Stage 32 Glossary
Cult film typically refers to a non-mainstream film that attracts a small but loyally-obsessed group of fans and remains popular and worshipped over many years. Cult films have limited but special appeal and often have unusual or subversive elements or subject matter. They are often replayed for repeat viewings and audience participation (and group identification) as midnight movies. Not to be confused with "B-films" (not all cult films are B-films).
