18 Movies With the Biggest Cult Followings of All Time
The Princess Bride
The Princess Bride is such a cult hit you could likely see it playing in some movie theater today (there is a screening a mere half-hour from me tonight). Based on the novel of the same name, the film takes the tried and true storybook telling of a prince and her savior to new levels. It completely chops and screws the genre, giving something hilarious and poignant back. It was no big box office hit, but it ascended to cult status after its release on VHS. Movie star Wallace Shawn has said that, to this day, fans still come up to him and shout “inconceivable!”, proving his famous line will never die!
