18 Movies With the Biggest Cult Followings of All Time
Most people know Showgirls as the film Elizabeth Berkley used to try and shed her good-girl Saved by the Bell image. It’s also a surprise cult hit. The erotic drama about a Vegas dancer has reached cult status for a few reasons. One, its ridiculousness. It’s poorly acted and super dramatic and has become a bit of a comedy sensation. There’s also the taboo factor of a child star shedding her image – along with her clothes – on-screen. …which is probably why the film got a huge resurgence when it was released on VHS! The movie is regularly screened as a midnight movie and Showgirls parties are a totally real and assumingly-scandalous thing!
