In light of today’s installment of The Cult Club, we feel it’s a good time to ask: what, exactly, classifies a film as “cult”? YouTube documentarian Daniel Krone had the same question, and set out to answer it with A Cult Influence. While there’s not exactly a cut-and-dry answer in the video, Krone explores some of the elements intrinsic to a cult film, and the clips and posters he shows gave me a good idea of some cult films I should watch in the near future.
What do you think gives a film cult status? Do you have a favorite cult classic? Do you also think including Scott Pilgrim in this video was a little premature? I mean, it just came out last year and had a pretty large following from the beginning. Maybe that’s just me.[via /Film]
