I've seen 25.

I still hate ERASERHEAD.

Deb said...

19...but several of those don't seem to be "cult" movies, IMHO.

/Where is DAMNATION ALLEY?

Bill Crider said...

Someone needs to do DAMNATION ALLEY for the "Overlooked Movies." It's on my list, maybe I will.

Richard Robinson said...

I e only seen 8 of them, but I'm not in a hurry to see any of the others.

I liked Damnation Alley. How 'bout Saigon Commandos? What about the gorilla wearing a space helmet? I forget the title, though I have it here somewhere. Gosh, there were so many.

Bill Crider said...

I liked it, too, but it was a disappointment compared to the book. ROBOT MONSTER is the one with the gorilla wearing the fishbowl.

I've seen 19. I am not surprised that Jeff has seen more. But, no WIP films?! That is unacceptable.

Okay, I had to count. I've seen 20. What wasted life.

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

Steve is right. No "chicks in chains" flicks? No CAGED HEAT?

And speaking of DAMNATION ALLEY, whatever happened to Jan-Michael Vincent?

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

Where is GATOR BAIT?

Yee-ha!

Bill Crider said...

The fate of Jan-Michael Vincent isn't a pretty story.

Seen Buckaroo Banzai, Time Bandits, Bother From Another Planet (but I'm a John Sayles fan), Altered States, Monty Python and the Holy Grail (of course I have, at least a half a dozen times), and Rocky Horror. Which is about 5 more than I would have guessed before looking at the list.

I've seen 28 and I also hate Eraserhead.

Bill Crider said...

Does anybody like Eraserhead?

Fun fact: Jack Nance, the star of "Eraserhead", had to maintain that haircut for several years because they never knew when David Lynch might have some available financing and they'd film what they could while the money lasted. Nance also uttered the memorable phrase, "She's dead...wrapped in plastic" in the opening episode of "Twin Peaks".
