Take a Time Warp With These 10 Cult Classics

A Redditor recently took to r/moviesuggestions looking for cult movies to watch with buddies that would be “great for us to laugh at or be mutually shocked…something that is over-the-top or weird in a way that's good to watch in a group.”  

As usual, fellow Redditors were more than happy to oblige. 

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The cult classic film, one respondent noted that it might be obvious but required mentioning, The Rocky Horror Picture Show tells the story of a young couple who spend the night at a mad scientist’s home. 

The Room

This beautifully incompetent movie about a man’s best friend and “future wife” having an affair leading up to their wedding is the most iconic cult classic that fans of ridiculous movies need to see. 

Troll 2

It’s not even about trolls and instead follows a family on their trip to the town of Nilbog, where their youngest son begins to suspect that goblins want to eat them.  

Dead Alive aka Braindead

The movie, which is an early work from The Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, follows a mild-mannered young man who is forced to combat a zombie uprising after a potentially mystical rat monkey infects his mother. 

Plan 9 From Outer Space

Plan 9 From Outer Space centers on aliens invading Earth and raising the dead to stop humans from creating a doomsday device that could destroy the universe. If it sounds ridiculous, that’s because it is. 

Phantom of the Paradise

There are an astounding number of cinematic adaptations of Gaston Leroux’s novel The Phantom of the Opera. While several of them would certainly be fun to watch with friends, only one received multiple mentions in the thread: Phantom of the Paradise
