Cult Movie Favourites

When I asked Horror News readers and Facebook friends to tell me their favourite cult films, I got a terrific response. The suggestions poured in, and all kinds of weird, wonderful and outlandish films fronted up for selection. So while I can’t deny the quality or appeal of films like Reefer Madness (1938), Citizen Kane (1941), Glen Or Glenda (1953), Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes (1978), or The Toxic Avenger (1984), I can only count … Continue reading
