The New Millennial Cult Canon

by Matthew Floyd
After dedicating several years of my life in studying cult movies, I’ve decided to make a definitive-yet-growing canon celebrating these remarkable experiences.

After dedicating several years of my life in studying cult movies, I’ve decided to make a definitive-yet-growing canon celebrating these remarkable experiences. I’m still scouting lists of cult/underrated/unloved/misunderstood/bizarre movies, so don’t expect this list to be stable. I’ll also include my resources used for this appendix; I deliberately included movies here that I myself would like to watch as a viewer. There were sadly some movies that I felt either didn’t represent the cult movie going experience or just weren’t up to my standards. If you readers do find some of these rejects fascinating, please suggest that I include them in this canon. Simply put, these are the movies that I would dedicate time to spend time analyzing when I have my blog up and running, or if I were to write a book on the subject on hand.

The Cult Canon will be divided into several eras; this one is dedicated to cult films released from 2001 to now.

Here are the sources I “borrowed” from to create this unofficial registry; more links to come in the following days/weeks!:
