    A cult film (also known as a cult movie/picture or a cult classic) is a film that has acquired a highly devoted but specific group of fans.[1] Often, cult movies have failed to achieve fame outside the small fanbases; however, there have been exceptions that have managed to gain fame among mainstream audiences. Many cult movies have gone on to transcend their original cult status and have become recognized as classics; others are of the "so bad it's good" variety and are destined to remain in obscurity. Cult films often become the source of a thriving, obsessive, and elaborate subculture of fandom, hence the analogy to cults. However, not every film with a devoted fanbase is necessarily a cult film. Usually, cult films have limited but very special, noted appeal. Cult films are often known to be eccentric, often do not follow traditional standards of mainstream cinema and usually explore topics not considered in any way mainstream—yet there are examples that are relatively normal. Many are often considered controversial because they step outside standard narrative and technical conventions.

    yes i was a very confused child
    I don't know if you can still do it, but small theaters that showed Rocky Horror mdnire on Fridays would encourage audience participation, people would dress up like their favorite character and act out the part in front of the audience. Hard to believe that Susan Sarandon starred in the Rocky Horror.

    Sorry, about your Da

    Scarface I can see being described as cult. Its widespread appeal is nothing compared with Shawshank, even though that was a grower.

    Cult is a very subjective thing. Father Ted for example is a cult sit-com, yet ALL our Politicians and Bankers followed it's lead!

    I myself imagine cult to mean, not VERY popular but not without it's charm or occasional brilliance!!

    True, but for all wanna-be-gansters it's required viewing; hard to believe Shawshank didn't do well at the box office when it was first released.
