Movies You Must See Before You Die Wiki
Advertisement

101 Cult Movies You Must See Before You Die was published in 2010 and has films ranging from 1928 to 2005. Forty-four of the 101 cross over with the 1001 Movies list, while 57 are unique.

Many--possibly most--films that achieve cult status begin as box office failures, and then over the years start attracting groups of devoted fans. Some cult movies are very good, while others are so bad that they're good, and some are comic escapades, while many others fall into the categories of science fiction or horror. But all cult movies have one thing in common: they are films that refuse to die.
