I think we all know my affinity for cult films, and horror is definitely one of my favorite categories. Now that Halloween is over, watch some campy cult b-movie horror to extend the Halloween spirit all the way into November.
5. The Toxic Avenger
What kind of b-movie horror list would be complete without good old Toxie. This movie isn’t for the faint of heart.Â Not PC at all,Â but the Toxic Avenger definitely epitomizes “cult horror”. If you get offended easily, you might want to stay away from this one. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
4. Army of Darkness
Oh, Army of Darkness, maybe I should have made you number one. One part culty horror, one part Lord of the Rings/King Arthur gone wrong, this is an essential film to watch for a cult movie fix.
3. Rocky Horror Picture Show
It’s not really Halloween until I watch Dr. Frank-n-furter strut his stuff on screen in those amazing platform pumps. Some would argue this should be number one, but as much as I love Rocky Horror, it’s not the campiest of the bunch, and it’s just too much of a quality film. I’m looking for b-movie camp here guys.
2. Bucket of Blood
Jealousy and the Beat Generation, Bucket of Bloody is one part Allen Ginsburg mixed with two parts creepy.Â If you want a movie that’s visually inspiring with a plot that includes a jealous insane wannabe artist, this ones for you.
1. Blood Freak
Blood Freak is by far my favorite culty, campy,Â b-movie horror film. A 70’s classic that is essentially a PSA against marijuana, it’s one of the funniest and campiest movies in the genre. All you need to know is that there are cool ass leather jacket wearing girls, long-haired stoner dudes and a giant man turned turkey attacking the drug dealers of the neighborhood. As long as you don’t go into this movie thinking it’s 1. well made, 2. actually good and 3. at all scary, you’ll love it!
