Weird, unconventional or truly transgressive, Cult Films push boundaries of decency and sometimes break cultural taboos. They can be soooooooo bad that they're good, and f*cking fun to watch, especially when you're throwing back a cold one with friends.

Join our Cult, most Friday nights at 10pm.

Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

..a must-watch for anyone who dug Star Wars, Alien, Halloween or The Thing...

... a grungy, darkly humorous declaration that, in the end, boredom and human slovenliness trumps technology and high ideals.

Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
