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.

While it's not especially easy viewing, and unquestionably not for all tastes, Santa Sangre is exhilarating, challenging, enigmatic and distressing, but entirely rewarding and entertaining.

Martin Unsworth, Starburst

The love child of Luis Buñuel and Federico Fellini (with a [****] by David Lynch for good measure).

Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy

Drawing on his training in mime and his fascination with Gnosticism, Jodorowsky converted a story about a bizarre murderer into a grand work of art, full of symbols and imagery that reach beyond language to something primal and original.

Noel Murray, AV Club
