Cult films or cult movies, commonly referred to as cult classic, is a film that has acquired a cult following. Films are known for their dedicated, passionate fanbase. Films have multiple viewings, dialogue-quoting, and audience participation. Especially box-office bombs, and obscure films shunned by the mainstream and hated by critics. The hard thing is defining the term Cult film. The term cult film was used in the 1970s to describe really bad films and midnight movies.
Formula Behind A Cult Movie
Having a chainsaw is not a requirement for a cult movie but it helps. Blood, Gore, and teenagers always making the wrong choice in movies.
- Having Sex
- Hiding in the basement
- Hiding in a barn
- Running toward the killer
The best films I have found are the ones with a great movie soundtrack or the band with no acting skills trying their hand at movies. Hand it to some musicians who pull off the miracle and do pretty well behind the camera. Phil Collins, Dave Grohl, and Gene Simmons did well and never got nominated for an award. Gene Simmons in two movies one bad and one bad but cool to see him act. Give bands credit for not quitting their day jobs
Music Makes The Movies
Just a sample of great movies where the bands take the spotlights. Need someday to expand the list to television shows that bands appear on because it would be a fun list to do in the future. Some remember the band on the list. Some bands would like to forget that they ever had the idea to be in a movie in the first place. Drugs were a big part of the film industry. They had to be on drugs for some of these movies to be made. Check them all out with some of the best movie trailers.
