caused were.

    My favourite bit - the life-size Action Man - superb! The hot French girl comatose in a web, creating eggs was good.. Fab sex scenes as well...
