The good, the weird and the not so profitable at the box office - these are the hallmarks of the genre known as "cult films." This week, '80s horror movie Fright Night is re-imagined as a big screen blockbuster starring Colin Farrell. In honor of its origins as a supremely awesome cult thriller, we compiled this list of 100 ultimate cult films, presented here from A to Z.

SPORK should be here.
The Sandlot is another good one that should have made the list. "You're killin' me Smalls."
Great list. There are a few obvious movies that are missing like Blazing Saddles and Space Balls but any list is usually going to be missing a few items.
Agree on Midnight Clear, I love that movie, too, but would a cult audience really show up for it? Midnight Run would bring a crowd, though, in my opinion, much like Fletch or The Goonies. Never heard of some of these "cult" flicks, but guess that's to be expected. Good list overall, I'd add Fast Times at Ridgemont High in The Goonies category. Saw it with a packed house that went bonkers for it.
Also, Midnight Clear and Midnight Run? I'm not sure if underated and underappreciated alone = cult movie. I've never heard anyone say "hey, we're all getting together at Jimmy's, he found a copy of A Midnight clear! Can you believe it? Guys are going to dress up as GI's and the girls are dressing up as Nazis"
Hey!!! Clerks belongs here, ABSOLUTELY, but why don't you use a pic from the movie!? Instead of it's sequel?
